JVC-Victor has announced the wireless headphone system HP-ALW600. This has got to be one of the lightest infrared headsets made, weighing only 2.8 oz. The company is playing up some newfangled ear hook that makes these cans more comfortable for long listening stretches. The second set of phones are the HP-W120. These are slightly heavier (3.7 oz.) and tweaked for heavy bass and stereophonic sound. Both systems charge on the stand and have a transmit/receive distance of about 22 feet. These will be available starting February 1, but only in Japan.
