Last year, Razer made a surprise entry into the Bluetooth audio glasses market with its Anzu “smart glasses” — and the result was surprisingly good. In terms of sound, the Anzu were only a little behind The Bose Tenor and Soprano audio glasses, and I was generally impressed with them.

At launch, they were $200. But now the round and rectangular versions are reduced to $60, which could mean that a new model is on the way. That said, if you’re curious about Bluetooth audio glasses but don’t like the high price tag, this is a very affordable way to try them out. Best Buy previously held this same sale, but the deal is currently available on Amazon, with the large and regular sizes available for $60.

Although they are a bit bassy, ​​they have more bass than some models on our list of best bluetooth audio glasses and sunglasses. Anzu glasses are light and comfortable to wear (I tried the square version in “normal” size). The regular size weighs 43 grams while the large weighs 48 grams. By comparison, Amazon’s Echo frames weigh 31 grams. The glasses include 35% blue light filtering lenses as well as a set of polarized sun lenses (you can easily swap them out). These smart glasses are touch-enabled, and you can play or pause media, manage calls, and easily pair them to your PC device. The built-in Bluetooth speaker hidden on its frame delivers stutter-free sound and does not skip or delay audio.

They are IPX4 water resistant (meaning they are splash proof). Audio glasses work well for running and biking because they leave your ears open so you can hear traffic. Battery life is rated at 5 hours at moderate volume levels, and additional polarized lenses are available for $30.

Also worth noting: Since Razer is a ‘gaming lifestyle’ company, it’s touting its low-latency Bluetooth technology. It says “the custom Bluetooth 5.1 connection brings industry-leading 60ms latency for smooth, stutter-free sound.”

The Razer Anzu is available in the round style.

The Razer Anzu companion app for iOS and Android enables firmware updates, lets you make EQ settings (default, enhanced clarity, or treble boost), access latency settings, and check battery status. You can make calls with them and access your virtual assistant at the push of a button.

Razer has partnered with Lensabl for prescription eyewear lenses, which offers a 15% discount to Anzu owners, but you can compare its prices with other sites. Online replacement lens sites, such as replacerxlenses.com and nightglasses.com, can fit them with Rx lenses.
