The headset includes two displays inside the visor, which is equivalent to a 100-inch 720p display, and also a set of headphones. While the looks are a plus, unfortunately the engineers didn't get around to including a headband.

Image quality wasn't too bad, but we can't see many people choosing one of these over a regular television (plus on the bus you'd just look like a dill).

Though it's supposed to be reminiscent of the Walkman, we'd still rethink the name.

The Headman was just one of many 3D prototypes the company showed off at this year's CES. Sony's showcase also included a 4K autostereoscopic (glasses-less 3D) TV, a portable Blu-ray player and even an OLED with autostereocoping.
