Sony has listened to their customers, and with their latest release of the Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D Viewer, this puppy is touted to be 20% lighter than its predecessor, making your experience of watching a virtual 150” display all the more enjoyable. Not only that, the sleek, streamlined look of the Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D Viewer definitely makes it a keeper no matter how you look at it, just like how their OLED VR goggles were worth ogling over at CES last year.
In order to help the Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D Viewer shed some weight, Sony decided to ditch the ear cups, while replacing them with earbuds. This should not really affect the audio quality that much, where your ear drums will still enjoy a virtual 5.1 surround sound experience. Alternatively, you have the option to plug in your very own pair of headphones and earbuds right into the head mounted display. “Detachable light shields” have also been incorporated to help prevent outside light from shining in.
Apart from that, the new and improved Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D Viewer will also receive a dual output switcher that allows others to watch other media while you play games, and vice versa. No idea on pricing and availability, but if we were to judge things by history, the first generation Personal 3D Viewer’s price tag of $800 might be a good indicator of what we can expect the Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D Viewer to go for.
