SAN JOSE, Calif., April 15, 2024 ~ Pimax, a leading innovator in the Virtual Reality industry, made a major announcement at their Frontier 2024 event on Monday. The company unveiled two new high-end VR headsets, the Pimax Crystal Super and the Pimax Crystal Light, during a live stream on YouTube.

The Pimax Crystal Super is an ultra-high-end headset that boasts an impressive 29.5 million pixels. What sets this headset apart is its world's first changeable optical engine, which allows users to switch between QLED and micro-OLED panels. This feature gives users the flexibility to choose the display that best suits their needs. The Crystal Super also offers a larger field of view and higher pixels per degree simultaneously, making it a significant improvement from its predecessor, the Pimax Crystal.

The Crystal Light, on the other hand, offers 16.6 million pixels and is more budget-friendly with a starting price of 699 USD. It retains the core specifications of the Pimax Crystal but removes some features that are not essential for PCVR. This has reduced costs and decreased the weight by 30%, making it an attractive option for those looking for value in their VR headset.

Both headsets were accompanied by another exciting announcement - the 60G Airlink module. This module utilizes WiGig technology to enable high-fidelity wireless PCVR, providing users with a truly immersive experience without being tethered to their computer.

According to Pimax, the Crystal Super will be available for shipping in Q4 with a starting price of 1799 USD (excluding VAT). The Crystal Light is currently available for pre-order and will start shipping in May at a starting price of 699 USD.

Pimax also clarified that they will continue to improve upon their existing product line, including the Pimax Crystal which was designed as a high-end wireless PCVR headset from the beginning. To achieve this goal, Pimax has incorporated advanced technology such as the XR2 chip and battery, which are essential for a seamless wireless experience. To complete the wireless solution, Pimax has introduced the 60G Airlink, which offers significantly higher bandwidth than traditional WiFi.

The 60G Airlink is priced at 299 USD and will be available for shipping later this year. Customers can pre-order all of these products on Pimax's official website.
