Product Description

Color: Heat/Carbon

The Gunnar Optiks PHA-05601 MLG Phantom Full Rim Advanced Video Gaming Glasses is an excellent "out-of-the-box" solution to improve your visual performance and reduce eye fatigue for those with 20/20 vision. Eyestrain, visual stress and dry eyes can be caused by extended periods of digital screen viewing. GUNNAR’s digital eyewear filters out the harsh, high-energy part of the spectrum and creates a more relaxed viewing experience to help your eyes focus more naturally. The amber lens tint, anti-glare coatings, and ultra-pure lens material help provide sharper, clearer vision. Gunnar’s i-AMP lens technology is specifically engineered to reduce digital eyestrain, enhance viewing detail and protect the eyes of the serious gamer in order to stay focused and play longer. Made of high tensile steel with a heat/carbon frame finish, the MLG Phantom optics has a full rim frame and fastener free hinge design for incredible durability, unique style and comfort. The gently curved flexible temples (arms) are designed to provide necessary retention to keep eyewear in place, conform and ergonomically fit a wide range of head and face shapes and distribute headphone pressure to ensure headset compatibility. With the second largest lens coverage in the ESPORT series, wide format lenses create a panoramic viewing field for high-resolution viewing. The single-piece front construction eliminates all welds, screws and other potential points of failure. Interchangeable sockets create endless design options and the adjustable silicon nose pads allow you to customize your glasses for the optimal fit. When there's no time to blink, the Phantom doesn't disappoint. The Gunnar Optiks PHA-05601 MLG Phantom Full Rim Gaming Glasses comes with a 1-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. GUNNAR Advanced Gaming Eyewear creates a more comfortable and rich visual experience, improving visual efficiency, endurance, and recovery, while combating eye fatigue during extended hours of gaming.

Since wearing these, the dry eyes and eye strain are gone!
S. S.
After adjusting to the slight yellow tint, the glasses do in fact seem to enhance color contrast, leading to a better picture overall.

The sleek frames grasp the side of your temples not too firmly.

These GUNNAR MLG Phantom Onyx Frames are just what I needed. First off I have to admit, I don't get any better skill wise in the games I play! These may create a placebo effect, but it does magnify what is in front of you just slightly so you don't need to squint as much. The contrast of the amber tint helps reduce the white glare from the monitors. It took me about a full day of use to get used to the magnification and the amber tint. Now I don't even notice the amber tint much at all or the magnification. Hell I even drive my car with these on even though it is meant for near to medium range use. FYI, I waited to review these after I went to the 48 hour NVIDIA GeForce LAN 6 that was held on the USS Hornet to showcase Battlefield 3. I wore these and had my picture posted on the NVIDIA GeForce blogs!

Now the PROS and CONS:
PROS:
-Reduces eye strain from glare
-No more red eye from hours of gaming for me
-Looks sturdy and well made, Swiss optics and fame made in China(of course)
-Works perfectly fine with my contacts on
-Light in weight... not heavier than my usual glasses
-Snug to the head so Gaming headsets are usable without trouble(I use Plantronics Gamecom 777 AND Astro A40s)

CONS:
-Tight to the head so it can leave a minor mark on my eyes of my temple
-Fingerprint magnet and harder to clean than normal glasses
-Doesn't fit in my Oakley glasses case holder
-The pouch it comes with is really cheap in quality
-Pricey for what it really is
-Makes your eyes look larger(for me this is a pro cause my eyes are normally small)

Conclusion:
I have worn these everyday since I purchased these about a month and a half ago. I wear them for work and I wear them when I am at home playing games...

I got this pair of glasses yesterday, and was somewhat skeptical. Here are a few points to consider before I review the product:

1. I am glued to a computer screen from morning 11 to evening 8.

2. I leave for my home and reach home at 9.

3. I have my food by 9 30, and switch on my PS3 for a game of battlefield 3.

4. On weekends, I get up at 8, and am gaming non stop till 9 in the night.

Almost every waking moment of my day, Im glued to one screen or another. This used to give me eye strain / fatigue. I used to get pain behind my eyes when I tried to go to sleep at 11. Since this was a daily routine, I didn't think about doing much. Until a week ago, that is. Then I decided to get these.

First impressions: build quality, awesome. The ember tint, somehow keeps my eyes.... cool... Don't know how else to describe it. I kept my laptop monitor at max brightness the entire day yesterday, and in the evening, didnt have any eye fatigue! I went to sleep without the red eyes or the pain.

Ive just had it for one day, and can already notice the difference. I never used to wear glasses, but these just blew my mind.

Im from India, but As usual, Amazon's quality of service was top notch. Packaging was good, and the product was received in very good condition.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone out there with a similar lifestyle to mine!

Color Name: Gloss Onyx Verified Purchase
First let me say that wear'n Gunnar's have saved my career. before my first pair of Gunnar's, I used to get the worst headaches around noon everyday. Now 7-10 hours code'n a day, NO more headaches.

These are the 5th pair of Gunnar's I've owned, and probably my least favorite. The lenses are nice sized, but the arms are kind of odd, & the plastic "sleeves" that slide on and off are A) Ugly B) uncomfortable C) after A & B who cares.

Cheers,

Rico

Since I've gotten these glasses I can't believe that after countless hours using these you can feel the difference on your eyes as they aren't exposed to brightness of your LCD TV's. For those hardcore gamers who spend countless hours on TV'S, computers etc need to get one of these... THEY'RE GREAT

Color Name: Snow/Onyx Verified Purchase
I really enjoy these glasses. There is a slight magnification that is noticeable and does help. The yellow tint after a couple minutes is not noticeable as you eyes get used to the shade. I do believe these glasses really do help prevent on eye strain and the other claims. I went one day with it and my eyes were fine after hours on the computer, and one day without them and within an hour my eyes were already sore. I mainly use these for work on my computer but I do play gaming from time to time and it is the same results.

The only thing I do have against these glasses is that they are fingerprint magnets and no real cleaning cloth was provided. I understand the cloth case can be used but I'd rather keep that clean since it is my storing place. Regarding cloth case, for how much I paid for these glasses, I would have appreciated a better solid case rather than just a cloth one. I just don't feel comfortable they will be protected in that cloth case.

There is a slight reflection issue that I am noticing in the lens. I am trying to determine if it is my own eyes I am seeing or something in front of me. It isn't always noticeable but I do see it in lower-lighting area.

Overall, I do enjoy these glasses however I wish their price would be a little lower.
