Diffraction glasses are our go-to visual enhancers to wear during raves, festivals, and clubs because they allow us to see striking bright color beams from light sources on the stage, yet but they don’t impair you to the point where you lose the visual sense of your surroundings. There are many different types of diffraction glasses to choose from, and here we will be reviewing and explaining the different types on the market we've found to be best in class. All are available on amazon.
Rainbow Diffraction Glasses (The classics)
You won't be disappointed with these classic diffraction glasses. The rainbow effect is the most popular type of diffraction glasses and they are guaranteed to rock your world. When wearing these, you see rainbow-colored rays emitting from light sources in your visual field. We like to describe the rainbow effect from these glasses like space travel. It's almost as if you can see light trails of the stars and galaxies you pass while traveling at the speed of light in a spaceship. These diffraction are available on Amazon here.
Heart Diffraction Glasses (P.L.U.R Glasses)
Peace. Love. Unity. Respect. When you look through these glasses, it feels like love is flowing from all around you. Aim these pair of shades at a light source and the first thing you'll notice is the abundance of hearts being emitted from the lenses. Rave heart diffraction glasses are available on Amazon here.
Spiral (Worth experimenting with)These glasses produce an effect similar to rainbow diffraction glasses except the streams of light diffracting on the lens take a spiral shape instead of being straight beamed. These are not the most popular style of diffraction glasses but people still love them. Spiral diffraction glasses are available on Amazon here.
Paper Diffraction Glasses (For the rave squad)
Take any of the visual effects mentioned above, Heart, Spiral, Rainbow and imagine them on a paper frame like your going to see a 3-D movie! Paper diffraction glasses have their advantages. When your at a rave or concert you run the risk of losing your diffraction glasses or having them break by someone accidentally stepping on them. Paper diffraction glasses are useful because they are cheap which allows you to buy many of them in bulk for your rave squad without having to worry about it breaking the bank. Don’t expect paper diffraction glasses to last long though. Although convenient, these glasses are usually a one-time use type of gig. There's one paper diffraction glasses made by GloFX that comes in a really cool frame. They are available on Amazon here. They look super futuristic which is a cool style to wear in the EDM scene.
Diffraction Goggles (Also known as the best rave toys ever)
If you're a serious raver, you won't want to pass up learning about diffraction goggles. Having been introduced to the rave scene only in recent years, diffraction goggles are taking over the community by storm! These goggles not only provide an awesome ray of rainbow-colored diffraction, but they are really stylish. The goggles give a futuristic look which is a style well accepted in the EDM community. These goggles are also really sturdy, so they are a lot less likely to get lost or broke because the strap on the goggles stays on your head stronger than paper or plastic diffraction glasses would. These goggles really enhance your rave experience, not only because they refract light well but because everyone around you will want to try these on because they look so cool! These diffraction goggles can be purchased on Amazon here.
