How we test binoculars

In the lab Which? tests how clearly you can see through the binoculars, as well as shock and water resistance. We also have a team of expert, amateur and novice users who assess how easy the binoculars are to use. And not all of the binoculars we test make the grade.

  • We’ve found compact binoculars with very poor light transmission, leading to dark, dull images. Our Best Buy binoculars allow more light to reach your eyes, helping to produce a brighter image.
  • We’ve also found binoculars that produce double images, which is very frustrating for the user. Our Best Buys won’t cause you eye strain like inferior models can.
  • Tests are also carried out to make sure the binoculars we test can be used by people wearing glasses
