They should uses more like a wide rubbery band like off a ski or cross googles that eould add more comfort and last longer.
Sum minor tweaks less tunnel vision and 1080p sony will have a killer system
one thing u forgot - the unit being front heavy becoz of electronic controls on HMD itself , aside from generic china hmds without control box , name one which has controls onboard HMD - all of them have controls on control box which only leaves the hmd light enough with swivel/ipd adjustments to be taken care of.
example galore - proview xl50 , emagin z800,headplay pcs, cinemizer plus/oled , vuzix - all f them have controls on control box that makes HMD very light with only swivel/IPD adjustments to take care of.
For T3 - sony will have to get back to the drawing board to redesign this afresh!

Thanks jommy999 for info - i kinda suspected that if anything happened to those CHEAP straps/forehead pad - it will be have to be sent back to Sony for repairs - you only confirmed my belief. - that's why i am reluctant to IMPORT this - T1/T2 .
I need this with full after sales support so in case anything happens i can send it back to Sony for repairs etc.
The only thing further to consider will be - time taken by them to repair it..........
coming back to design - SMD for instance has the design which sits on nose bridge which will be trouble whether it's light or heavy ! the same as vuzix/cinemizer etc - BAD design !
Sony is ok with 'hanging design NOT touching the nose bridge' but still requires tweaking as mentioned above.
my suggestion : design it like glasstron A55s / oriscape HMDs
with above design :
1)get all controls on control box
Voila a killer HMD to have their competitors closing shops - hehehe
i do not have enough personal space / room to dedicate to 3d stuff that i have else i'd have bought this - Asus LCD VG278HE
And waited for T3 with my suggestions as above incorporated - hehehe! guess my bad luck!
But again do we have a choice besides T2 for a personal 3D viewing system , others do not even come close to say the leastEdited by ancjob - 11/29/12 at 4:52pm
