“HD” Vision Products
The As Seen on TV landscape has seen a spate of products carrying an “HD” label over the past couple of years. In the case of HD Vision Night Vision glasses, the brand’s flagship product “HD Vision Wraparounds” – which advertised heavily back in 2008 – has been joined by its newer “Night Vision” counterpart. Ironcially, the website used in the original product’s advertising, hdwraparounds.com, is no longer in use and is now parked. That website was originally registered back in 2008. The “official” website now includes the “night” reference in its name.
Our HD Vision Review
Our tests with the HD Vision glasses (both night vision and sunglasses) yielded a consensus that these are indistinguishable from amber-tinted sunglasses, with the night vision version merely having less tint than the regular glasses.
Oddly, neither of these products are advertised to be polarized. Polarization is the industry standard for glare reduction in eye wear. The product’s amber tint does in fact reduce white and blue light, but it does not eliminate glare. One concern we have is that tinted glasses can slightly reduce visibility at night.
The glasses are large and designed to fit over regular glasses. For those consumers who don’t wear glasses, this gives the HD Vision glasses a somewhat over-sized feel, and may not seem very stylish.
And, to point out the obvious, the term “night vision” does not mean that you can see in the dark while wearing these glasses.
Alternatives and Competitors to HD Vision
Aside from the prior incarnation of HD Vision sunglasses, there is another As Seen on TV competitor with a very similar product called Night View NV. Other than design differences, the two products make nearly identical claims. We should also mention that Easy View XT glare blocker for use in cars is yet another example of such “HD” vision products.
The chart below shows search popularity for this product. As you can see, interest peaked in early 2014 and has waned since that time.
We don’t feel that HD Vision Night Vision glasses quite live up to the hype of the television advertising. A pair of lightly-tinted polarized sunglasses easily out-performed HD Vision glasses in our tests of glare reduction. If you would like to try out the product, we recommend purchasing it locally in order to avoid shipping fees and delays.
