Sony is preparing to launch a new personal head-mounted display, the Sony HMZ-T3W. This wireless visor is up for pre-order at Sony Stores and select nationwide retailers right now for $999.

The headset, compatible with PC, consoles, tablets and smartphones through HDMI, is part of Sony's third generation of head-mounted displays and features twin OLED screens. This latest set-up has a lighter frame, flexible headbands and a built-in battery pack (good for three hours) for increased portability. It also supports up to 7.1 surround sound.

Our pals at Engadget went heads-on with the device last month and enjoyed some of the improvements Sony made to this third go at fancy headgear. Sony hasn't said when it'll start shipping the HMZ-T3W, but if you want to get an idea for how you'll look in this voluptuous visor head to Sony's site.
