With 3D TV and cinema set to take off in the next few years, soon everyone will want to get in on the action with their very own pair of 3D glasses!

Light-years ahead of the flimsy old cardboard frames and thin red and green plastic lenses, these 3D glasses have comfortable, high quality plastic frames and proper optical lenses. The red and blue lenses are carefully tuned to get the best out of modern stereo imagery and the results are truly amazing! So, if you want to truly appreciate the latest in 3D technology then don't bother with the tacky cardboard viewers that cinemas supply and get your very own top quality 3D glasses that you can take with you again and again.
  • Please note: These glasses are only designed to work with images or films where the 3D effect is created by a red/blue split. Not all 3D images are created in this way, so if you wish to use these glasses for a specific film or image, please check that it is a red/blue 3D effect before purchase. These are not compatible with real 3D.

Please make sure to read the product description of both these glasses and your 3D image before buying.

These are RED/BLUE 3D glasses and will ONLY work on images of that type.
The previous bad reviewers have obviously not looked into this and haven't realised that there are 2 other types of Anaglyph 3D, RED/CYAN and RED/GREEN. These glasses will NOT work for the other two types.

Unfortunately a lot of new films use RED/CYAN and these glasses are incompatible. It's not the fault of the glasses, please stop giving them a low review because you made a mistake and bought the wrong ones.

I hope this helps any potential buyers. Don't be put off by low reviews. If you have a RED/BLUE 3D image then these work absolutely fine, or if you're just into them for the novelty then who cares anyway! :-}

Much better than the cardboard rubbish. last a lot longer, far more comfortable.

I watched my friend get a paper cut from the cardboard ones lol.. leading me to much safer.

And just generally cheap. 5/5 recommend!!

 Cyan lens is wrong colour

| | See all walkermoore's reviews (1)

I thought people were being stupid, not understanding how 3d red/cyan anaglyph glasses work and expecting them to work with red/green or interlaced 3d films, but that's not the case at all. The colour of the cyan lens is slightly out, resulting in ridiculously evident overlap whether viewing stereoscopic images, films or games using Nvidia's stereoscopic driver.

I bought these glasses to replace a free cardboard pair that have no arms, but they are far far worse. The free cardboard ones actually work 100% correctly. So, £5 down the drain.

 Simply Don't Work

The red lens works perfectly (not leting any green or blue light through). The cyan lens lets blue light through, green light through and red light through. So they Simply Don't Work.

Im not sure if they where designed like this or its just a quality control issue. Regardless I am very disappointed.

These are NOT the glasses for My Bloody Valentine, Valentine require Magenta/Green combination. These Glasses are red/blue (cyan).

The 3D movies at the cinema use a completely different technology which cannot work on normal TV screens, hence why the cinema style 'sunglasses' dont work with 3D movies at home and coloured 3D glasses dont work at the cinema.
