They have a slightly "warmer" sound which translates to having a ton of bass. That's to be expected since the WF-SP800N are part of Sony's Extra Bass line of headphones. The bass is even still able to retain resolution and detail. The midrange and high notes remain balanced and smooth. If you don't like the sound you can always adjust it in the smartphone companion app. … [Read more...] about Sony WF-SP800N vs. Google Pixel Buds (2020): Which should you buy?

The patent application, published by the US Patent and Trademark Office just yesterday, was originally filed on October 17, 2014. That's only a few months after Sony unveiled the VR headset then known as Project Morpheus to the public, so the timing suggests this patent wasn't just a random flight of fancy.

It should go without saying that a patent application isn't the same thing as an actual product in development, and there's no indication whether or not Sony is actually working to bring these kinds of VR gloves to market.
