I received these in a timely manner. I had the play "Wicked" to attend and my seats were a little ways away, so i ordered these at almost the last minute. They came right away and I had them for the play! they worked perfectly! Thanks so much! I also bought season tickets that night for next season, so they will be used much!

This is an item out of my comfort zone. I may know a few things about electronic gadgets, since I enjoy reading about them and of course buying them as funds permit, but I haven't bought any binoculars for theater events before this. I have to say, these binoculars were everything we wanted and more! I think it's an excellent gift or even a personal purchase if you have tickets to an event and you want to ensure a great view from any seats.

They looked good too - of course, not that I have a lot of experience, but for my tastes (simple, elegant, and color preferences), this hit on all points. I'm not actually a fan of the gold color as much sometimes, but the gift recipient is so it worked out well. Great purchase and seems like a great deal here as well.

By the way, for those complaining about magnification, they clearly list 3x magnification which is exactly what is delivered. That is plenty for this purpose, and I think it's typical. Anyway it's as advertised, so there should be no complaints. Also included adjustments for focus according to the recipient (I didn't try it myself).

They're a little hard to focus and secure in position, but once you get the hang of it things are fine. It's really nice to be able to zoom in on the principles when you want too. And the price is pretty good.

These are great little binoculars and very attention grabbing. I used these when a broadway musical came through town. They worked great and I had lots of compliments and questions on where I got them.

Compact, discreet and attractive; easy to use and carry. In the dark of the Opera House, I felt comfortable removing it from the carrying bag and putting it away after use. I would recommend this.

very cool, have not used them yet but believe they'll work out fine. arrived nicely packaged but upon opening, there is was a pungent mothball smell - the glasses themselves aired out fine but the little carry bag it comes with reeks...I have lots of little bags I can put the glasses into so I'm just tossing the bag it came with.

Given the price the Opera Glasses perform as expected. My girlfriend had a bit of a hard time get the focus right, and ultimately watched the majority of the performance with out the glasses. However in one scene of "The Passenger" she used them quite effectively to determine which prisoner was singing. The staging obscured the performers faces making it difficult to determine. All in all they are worth the price.

It's ironic that I purchased these opera glasses based on the somewhat positive comments. My mistake. I went to the theatre last week and had pretty good seats in the mid-orchestra but couldn't see as much as I would have liked with these glasses. I am so glad that I also brought along an old pair of binoculars, which were heavy but did the trick in giving me the bird's eye perspective I wanted.. I know the magnification of 3X is standard so don't know if it's the fault of these particular opera glasses or any that only have 3X but I'm thinking you need more than 3X. Though the price was low, what's the sense if you can't use the product?

Poor quality. Barrels don't point at the same image. Seller promptly issued refund, including return postage. I bought another brand on Amazon.

The field of vision is not that big- I suppose it is what it says it is but just for reference- I was in the middle of the upper balcony and felt I was seeing the stage too close to be useful. If you want to look at details it is probably fine if they are not moving. But I found it hard to have two characters in view at any one time. I ended up using a friend's pair of binnoculars with a wider field of vision next time I went to the theater and it worked much better.

But all that said, these binoculars are very stylish, they seem solid enough, they do focus in, they arrived very quickly. The leather bag smells a bit- perhaps it is the dye they used? Don't know- the bag needed to air out a bit- initially it made everything around it smell like chemicals. After it aired out it was fine. I ended up giving mine away as a gift as I didn't see myself using them again.
