Still, might be something to consider, for folks who already have the card slot adapter (which is of course required).

    I had those, they worked poorly. Found the ASUS glasses and those work pretty near close to the SEGA originals.

    Sorry to hear that. I'm seriously tempted to just hack together new arms (or equivalent) for my Sega 3-D glasses, myself (having already mended/rebuilt one broken arm with a little ABS plastic carving). I've got a fairly large head for an adult man, and there's only so long I can wear them. I feel like maybe replacing the arms with just a hinge pipe + strap would be the best approach.

    So I did end up acting upon the issue of the excessive tightness of the arms of the OEM glasses. My solution worked out ideally, and yet was utterly simplistic. I simply (whilst listening to an audiobook) for about 25 minutes non-stop, exerted pressure at points along the arms of the glasses, slowly working across each arm's entire length time and again and again, decreasing their curvature by the tiniest of margins with each sequence of presses/massages, until they approached straightness, and placed essentially no pressure on my head. There is no evidence of structural damage to the plastic, and the (almost absent) curvature looks entirely "natural". Because with the arms nearly straight, the glasses can no longer "fold" beneath one another (they're too "long", when straight), I also took the measure of shortening each arm by about 5mm, with some snippers and a dremel. I don't feel bad about physically modifying these glasses, as they were already "damaged" when I acquired them (one arm broken), and one hinge is already my own transplant. So it's not as if a perfect condition item is being robbed of that status.
