I just saw this for the first time the other day on a re-run episode of Dragon's Den or Shark Tank (can't remember which).

I'm thinking of getting a pair and leaving it at work, since that's where you get the typical office fluorescent lighting, and I'm sitting in front of my computer all day long. But I think I am going to pony up the $70 or so for an untinted pair.

The guy that came up with this had a lot of prior experience at Oakley.

I had these before, a very very tiny zoom. The yellow takes a while to get used to. Despite their claims, my kd ratio did not improve in COD games.
yea no shit, these are just a gimmick, just like stupid GAMING chair for $300+ they may look cool to some, but they are dumb.. They come with crazy head rest, but whenever you watch anyone stream they are NEVER leaning back..

I notice on the Gunnar Optics website it mentions that these glasses are 'Asian Fit Compatible' and 'Youth Fit'. Are they smaller than standard size glasses?
under the Specifications tab it says: FIT: Medium – Large

It was Shark Tank.

The untinted lenses do not have nearly the same blue light protection: https://gunnar.com/amber-vs-crystalline/

That’s why it is called a head REST and not a headactive.

The youth fit ones probably have a smaller frame to fit children.

Asian fit refers to the part that touches your nose. Its designed for people who have a broader/wider nose. They use the same term for snowboarding goggles as well. Im assuming both markets have a large enough Asian segment for them to cater to it, Asians do love games and snowboarding.

Thanks for the share OP, I always wanted to give these a whirl but the original pricetag always had me on the fence. I'll definitely bite at this price! Appreciate it.

I wear eyeglasses and i found the brand ElementsActive to be the best blue blocker as it is dark amber and very reasonably priced , and it can be worn over glasses. unfortunately they seem to be only sold on amazon.com
