3D glasses

Didn't work for me, my 3D doesn't work, can't click on it to activate, not good!! And that is a XBR-65X930D sony tv.

Sony 3D Glasses

  • from Surrey, BC

Very good 3D glasses

I bought two of them a few weeks ago, watched a couple of movies and no complaint so far. These 3D glasses along with a Sony XBR65X850C and an Oppo player made me enjoy these 3D movies. These Sony TDGT500A glasses are very good although a little bit expensive in my opinion.

  • from Kitchener, ON

Working well !

Just watched first 3D movie-Life of Pi; All looked impressive. Now that have these around will look for more dvd with this content. Heard they were hard to find on-line...had no trouble thru Best Buy and would recommend. :)

  • from Windsor, ON

Good item for the price

Had these 3d glasses for a month now Watched a few movies with them, and they work great Good quality and descent price

  • from Toronto, ON

Very good!

I bought 2 for my Sony-Bravia-KDL-50W800C. They both work very well. Only in one instance, I noticed the flickering of the shutters (Watching Despicable Me 3D). Other than that, it's comfortable, easy to use, and offers a very good 3D experience.

  • from Sherwood Park, AB

Simple to sync, easy to use, good quality.

It took time to finally get these glasses, they're rarely in stock, even through Sony. I'd seen reviews saying the glasses were very difficult to register with the television but I read and followed the instructions and had all three sets of glasses registered in about two minutes, I'm happy with this product!

  • from Aurora, ON

Doesn't work with all TV's

Does not work with my 3D TV, a Panasonic TC-58VT25. I was told by Best Buy personnel that it would but it didn't so I returned it to Best Buy

  • from Montréal, QC

Works Perfectly 0n 55" XBR850C

Amazing! 0verall worked great with no flicker and it is so cool watching 3D movies in our living room! Full HD resolution and impressive picture.Thankfully, I have not had any issues in trying to pair the glasses.GREAT JOB SONY!!!

  • from Nanaimo, BC

works fine eventually

Waited months to finally get these. Cant understand why they are not more available. Paring was in issue and they seem to need to be restarted often, but once they are on and you are watching a movie, they work great. The 3d is better than I expected. No fllckers, clear picture.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Work well but hard to get

These glasses are hard buy due to a global shortage . Very strange since everyone with a new 4K Sony needs them for 3D.Waited since Oct 2015 (6months) .When a shipment arrives they are gone in 24 hrs .Had issues pairing them ,if this happens go in your tv menu and re-do the initial setup then it works fine .Glasses are awesome and work great

  • from London, ON

3D Awesome

Waited along time for these to show up and when they did I snatched a couple of them. Synced no problem and brought a whole new adventure to in-home movies. Light weight and no issue wearing on top of glasses.

  • from Newmarket, ON

Nice Glasses

Read all the negative reviews and have 2 pair and fiund them amazing. The carlity of the 3d images are the best I have ever seen. No problems with nose pieces and such as I have read.

  • from Windsor, ON

so so

Don't work as well as I had hope but I didn't buy the tv for the 3-d so... A little over priced for sure.

  • from Thornhill, ON


I was under the impression these were rechargable as are most active 3D glasses.... Big battery, just don't forget to turn them off.....t

Sony Active 3D Glasses

I had to call Sony to get my T.V. to send a signal to the Glasses, Which they did through the internet. But they work very well and I am happy with them. Only complaint is it took forever to get Best Buy to order them, and I have tried to get more glasses but have to wait again until they order more

  • from Bedford, NS

Sony 3D glasses

My first experience as well...bought 2 pairs and synced the first with the TV and thought they were as good as could be expected. I followed the instructions on how to power down and then back up but this time they refused to sync or work with my TV. I removed the battery for a day to get them to lose their memory but they still didn't work. Luckily I had a second pair which synced, powered off, powered back on and worked well so far.

  • from Elliot Lake, On

OK glasses

Since this is my first experience with 3D glasses, in my limited knowledge I found them OK. My only issue is the lack on comfort around the nose. They pinch, stick and leave indents after wearing them( my wife and I found the same problem). I find if I put tissue on the bridge is helps

  • from Vancouver B.C.


Received these same glasses with my new Sony 55" 3D Smart TV and bought 2 more pairs as they are fantastic. Easy to set up and comfortable. Remove the nose piece and you can use them with regular glasses.
