Can we please give it a go? I realize that some will claim that this is a debatably "opinion" issue but the fact is , to at least some level, its not opinion. there can be fact in it.?
Cityinruin, you seem to assuming there is only kind of 3D glasses technology. There are a number of quite different types of technology.
You might have had a better chance obtaining a concensus had your LED TV required passive glasses and relied on fixed circular polarisation. Circularly polarised passive glasses are relatively cheap to manufacture and come in different shapes and sizes.
However your LED TV uses active glasses technology. Active glasses are relatively expensive to manufacture and each design has its own choice of compromise. A timing compromise is required to minimise ghosting (interference between the Left and Right images) but not so much that it unduly reduces brightness. A choice needs to be made between rechargeable battery or non-rechargeable. There can be the issue of discolouration of the image by the variable opacity lenses. Different techniques are used for synchronising active glasses to the Left Right alternation of the picture. Active glasses intended for one model active TV may not work with another model active TV (especially true of older model active 3D TVs).
Arguably the best 3D glasses as regards 3D performance
are those for DLP projectors as they can give excellent brightness and very low ghosting.
You are really asking what are the best glasses for your model of TV set, with an emphasis on comfort, and freedom from extraneous light and reflections. You make no reference to brightness level, freedom from ghosting, or accuracy of colour. So your are asking for tailored advice, not the one size-fits-all advice you may have thought should be readily available.
Sometimes an owners' thread for a particular model active TV will include recommendations for after market active glasses that work well with the set and are comfortable. That line of enquiry could be worth pursuing.
