I wear them over my glasses. It's not ideal, but they do fit. These are my first pair of 3D glasses so I don't have anything to compare them to in terms of fit with perscription glasses. It does help that the 750's are very light in weight.

Does anyone else get distracted by the constant blinking of the LED when wearing these in a dark room? I find that I can see it through the glasses when it blinks and I have the lights off. I wish I could just turn that LED off or keep it on.

How the hell can you see the LED light blinking? eek.gif Do you have a third eye? tongue.gif Just kidding dude but seriously, how can you see it? I can't imagine how and I don't see it myself? Isn't the LED light on top of the glass frame?

Ha. I don't know, it may be a defect I guess... It's the weirdest thing, but I turn off the lights at night and while I'm watching the movie, and I can see the LED blinking at it's 0.5 Hz at the top of my peripheral vision. Putting my finger on top of the light doesn't seem to help, so I'm guessing somehow light is bleeding thru the middle glass section. I dunno, I'll have to take a really close look and try and see what's going on. But it is really distracting.

I just got two pairs from Amazon.com today. I wear glasses and they fit same as the BR250s. It depends on your eyeglass frame. My last pair of glasses had temples attached to the middle of the lens and the BR250s fit better with those eyeglasses. Now that I have more trendy eyeglasses with the temples at the top of the lenses both the 250s and the 750s don't sit on the bridge of my nose but rest on the top of my frames. Since the 750s are so light, they feel fine. The 250s caused some discomfort putting more weight on the hard molded nose pieces of my eyeglasses. Although the new 750s also sit on the top of my prescription glasses, they're comfortable and don't hurt. So answering your question, they are comfortable with my glasses. I love them with one complaint-the power button is in an inconvenient place, inside above the nose bridge so you can't turn them off while wearing them which was my preferred method to make sure they were off but small price to pay-they are GREAT!smile.gif

No, I don't see the LED blinking while wearing them.

Hi, see my comment above about eyeglasses since I also own BR250's in addition to my two pairs of the new BR750s.

Speaking of perscription glasses: Has anyone seen those polarization filters in the meantime? I was wondering if these things could be "abused" to use them for perscription lenses. You know, maybe these filters come in some sort of frame where an optician could remove the filters from and install perscription lenses instead.

Does anyone know whether or not that would be possible?

Has anyone ever tried the 'Duogreen 3D Active Shutter Glasses' (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VOH6P0)? They're battery operated and cost $34 on Amazon right now. Obviously they don't look as nice as the BR750, but they're under half of the price. And they look better than the BR250 (which is still more expensive). There's no reviews on Amazon, so I don't know if I should be scared, or if it's new or what? Any thoughts?

I bought some xpand x104 3d glasses to compare to the 750's that I own. Results were drastictly in favor of the 104's. The 104's have vertical and horizontal filters, so you have zero head tilt loss of 3d and color. They also display a much better 3d Image straight on. They are tinted slightly darker and the color presentation looks much more accurate to me. The 750's are light and comfortable, but the 104's fit over my prescription glasses without a problem and are way more comfortable than the 250's. The 104's can also be updated with the latest firmware and you can adjust the shutter speed through they're pc app. I've already sold 2 pairs of my 750's on eBay. Keeping 1 pair for now. I have a Sony XBR55hx929 and these are the best glasses I have used bar none.

I just returned a pair of these to Amazon. As a titanium freak (the ti in my AV is for titanium!), I knew I had to get them but I found them to be cloudy and much less sharp than the 250's I compared them to. As an eyeglass wearer, they also picked up extraneous light between the lenses which disappeared when I cupped my hands over them. To top it off, I couldn't use either eyepiece with my glasses since the bridge of my glasses interfered with both eyepieces. I guess I'll try the xpands next since the 250's are like wearing a brick on your head. wink.gif

TV is a 46HX929.

I can't decide whether to get their Duogreen glasses or their Duogreen sporks. http://www.amazon.com/Duogreen-Magnetic-Camping-Activity-Carrying/dp/B005ZSNKMM

Yes I can. I'll get the sporks. I'll get my glasses from companies known for making glasses.

It works extremely well. Much better than the 250. What I want to know is whether this unit is "universal" like the Sony PS3 3D glasses (which unfortunately totally uncomfortable to wear)

Hi everyone,

Do you guy recommend me getting the 750's for my "52hx903" ? I brought this thing a while back which came with the BR-100 glasses which I do find give horrific ghosting most of the time besides "Owl's and Guardians", the best 3D experience I've found so far.

I am keen to try the Xpand 104's after the previous users post but cant find my model on their compatibility list, and also the respect the point that its the TV tech that reduces the ghost/crosstalk rather then changing the version/model or even brand of active shutter glasses but i see mixed views here. Im just wondering if my 3DTV model is considered old tech.

It's a case of YMMV. Some people love them, I returned mine. It depends on what works with your face. Get them from a place with a good return policy in case they don't work for you.

Thanks for the advice ti-triodes, I've totally forgotten about the UK trading policies after living in Hong Kong for so long wink.gif Though I've not heard back from the Expand people I think I'll give both the 104s and possible the 750's a shot.

I heard there there isn't much difference in image quality and crosstalk handling between the BR 250's and the BR 750's, Is this correct? Price point wise I can see myself affording 4 pairs of the 250's rather then the others, I just keen to get away from the 4 BR-100s I already own due to amount of eye stain I can get from them and hope the new glasses are a huge improvement in terms or reducing this.

Hi,

yes I have the same problem!

The effect is visible when watching in completely darken room, You can see the upper blinking LED through the glass of glasses - so no 3rd eye needed :-D. (same effect as You would lit the light at the edge of glass plate). I'm affraid this is a design flaw. Checked 3 pairs of them and all have this effect. Apart that glasses are very comfortable, light, fits well over prescription glasses. They work with HX900 series as well. Honestly no noticeable visibility difference between old glasses and new (I was hoping that color change when tilting the head will be fixed), of course apart weight and wear comfort. As You will take closer look and compare I suppose they use exactly the same glasses but just different frame!

For me this led blinking makes them unusable to watch movies in darken room - as I usually watch them :-(, as my wife tell she is able to notice the effect but as she gets used to it - it is no longer visible for her after few minutes...

A pity!

It could be the good idea just to be able to turn those damn leds off, I can also see leds blinking on older glasses but on the surrounding, not just directly in glasses which is acceptable. In old glasses I can just cover the led. Here it is impossible as the "blink" is visible even with led covered from the above. ;-(

The image quality was worse with my 750. It wasn't as sharp as the 250. Crosstalk was about the same. LIke I said, you have to try them for yourself to see if they work for you.

Would a little piece of tape over the LED help?

Thanks for further info Ti, i've not yet gotten around to buying any yet but I think i'll settle for the BR-250's since many do say that its better or same as the 750's. For now im currently making a list of 3d titles to purchase to test them out as the old BR-100's pretty much put me off 3d all together.

all in good time,

Geoff

So these glasses should work with my nearly-two-year-old 60" XBR-LX900? Just want to make sure before I spend the cash to give them a try.

UPDATE 1: Okay, I went ahead and ordered these from Amazon. I am hoping they will work with the LX900, but I am somewhat concerned. I don't know why Sony doesn't indicate on their site which TVs are compatible with these glasses. They do list compatible TVs for the 250 series of glasses, but the LX900 was not among them. That is why I am worried that these might not work, too. I'll update again once I get the glasses and try them out in case anyone else out there has an LX900 and is considering these glasses.

Okay, before posting this, I checked the 100 series glasses compatibility, and my TV isn't listed there, even though I am pretty sure the 100's are what came with my TV (and the Sony store gave me two additionals with my TV purchase). We'll see.cool.gif

UPDATE 2: I am happy to report that these glasses work perfectly fine with the LX900 TVs. Happy because I really like these glasses. All of the batteries I've purchased for my 100s after the originals died have not lasted particularly long, so it will be nice to only have to plug these in for a few minutes before watching a movie if they have no charge as opposed to having to go to the store to buy batteries or wait a few days for them to come in if I order them online.

Having said that, I only need two of the 100 model glasses that I have, so if anyone wants my other two pairs of 100s, let me know. I'm not looking to sell them. I got them for free with my TV anyway and would rather see them get used than gather dust and be thrown away in a few years when I get a new TV. PM me if interested.

This is a month later, but just curious if you also considered the ps3 3d glasses? I'm debating between the 250's and the ps3's right now, based on review thats the 250's are more comfortable, but the ps3'as have a filter allowing a greater range of motion without distorting the image.
