HD (High Definition) Sunglasses Review

By Edited May 7, 2016 1 2

HD Sunglasses
HD (High Definition) sunglasses have been growing in popularity quite a bit over the last few years. With HD sunglass commercials popping up more and more, it's clear (maybe not "high definition" clear) that these HD sunglasses have something special about them. But what are these HD sunglasses and how do they work? Or do they even work at all? Let's discuss this hot new product in this HD sunglasses review article and find out.

What Are HD Sunglasses?

The HD sunglasses are a new type of sunglasses that claim to give the person wearing them "high definition clarity". The sunglasses are supposed to enhance brightness of light and color, as well as reduce the glare to almost nothing at all. You can buy HD Sunglasses for a low price usually between $10-$20 and come in attractive styles and frames. Even though they are designed to make things more vivid and bright, they also feature UV protection from the sun.

How Do HD Sunglasses Work?

HD sunglasses are not exactly "high definition" in the sense that there is some kind of computerized technology embedded in the lenses, but rather the lenses themselves are a variation of amber-tinted lenses that are designed to filter out blue spectrums of light, thus enhancing the vividness of colors. Though they do give the impression of high definition clarity, they don't actually possess your traditional HD technology used in TVs and such. At least you won't have to worry about your lenses short circuiting in the rain.

Do The HD Sunglasses Actually Work?

The answer to this question simply depends on how you define "work". If you ask 80% of the people who try them on, they will tell you that they do in fact make everything brighter and more colorful with less glare, most agree that using the term "high definition" is somewhat misleading and unwarranted. It is likely that the manufacturers of the HD sunglasses chose to use "HD" as part of a gimmick to attract more customers.

Scientifically speaking, the HD sunglasses are not technically "high definition". However, that is not to say that the HD sunglasses aren't unique or make things look more vivid than usual. Most customers are satisfied with the results and low price, although perhaps a bit confused about the slightly misleading "HD" prefix used to sell them. For a $10-$20 pair of good-looking sunglasses that reduce glare and make colors a litle more vivid, they are a pretty good deal in that you don't have much to lose. Many sunglasses sell for hundreds of dollars and don't offer near as many unique features as the HD sunglasses.

In Closing

The HD sunglasses are cheap, stylish, ad produce many unique and predominantly satisfying results. The "high-definition" gimmick may be a little over exaggerated, but hey - that's marketing for you. At $20 a pop they present a good deal for curious buyers to make the final plunge into purchasing them. Since the majority of people are satisfied with the results, you could always save your HD sunglasses and use them as a gift for a friend or family member if you don't like them.

Listen people, some of you think that filtering light wont enhance your vision, you think it will do the opposite right? the fact is no mater what the stimuli filtering out somehting enhances the other part of the stimuli's spectrum, just like with sound, if a producer is mastering a track and find that even though the bass frquencies are hitting top levels and yet the track still has a weak bass whne you listen to it, if you cut out some of the lower bass frequencies you'll find that the weaker bass frequencies can become clearer and giving ghte track an all-round bassier sound, the same can can be said for light, if you cut out the blue light (the most poerful and dominant of light in our enviroment) you are allowing the weaker frequencies of light to reach your eye, resulting in a more detailed view on your enviroment, since there is no longer an overpowering ammount of blue light.
