VENICE, Calif., Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual Reality company ANMLY has announced the launch of the ANMLY Model A, a universal and modular VR system with built-in quality high- fidelity audio and a companion app, that brings an immersive yet affordable VR experience to a smartphone near you.
Featuring on-ear or over-ear headphone designs and innovative patent pending VR technology, the Model A, which is available for most smartphones, delivers rich virtual worlds with 45mm lenses for sharp, realistic images, crystal-clear audio and substantial bass. The free ANMLY smartphone app also provides access to a wide variety of global curated virtual reality content from music to meditation. In addition to the ANMLY app, the Model A is compatible with many other apps and experiences, including YouTubeVR, DiscoveryVR, Veer, Within, and RelaxVR, among others.
"Virtual reality is an exploding $4 billion dollar market, but there is almost no middle ground for everyday people to have a high-quality immersive experience using their smartphone," said Mikie Krisztal, founder and CEO of ANMLY. "Either they are spending hundreds of dollars on a bulky PC-based system, need to have a specific phone and operating system, or are using a flimsy, bare bones headset without quality audio, none of which are ideal for the vast majority of people to explore VR content."
The ANMLY Model A retails for $70 for the on-ear version and $80 for the over-ear version, making it accessible for people interested in virtual reality but deterred by the cost or limitations of high-quality systems currently on the market. ANMLY expects to begin shipping the Model A just in time for the holiday shopping season in mid-December. The free ANMLY app will be available for both iOS and Android.
Key features include:
- universal system fits most standard smartphones (works best with phones from 4" to 5.7")
- no special operating system required
- built-in high-fidelity audio
- 45mm lenses for superior visuals
- modular construction – can swap out colors, upgrade components and take apart for cleaning
- headset body dimensions of 5" wide x 4" deep are smaller and less bulky than other headsets
- durable EVA foam body is rugged, unbreakable and water resistant
- stylish design available in a variety of colors
"It's impossible to have a truly immersive VR experience without high-quality audio, so it's surprising to see so few affordable VR headsets on the market without it," said Krisztal. "With ANMLY, we look to redefine VR and bring it to the masses."
The company has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring the Model A to market.
