HyperX is announcing the release of the Spectre line of eyewear, which is designed to reduce strain on the eyes by blocking blue light, mitigating negative effects from extended screen use by gamers, students, and professionals. It includes three “families” of glasses: Stealth, React, and Scout (the last is intended for youth), with each family offering a variety of lens technology options, designs, colors, and sizes. The collection features impact-resistant lenses that provide both blue light and UV protection while using digital devices.
Research by the Vision Council suggests that high energy blue light rays can cause eye fatigue, blurry vision, and lack of sleep. Spectre Eyewear is designed to block blue light and mitigate those symptoms.

“We are excited to introduce the new HyperX Spectre Eyewear collection with gaming lens profiles that are specific to HyperX,” said Stephanie Winkler, strategic marketing manager, HyperX. “The clear lens profiles allow users to see every graphic and detail as they are intended to be seen with minimal color distortion, all while blocking harmful blue wavelengths of light. As more and more families and gamers are working and schooling remote, the versatile new Spectre Eyewear lineup provides digital eyestrain protection and transitions from gaming to the office to the couch and everywhere in between.”
All models have nylon lenses designed to reduce color distortion. The Stealth models use thin-flex stainless steel temples, contouring injection tips, and flex hinge meant to minimize pressure when paired with a headset. The Stealth family is available in three frame styles with three color options: black to red fade, black to crystal fade, and satin black.
The React line offers optional polarized clip-on sunglass lenses that attach using magnets. They protect from 100% UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. They have polycarbonate lenses made to minimize eyestrain from colored or blurry vision. It also has a lightweight, flexible design, is optimized for use with a headset, and it has multiple frame styles with or without the sunglass clip. The Scout youth collection has color-blocking accents with blue, green, or white colorways. They feature polycarbonate lenses that filter out blue light, reducing the effects of eyestrain, and textured temple tips to minimize slippage. The React and Stealth families come with a hard case and a microfiber pouch; the Scout comes with a microfiber pouch.
The HyperX Spectre Eyewear lineup hits Amazon on September 30th, and prices begin at $39.99.
