Xreal’s AR glasses gives wearers a virtual screen size up to 330-in and spatial audio

Xreal (formerly called Nreal) has announced the Xreal Air 2 and Xreal Air 2 Pro AR glasses for the US, UK, and additional European markets.

Xreal Air 2 AR glasses can turn whatever the wearer is viewing into a big screen experience, up to 330-inches. Featuring the latest Micro-OLED displays, the new Xreal Air 2 series is lighter and thinner than the previous generation, with a higher pixel density and improved brightness and colour reproduction.

They are the world's first AR glasses to feature the latest Sony's 0.55-in Micro-OLED displays, Xreal Air 2 series AR glasses offer 4,032 pixels-per-inch, delivering a virtual screen experience at 49 pixels-per-degree (PPD). The glasses offer a full HD display resolution of 1920 x 1080 per eye, contrast ratio of 100,000:1, and 500 nits brightness.

Each Micro-OLED display has been precisely calibrated to meet the Gamma 2.2 standard. Xreal Air 2 series AR glasses have a response rate speed of 0.01 milliseconds or less, and pack a fast refresh-rate of up to 120Hz.

The integration of smaller Micro-OLED displays means that Xreal Air 2 series AR glasses are approximately 10% thinner and 10% lighter than previous models, improving overall comfortability.

Xreal Air 2 Pro features Xreal Electrochromic Dimming that allows wearers to select the immersion level of their AR glasses virtual-screen experience. At the touch of a button, they can instantly select from three pre-configured immersion modes:

- Transparent Mode is configured at 0%, and blocks no light through the lenses, suitable for when users need to be aware of the world around them, e.g., wearing around the home, or traveling on public transportation.
- Productivity Mode is configured at 35%, reducing the amount of light that travels through the lenses, suitable for people who want to focus better on the task at hand without entirely shutting out their surroundings.
- Immersive Mode is set at 100% and blocks all light to give wearers the most immersive experience


An upgraded audio system includes unique spatial wrap-around audio delivery using an open ear design targeted only for the wearer to hear. This brings enhanced privacy and minimises disruption to others when in public spaces. EQ calibrated beamforming microphones help to optiise voice calls, and capture the wearer's voice clearly during calls, making conversations feel more natural.
