Blue-light blocking properties and built-in earphones!
Gaming glasses development
Razer’s product development team must work overtime! The company, which recently unveiled their reusable straw, have also released glasses, and while a stainless steel straw seems like a rather odd product for a gaming-tech company to launch, the Razer Ansu glasses are more in line with their wheelhouse.
The Razer Ansu is a bit more than your average pair of glasses. Rather fashionably designed (and available in round and rectangular wayfarer-style frames), the glasses are designed to be light and comfortable, perfect for wearing in front of screens or in the sun.
Armed with interchangeable lenses, the frames allow you to swap the eyepieces and choose between blue light filtering lenses (for excessive screen use) or polarised UV blocking lenses (for outdoor use)
Ope-ear audio drivers
And that’s not all. The frames are also equipped with ope-ear audio drivers, allowing them to function as earphones when you wear them. 16mm drivers carefully placed in the stems of the temples send sound directly to your ears, giving you a personalized, earphone-like listening experience without having to wear earphones. The Ansu pairs with devices via Bluetooth 5.1, so you can listen to music or podcasts from your phone, or even wear them while gaming (instead of sliding on those bulky headsets).
Microphones built into the Ansu
Of course, there are microphones built into the Ansu, and a touch-sensitive area on the glasses lets you do things like control playback or activate your phone’s voice assistant. The Ansu comes with a battery that lasts for 5 hours (and turns off when you ‘close’ the glasses) and is even IPX4 water-resistant, so a little rain shouldn’t really stop you from wearing the glasses outdoors.
The Ansu is available in two shapes (round and rectangular) in two sizes and comes with a chic leather carrying case. In addition, Razer has partnered with Lensabl to offer a 15% discount on prescription lenses for Anzu buyers who require corrective lenses.
