Sony prices latest 3D headset
Compared with its predecessor, the new HMZ-T2, which costs $900, is lighter and supports native film speed.
Remember the original? The company has just developed an updated version, which will retail for 70,000 yen ($900) when it launches in Japan on October 13. The HMZ-T2 is not only 20 percent lighter than its predecessor, its redesigned head strap is supposedly more comfortable.
Other key new features include:
- Independently adjustable OLED lenses
- Native 24-frames-per-second film speed compatibility via a 24p True Cinema function
- Smoother onscreen motion, thanks to the extra Standard and Clear panel drive modes
- Game video mode
- Earphone jack
Admittedly, these enhancements aren't exactly significant, though this didn't stop Sony from pricing the HMZ-T2 at $100 higher than the old model.
