Sony PFR-V1 Headphones

Wacky and Wonderful Sony Headphones: Love or Leave?

Hopefully these headphones, called the PFR-V1 personal field speakers, live up to their impressive description. Sony's aim was to re-create the experience of surround sound and full-size speakers never before heard from headphones. The typical impediment with headphones is that there is no access to the outer ear, which provides you with that amazing sound stage resonance.

So here's Sony's innovative, yet not exactly attractive, solution which instantly grabbed my attention when I saw them on Crave: Headphone components that are placed half an inch away from your ear as well as inside your ear so that you're able to get low, mid, and high frequency sounds. The fancy headphones, available in America in April, will cost you $500 and possibly a few friends.

Are these blowing your mind in a good or a bad way? My vanity has me torn.
