Sony HMZ-T1 3DTV Headset Reviewed

Sony has been showing off their Sony HMZ-T1 3DTV Headset, their modern day take on the Sony Glasstron, but now it is working its way into the hands of reviewers. I have to admit that I am pretty excited about this headset. The basic concept has intrigued me for years. I am a bit worried after seeing pictures of the device on the reviewer’s head. Sporting OLED screens, I had assumed that the HMZ-T1 Headset would be relatively thin and lightweight, but instead it looks painfully bulky. Somehow the true size of the headset had never really hit me before. Getting my Xbox up and running in a game takes long enough already without trying to fit my TV to my head. Anyone else interested in strapping their TV to their head?

Before you even fire up this rig, you’re going to need to spend some time fitting it. You can make it fit comfortably, but it takes effort. Sony made it super-adjustable. You can move the speakers forward and back on your head, and up and down to fit over your ears. The backside adjusts in the temples just above each ear, and in the back of the head via two extensible straps with watch-style fastener belts in the middle. The top strap is sturdier plastic, while the lower one is more flexible. A hinged pad rests on the forehead.
