XPAND YOUniversal 3D Glasses

Color: Dark Blue
Size: Large

YOUniversal series 3D electronic USB rechargeable eyewear that optimizes the 3D experience by modifying the 3D parameters specifically for each user and for different 3D environments. The high-end electronic eyewear offers unprecedented personal optimization, full HD 3D performance, advanced interoperability between all 3D devices and market-leading comfort and style.

Using a specialized smart phone app, XPAND YOUniversal glasses can be optimized to address the fact that every human’s eyes and facial structure are unique and that each user’s viewing requirements and environment are different. The new YOUniversal high-end glasses will begin shipping in Q3 2011 and will communicate with Infrared (IR), Bluetooth (BT) and Radio Frequency (RF). The smart phone app will initially be available for Apple iPhone™ and Google Android™ platforms.

The YOUniversal glasses put YOU in universal. No two people view 3D in the exact same way: XPAND electronic 3D glasses comprehensively addresses the unique differences in people’s vision, the viewing environment and selection of 3D devices, thus creating the ultimate 3D experience!

Artistically designed by the acclaimed Gigodesign studio, XPAND YOUniversal electronic eyewear provides remarkable comfort and style. XPAND’s approach to the development of the YOUniversal glasses is one of no compromise. The glasses feature the best innovations. Every parameter from viewer optimization, interoperability, unit weight and comfort was evaluated and XPAND made groundbreaking improvements in every category. This new high-end product starts a new era of 3D lifestyle. XPAND proves once again that 3D quality is essential. Anything short of full HD 3D performance is a weak, unacceptable compromise!

The new YOUniversal glasses are not simply the lightest active shutter 3D glasses in the marketplace, they’re also the fastest by a significant margin. Moreover, their ability to operate across so many different communication protocols brings a new level of universality to the 3D experience. XPAND is deeply committed to maximum 3D quality. Only active 3D glasses can provide full HD 3D experiences, but this is only the first step in 3D evolution. Our YOUniversal 3D glasses are personally optimized to the individual human visual capabilities with maximum comfort and customizability that allows them to work in all modern 3D environments.

    I have a home theater with a JVC DLA-X3 Projector, JVC IR Emitter, and a 133" screen. So far the picture between the X103 and X104 glasses is the same, there is a slight ghosting in both the left and right lenses with both pairs of glasses, I am hoping that when Xpand launches the smart phone App or PC app the shutter adjustments will alleviate this problem with the X104's at least. The glasses are more comfortable to wear than the X103's (which are exactly the same as the JVC 3D glasses, although I didn't notice any ghosting with the JVC models when I borrowed them from a friend). The only down side to the new design seems to be that without the large flared side on the arms light is allowed in from the side and you do get a little bit of reflection on the glasses (My theater setup is a VERY dark room with dark walls but I noticed the reflection issue when I left the door open and so feel it would be an issue for anyone that doesn't have the ability to darken their room). I may increase the rating when the app comes out in Q1 of 2012 (that is when Xpand has said it should release), I just feel that when the big deal with these new glasses is the personalizing ability of the App then the App should be available at launch (Bluetooth and DLP options are also currently not available but listed as a benefit), in this regard Xpand is very disorganized. Hope this review helps.

    I bought 2 pair of these 3D glasses to work with my new Panasonic AE7000U projector based on good reviews from other. The glasses failed to sync even after setting the mode correctly using the Application Software. The charging connector is at the tail end of the frame handle covered by a flimsy cap that you will surely lose. This will result in one handle being shorter than the other and uncomfortable to wear.

    I contacted Xpand Tech Support and was told to return the glasses. I have been trying to return these glasses to Projector People, but have not been able to obtain an RMA number for several days. I have submitted the RMA request, called customer service, left voice mail with sales person, and emailed...

        As stated already better feel and design than the x103, more universal as they are compatible with newer standards (blinks 11different channels versus 5 or 6 for the 103's). Hopefully these will be more UNIVERSAL and work with my next upgrade uoke the 103's.

        I have a JVC DLA-X7 and these work great with it. The setup is really easy. Just charge the glasses, turn them on and wait for the light to stop blinking and you are done. I would recommend these as they are cheaper than the factory glasses and work great.

          Comments about XPAND X104 YOUniversal 3D glasses:

          I recently upgraded my home theater projector to JVC's DLA-X30, which projects onto a 109" screen. I tested Xpand's X104's against the X103's and JVC's own 3D glasses (which I understand are manufactured by Xpand as well). The X104's are significantly more comfortable than the X103's and the JVC branded glasses. The recharging capability is certainly a welcomed feature, as both the X103 and the JVC's require user changeable batteries. The X104's are very easy to setup, and the synch with my projector and IR transmitter was quick. As far as image quality goes, the X104's and X103's are very similar in image quality. They are both slightly darker than the JVC branded models, and the quality on the JVC's is slightly better. All three models still suffer from slight ghosting in both the left and right lenses. From a comfort standpoint, the X104's are very comfortable to wear and work well over prescription glasses. One thing to be careful with is the rubber port cover at the end of the earpiece. The cover is connected to the earpiece via a very thin strand that seems rather flimsy, and I don't think it's going to last, but we'll see. I am highly anticipating the app and have high expectations that it will improve the X104's performance. Hope this is helpful.

            Ordered at the same time I ordered a Sharp 3D LC-60LE835U HDTV. I ordered Universal 3D Glasses because 3D TV reviewers seem to not like OEM 3D glasses. The Xpand line of Universal 3D Glasses have good reviews, but I ordered this latest model from projectorpeople.com because they are not readily available from all sources, and Xpand.com recommended projector people. These glasses immediately recognized my Sharp 3D emitter signal. Be sure to give them a good charge before you use them. They appear to hold their charge for a reasonable long time.

              The product works for my Panasonic PT-AE7000U 3D projector and my Samsung 3D Plasma 2010 Full HD TV. The results are excellent. The X104 3D glasses fit comfortably over my regular eyeglasses.

              The product is somewhat difficult to activate the first time with a new 3D source. Once it recognizes the 3D source, it will automatically recognize it in the future. The power on button is difficult to turn on without taking off the glasses. Once you get used to how to turn on the glasses, it should no longer be a big deal.

              The product was released before support is available from the manufacturer. Tech guys at manufacturer don't know much about the X104 product and the website is clueless on this very new product. The website is also unfriendly about updating firmware for all their 3D glasses.

                  I was concerned that since these were new, and didn't specifically list my Epson projector, that they might not work. Out of the 4 pairs I purchased, 3 just worked as soon as I turned them on. One, I had to go through the setup process before it would bind to the projector, but that only took about 5 mins. If they would have actually had the pc or phone app available at launch, I probably would have rated it a 5. Other than user supplied comments in their own forums, the actual information and support from the company itself seems a little lacking.

                      I have the x104 YOUniversal glasses and they have been great. If you don't want rechargeable glasses then the X103 lenses have replaceable batteries and also work very well (I have 2 pairs of both glasses). You do shouldn't need a remote IR Emitter as the IR signal will bounce back off the screen and hit the receiver on the glasses. Hope this helps.

                    I bought the X103 and they did not work.

                    Thanks, Don

                      A:

                      the glasses that will work best will be the Optoma BG3DRFGLASSES
                      that are listed on our website for the Optoma HD33.

                    Will the x104's work with Samsung UND60D7050. Bought in 2012, 3D LED. Xpand thinks they might work only because the x103 won't. But the web site says either will work with the 7000 series.
                    I don't want to mail them back and forth if they won't work.

                    Are these glasses compatible with the newer epson projectors (6010). How large are the glasses, would they fit a child?

                      Yes, these glasses are compatible with the Epson line of projectors. They have different sized nose pieces in the box, so you should be able to fit them on a child.

                      Hi!
                      I bought my glasses to go with the Epson Home Cinema 3010 3D HDTV projector (for which they work very well with).

                      Not sure about the Mits 73840, we don't carry that product. I would confirm it with Xpand.
