I don't know why I'm even looking at this drop. I have too many gunnar glasses. I like the intercept frame, and over some time I've gotten 5 different pairs of those frames in different colors with different lenses; onyx work-play, onyx crystalline, onyx circ, and two outdoor lens, one with a raven frame, and one with dark ale 24k. Those last two were part of buy-one-get-one promos, at least partially absolving myself of the guilt of owning 3 pairs of sunglasses. The work-play are the most versatile, as they should be equivalent to amber lenses indoors, and gray sunglasses outdoors in terms of blue light transmission, though I don't believe they block as much of the rest of visible light as the gray lenses. Of the pairs of gray lens sunglasses I have, I do like the feel of the dark ale frame material, and the 24k series hinge hardware move with less resistance. The other pair of outdoor glasses I have are the pair I take with me hiking, as if I had to pick a pair of glasses to fall off of my face down a ravine, that one would leave me least bummed out. I don't know how I feel about the Circ lenses (sort of blue sunglasses). The promo information I can find suggests it has the same 90% blue light protection, while claiming to "harness the benefits of good blue" in terms of preserving your circadian rhythm, but I don't really know if I have the problem that claims to correct. The crystalline lenses I got because one of my workspaces is just poorly lit, and even wearing the amber lenses feels like I'm wearing sunglasses at night. I am a little curious about the liquet lens, but that doesn't appear to be an option on this drop so I'm probably safe. But if next time I see a tortoise 24k intercept frame with liquet lenses next drop, I'll probably be filled with further disappointment in my ratio of pairs of gunnars to pairs of eyes. Luckily I don't think they actually make that combination.
It would have been useful to some of us with less than perfect eyesight if the Gunnar Optiks computer reading glasses also had been included in this drop.
lol rip
Why is it that sheadog increased 20 dollars
I have a pretty big head, which glasses would be a good fit for me?
If Razer FPS was part of the drop, I'd be in.

Well then, try to be a little more specific next time, so that the buyers can get you what you want. Because you basically requested a product that they have already. Hopefully this is seen and they can get you what you want. I however would really like Razer FPS
I got them from this drop, the box came in destoryed, a screw that held one silicone thingy is missing. Not sure if massdrop or customs ruined them. Now waiting for a glasses fix kit to arrive from ebay
So is this gonna be back ordered again like the drop from before? Is this gonna waste my time again?

The Haus - Onyx - Crystalline glasses are available.
Hi Jaysun. I'm just curious, from what I see, computer glasses tends to have amber tint on the lenses, does Haus - Onyx - Crystalline glasses (clear lenses as I can see) would still protect your eyes from the blue light? Thanks
Again are these Authentic Gunnar? Guess I will have to ask Gunnar. Or cancel my order.
Save yourself $15. These guys took a week and a half to ship but the glasses are fanatastic
There is a difference between blue light filtering glasses and computer glasses. Blue light filtering glasses just filter out blue light. Computer glasses have lenses with an optical center that encourage your eyes to focus on things that are close, like computer screens. This guy explains it much better.
Thanks for this.
What model is this and are these Authentic Gunnar's?
No MLG Micron option for this drop?
These are what I came for as well. They advertise the Microns in the main display picture for $30 and then don't have them? Disappointing to say the least.
Do any of these offer some magnification i.e. reading glasses?
I love my glasses, however out of ignorance I thought the bag that came with them was microfiber and used the inside of it to clean my lenses, and now most of the coating has been rubbed away. For some reason they seem to get dirty very easy. It would be nice if they came with a cloth for cleaning. Don't be me and BE CAREFUL HOW YOU CLEAN THEM. Now I just need another drop to replace them.
RPG with polarized lenses... AFAIK Gunnar has never offered polarized lenses and their Web site still has a screed about why no polarization.
Can you confirm that these are Gunnar lenses?
Polarized lenses are most definitely only in the versions they show sunglasses not the yellow lenses.
Hello, I have purchased a Gunnar Intercept in the past, and I really liked it. I wanted to see if I can get the same frame but with amber lenses. I want the Intercept - DarkAle with Amber (Yellow) lenses. Please let me know if that's a possibility. Thanks


Would these be good for playing sports at night under lights or driving? If so, which model?
Does using this in addition to flux do anything? Would I see any benefits from using them?
So when are y'all gonna just offer RX options in the drop, im too lazy to buy, wait for them to arrive and then ship them back and wait again, just so I can see through them
I thought I remember this drop saying something like “in stock and ready to ship.” But now they will ship by June 22? Am I crazy?

If it makes you feel better, mine says July 19th.
Yeah that’s not cool.
Why wouldn't you just download f.lux? It does the same thing that gunnars do. I would recommend you trying it out Before purchasing gunnars. You may not like the color changes

As I briefly mentioned, there are alternatives. Search Amazon for 'gamma ray glasses'. Can't speak for the build-quality on those but the pair of Gunnars I've owned and used almost daily for 5 years have held up just fine.
Also, the lenses decrease the amount of convection around your eyes so they don't dry out as quickly
Note that these have a slight magnification that completely ruined them for me.
I purchased a pair and loved them so much that I bought a second pair for work. Completely eliminated eye strain/headaches overnight. Plus with the flat arms I could wear headphones pain free. Not sure if it had any effect on me getting to sleep easier (though this was a second reason I purchased (to reduce blue light from screens)).
The thing is, I only used them for about 7 months. First, you can't use them with the TV because they're like reading glasses - Anything close is easier to read, but anything beyond a yard or so is blurry. In fact they annoyed me anytime someone walked into my office to chat: I had to remove them or look at their blurry face for 5 minutes. Second, they started changing my vision. After a few months of using them, things at a distance started to become more clear, but things at a distance without the glasses became blurry and weirdly shimmery. I've stopped using them for 4 months now and things at distance are still a bit blurry, though I've been looking at a computer screens a lot more lately - unsure if the glasses or more close-focus computer time is the culprit. Anyway I called and asked about a pair without the magnification and I was told I'd have to get prescription lenses...
I won't guarantee that they're any good, but a review I saw for Spektrum Glasses specifically pointed out the magnification thing as a problem that brand doesn't have. You might want to check them out.
Can the glasses' elevation be raised? I have the RPG-05401 and even after adjusting the nose pad I still see the top frame.
Anyone started to receive these yet? DHL tracking reports my pair has arrived in country, but nothing for a week after that.
Okay, just arrived yesterday!
Are any of these models good for going over prescription eyeglasses?
They do make prescription lenses. But perhaps you've already looked into that? Here's the link just in case.
So the glasses were delivered yesterday and I've compared them to my glasses from the optician. The one from the optician is +0,5 with blue filter and optional range is roughly one arm length or 1 meter and cost me €149. The Gunnar phantom MLG is +0,2 with blue filter and amber tint with an unknown optional range and cost me €38,14.
Usage: Wearing the optician glasses I can see the screen isn't as bright and blue colors are slightly less blue. Reviews that the amber tint of the Gunnars help with contrast ingame are true although I mostly play RPG, action and fighting games so keep that in mind while reading this. Purpose and price wise I'd say for taking glasses Gunnars do their job well especially since these allow for comfortable over ear headphones wear as well. No more headaches after a day of starting at screens with either one.
Smudging: As long as you avoid touching the glasses you should be fine either way. So far I've found my optician glasses smudged pretty easily when accidentally directly touching them and I think this might hold true for the Gunnars as well. I suspect this has to do with the anti-reflective coating on my optician glasses.
Pricewise: The optician reading glasses with blue filter are slightly costlier, but when you already use prescription glasses you might need to reconsider and calculate which is the cheaper and more cost effective option according to your wishes. In my case the Gunnars are cheaper since I didn't get them with prescription lenses, however getting prescription glasses from and optician can also be pretty costly depending on the glass and frame options to name a few. The biggest selling point of getting glasses at an optician would be knowing, seeing and fitting everything before you commit yourself to the sale.
In short for people without prescription glasses the Gunnars are cheaper and work well enough while wearing over ear headphones, for people needing prescription glasses make a checklist of options then make a price comparison to decide if the Gunnars are best for you or not.

You know you can just get blue light filters on phones and computers as applications for free right....

Didn't work well enough for me, but if it does for you it's cheaper and less intrusive than wearing glasses. ;-)
But they can drop frame rates and what about if your are using a PS4 example...
Hi Massdrop, any specification details for Emissary n Phenom?
Can I put any of these models on top of my current glasses? Thanks!
I got the Intercept during the last drop. When I put it on I noticed a bit or "power" or a slight binocular effect. is this normal with these glasses? I have 20/20 vision hence I wish to keep it that way. Haven't worn it since. Appreciate some feedback from users here :)

Thank you my friend. To be honest I have not been using these Gunnar Optics since I posted :( Also because I went back to changing my screen colours to a warmer tint.
I will give this another try and check the Spektrum glasses you mentioned. Thanks mate :)
