Sony Unveils New Headphones at SXSW

Sony revealed its new wearable headphones at this year’s SXSW. The headphones, called Concept N, are no doubt the first of their kind. They are worn around the neck have have no wires. The headphones are instead built with multi-directional speaker that project the user’s music upwards towards their ears (though they do come with earbuds, too).

While the headphones do look very futuristic and flashy, as can be seen on Consequence of Sound’s Facebook post, some people are less than impressed.

Oh yeah, the headphones also have a built-in camera and voice control. Users will be able to tell the headphones to open the camera or ask where the nearest coffee shop is. It seems Sony is wanting to follow in the footsteps of Google Glass, but we all know how that turned out.

Interested in getting you hands on a pair? While Sony hasn’t announced an exact launch date or price yet, they’re hoping to start selling Concept N later this year.
