    The glasses are amazing, yeah we all know this, but what seperates them from the other shade companies is their phenomenal customer service team. Phong was amazing and helped me not only choose my shades but walked me through every step of the process. Thank you guys so much. You have maintained another customer for life.

    These glasses are really great! If you get the Gloss Black Electric Knoxville XL's and take these sunglasses to LensCrafters, they can put clear prescription lens in them and it works as hipster glasses, from the way these sunglasses are shaped with a wayfarer design. Makes being on stage more FUN! Here is a photo of what they look like without the dark tints, ready to get the Rx clear lens...

    Great freakin sunglasses. I switched from being a regular Ray Ban user to an avid Electric fan. Awesome quality all around. Best fit out there. I take them skiing, fishing, hiking, driving, and to all social events.

    Big shout out to the customer service as well. Quick response, awesome service, and a personal touch. Thanks for switching me over to the Light Side!

    I have been wearing my Knoxville sunglasses all over the world and get compliments on my green lenses but they were damaged by wear and tear. I wanted to replace them and customer service helped me get these bad boys in ohm chrome blue. No charge. They were under warranty. Thank you for your help and support. You guys rock! Kudos to Phong and the rest of the customer service department at Electric.

    I've been rockin' Electrics for quite a while now and the Knoxville XL is my fav pair of shades yet. The glasses are very high quality and Electric definitely stands by their product. Big shout out to Phong and the rest of the Customer Service Team as they were recently a big help and they provided me with nothing but first class professional service! Thanks!!!

    I am a huge fan of Electric Sunglasses. I own a pair of the Knoxville polarized glasses that are great for everything here in Virginia Beach, VA. My boys are a big part of the surfing community and wear nothing but Electric products. If I ever had an issue, the customer service department is first class.... especially Phong Nguyen. Phong has personally called me to help me with anything I need. Hats off to Phong and the entire Electric staff for a great product. Surfs up in Virginia Beach and we love you guys.

    I've been a long time customer of Electric Visual and have been wearing the Knoxville XL for a while. The lenses had a malfunction so sent them back to Electric seeking a replacement pair... The customer service team went above and beyond. It was super easy communicating with them and they have sent me a replacement pair without any hassle. I was already hooked on the brand but after this experience I will be a life-long customer.

    My OHM had a problem so I called Electric about it. Phong Nguyen in customer service was great about resolving the issue. I has no idea that electric sunglasses came with a lifetime warranty. I have several pairs of electrics and I like them all. I even buy them for my kids. My favorites are the Knoxville XL.

Their cool sleek..fit perfect on my face..I get compliments all the time..can't live without these glasses! I recently lost them at a crowded festival but will purchase the EXACT ones soon!

    Joel Harris helped me out with a new pair of Knoxville's. I get compliments all the time on the polarized colored lens with my current green lens pair, and can't wait to get the blue ones. Joel was super courteous and knew exactly how to help. I'd recommend anyone to Joel and the wonderful service at Electric. Will most definitely shop at Electric for my future sunglass purchases because of people like Joel. He's an asset, and hope he gets recognized in some way. Not to mention, the sunglasses are top notch.

    Just pick these bad boys up from my local surf shop, they are amazing. They are light weight, sexy, and protect my eyes from the sun. Thank you so much Electric for yet another awesome pair of sunglasses!

  • Review by Brent (USA)

    June 13, 2013

    So I just picked up a pair of these today. I'm a pilot so polarized sunglasses won't work for me when I'm flying. These things are amazing. Comfortable fit that doesn't interfere with my headset, lightweight design that doesn't feel like it's weighing my head down, and they are stylish. Most pilot's you see wear aviatiors, and I admit I have a pair myself, but these stand out and I love them.
