More importantly, they function as well as they look. Rather than depend on polarizing or bizarre lens colors, VedaloHD has embedded a proprietary material right into the lens. The effect is to boost the red end of the visible range, reducing the effect of haze. Chris Pederson, the marketing director, says the drawback is that they’ve been unable to offer a prescription version. From what we’ve seen (pun intended), that’s not a problem for most folks in that VedaloHD offers a clip-on for regular eyewear.
They’re offered with titanium wire frames that are hinged so that annoying springy-ness is avoided when they’re being put away. The standard frames stood out a bit too far for one of the testers and allowed noise in past the headset cushions. The other tester, with not so narrow a face, had no problem.
While a bit pricey at $165, they’re hard to beat for comfort and function. For more information, visit VedaloHD.
