So I hVe thr Xreal 2 Pro ...not the ultra. I got it because I plug it into my DJI Drone RC2 controller and fly with it. It's really amazingly fun to fly with that thing. Make you feel like you are really in the air.

Good to hear! If you have DCS, do you think it would work well with that?

Do you also have/use the Xreal Beam module?

I have the beam because otherwise it drains the battery too fast. I also try watching Netflix etc., on it. The problem though is that Netflix still restricts resolution when you are projecting through hdmi so it's not as sharp. I have tried computing and web surfing from my laptop which is not bad. Haven't tried flight Sims with it because overall I like my monitor using tobii eye tracker for them

Do these have motion control/head tracking?

Xreal Air 2 Ultra which is launching now will have full head tracking. Xreal Air 2 Pro that launched last year does not.

How is the FoV?

I get the impression they look like watching a bigscreen TV rather than being immersed fully in a scene wrapped around you.

Per an article linked earlier, Apple Vision Pro FOV is 100 to 110 degrees, Xreal Air 2 Ultra FOV is 52 degrees.

They each can put multiple screens up, both in front of you and to the sides which can be viewed with a turn of your head as needed.

Yeah, that's a bummer. My Samsung G9 super ultrawide monitor has a much wider horizonal FOV than these headsets do. Looking straight ahead, the monitor completely immerses you in the sim or game, not to mention is quite useful for work.

Some are returning the vision. When we were kids Mom and Dad told us to not sit so close to the TV. I think the vision will cause eyesight trouble.

Not only that...

There is "crackgate!"

Cracks are forming on the covering/lens/whatever you call that bulbous glassy thing.
