These HPSx transition glasses are phenomenal in the grow room. I could not go another day without them. The strain on your eyes is gone (especially when paired with a hat), and the color is back to normal. I forget that I'm looking at plants that are under a yellow HPS light sometimes. I have used the HPS+ "perfect color" shades before, and they are the same. However, I don't see the "transition" feature working too well, and repeatedly I find myself comparing the website to my shades to see if I was sent the wrong pair, but my lenses are stamped HPSx. I have done numerous tests, both leaving them inside, and purposely exposing them to direct sunlight for several minutes. I do not notice a difference, so I'm going to go ahead and say these are NOT transition lenses. If anyone has a different experience please post about it, however overall, I am satisfied as I did not buy these to replace my daily sunglasses. Hi D, We're glad you are overall enjoying the glasses. The transition feature doesn't darken the lenses, rather changes from blue to grey. We've intentionally left a light lens to allow as much visual information in as possible, for those growing both inside and out. The photochromic technology will have varying results depending on weather conditions. - Method Seven
Sunglass by day, grow glass by night. The HPSx lens is a proprietary polycarbonate blend that allows it to transition from the signature blue of our HPS color-balancing technology to a dark grey/blue tint when exposed to direct sunlight.
Transition is activated by direct sunlight and darkens fully within three minutes. Transition experience varies based on conditions and UV exposure. Experience balanced color and protect your eyes for hours of comfort and enjoyment, wherever the day takes you. Italian-made Coup frame with concealed flex hinges. HPSx lens made in the USA. Microfiber pouch included for proper cleaning and storage.
I use them for growing but best of all is I'm a window cleaner and I use them for work as well. The best glasses I could use as I'm looking at the sun most of the day so Method Seven you have help me out loads that's all I can say. Many thanks.
Big shout to the Method Seven team from over here in the UK England. These Coup Transitions are special. Thanks a lot keep up the good work
