Avegant’s VR goggles look like headphones and are launching later this year

Avegant’s virtual reality glasses aren’t quite like anything else on the market. For one thing, they don’t use the same magnified screen technology as Oculus, Samsung, and most other companies. They use a virtual retinal display, projecting images directly on your eyes; it’s a technology that’s been around since the ’80s, but it’s rarely found in consumer headsets. And instead of goggles, they look like headphones. In fact, they are headphones — they just tip forward onto your eyes if you want to use them as a headset.

NFL fines quarterback Colin Kaepernick for wearing Beats headphones

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been fined $ 10,000 by the NFL for wearing Beats headphones, which are banned by the league, at a post-game press conference on Sunday, according to the Associated Press. Bose recently took over as the NFL’s new headphone sponsor, and as part of that, the league is banning all other headphone brands from being televised during interviews. It’s a potentially major hit to Beats, which has received a wealth of exposure from athletes.

The headphones were pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Kaepernick has an endorsement deal with Beats and has appeared in one of its commercials. He declined to say whether Beats would cover the fine, telling reporters, “We’ll let that be unanswered.”

NFL bans Beats headphones during broadcasts after push from Bose

Many athletes pump themselves up before game time by slipping on a pair of headphones and cranking up the volume on their favorite songs. But players are going to have to make a change to that routine, at the behest of the NFL and its new sponsor, Bose. According to Recode, the NFL has banned players and coaches from wearing any brand of headphones — other than Bose — during televised interviews and other on-camera appearances. The restrictions are in place during all games, as well as pre-season training camps and practice sessions, and it extends from the pre-game through to post-game interviews in the locker room up to 90 minutes after the whistle is blown.

The far-reaching agreement is part of a new sponsorship deal signed with Bose…

A lot of smartphones come with a basic set of headphones right in the box. But most of these headphones are pretty terrible, with a poor fit, mediocre sound, and a cable that easily turns into knots in your pocket. They are designed to serve the…
