We’ve spent the last couple of weeks in the office looking at a wide variety of different gaming glasses. With both strength and protection in one package, you can’t go wrong with the GUNNAR Optiks PHA-00101 MLG Phantom Full Rim Advanced Gaming Glasses. For basically the same gaming headphone model, but with closed-back design, take a look at GAME ZERO It has much better noise isolation, but at a price of smaller soundstage, so for strict gaming purposes, GAME ONE model is better. About me, I work in front of a computer for over 9 hours a day in IT and ended up getting massive migraines because of it. It seems the glasses actually help change a wearer’s ability to see color differences. You can use these headphones for music and gaming without sacrificing anything, as long as you’re willing to pay the money for them. If you’re curious about gaming glasses, don’t hesitate to check out the NoScope Minotaur Gaming Glasses. The model of the glasses might say it is for reading” but don’t count Gamma Ray Flexlite just yet.
The even newer Logitech G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset stoked the flames of nostalgia in those of us who used Logitech headsets for years. I work on a computer all day and get headaches occasionally, but I have found that taking small breaks throughout the day, at least once per hour, eliminates any headaches I used to get. GUNNAR lens tints filter and balance the transmitted spectrum, reducing high-energy visible HEV light and warming the overall view. Whether or not this is a good or a bad thing is up to the individual, though I for one see it as a good thing as I sit at a computer desk for all my gaming.
Gaming eyewear will always be a see it to believe it” type of product, and while it might not work for those gamers who don’t tend to get eye strain and fatigue, those that do and want to save some cash, the classy Orion glasses or the MLG pro Hydra glasses are some of the best quality-built glasses I’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing under $50.
The Plantronics GameCom 380/388 and GameCom 780/788 (pretty much the same headset, except that the latter has USB connectivity and surround processing) impressed us with their light weight and good sound quality, but they didn’t feel very comfortable over long gaming sessions; they also prompted concerns about their build quality and durability.
First off you get the NoScope Demon, Orion and Hydra what are gaming glasses each with their own case and microfiber cloth for keeping them dirt free and clean. Since gaming headsets aren’t the cheapest and are getting frequently used, durability plays a part. Sounds like some standard anti-glare glasses with a design fit for headphones use and just the right field of view for gaming. The company has developed a line of fashionable glasses with lenses that increase magnification, reduce glare, and filter out blue light to keep your eyes comfortable, even when you have to spend an extended amount of time staring at your screen.
