Sony introduces a new headset dubbed PFR-V1 that simulates sound coming from in front of you. For some reason Sony calls this "Speaker in your Head" - at least that is what the Japanese to English translation makes of it.

The Sony PFR-V1 does make you look a bit like dork when your wearing them. Two sphere shaped speakers float next to your ears. The spheres project sound at an angle on your ear giving you the impression of hearing sound from the front. A so called Mobius duct pipes bass directly into your ear channel.
This weird looking headset construction is supposed to deliver exceptional sound quality. At almost $500 it better.

The Sony PFR-V1 start selling on October 20th for 55,650 Yen (~$478).
