GloFX Glasses - What R They ?


Super Cool Diffraction Glasses Designed To Blow Your Mind!

Make the most of every EDM festival or Rave party with our famous Diffraction Glasses. Choose from loads of styles. Whether you call them prism glasses, firework, rainbow, rave, gradient, aura, laser, or EDM glasses, you can be sure GloFX diffraction glasses are the highest quality for you.

Diffraction glasses are the must have Rave/EDM accessory for every music or concert fan. So, why should you buy a pair? Due to their special kind of lenses, these glasses diffract any light source into an intense blast of colors. By splitting white light into its component colors, diffraction glasses have the power to enhance and completely change the way you experience the visual impact of music.

If you love to attend rave concerts or music festivals, if you're bored and desire a little extra visual stimulation or if you want to add a dash of psychedelic colors to any kind of visual event, you should probably start looking for a pair of Glo_FX Glasses. Our shades come in a variety of colors and styles. See the world in a new whole way with our Glo_FX Glasses. 

Examples of some Diffraction effects:


Examples from our range of Ultra-High Quality Diffraction and Electro-Luminescence (non-diffraction) Shutter Frame glasses:

 Above: EL-Frame Diffraction and                          Above: Kaleidoscope Diffraction and
                 EL-Shutter Frames.                                                     Flip-Up Glow-Green Frames. 


** Glo_FX Luminescence Shutter Frame Glasses do NOT have a lens, therefore have no diffraction properties. They do however have the coolest and latest Electro-Luminescence (EL) Glowing/Flashing frames on the market. These shutter frame glasses are really amazing :) 

Diffraction Glasses and EL Glasses are typically worn by concert and rave-goers. Diffraction glasses feature a special lens that diffracts light into a gradient spectrum of colors. There are different types of diffraction effects such as spiral diffraction, heart diffraction, star diffraction, and the most popular crosshatched line diffraction. These glasses are primarily used for looking at visual displays, 3D projections & screens, moving light shows, music festivals, fireworks, parties, and lasers shows among endless other uses!


Diffraction Glasses are named based on their principal function of diffracting lights through gradient etched lines. Ie: Light Diffraction. However, these off beat sunglasses are often times called by a variety of names including: Rave Glasses, Rainbow Shades, Fireworks Sunglasses, Aura Viewer Glasses, Prism Glasses, Kaleidoscope Optical, Diffraction Eyewear ( Or spelled refraction, defraction or difraction ) Light Show Viewers, Laser Glasses, Gradient Lenses, Kaleidoscopic Bifocals, Light Grating lenses, 3-D Glasses, Raver Shades, Rave Spectacles, Raven Optics, Trip Glasses, trippy Sunglasses and many other multi dimensional eye wear terms.

They use a special kind of lens to diffract light into a multitude of rainbow colors. The lens works similar to a prism, splitting white light into its component colors. This means that whenever you put these glasses on, any light source will appear as a kaleidoscope of colors, intensifying your concert/rave experience like never before. They are also referred to as firework glasses, prism glasses, and rainbow glasses. If you are a music fanatic who loves to attend music festivals, concerts, and shows, Glo_FX Glasses should be first on your list of EDM gear. These shades will add a psychedelic effect to any concert experience or light show. They are also available in a wide variety of colors and styles, and now even in Limited Edition and exclusive models found only at Glo_FX. And rainbow glasses are not solely for music festivals alone-you can also use them for a wide variety of events where there are bright primary lights with the predominant background lights dim. For example, rainbow glasses add a whole new level of viewing experience to firework shows, light shows, and stage productions. They are also great for kids, Television screens, 3D stage performances, computer screens, and anything else needing a bit of visual enhancement!

How Do They Work (The real tech stuff)?

Take a look at the pics below...



You may have been recently introduced to a revolutionary visual experience called diffraction glasses. With its exciting effects, it’s taking the nation by storm. But what is diffraction really? Diffraction is defined as the process by which a beam of light waves is spread out as a result of passing through a narrow aperture or across an edge or “grating”.As the light passes through this grating, each beam of light is split into its individual spectrum of colours turning white light into a full rainbow spectrum. This is the main principle behind what gives diffraction glasses their awesome visual sensation. White light will show the widest array of colours, whereas looking at a blue light for example will show its component colours. Check out what diffraction glasses really look like when viewing a single light source! 

As you can see, just looking at a single light source creates a burst of colours. Now imagine looking at hundreds of holiday lights, fireworks, or lasers, and you can see why diffraction glasses have really become so popular.



The history of diffraction goes back far beyond over 300 years ago, when Sir Issac Newton observed a beam of sunlight pass through a glass prism. What he discovered is that light is made up of a spectrum ranging from 7 different visible colors. This is the exact same visible spectrum that you see when wearing diffraction glasses today! During this time a man by the name of Francesco Maria Grimaldi, also observed and characterized what would soon be known as light diffraction. Francesco is also known for coining the term “diffraction,” from the Latin “diffringere,” ‘to break into pieces.’ Fast forwarding through history, a scientist named James Gregory observed the first form of diffraction grating, by studying the light break up caused by bird feathers. Throughout the years, their observations were studied and molded into the theories and laws, which govern, light diffraction as we know it today. 

Diffraction, in physics, is the spreading out of waves, such as those of water, sound, radio, or light, as they pass around an obstacle or go through an opening. A couple everyday examples are water waves spreading out as they move around an obstacle such as a projecting rock in a stream. These waves have been diffracted. Another more familiar form happens when a light hits the back of your favorite CD, casting a rainbow of colors, or simply the hologram on your credit card is the result of light grating. Light waves ordinarily will not bend around corners, but they will be diffracted when they pass through tiny openings. This is the key to providing an awesome and stimulating visual experience. When light strikes a grating (in our glasses this is the lens) which is marked with thousands of parallel lines, the light waves are caused to spread in such a way that they produce a spectrum, or rainbow, as pictured above! Even tiny water droplets can act as a grating to create a 3D prism of light diffraction.


Diffraction Glasses Effects 

Another cool fact about diffraction is that you can actually tell a plethora of different information based on the spectrum of colors it produces, when the light it emits, passes through a diffraction grating. For example, you can determine how hot the object is, how fast it's moving, or what it's made of. When looking at objects, such as distant stars, this kind of information   can be very beneficial. Realistically though, you are most likely buying a pair of these glasses for entertainment purposes and could care less about the temperature of a star millions of light years away. 

So what makes the best diffraction glasses? Well, it depends what you are looking for out of your glasses. Some people enjoy a softer effect to wear during the day and for long-term use. Whereas most people look for the most intense effect created by multiple lasers of grating materials or multiple lenses. If you are looking for Rave Glasses, we recommend an intense effect as found with 3D Diffraction Glasses, or Matrix Glasses.

Do keep in mind, the more diffraction you have, the less white light passes through the lens creating a more blurry view. The best diffraction glasses at the end of the day are judged on a personal perspective. Luckily, Glo_FX offers hundreds of dimensional eyewear options. You’re bound to find a pair of EDM glasses or rainbow glasses that suites you. 


Why GloFX Glasses?

Now that you are an expert in all things diffraction there are many companies that sell diffraction glasses, but GloFX take pride in their passion for diffraction and LED eyewear. Since 2009, their team has engineered and developed dimensional eyewear for entertainment purposed along with hundreds of other LED & Glow products.

GloFX has led the industry since it’s start, first introducing a pair of hard frame laser etched diffraction glasses in 2009. Every year since, more and more frames and lenses been released from Glo_FX. Since 2012, GloFX has been in high gear releasing multiple new models every month. Now offering the largest selection of diffraction frames and lenses available on the market, it should be obvious Glo_FX has the edge. Quality and craftsmanship are prime components of Glo_FX Glasses, along with renowned effects and styles you cannot find anywhere else. 

Here at Maisy's Online Store, we aim to only sell products that we have tested and know for a FACT to do what they claim and be very durable and of the highest quality. That is why we offer Glo_FX products, they are simply TOP SHELF products.


What’s The Difference Between All The Different Kinds?

Note: Diffraction = light grating 

Standard: This style features a single layer of rainbow light grating material in a traditional plastic frame. 

Ultimate: Often called “Double Diffraction”. These frames actually feature about 30% more light grating and come in a variety of frame colors from black to neon and glow in the dark. Also available in tinted and auburn enhanced lenses to amplify your experience even more. The name “Ultimate” stems from their virtually indestructible frame and lenses. Obviously they are NOT totally indestructible, there are situations by which they will probably destruct, such as dropping them into a volcano, or subjecting them to similar extreme heat, putting them into an industrial shredder, smashing them with a sledge hammer over and over, submerging them in very nasty acid etc... But during the rigours of normal use (night-clubbing etc) and festival type environments these glasses really do stay together.

Matrix: These are what we consider quadruple diffraction. They have twice the effect of Ultimate glasses creating an immersive prismatic experience. The high quality makes these arguably the best option. These trippy glasses take your experience to the next level. 

Flip Ups: This variety of Flip Frame glasses all feature light grating lenses. Some feature different effects such as spiral or double spiral diffraction, matrix, or 3Diffraction (3D+light grating). 

Speciality: This category of glasses features our same Ultimate lens in an array of cool frames such as foldable diffraction glasses, heart frames, kitty cat frames, and more! Some also utilize spiral diffraction or other special effects lenses.

Limited Edition: Exclusive designs that you cannot find anywhere else. These rave glasses will make you stand out. Most are only produced in limited numbers and made from the most superior craftsmanship. 

Luminescence: EL (LED) Wire wrapped shades come in a plethora of styles from shutters to kaleidoscopic. Some feature a clear lens and others offer a variety of light grating prizm glasses effects!

Kaleidoscope: Very different from light grating, these glasses are made of real glass faceted crystal like lenses which create a “bug eye” experience of repeated patterns. Luxury and style are captured in the remarkable quality of this model. These glasses are truly a work of art. 

Cardboard: These custom manufactured paper diffraction glasses are a low cost version of hard plastic rave glasses. These feature the GloFX double effect, the same found in the ultimate series. Excellent for buying in bulk for all of your friends, a birthday party, or promotional use! 

Kids: Well this is pretty self-explanatory. Kid’s diffraction glasses are the same high quality but in smaller children’s sized frames.

We even have a range of Glo_FX glasses which are NOT diffraction, just regular normal sunglasses. However, these are really tough, and look really cool. They are made from the same almost indestructable material as the Ultimate Diffraction glasses, Again though, they are obviously NOT totally indestructible, there are situations by which they will probably destruct, such as dropping them into a volcano, or subjecting them to similar extreme heat, putting them into an industrial shredder, smashing them with a sledge hammer over and over, submerging them in liquid Nitrogen etc... But during the rigours of normal use and normal environments these glasses really do stay together.
