Have you ever been gaming too long and you start to get sleepy? Gamers have been trying to prevent sleepiness in many different ways. Between caffeine drinks, countless amounts of coffee, and various types of products. One product in particular that has been brought into the market to fend off sleepiness and enhance performance is gamer glasses. Gamer glasses come in different shapes, sizes and have distinct features. One major part of them is removing a particular color from your eyesight. These are called blue blockers. Blue blockers are made to remove all the forms of the color blue from your eyesight. This causes your eyes to be less tired. I personally have gone through multiple different versions of gamer glasses and they all work to an extent. None have worked nearly as well as these. Sub2r has created glasses that will revolutionize how you game.
Sub2R Redefining Blue Blockers
The company behind the glasses, Sub2R, sent me a pair to test and to see how I would like them. Note how I said PAIR! Through extensive research and development, they have made a Pair of gamer glasses like no other. Now these gamer glasses are not blue blockers. Yes, you read that right, Let me say that again. These glasses are not BLUE blockers. Sub2r has learned how to make gamer glasses better and more efficient. Now, you are probably asking yourself how I know this as a father with a one-year-old who doesn’t sleep and streams full-time while progressing in a World of Warcraft raiding guild. You learn what works to keep you awake and what doesn’t. Now to go a little move into this Magical pair.
Magenta Makes Perfect
The Magenta “Practice” glasses are made to keep your sleep patterns and circadian rhythms at an average level. Now you might ask yourself why you would want this, this helps you to fall asleep. I normally wear these glasses for 2 hours when I start to stream and go into the amber glasses then 2 hours prior to stopping I put these glasses back on so that my body gets used to going back to sleep.
Switching From Magenta to Amber
As for the Amber glasses, they keep my eyes focused to a point where they are not tired and I feel like I can play forever. What these glasses do is remove the one color blue that makes your eyes tired. This is better than the standard blue blockers because you can actually see blue as you are playing. Normal blue blockers will remove all layers of blue. With these, I can see outlines of attacks and abilities that I might have missed with standard gamer glasses.
Here is a nice little chart if you are wondering about the differences between the two glasses.
Pristine Comfort and Build Quality on the Sub2r Glasses
I have a big head and these glasses fit me very well and my total peripheral vision on the computer. The one thing I was the most worried about was how well they were built. Additionally, another concern I had was how they felt with my headset on. Luckily, my fears were abated. These glasses are made better than my regular everyday glasses around the house. They are lighter and stronger than most glasses. When I have my headset on I don’t even realize I am wearing them.
Another standout feature is the springs on the sides of the frames. This allows me to not worry about putting them on or off one-handed. I have tried multiple types of gamer glasses and I will tell you these have given me the best performance in a long time. Though it’s worth mentioning that the only downfall at this time is that they are not prescription glasses. Luckily, Sub2r reassured me that they are planning for that in the future. The case is super protective of the glasses and feels premium.
The last thing I can say about these gamer glasses from Sub2r is that they are amazing and they work. Even with the price tag of $499.99 which might push you away just a reminder you get 2 glasses, not one with a case. Be sure to use my code “LordPeteyTV” to save 10%. These are not your average gamer glasses and you will notice the difference immediately.
