NoScope’s $19.99 Gaming Glasses | Review
Admittedly, I can’t say I’ve ever suffered from gaming or computer related migraines that plague some people, at least not any that I can recall. Gaming glasses were invented to solve heavy gamers’ confrontation with migraines but also to help them focus on what matters while in the midst of gaming. Considering the large amount of information being processed from your eyes to your brain, many people do encounter eye strain related inconveniences while gaming on HDTV displays and computer monitors. An intense game of Battlefield 4 may have you reaching for your ibuprofen. Normally it’s recommended that gamers take at least a 15 minute break every hour behind the joystick, but for those of us that refuse, we have NoScope.
NoScope’s “Demon Series” sturdy gaming glasses is made from a flexible plastic with a one-size-fits-most frame. Most importantly, the glasses’ lenses are yellow-tinted to filter out blue “light noise” that can be distracting from bright gaming/television displays. I’ve played a handful of rounds on Xbox One’s Titanfall wearing NoScope’s gaming glasses, not necessarily to prevent migraines or eye strain but to improve my reflexes. The tinted glasses help to distinguish enemy pilots over far distances in a battlefield that’s very cluttered with random AI grunts and miscellaneous non-user enemies. Your eyes eventually adjust to the tinted lenses so that the gaming environment seems like it is a natural color spectrum. In Titanfall, knowing which enemies are more lethal comes in very handy considering Grunts and Spectre AI are rarely a physical threat.
NoScope Gaming Glasses are no luxury Cazal 607 designer shades, but they get the job done. I doubt anyone at an MLG COD: Ghosts tourney is trying to look pretty anyway, not to say the glasses look bad at all. At only $20, it’s hard not to recommend them to those of you in the market for gaming glasses. My only gripe with the glasses is the amount of finger prints they’ll accumulate from touching the lenses, but thankfully, NoScope included a microfiber cloth to clean them along with a dustbag/carrying case. NoScope retails at half the price of the most wallet friendly gaming glasses I’ve seen. It’s closest competitor is the Vision Concepts Gamer’s Edge Eyewear at $39.99.
No review score for this one folks, as with most of our accessory reviews. At $20 you can’t beat NoScope; we recommend a purchase if you want to improve your video game performance and/or prevent eye strain related incidents while gaming.
