Features

3D Glasses: The Sony TDG-BT500A 3D Active Glasses give you the option to enjoy 3D (three-dimensional) pictures and graphics on your Sony 3D-ready HDTV. You can enjoy an immersive, realistic movie and gaming experience in Full HD 1080p from your Sony 3D-ready HDTV using the Sony 3D Active Glasses and an HDMI connected 3D source; such as a Satellite Receiver, Blu-ray Disc Player, or PlayStation gaming console (all sold separately).

TV Compatibility: The Sony TDG-BT500A 3D active glasses are compatible with select 2013-up Sony 3D-ready flat-panel televisions.

Active Shutter Technology: When using the active shutter glasses, the on-screen image is precisely synchronized and delivered with the full high-definition image intact, for an optimum 3D viewing experience. Sony's 3D technology displays high speed synchronized left- and right-eye images to deliver an amazing 3D experience. And since each frame you see is shown in high-definition, the 3D action still offers razor-sharp detail.

RF Frequency: The Sony TDG-BT500A receives its 3D active signal from your compatible Sony 3D-ready via RF (2.4GHz frequency).

Comfortable Fit: The Sony 3D active glasses offer a comfortable, lightweight fit; weighing only 1.27 oz. The ear-pieces are hinged so they can be easily folded and the glasses stored away.

Battery Power w/ Auto Turn-Off: The Sony 3D active glasses operate off a single CR2025 3V "coin-type" battery which can last up to 100 hours. The battery is replaceable, not rechargeable. The 3D glasses automatically turn off if there is no signal detected from the TV for more than 1 minute.

Q

A
there is no reason why they shouldn't. I have an XBR 65" 850a and they work great

HI..THIS WAS MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH THIS TV AND THESE GLASSES. MY SETUP MAN AND I TRIED THEM OUT TOGETHER AND WERE SPEECHLESS. THEY PROVIDE RICH SHARP COLOR AND SCENES WILL JUMP OUT AT YOU. YOU CANNOT FIND BETTER .

I don't know. I have Sony XBR65X850C. The glasses do work for this model.
[ MIGUEL A  Sep 18, 2015 ]  Staff

My Sony TV is KDL-70W830B I think the B on the end signifies bluetooth which all Sony 3d tv's from 2014 forward are. The glasses I bought and that you are looking at should work as they are all bluetooth.
[ Glenn  Sep 18, 2015 ]  Staff
A
they should, they work good on the samsung tv as well.
[ JAMES  Sep 18, 2015 ]  Staff
A
Nor sure of your model. We use this for KDL70W850B. They work good with this 3D Smart TV.
[ Herbert  Sep 18, 2015 ]  Staff
A
I have the 850c. So I can only tell u they work with That particular model
[ MICHAEL  Sep 18, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
It would work with Sony KDL50W800C 50-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model)??

Thank you guys. As soon as they arrive I will test them and give you updates. THank you for your answers :)
[ Lu T.  Jun 25, 2015 ]  Staff

Lu, I can only assume that they would work with your model TV. But I would probably call/contact Sony to make sure (that's what I did before I bought them). All I can tell you for sure is that the TDG-BT500A works with my Sony XBR-65X850A TV.
[ Chris  Jun 25, 2015 ]  Staff
A
These glasses work perfectly with our TV. If the TV has bluetooth for the glasses you will probably be okay. I struggled with finding just the right part number. Make SURE you are ordering the same part number as what came with the TV.
[ Glenn  Jun 25, 2015 ]  Staff
A
Yes it does. That is the same model TV I have. The only problem I had with the glasses was when it paired there is no on screen notice! Once I realized that they were great!
[ WILLIAM R  Jun 24, 2015 ]  Staff

I have a TDG-BT 400A, which is matched perfectly with our Sony Bravia 4k. You need to look on your manual for the EXACT model of 3d viewers that you need. If you don't have a manual go to the Sony website to get the 3d glasses number for your model.
