I heven't had a pair since i was a kid and don't have a clue where to start.

1. Are there any binos that better with glasses?

2. How much did you pay for a decent set.

3. What's the difference in a $50 dollar set and $300

I am looking to spend around $50. If i can get a decent set.

I don't know what you are going to find in the sub $100 range, to be honest. I did find this site for you: http://www.telescope.com/Binoculars/Great-Binoculars-Under-100/pc/5/76.uts

That being said, for $149, you can pick up the lowest end Vortex which, based on what I have seen, are probably the highest quality as you are going to get for the money: http://www.academy.com/webapp/wcs/stores...CFTFk7AodwyMAbQ

Ok, I see different pairs for $20-50 at discount stores wal-mart etc. I am guessing they are not good?

I have always had cheap bushnell thought they were good enough but one time I was at Cades Cove right at dark, seen 2 big bucks but with my bushnell couldn't see them very good a guy pulled up and had a pair of leopold and it was as different as night and day could see the deer perfect.

you get what you pay for in optics for the most part. Nikons(and some others) have adjustable eyecups to accommodate glasses.

x2 with optics I always say buy the best you can afford there is a huge difference between a 50 dollar pair and a 300 dollar pair. for one the 50 dollar pair for the most part is not going to be put together that well they will break much easier then a 300 dollar pair. the glass is the biggest thing. night and day difference between a cheap tasco pair or something along those lines compared to my leupold majoves. I would recommend going ahead and buy a quality pair instead of buy a cheap pair. I know for me atleast binos are very important in the way I hunt. if you go to bass pro and just compare them in the store you will see but you will really see the difference in the field right at first or last light.

Great input now i can understand. I dont know about all of you but i need to understand an item before i can justify paying more for it. After Deerhunter10 explained I get it. I seen a pair of Nikons on the page that Poser linked for $149 that I liked.

http://www.opticsplanet.com/nikon-8x40-action-extreme-binoculars-7238.html

Anyone have any experience with these?

I have a pair of leupold Yosemite that are pretty dang clear. I don't know about the Nikon action but I'm sure they are great quality.
