Pimax has always been praised for its image quality and wide FOV. To achieve this, a lot of parts come together, but at the heart are the glass aspheric lenses. Plus, they're interchangeable so you can switch between 42PPD and 35PPD.

The Crystal is PCVR & standalone VR headset, based on the same platform as 12k QLED, powered by Qualcomn Snapdragon XR2 & Pimax's Customized PC VR Engine Dual-processor chip.

In addition, wireless usage is possible in both modes, using wifi streaming, or the optional 60G wireless module.

Crystal Update July 19

Lighthouse faceplate & second lens update

Lighthouse Faceplate:

Lighthouse faceplate will be launched in mid-August, and the first batch of limited orders will be shipped by the end of August. Please stay tuned to the official website for updates and news.

The video of the prototype for lighthouse,click here.

The second lens in the box:

Pre-order deal consists of the standard 35 ppd lens (delivered) and the 42 ppd lens (yet to be delivered).

We are also working on a new set of lenses that will maximize the FOV. These wide FOV lenses will be offered to all of our customers as an additional accessory that can be purchased for $129 later this year.

We have received a lot of feedback from you and we learned that many customers are actually very interested in these upcoming new wide FOV lenses and would even prefer those over the 42 ppd ones that are exclusively part of your pre-order package.

The wide FOV lenses are much more expensive in production than the 42ppd ($30) ones. The reason for this is the material: just like the 35ppd lenses, the wide FOV lenses are made from glass as opposed to the standard polycarbonate material of the 42ppd ones.

We still would like to allow you to get the lenses that you actually prefer to own. Therefore there are 3 options you can choose:

1. Change nothing and keep the 42ppd lenses. These will be delivered to you once ready (1st batch will be ready in the middle of September) . The users who pre-order and pay before 7/31 would have this option. (And we will close 42ppd from Aug).
2. Cancel 42ppd lens delivery and get a $30 coupon instead of the lenses. This coupon can be used with accessories including lighthouse plate
3. Cancel 42ppd lens delivery and upgrade to Wide Fov Lenses for a special price of $59 instead of $129. First batch of wide Fov lenses will be ready at the end of September.

Please share your choice with us here.

*If you have purchased Crystal from our agents, we will offer the same options. Please feedback your option to agent who fulfill your purchase and our agents will collect and forward your option to Pimax. Pimax will deliver the corresponding sets of lenses to the agents. The agents will finally deliver the lens to you directly. 

*This deal will end on July 31,Customers ordering Crystal from August will only receive the standard version lens (35PPD).

Crystal Update July 5

Pre-order & shipping status update

Pre-order status:

Shipping confirmation progress:

Crystal Update June 30

Controller Tracking Issue:

This issue has been given high priority and is listed as a top-tier concern in our system. Our team is well aware of this known issue and has released a beta version aimed at improving the controllers performance. The release of the public version is imminent and will happen in the coming days. We are continuously working on refining it until it reaches perfection.

Eye Tracking/Auto-IPD/DFR Firmware Release:

We recently released the beta version of our firmware to our beta group and a few KOLs. The feedback we received indicates that the firmware has delivered significant performance increase. However, during this testing phase, we discovered a minor issue with the eye-tracking feature, which is causing glitches. Our main objective is to enhance the accuracy of this feature before making it accessible to the general public. We expect to release the improved version shortly.

Lighthouse Faceplate

The development progress of the faceplate is significant, and everything is progressing smoothly according to plan. We expect to have a demo of the faceplate available by Q3 followed by production phase.

Pimax Airlink Module (60G)

We are currently in the process of developing the module and expect to have a prototype available by the Q3.

Additional Lenses

Currently, we are actively involved in developing lenses with two distinct specifications. The first set of lenses provides a wide field of view (FOV) and a PPD value of 35. The second set, on the other hand, offers a higher PPD value of 42. We continuously collect users’ feedback and preferences. This feedback highlights the importance of considering and prioritizing this particular feature in product development or improvement efforts.

Audio Latency Issue:

Our software team has made attempts to fix it in previous beta patches. However, improving the audio quality became a priority over latency, as it had become unbearable. We are working on finding the right balance between audio quality and latency.

Crystal Update June 25

Crystal Status:

The hardware for the Pimax Crystal headset is fully functional, and most software features are working. Eyetracking, Auto-IPD and standalone mode will soon be enabled as well. Eye tracking is expected to be enabled by the end of June, and Standalone mode will be demod around the end of July as it is still under continuous optimization. Once enabled, users can update the software via OTA. We’ll keep you updated.

Fiber Optic Cable:

Staring from June 25,Crystal will resume shipping with the standard DP cable instead of the fiber optic cable used as a temporary measure.

Crystal Update June 15

Glass Lenses and HUB Kit:

Starting from last week, all headsets have started to ship including glass lenses. Starting from this week, all shipments will also include the Power hub.

Pimax has already shipped glass lenses to all users who received resin lenses, and the Power hub will be sent to all customers who did not receive it yet as well.

Broken headstrap clip issue

We still have received reports from customers regarding broken headstrap clips. After investigation, we have determined that the clips sometimes break during international transportation.

Our factory has now properly designed a new piece of foam for the clip area. After a series of drop testing, impact testing, and vibration testing, this new solution has been proven to be effective. The package should now be able to withstand the forces it will encounter during shipping.

We apologize for shipping broken headsets to our customers, and we’ll replace all of these with a new one. Thank you for your support of Pimax and for being one of the earliest customers of Crystal. We appreciate your patience.

Improved customer support

We would like to once again formally apologize to our customers that have encountered these problems. We hope to see these issues completely resolved moving forward. We will continue to strive to push the VR envelope and deliver the best VR headsets.

If you encounter any service or product problems in the near future, please contact us at support@pimax.com. The Pimax Support Team will respond back and work to find a resolution as soon as possible. If your problem has not been resolved for a while, you can also contact ceo@pimax.com, and we’ll read all your emails and help to resolve any issues quickly.

All Pimax products come with a full 12 month Manufacturers warranty. Even if you are out of your warranty period and you have an issue, let us know, we will work with the awesome team at Pimax to look after you. For more info see: Pimax Warranty
