Decent but heavy due to magnets and Switch sunglass faceplate

Jins finally got 1 pair restocked so ordered it immediately.
It took ~>2 weeks for prep and delivery!

The eyeglasses fit but you'll need to adjust the nose clips for proper fit.
The frame temples (part that goes over the ears) are plastic with a little adjustment available. You can pull out 1/2 of the temples but can't really bend it for better fit.
You can manually adjust the nose pads for a better fit or bring it in to an optometrist office to hopefully get it adjusted for free.
The nose pads are made of hard plastic and should be replaced with a softer silicone version which generally offers better grip and doesn't dig into your nose bridge.

The front lenses section may be plastic but it's front Heavy because of the magnets on the sides. The Switch sunglass faceplate is slightly taller than the front lenses area and it's heavier when the faceplate is magnetized onto place. Because of the weight, it takes time for you to get used to it as it's uncomfortable.

Also, the Rx glasses supposedly include anti-glare coating so when you use the Switch face plate on front, you see the reflections bounced back at you around the lenses which is very disorienting!
It's very easy for the Switch faceplate to come off so you have to be Very Careful Not to brush against the lens or turn/tilt your head suddenly.

You will have to get used to the front heavy weight then the reflections when you use the Switch plate.

Overall, the eyeglasses fit my Asian face after adjusting the nose pad locations and some adjustment to the temple arms. It takes some time to get used to the weight bearing front when worn as regular eyeglasses and especially when the Switch faceplate is used.

The looks and concept are good but Jins should've designed it better by balancing out the weight through the temples, tested the lenses for reflection when the Switch faceplate is used and stop using the hard nose pads.

Lastly, Jins should import more (adjustable nose pad) frames from Japan with more metallic or rimless styles instead of just plastic frames.

Sometimes the disadvantage of purchasing online is that you have to rely on the description and photos of the glasses. The color was described as cool gray, unfortunately, in actuality it was white. Had I’d I known that, I would have selected another frame. Fit and finish appears excellent. The face plate stays in place but Be aware that it can easily be dislodged. I’m disappointed after spending $250 and not receiving what I was expecting.
