This week on Cult of Mac’s podcast: After spending a few days with Apple’s headset, Erfon and Griffin are ready to unleash their initial Vision Pro reviews. They’ve got some gushing praise, some mild concerns and some unmitigated gripes.

Also on The CultCast:

  • A sad Vision Pro “demo” shows why you should never try the headset with your glasses on. Book a real Apple demo instead!
  • The technology in Apple’s headset is astonishing. So are the immersive experiences. But is all that enough to justify the price?
  • Griffin talks about doing actual work while wearing Vision Pro.
  • Erfon reveals his grand plan for a new podcast called CultCast Off Topic.
