Sony's HMZ-T3 is its third iteration of the wearable device, with some very nice improvements to be had. The company has improved the clarity of the dual OLED displays through both lens and software adjustments, but the same 1280x720 resolution stays the same unfortunately. There's a bigger viewing sweet spot and multiple new specialized screen options for both gaming and movie watching.

One of the better features introduced with the HMZ-T3 is the ability to plug in an Android device through micro-HDMI/MHL. The HMZ-T3 has ports for both full-sized and micro-HDMI cables, which is an great new feature going into the future.

 

The HMZ-T3 sports virtualized 7.1-channel surround sound, and is now 10g lighter after getting onto the VR treadmill. There's improved padding and better adjustment controls, all whilst being lighter, which is something you can't complain about now, is it? There are both wired and wireless options that will go on sale in Japan next month, with a global roll out not yet discussed by Sony.
