All you need is a media player with TV-out capability and the myvu viewer.

There are earbuds attached to each side of the myvu that provide very good stereo sound. The goggles still allow you to look around either above or below the display view.

There is a comfortable nose clip on the myvu. For those that wear glasses, you can purchase a prescription clip-on that fits over the eye openings.

The N95 has TV-out capability and worked well as a test media player. The iPod cable did not work, but the Archose AV cable was fine.

The controller has a power button, brightness, and contrast controls. It also contains a rechargeable battery that offers up to 4 hours of viewing time.

The USB connection cover wouldn't seal back up after being opened. The USB connection is used to charge up the myvu, which works well with the Proporta USB mobile device charger.
