Oakley 3D Gascan Review

Today I am going to check out the Oakley 3D Gascan glasses. They look like sunglasses, but are actually 3D glasses for the theater. If you like 3D flicks but hate the way the disposable glasses at the theater feel, the Oakley 3D Gascan may be for you.

 

Specifications

The Oakley 3D Gascan glasses are passive 3D glasses that will work with different 3D technologies in the theater. The glasses are offered in black, white, and Transformers limited edition versions. The normal white or black versions sell for $120.

In Use

The Oakley 3D Gascan glasses look just like the sunglasses I have had in the past from Oakley. The difference in them is that these glasses don’t block any of the harmful UV rays outside. You can't use them as sunglasses; they are intended for theaters with 3D systems that use polarized 3D glasses.

I wore my review units this weekend to go to a movie with my kids called Puss in Boots. The Oakley 3D Gascan are much more comfortable than the cheap disposable glasses the theater gives. Those cheap RealD glasses always put a lot of pressure on the top of my ears and on the bridge of my nose. That gets real uncomfortable later in the movies.

The Oakley 3D Gascan were comfortable during the entire movie and I didn’t have to constantly mess with them and reposition them as I did the disposable glasses. The price tag of the Oakley 3D Gascan glasses are hard to swallow. I think if you have a TV at home that uses passive 3D glasses and enjoy seeing many 3D films this is a good deal. They offer the same image quality as the cheap disposables the theater gives you.

The Oakley 3D Gascan are very comfortable and look very good whereas most 3D glasses that come for TVs in the home or theaters are cheap and ugly. I really like the Oakley 3D Gascan and if you can swing the $120 price, you will like them too.

Verdict

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Work great

Cons

  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The Oakley 3D Gascan are undeniably expensive, but very comfortable and should work with any device that needs passive polarized 3D glasses.
