Sony's 3D glasses do pretty much what you'd expect them to do. There's no exciting new functionality, just your standard pair of 3D glasses. They use an IR sensor to get sync information from your TV and they manage to look nice, as far as 3D glasses can look nice.
What they don't do is recharge. Sony's glasses come with a replaceable battery that the company says is capable of a 100 hour lifespan. After that, you'll have to pop it out and slip a new battery in. It's a bit inconvenient, but it's not a deal breaker – especially when you don't really have other options.
You can pick up the new 3D glasses directly from the Sony Style store for $149. Sony's child-sized glasses run the same price and come in either pink or blue. The 3D transmitter comes in at $49.
