  1. Dave Miranda (verified owner)

    Took no time at all from ordering to delivery. Amazing clarity and worth every cent. A quality product. My old binoculars now relegated to the ute glove box.

  2. Ruth Battis (verified owner)

    Great looking binoculars with very clear viewing… way better than my old 8 x 40 pair.
    Highly recommended.

  3. Ray Bamforth (verified owner)

    Very nice Binoculars. easy to use and great image.. Only gripe is they will not fit in case when extended to suit my eyes…i have to alter every time I use them.

  4. Anne Hamilton (verified owner)

    By chance I came across an advert for these binoculars, was researching zoom cameras! Impressed by product reviews I purchased a pair. Wow, they are fantastic, not too heavy, weatherproof and well designed for holding and viewing for a lengthy period. Absolutely love the cover caps, and I can’t lose them now!

  5. Mark Pocklington (verified owner)

    Great. Love them. 😀

  6. Thomas

    Works well for me

  7. Rob Ketelaars

    I have had these binoculars now for about 2 years and waited to rate these on purpose to make absolutely sure it would be based on experience.
    I use them to watch bird life, wales and dolphins while camping on the beach and also for air shows. They are a good size. Not to large and not to small. The picture is Chrystal clear and OMG, when you get yourself a pair, check out the moon. Craters are clearly visible. Cannot fault them at all. If you only buy one pair of them in a lifetime, I highly recommend them.

  8. Ruth Moxon (verified owner)

    Exactly what I wanted and better quality than I expected…

  9. Chris Barrie

    I have used a range of binoculars in my career and afterwards. But I have these binoculars for my trip to South America and Antarctica in a few weeks. I am expecting them to be perfect for my adventures. So far I am impressed but the real trial comes soon.

  10. Suzi (verified owner)

    Love them, can’t wait to use them on a proper birding bush walk. Really quick delivery, didn’t think I would get them before Christmas but I got them just in time.

  11. Duncan (verified owner)

    Fantastic binoculars! Very comfortable to hold, and super clear vision. Great little Christmas gift! Very prompt delivery, thanks!

    Super! I could see the title of my over-the-road neighbour’s book, so great for spying if you’re that way inclined.

    Good service, good delivery, good product, very happy with my purchase

  15. Belinda Cohen (verified owner)

    I bought these because I had tried out a friend’s pair and I was so impressed by what I could see. I use them each week when I check on the flying foxes in a local colony. I can even see if they have been banded because they have been in care! Of course they get much more use watching birds and whales!

  16. Suzanne Dennehy (verified owner)

    Very sturdy product. Arrived promptly. Require a little more play time, as I have a little trouble with full vision, although I assume it is something I am doing incorrectly.

  17. Julie-Anne (verified owner)

    Thanks to all the positive reviews, I purchase my first pair of Avalon PRO binoculars.Just perfect to sit out on my verandah amongst the tree tops & view the bird life, great quality lens. 😀

  35. Janine Chandler

    Excellent field binoculars for our platypus survey at local rivers and wetlands. Great clear vision, steadiness and focus adjustment.
    In the sub-zero dawn, I appreciated the tethered covers and no fogging up. Very happy, thanks.

  36. Terry may (verified owner)

    Very good unit

  37. Peter Pappas (verified owner)

    A present for my wife to be used for whale watching. She was very happy with the binoculars. My wife wears glasses, but doesn’t need too wear them because off the quality glass and magnification. I definitely made the right choice selecting these binoculars, highly recommended.

  38. Graham Dunford (verified owner)

    Good value… not too bulky… arrived in time for the whale watching season

  39. Carol Smith (verified owner)

    Brought these for my husband for his birthday based on the reviews. I can say these are a great lightweight binocular with very clear picture. We can’t wait to use these when our horse starts racing…..yes, I will be stealing them off him or I may have to buy another set.

  40. peter (verified owner)

    These binoculars are fit for my purpose. As a novice bird watcher I am enjoying the life that these binoculars bring to the experience.
    Lightweight and easy to adjust enables you to follow the bird life more smoothly.
    Delivery advice and delivery lead time were very good.

  41. stu harding (verified owner)

    Great birthday present. Very easy to use. Very clear. Light and good fun. Good price. Good website. Well done folks!!

  42. Anthony Crolla

    Far exceeded my expectations. Excellent quality and really good service. Would recommend highly

  43. Buzz Evans

    I’ve been wanting a good pair of binoculars for some time . I am an avid birder and have several feeders in my back yard and every bird that is in our state come to our feeders . I can’t tell you how pleased I am when I decided to buy these . Perfect , couldn’t have ask for anything better. Thank you for making such a great product .

  44. Pat

    These were bought as a gift for a birthday next month. They certainly look good to me but won’t know for sure until they are in use by the intended recipient. Hoping for the best & given full marks!!

  45. Gerry Harper

    Yet to be used ‘in the field. Impressive when trying them in my garden. although I keep forgetting to wind out the eye viewers. An excellent mid-price range of binoculars.

  46. ken Nicholson (verified owner)

    problem with eye cup but quickly replaced with new pair within 4 days very happy with
    the binoculars all good

  47. Bethan

    These are binoculars of exceptional quality for a very reasonable price. I have also been extremely happy with the customer service of Avalon Optics. Thank you!

  48. Brian Speers

    Excellent binoculars. They were a present off my wife and I am enjoying using them very much. They are so clear and a good size. They are a good weight, not too heavy and it’s easy enough to carry them around my neck.

  49. Stephen Orr (verified owner)

    Bought as a gift and recipient is extremely happy with them. Great size for birdwatching .

  50. Joanne Stawinoga

    better than I expected. Had a pair of 12 x 25 Tasco and just couldn’t seem to get them adusted right . probably operator error. but these Avalon are super easy to use and much brighter image , Really happy with them.

  51. David

    Wanted to buy a decent pair of binoculars for a safari trip to South Africa, did a lot of research and finally settled on these. We were not disappointed. Prompt delivery and well packed. These are the first binoculars I have used that give me a razor sharp single image whilst wearing my glasses, had no problems adjusting or focusing them. Took them to our local RSPB reserve for a trial run and both my wife and I were extremely impressed with how well they performed. Well worth the money.

  52. Richard Newman (verified owner)

    These are the first binoculars I’ve ever bought. I’ve got them to look at the birds that frequent our back garden as we have a huge jacaranda and a couple of other smaller trees and an orange tree. We’ve just had a new rear deck built with a roof and it’s great to sit outside and enjoy an uninterrupted view, as we have the agricultural section of a high school at the bottom of the yard and then a park beyond that. The binoculars allow us a better, closer look at the birds which come to perch in the trees. I picked this particular pair after reading several reviews of different brands. The only disappointment is that the instruction leaflet is obviously a generic one and not a specific one for this particular model. Otherwise, so far…a week…they appear to fulfil expectations.

  53. Deborah Beck

    Have just returned from Costa Rica where I tested my new binoculars. They are fab so pleased with them was able to see high up in to the rainforest and view beautiful birds.

  54. Nicola (verified owner)

    Bought them as a gift, they have been perfect. Great communication in the delivery process and fast as well even tho it was to NZ.

  55. carolyn day

    light easy to use excellent magnification

  56. Phil Bell

    Compact and lightweight pair of quality binoculars with sharp powerful lenses . Very well made and well worth the money at that price .

  57. Noel Bell

    Bought these for my own general use. I find them very comfortable and easy to hold and manipulate. The image clarity is excellent as is the brightness.

  58. Stephen Dixon (verified owner)

    These binoculars have proven to be very good for the price. I have not used them extensively yet, but in the short time I’ve had them they have been very useful.

  59. Julie Coombes

    Excellent binoculars for the price. Easy to use straight out of the box. Crystal-clear view and lightweight to carry. Ordered and received promptly. RECOMMENDED PURCHASE.

  60. Bill Wilson (verified owner)

    Wanted these for my wife’s birthday. She is a keen bird-watcher.
    Clarity is great and the compact lightness enables steady viewing. We have had other binoculars but find the Avalon 10×42 binoculars to be ideal for bird-watching and all round viewing. My wife is “wrapped” with my gift.

  61. John March

    I purchased these binoculars as a present for my granddaughter. I am very pleased with them and my granddaughter is also. She wanted them for bird watching and for star gazing. So far she has not been able to use them for the stars but has found them to be fine for bird watching. I was keen to find a pair of binoculars to cover both subjects at a reasonable weight. I am confident they will prove to be fine for both her needs once the weather allows good clear night skies.

  62. Philip

    I am very pleased with the binoculars – great focus, well made and very neat. Impressed with the strap and general quality thank you

  63. Ray Reynolds

    Very pleased, excellent value, why spend hundreds when you get binoculars like these, prompt well organised delivery also

  64. Lawrie (verified owner)

    Happy with these bino’s , clarity of lenses is up there with more expensive brands, focus ring is smooth and precise, eye cups work great with or without glasses on. All round really good quality at a fair price.

  65. Gill Moody

    Great pair of binoculars at a great price. Easy to use and lightweight they will be great for taking on walks and bird spotting. Customer service was outstanding too – first pair to arrive were faulty and following emails/messaging to Avalon, within 24 hours a new pair were winging their way to me. Cannot fault this response.

  66. Tom M

    Exactly as described, cant fault them in any way !

  67. Tim Colgate

    Haven’t had a real opportunity to use them fully since they arrived. However, they arrived the day after I ordered them and setting up was fairly easy – I did use YouTube – and the initial viewing from my house appears to be clear and the the optics crisp. They appear to be a great purchase. Thank you Avalon, your explanation of the different types of binoculars enabled me to make this purchase. Really impressed

  68. John Cartwright

    Great binoculars at a great price. Perfect for watching wildlife, good clear vision, brilliant for the price

  69. Dave Weaving

    At this price I was more than happy. They are relatively light , well made and the view through them is clear and precise. I am more than happy with them.

  70. Albert Cheong (verified owner)

    Not too large, lightweight, and I find it small enough to carry in my small backpack without compromising the space in the pack for other things, clarity is very good compared to other binoculars that I had.

  71. Betty Morrison (verified owner)

    Thank you for prompt delivery. The clarity of these binoculars is a little disappointing compared to my previous pair which were stolen, For the price they are satisfactory.

  72. Martin

    Great quality binoculars at a very competitive price. Light weight and comfortable to use., and easy to set diopter focus. Rapid delivery.
    Easy to focus, and will focus down to about 10 feet, which is helpful in the garden.
    Feel very solid and well made. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others.

  73. Martin Canton

    Great price for the quality of these binoculars. Delivery was very quick, and instructions more than adequate. Setting up focus was very straightforward, and they are light and comfortable in use. I have only used budget binoculars previously, and was amazed at the clarity of the image. I was also pleased that they focus down to about 10 feet, which is helpful for watching birds in the garden.
    Overall these binoculars are excellent value for money, and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

  74. max ketchin

    It’s a long time since I’ve had binoculars and I was looking for a pair to use for bird spotting in and around my garden. These binoculars are perfect, they are a great size and have brilliant optics. They are very clear and although i have a slight problem with one of my eyes they are easy to set up to obtain clear vision all the time. The pop out eye cups are great and save messy marks on the viewing lenses. I would recommend these binoculars very highly indeed

  75. glenys santer

    i needed new binoculars as i now wear glasses and this was difficult with my old bins. the difference is fantastic, nice and light good clarity especially when the light is not good.value for money.

  76. J. Robinson

    Very pleased with the Binoculars. Not yet field tested but I’m sure they will be just fine going on the results of using them around the garden. Very clear and sharp images

  77. Derek J. Wood

    Really decent binoculars for the price. Like a lot of Ornithologists I always went for names like Kowa and Opticron. Both made in Japan. Avalon have all the accessories you expect to find on more pricey binoculars. I like the soft feel, the thumb grips, the attached lens caps ( which can be replaced if lost) and really good quality carrying strap. My only gripe is the centre focus wheel has too much travel before you get sharp images of woodland birds. Time you get it in focus it usually has flown off! Would like to know more about the company and where they are made etc. I am convinced in the near future Avalon will be as widely known as Leica or Zeiss.

  78. Alan Conner

    Ok but clear markings for chosen diopter and inter eye settings would be helpful. Perhaps I should have tried other makes in stores first

  79. Frank Agosto

    I chose Avalon binoculars to replace a pair of other branded bin’s stolen from my car. First impressions are favourable and the general ease of use and accurate adjustments appear far superior to previous binoculars I’ve owned.

  80. patricia hurley

    Excellent customer service! One of the extending eye pieces did not stay in position when pulled out. I emailed Avalonoptics on Monday; a new replacement pair arrived Tuesday!

  81. Thiago Kathirasoo

    I had grown used to my old Swift Trilytes and was not expecting the Avalon 10×42 Pro HD to impress me but the image quality is very good and particularly so in low light conditions. Highly recommended

  82. Robeena

    Bought them for birdwatching and although I haven’t had a chance to try them out on an outing yet, I have been able to test them out on the trees around my home and I can say that they are easy to handle and once you adjust the settings, the views are crisp and clear.

  83. Dan (verified owner)

    Great value for these compact and clear binoculars. Easy to adjust and ideal for my line of work (horse trainer), even in the dark.

  84. Rex Dale (verified owner)

    Very happy with purchase.Used yesterday at Ironman event in Torquay Vic. Very clear at 4oo to 500 metres out to sea.
    Very clear image and easy to use.Might have to buy another pair as a gift for my daughter.

  85. Kellen Ronnau

    The price is considerably less then the brand names so I was skeptical of the claims made by the company. We just want to be able to watch the duck on our pond and do a little bird watching. The binoculars are great with clear views and excellent details. They are light weight and easy to use. The carrying case and strap are a little cheap but they work well. Even if I lose them I can buy another pair and still be less cost than the competition. I would recommend them to anyone who wants binoculars but is not a fanatic. For the average user these are much more affordable and work well.

  86. Kathrin Asto (verified owner)

    As expected, the lenses and the binocular itself are of excellent quality.
    It was a Christmas present for my husband, he is very happy.
    Service and delivery was excellent too!

  87. EC

    Clear vision field, excellent for scouring mountains in search for wandering sheep.

  88. Alexander Brymer

    Now that Christmas has passed I have tried out my 1st pair of binoculars and i am very happy with my purchase they are very easy to use and the sharpness of what I have seen so far is absolutely fantastic definitely money well spent thanks

  89. John Jerwood

    Fast delivery and very pleased with the binoculars. They are light, easy to adjust and provide a clear image when observing birds and other wildlife. Good value.

  90. Emma

    Very impressed, bought for a Christmas present so have just tried them out. They are weighty but not too heavy. Feel good quality. Very happy with the magnification. As for delivery, couldn’t fault it at all. Overall, very happy and will recommend.

  91. Christine Straker

    Lovely binoculars, great Christmas present for my husband.

  92. Lewis Taylor

    Excellent quality optics. Good clear field of view, easily adjusted, lightweight and amazing value. Spent a long time researching and eventually settled on these for quality and value. Not regretted it.

    give avalon 10 out of 10 for these 10×42 value for money as i live by the sea a lot of ships on the horizon as blips made me smile can see the light on the vessel now these are easy to use and are well worth the money

  100. Rob Fischer (verified owner)

    My daughter is using my pair of 10×42 binoculars for her PhD on birds in the Darwin area. Since she likes them so much I decided a pair for herself might be a good idea and I can reclaim mine. A good x-mas present

  101. Dorothy Pratt (verified owner)

    Had various new pairs of binoculars both cheap and expensive over the years due to bu,ping, dropping and loss. Tried other binoculars before choosing these. Clarity is brilliant and great over long distances. Easily adjustable between my husbands long sightedness and my short sightedness. Comfortable feel in the hands, light to carry .
    Meet our needs perfectly ?????

  102. G Wilson (verified owner)

    Tried the new binoculars on our property and they are very good. Able to identify livestock and wildlife from great distances. Better than the cheap pair that we use to have. (until they broke) New pair smaller and easier to carry around.

  103. Pat

    Amazing. So clear and with the neck strap, perfect

  104. Graeme Waters (verified owner)

    Ideal for bird watching. Compact for storage in car

  105. Bob Lowth (verified owner)

    Fantastic binoculars – used a friends in South Africa on safari for 11 days – so lightweight, easy to focus, strong & waterproof … certainly brought all the birds, animals (the BIG 4 & many many more), insects and scenery into awesome sharp focus. Loved them so much, on return to Australia, ordered my own pair Immediately. Very happy – have retired my bigger, heavier & cumbersome Pentax 12×50 5.6 XCF.

  106. Colin Gimson

    Just tried these binoculars from my house but the clarity is brilliant. Very light compared to the ones i had and much sharper. First impressions suggest these are a really good buy. Looking forward to using them on my holidays.

  107. William Bruce Bartlett (verified owner)

    Tried them out this morning looking good and nice and light to carry

  110. Rod P. (verified owner)

    Used the binoculars on the weekend and found them to be very clear and easy to use and suited my purpose very well

  111. Greg

    Bought these to use on a safari. Had an old 8×40 bulky set from another brand which i didnt really care for and frankly never used. Now that i wear glasses i dont care for binoculars at all BUT these were really fantastic. The images were crystal clear and for safari biewing they were truly percect. A friend used them and bought a pair himself mid safari. Love them!

  112. Chris Manford (verified owner)

    These binoculars mostly met my expectations. They are lightweight and provide a clear, sharp image. However I was not able to use them effectively with glasses. I have had a pair of Carl Zeiss binoculars for bird watching for over 30 years and compared to them the Avalons are not as good. My wife couldn’t use them at all and has gone back to using the Zeiss binoculars. I have better luck with them and am happy to use them, so we now have a pair each.

  113. Ryan

    If you are like me, you are trawling the internet in search of an affordable pair of binoculars. I found this pair and read all the reviews on this website and on Procular and was so impressed I decided to purchase them. I cannot say how happy I am with the purchase! The image is crystal clear, they are so easy to use and can be used from a distance of 3m. They are really a great pair of binoculars. The low price is just a bonus.


    I bought them as a gift for my sister and she is into bird watching. She told me they were great and how all the colors just come alive. She was very happy to have got them and said she would tell fellow birders about how wonderful they are. Thank you so much for such a great product and a great gift for her. Terie Scott

    Easy to order. Fast delivery.
    Binoculars are very impressive. Nice size and weight with excellent optics.
    Highly recommended.

  117. Jim Murray (verified owner)

    I found that these binoculars ticked all the boxes for me in respect of being a good price, fairly lightweight and a compact sized unit. The lenses themselves have, on early testing, provided really great sharp images. My intention is to use them for wildlife spotting and landscapes. I feel sure that these binoculars will do an excellent job, so I am well satisfied. Thanks Avalon for mailing them promptly, and giving excellent service all round.

  118. John (verified owner)

    Great around Binoculars at a very reasonable price. Have used then in Ireland over past month for bird watching and general viewing and happy with results. Recommended as great alround binoculars.

  119. Gail (verified owner)

    I haven’t really used them yet. We are off to Africa soon, so time will tell. The focus isn’t terribly easy in my backyard. They are a bit weighty and large so I hope they will be ok.

  120. Britt (verified owner)

    Great, especially for the price! They are bright and clear, if a little blurry at further focus levels. An awesome edition to my birding gear, and I am very much looking forward to taking them on bush walks and holidays.

  121. Diego (verified owner)

    I bought the Mini HD first, and within a week my wife had basically claimed them as their own. So I got the Pro HD shortly after, and I couldn’t be happier. They’re both great for whale watching, boat watching in the harbor, and even full moon watching. The Pro HD are still light enough to held with one hand, although my wife prefers the Mini HD, and she doesn’t mind giving up the 2X difference.

  122. Bridget O’Connor

    My first new pair of binoculars after having hand me downs for 20 years.
    Needless to say I wish I had done this years before.
    Great binoculars clear and sharp for my deck bird watching.
    Terrific delivery.

  123. Tim (verified owner)

    These binoculars are excellent. Very sharp and clear.

  124. Craig (verified owner)

    Overall, I am very satisfied with these binoculars.

    The optical image is bright and sharp – which is clearly the key starting point. I tested them against my Tasco 10×50 Porro Prism binos (admittedly now 20 years old but in excellent condition) and these are brighter despite the smaller objective lens. They are light weight and reasonably compact, given the image quality and magnification. The attached objective lens caps work well. The eye piece caps a little less so for me, as I use a tripod adaptor for carrying, rather than a strap (which the cap is designed to hang off). The materials make it very grippy, which will be good in adverse weather. The focus adjustment requires quite a bit of turn to go from close distance to far, but the plus side is it offers excellent fine-tuning focus adjustment. I did not measure if the 3m minimum focus distance is completely accurate, but I can confirm that it does focus quite close (especially compared to my 10×50).

    On the slightly negative side:one of the twisting eye cups is too stiff to get to the most outward position. Additionally, it can also be a little difficult to get the eye accurately aligned for a completely clear image – it seems to need to be very precisely in position. Perhaps this will just be a case of getting used to the new ergonomics.

  125. Steve (verified owner)

    Haven’t used these for their intended purpose yet at the MotoGP later in the year but there’s no reason to doubt they’ll be anything other than perfect! Wandering around Phillip Island means you’re likely to see the best and worst of the weather so we needed binoculars to cope. All the reviews suggested we couldn’t go wrong with these.
    The whole process from purchase to receipt was easy and well managed and the discounted price sealed the deal. Very happy. Thank you!

    The binoculars are fantastic! They are well built and have a sharp bright image. Great value for money. I would also compliment Avalon on the fast efficient delivery and effective communication.

    I ordered a pair of Avalon 10×42 PRO HD binoculars over the Easter long weekend and received them a couple of days later. The website information, ordering process and delivery speed is very impressive!
    I tested the binoculars out in the back yard and found setting it up very easy. The clarity, depth of field and ease of use is already impressive! The weight is also light considering how powerful these binoculars seem and my eyes felt very comfortable. The size is also comfortable and easy to handle. The carry bag is a handsome and compact although side pockets might be a useful addition to future versions.

    These are my first ever pair of binoculars and I am very much looking forward to exploring the world around me with them!
    Thank you, Avalon Optics, for such a great, easy to use product – and a very affordable price!

    I have only used these new binoculars for NASCAR and they were perfect for that. I purchased them for my wife for our safari because the are smaller and lighter than the pair I own. We may have to trade off with this pair since they were so good.

    I could be a bit biased having only owned horse racing kind of binoculars but I’m very happy with that new pair that I had for 3 months. Really good and sharp viewing. Looking forward to my holidays in West Canada in a couple of months..

    The first pair of binoculars I have actually been able to see birds while wearing my glasses. These are perfect . Thank you.

    Used them today to watch Little Athletics and I could identify my grandkids on the other side of the oval who were not recognisable to the naked eye. Exactly what I wanted them for. Very happy

    The delivery of my binoculars was communicated extremely well and arrived very quickly. They are as advertised, clear and sharp! Could not be happier ???

    Love these. Perfect for bird watching. Perfect size. Easy to use. Easy to carry.

    Love the binoculars. They cover all that I want them to do and are so easy to use. Very impressed with the updates on exactly where the package was in its travels and final notification that they had been delivered. Thank you for a great product and excellent service.

    More than adequate for primary use which is bird finding. Compact and light.

    We are yet to use these for holiday purposes, but we have tried them out at home and they are easy to use with good vision. Lightweight, which will be good for our purposes. Excellent delivery times. We are actually planning on buying a second pair, so that we don’t have to share!

    I purchased these as my first own pair for bird watching, after always borrowing binoculars from much more experienced twitchers. They are perfect – extremely light weight and so compact that I carry them with me in my handbag in my day-to-day. They provide an exquisitely clear view. They arrived quickly and beautifully packaged, were easy to ‘set up’ and the carry bag has a very convenient belt loop. All of this for an excellent price.
