We thought Sony showed a bit of wisdom and discretion by leaving the PFR-V1s overseas, but we were wrong. The $500 "personal field speakers" are definitely headed Stateside, and it's just as we feared: they may sound decent enough to justify the price, but honestly, no one is going to wear these. Really, no one. Probably not even around the house, even despite the fact that they're not really that uncomfortable. See our pained facial expression after the break.
Features built-in awkward humiliation. And yes, we're well aware they're backwards -- does it really matter?
