"Exclusive eyewear designed to deliver immersive interdimensional reality. The wavelength trigger is a little finicky – I’ve still gotta figure out how to automatically tune to the frequencies of different Earths so I can take full advantage of my vibrational abilities. With these bad boys, I can see into the past, present, and future! Lightweight yet durable, these goggles come with an adjustable strap, mirror lenses, and sculpted marshmallow foam that fits naturally to the contours of my face, making them as comfortable as they are badass!"
Cisco Ramon[src]


The Reverb glasses are a special pair of goggles created by Francisco Ramon. They were used in his activities as the meta-human criminal "Reverb" until his death. After his death, his Earth-1 counterpart started using them. The goggles help Cisco's conduit of dimensional energies, allowing him to manipulate them with ease for different purposes, such as the creation of breaches between parallel universes. While in the goggles, Reverb appeared to be able to produce a weaponized form of "vibing" power, which Cisco also managed to perform during his confrontation with the Black Siren.

History

Reverb

Reverb wearing the glasses

Francisco Ramon presumably created the glasses sometime before he joined Zoom.

He wore the glasses throughout his life of crime while working with Zoom, Killer Frost, Deathstorm, and Black Siren. They helped him look into different universes.

After Zoom killed Reverb, his Earth-1 doppelgänger, Vibe, acquired his goggles and brought them to Earth-1 to solve the problem of vibing when in different universes.[1] Harry Wells later re-calibrated Reverb's goggles, adjusting them to the frequency of Cisco's Earth and thus allowing Cisco to channel trans-dimensional energy and open breaches between different universes.

They were later added to the Vibe suit along with a pair of gauntlets.

The glasses, along with the rest of Cisco's suit, were destroyed when he faked his death while fighting Cicada.[2]

It's implied that Cisco later rebuilt the glasses, presumably with all of the same capabilities they had previously, as he was seen wearing them, along with a suit identical to the one that'd been destroyed in his confrontation with Cicada, when he, Barry, Nora, Ralph, and Caitlin confronted Icicle.[3]

Trivia

  • Vibe's glasses on Earth-1 glowed green lights at the lenses, while on Earth-2 the glasses belonging to Reverb glowed blue at the lenses. This was revealed to be due to the different frequencies between the two Earths, making the color and power enhancements different. However, after getting Reverb's updated version of the glasses, Cisco's goggles have been glowing blue ever since.
