3D TV Learn more

Samsung's 3D TVs can only deliver a 3D viewing experience if you're wearing compatible Samsung 3D glasses. These active glasses have special liquid crystal lenses which open and close in precise coordination with the 3D content displayed on the TV screen. Each of your eyes will see a slightly different image with full 1080p resolution. That's what creates the 3D effect.

Samsung's SSG-3700CR 3D glasses communicate via Bluetooth® signals with the 3D emitter built into 2011 and 2012 Samsung 3D TVs, both LED-LCD and plasma. These compact, ultra-lightweight glasses are powered by a rechargeable battery. Warranty: 1 year.

Features

Overview: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) include one pair of 3D active glasses with built-in Bluetooth and integrated rechargeable battery, as well as a flexible nose-piece, rubber shade, USB charging cable, and cleaning cloth. Samsung's 3D active glasses allow you to experience high-definition (full 1080p) 3D entertainment from 2011 Samsung 3D-ready LED-LCD and Plasma TVs from a 3D-ready Blu-ray player (with 3D movie), or satellite/cable provider broadcasting in 3D.

3D Active Technology: When you put the 3D active glasses on and look at the compatible Samsung TV screen, this active 3D technology first blocks the left and then the right lens (faster than the blink of an eye, so you don't even notice), displaying the screen's images separately to each eye. This "staggered" effect provides far more lifelike 3D (three-dimensional) images, than previous technologies.

Bluetooth Technology: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses use Bluetooth (2.4GHz RF band) to receive a video signal from your compatible Samsung 3D-ready TV.

Note: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses will need to be initially paired to your compatible Samsung 3D-ready TV.

Compatibility: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) are compatible with 2011-up Samsung 3D-ready HDTVs. You must also have a 3D-ready Blu-ray player with 3D content, or a satellite/cable provider broadcasting in 3D.

  • LED TV: D6400 series and above.
  • Plasma: D490, 550 series and above

Note: Not compatible with previous Samsung TV's which featured a 3D Sync IR output, or 2010 Samsung 3D-ready TVs with IR emitter.

Flexible Fit: Samsung's 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) offer even greater comfort for hours of viewing. The Samsung SSG-3700CR employs a Silhouette flexible, lightweight frame for maximum comfort and a customized fit.

Note: The SSG-3700CR is designed to fit almost any face sizes and will fit over prescription glasses.. The ear-pieces do not fold.

Operating Range: The Samsung's 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) provide a viewing range between 6.6' and 19.68' from your compatible Samsung 3D-ready TV. A rubber shield is included to block out overhead lighting.

Note: If the 3D glasses move outside of the recommended operating distance, the signal from the TV will be disconnected and the display of the 3D glasses will turn off after several seconds. If you lie on  your side while watch TV with 3D glasses, the picture may look dark or may not be visible. When viewing 3D video under fluorescent lighting (50-60Hz), you may notice a small amount of screen flickering.

RX Ready: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) have been designed to fit those who need prescription lenses. Viewers who require corrective lenses can now order prescription lenses that clip on to the frames of the SSG-3700CR. Visit www.samsung.com for further details regarding prescription lens.

Auto Off:  The Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) automatically detect usage and switch On or Off. The 3D glasses will automatically power off approximately 3 minutes after your TV turns off.

Rechargeable Battery: The Samsung 3D Active Glasses are equipped with an integrated rechargeable lithium battery (3.7V/1.5ma). The battery has an approximate operating time of 40 hours.

  • USB Cable: The 3D Active Glasses come with a 5' micro-USB to USB cable to charge the SSG-3700CR's integrated battery, when connected to your computer.
  • Wireless Charge Ready: You can also imply place the Samsung 3D Active Glasses (SSG-3700CR) on the optional Samsung wireless charger (305SWC1000, sold separately).

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With free delivery, Crutchfield's price is excellent, better than other prices I've seen. Shipping was prompt, and the item was well packed. This is my second pair of 3D glasses, and they work well with my 2011 Sanyo plasma HDTV.

The best and lightest 3D glasses ever. Plus, they have bluetooth technology.
