Sony has recently announced that they have made available the headphones you are going to crave for: MDR-DS6500. They incorporate speakers associated with a Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound technology, using the Virtualphones technology (VPT), thus generating sounds that seem to come from every direction (surround sound).
A 3 hour charging period is necessary for the headphones to function for 20 hours. We’d better believe them since Sony rarely announces wrong specifications. As for the sound quality, no compromise was made and you can benefit from a very clear sound from a distance of up to 100 meters (330 feet). So, you can walk around the house and have the same highquality sound.
Such high quality sound can only come from a digital source. These headphone’s dock, a part from a 3.5 stereo, has a digital optic input, perfect for picking up sound from any station, blu-ray player or even a recent version PC’s soundboard. Irrespective of the source type, be it 2.0ch or 5.1, Sony MDR-DS6500 wireless headphones will always provide you with a surround sound due to a smart amplifying and multiplexing system.
In order to avoid interference, inherent to any wireless system, both the basis and the headphones dinamically change the emitting/receiving channel, without imparing sound quality. No aspect of a high-tech product can be neglected, therefore the design for these headphones is the same uniform design used for the whole range of Bravia TV sets for more than a year.
Sony is planning to officially launch these wireless headphones in May 2011.
