On September 30, the Magic Leap 2 headgear will go on sale for a starting price of $3,299 (USD). The mixed reality device, which replaces the 2018 Magic Leap in size and weight, has a broader field of view among other enhancements. However, it is also more expensive, as was to be expected.
Magic Leap has already made the Magic Leap 2 available to a select group of partners, including the neurotech firm SyncThink and other healthcare organizations. In a number of locations, including the US (where it is sold through retail partner Insight), Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it will be open for general purchase in September. Launches are anticipated for the end of 2022 in Singapore and Japan.
The three headset sets mostly differ in terms of software support and intended use. The headset and a limited warranty are included in the $3,299 “Base” package. The $4,099 “Developer Pro” option increases access to early software releases and development software tools, however it is only available for internal development, not for full commercial deployment. The $4,999 “Enterprise” package comes with tools to manage headset deployment across an enterprise as well as quarterly software updates.
The Magic Leap 2 headset, the computer puck that drives it, and the straightforward remote-style controller are included with every bundle.
The core design is the same as the last headset, which went on sale for $2,295 and weighed 316 grams instead of 260 grams. Although still limited, its increased 70-degree field of view is substantially less boxy than its predecessor. The full hardware specifications for the Magic Leap 2 are now available on its product page, despite the fact that many of the device’s characteristics were revealed in January and Magic Leap has been discussing it since 2019.
Magic Leap continues to emphasize that the headset is intended for business use only, not personal use. However, after gradually adjusting its focus between 2018 and 2020, there is still no indication that the corporation will reenter the consumer sector, which is not unusual. Even significant consumer brands like Apple and Meta have not yet made mass-market eyewear public.
