Default Passive 3D glasses

Just curious what recommendations are out there for some better 3D glasses than those that come with the 3D Tv's.
I know that the Oakley gascans and the rocketfish are supposed to be good,
But im looking at spending less that $70 for a pair lol.
Been looking into trying to get a pair of curved ones..

If you just need passive. Try just grabbing a few from a movie theatre. Sure they are cheap but no money out of your pocket and they work. Some will be nice enough to give you a few for free (i use too) Also being close to Halloween, just say you need a few for some costumes as nerd glasses

yea i got loads from the cinema's as well as 2 x2 packs of LG AF 200's plus the LG cylindrical box of 6.
Out of all those the only pair that are really comfortable is the AG-F 260 metal frames,and even as comfortable as they are,when watching the TV you do still get a glare from behind in the side of the lens, which is quite annoying ( if that makes sense).
Maybe i should just be happy with what i got

I use the True Depth 3D circular polarized glasses , I also have a pair of Oakley glasses & the terminator style glasses.

The True Depth glasses block the "side glare" better and are flat black.

I have the OLED LG TV and the passive 3D glasses seem pretty low quality, can any one recommend a much better set? I'm willing to pay extra for them. Thanks

If you really want to splurge go for the passive 3D Oakley Gascan Glasses. I bought a pair of the Transformers: DotM pair while they were still in production. It was $120 then, but Oakley stopped doing 3D glasses. There were some cool special edition glasses like Tron, Tin Tin, Hobbit... etc. But they will be heavily marked up on eBay.

Will these glasses work in the theater for RealD 3D and IMAX 3D? I am tired of the crappy ones you get a the theater.

You might want to check a few websites for the glasses. With a little google-fu, I found these

http://www.optics3d.co.uk/

https://www.amazon.com/Better-quality-passive-3D-Panasonic/dp/B014G8R2IE/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1491610897&sr =1-3&keywords=reald+3d+glasses

Looks like Amazon has a bunch of them.

YMMV

Probably not compatible for Imax but should be ok for RealD. (I sometimes bring my clip-on lenses and they work fine for RealD.)

Try a pair of Gunnars , you can find them on Ebay / amazon. discontinued but very high quality. Gunnar used to make 3 versions of these. Lo/mid/high priced. They are used by videographers that edit 3d movies all day long. Very clear and distortion free. Someone over at the AVs forums did a comparison of all the good 3D glasses, Oakleys gunnars etc. and these looked the best.

Interesting! I was cleaning through my apartment this evening and saw my vintage Howard the Duck Slurpee cups stuffed with all these theater 3-D glasses from the previous years.

I was debating on throwing them in the recycle bin, but thought I probably could use them one day, if I ever start crapping money and finally get my own 3-D television.

Any suggestions on how to clean them? They are a little dusty. I thought of running them under some water, to avoid any abrasion on the lenses, but feared it might get moisture trapped in the joints.
