I've made similar blocker from a cold weather neck cover ( not a scarf). Looks pretty similar to yours. What I've found uncomfy - it covers your nose and makes it a bit difficult to breath. If you breath out it goes on the lenses as well. something with nose not covered?

Ours will not cover your nose if used correctly and blocks 100% of the light for a great dark IMAX like experience.

looks weird. definitely will need another strap over a head to make it comfy. inability to use your own headphones is more disadvantage than plus. Like diopter and IPD adjustment! FOV is the same as Sony. It's on my list now but it's a very long shot! Look at Oculus Rift - still nowhere near consumer product! a lot of promises and nothing despite raising $75M for development! Make people sick and tired waiting. These guys have not even started yet but we'll see...

Yes, I wear mine over my nose often as it don't bother me. But you can raise it so it's not over your nose and use it just fine.

With the T3, we may even redesign it a bit before shipping them to make it better.

Ok - thanks for the explanation. I understand it's handmade production and shipping from Japan but I think the price is a bit stiff for most... Your comfort mod looks nice so.....

Just called the Sony Store in the Eaton Center here and they had no clue when they would ever get it.

So I checked the Sony Canada website which had turned up blank previously, and had a serious WTF moment

eek.gif CAD $1,299.99 + 13% tax = $1,468.99 eek.gif

http://store.sony.ca/wearable-hdtv-2d-3d-virtual-7.1-surround-sound-zid31-HMZT3W/cat-31-catid-3D-Personal-Viewer?_t=pfm%3Dcategory

At that rate, the wired version, if it ever even shows up outside Japan will be at least $1K in Canada making it not even close to being worth it.

Asian version of the T3 supports a higher colour range than the us n eu versions, it includes triluminous tech to produce wider range of colours.

Lot of statements in that review that point to the reviewer being misinformed or just plain too lazy to RTFM so dont put too much stock in it.

For instance, here is a link to a page on Sony China website showing the wireless version which is the only version listed.
http://www.sonystyle.com.cn/products/hmd/hmz_t3.htm?ssid=sstp01024

He COULD be right about the Triluminous tech but since he doesnt provide any visual or URL proof of this, the benefit of the doubt doesnt lie with him.

It is interesting because I talked with a Sony rep last week about changing the Japanese menu into English and he mentioned Triluminous tech for Japan models during our conversation. He said it was only for the Japanese market and not for the US or Europe. He hinted this is the reason the US and Europe got the HMZ-T3 models first and Japan had to wait months for it. It is also the reason he said the menu in Japan can ONLY BE in Japanese and no other language like previous models.
On my T3 I notice a huge difference in picture quality compared to my T2, the difference is night and day. I am highly impressed with the picture, 3D and sound.

However with that in mind, I still hate the comfort and using my cushion pads to help raise the T3 off my nose a bit and not make my forehead all red and painful.

Can you please elaborate for the non Japanese HMZ-T3 owners what you mean when you say "huge difference in picture" on the Japanese HMZ-T3 unit?

Thanks.

the PQ quality on T3 is better compare to T1 and T2 - no doubts. However I have strong doubts that there is huge difference between the EU/US and Asian models because of this mysterious triluminos tech. Also - not having English menu because of this on the Asian version - this is definately total BS from Sony rep. It's simple FW update so I am losing my last bit of faith in Sony (the first one was there price policy for T3). My friend ordered Jap version of T3 not knowing that there is no English in the menu. He should get it after new year and I will able to compare this mysterious triluminos tech with the normal EU version and share my personal view on this.

yes I know. I am talking only in connection with HMZ-T3. If I see the difference I will admit it but now I am sceptical that there is any difference at all apart from Jap only menu to prevent cheaper import from Japan....

Doesn't triluminos apply to LCD technology?
Why the confusion with OLED?

If I remember correctly, triluminos in Sony TVs applies only when playing 4K material.
