Well it is CES, so it must be time for a company to hype up a headset as the future of home entertainment. This year is Headplay’s turn. The company has unveiled its Personal Cinema System which will apparently hit the US stores in April and retail for around $499.
There are three parts to the system. A headset, which according to the company delivers a 3D viewing experience and is the equivalent of a 52inch plasma screen, and an adaptor and remote control.
The smart part is that the adaptor, which Headplay calls the Liberator. It has composite and component video inputs as well as USB slots and CompactFlash compatibility. By the time the product launches it will also be ready for SD, XD and Memory Stick cards.
Obviously you can connect it to MP3 players, personal video players, games consoles etc
I have so far never seen a headset that delivers decent image quality, so it will be interesting to check out the Headplay.
