The other two reviewers are from East Coast, so I thought I would chime and add the West Coast perspective here.... If you're not used to wearing glasses most often, then these or most other 3D glasses (passive or active) will feel uncomfortable after a while. Having said that, the Alice 3d glasses bundle feel more comfortable because they are more adjustable than these 3d-narnia glasses. First the good thing about this 3d Narnia Bundle: it's rechargeable:. That's about it. With the Alice one you'd need to place in batteries every once in a while, which does add cost in owning the darn thing. Bad things: (1) It's rechargeable, means that it's batteries over time will deplete to point where the glasses will... well useless (Anyone have 5-year old phones that stay charged fully as when bought new?). (2) the charger that comes with the package is USB only, so you would have to buy separate charger that plugs into the wall. (3) the bag that holds the glasses is much cheaper and flaky than the 3d-alice bundle. The Alice glass bag feels like real velvet, uses heavy materials and top that snaps together. The narnia glass bag feel like they were made of imitation velvet with string as closure materials. This may be small detailed item, but for someone who purchased a fine luxury car be sold a ford pinto (or worse) from the same dealer (manufacturer/Sony) is disheartening to say the least. (4) not to offend anyone who is true die-hard fan of narina series, the movie is okay but the 3D version is just well... not that much different than seeing it in 2D. There are like two watchable scenes with 3D effects in the entire movie, but the rest is something that 8th graders would make for their class project. Hope that helps.

Much Better than my other pairs
from Battle Creek, MI
Contrary to the first reviewer, I actually prefer these glasses to the Alice bundle glasses for several reasons. First let me state that I have had my 3D TV for a little over a year and just bought this 2nd starter pack for extra glasses. I was pleased to see that they had included rechargeable glasses in the bundle. I also was excited by the new lighter weight of the newer style glasses. They are, in my opinion, a big improvement in comfort vs. the glasses included in the Alice starter kit. Depending on the size of your head, they do press on the side of your head more than they need too, but I imagine it is difficult to make a one size fits all glasses frame that pleases everyone. Overall, I would definitely recommend this kit over the Alive kit.
