Sony HMZ-T2 3D personal viewing headset priced at £560.

Sony has revealed a price for the HMZ-T2, the new version of its 3D personal viewing headset.

It will cost 70,000 yen in Japan and goes on sale there in mid October. In UK pounds at the current exchange rate, that’s equal to about £560. Prices and release dates for other regions are yet to be revealed.

As Engadget reports, the price is slightly higher than the earlier model released last year but this edition, which was announced at IFA recently, does have a few upgraded specs.

The T2 version weighs less, it has a newly designed headstrap for better comfort, earbuds are supplied instead of headphones, there’s a “Clear Panel Drive” feature to optimise fast moving content and support for the 24p cinema frame rate as used on Blu-ray Discs.
