  Best Overall Gaming Glasses: FPS Designed by Razer

Highly versatile and highly comfortable, the FPS model designed by Razer reigns as the best overall. At 26 grams, FPS is the lightest gamer glasses model. These glasses were specifically designed for compatibility with Razer headsets. With adjustable nose pads and flexible temples, these glasses work well for a wide variety of head and face types. If you want it all, these frames have got it all!

  • Temple: 138 mm
  • Weight: 26 grams

Best for Style Gaming Glasses: Intercept

If you want to protect your eyes in style look no further than the Intercept. This sleek retro frame design marries the future with the past. You get GUNNAR's patented lens technology, plus a great looking pair of glasses. The frames are a bit larger than those of other styles. And with these ones, the temples are not as flexible. If you have a huge brain (slightly larger head), then these may not be for you (give the FPS or RPG a try though!). Less compatible with headphones, so if that's important for your gaming experience, try one of the other models.

If no matter what game you're playing comfort is the name of your game, then RPG Designed by Razer is your go to! Designed to be solid and durable, the RPG weighs 33 grams. The hinges and frames on these are crazy flexible (more so than the FPS). They'll fit almost anyone, and they'll be comfortable. The ear guards are bendable to adjust to you. Just like the FPS, these were designed with Razer headsets in mind. Comfort, durability, and practicality: what more could you need?

If you are not used to wearing glasses or find the edges of glasses distracting to your gaming experience, the Torpedo is made for you. With a half-rim frame for minimal visual distractions, this frame has a great design for panoramic viewing. At only 24 grams, a mere gram heavier than the FPS model, the Torpedo is very lightweight. Like the FPS and RPG, its design also allows for audio headset compatibility, but is not specifically designed for Razer headsets.
