Bose Frames audio sunglasses have been on my radar for a while now. I had to get them. Listening to music just got better…and fashionable Forget the headphones, These new Bose Frames are sunglasses with speakers/audio built-into the frame. Bose Frames is a line of stylish, audio sunglasses that deliver a truly remarkable personal audio experience without anything in or on the ears.
Unlike existing open-ear products that use bone conduction, Bose Frames use a custom-designed speaker in conjunction with a series of patented acoustic chambers and ports to steer audio into the listener’s ears from the temples of the glasses. The overall result is unbelievable audio clarity and spaciousness that seems almost impossible given the product’s size. What’s really mind-blowing is how full and rich the audio can sound for the wearer, but how little of that can be heard by anyone else, even if they’re standing next to the wearer.
Why Choose Bose Frames
Choose from two timeless styles enriched with premium accents and materials, like gold-plated hinges. The Bose Alto frame offers a classic angular look with a larger fit, while the Bose Rondo frame is more distinct with rounded lenses and a smaller fit. Frames feature technology that prevents sound from being heard by people nearby. Frames are comfortable for all-day wear. In fact, many people wear glasses all day long—most don’t even know they are there.

Where to Get the Bose Frames Audio Sunglasses
