The first audio sunglasses with built-in Bose speakers for an immersive audio experience and AR. Say what?!
Meet Bose Frames…the Bose Alto and Bose Rando Frames! Sunglasses with a Soundtrack. A revolutionary personal audio experience hidden inside two classic designs, each enriched with premium accents and materials. Play music, take calls, and enjoy the sun with UVA/UVB protection.
I think its pretty amazing technology to be able to listen to music (and audio in general) through your sunglasses!
The sunglasses are enhanced with Bose sound – Bose Frames Alto feature a classic angular shape, commanding lenses with a larger fit and immersive sound. And nothing in or on your ears – it's a completely new way to listen, and it's impressive. You can stay connected to the world around you while discreetly listening to music with a revolutionary open-ear audio design.
Bose Frames come with patented acoustic chambers and the premium lenses are designed for sun and sound. There's also a built-in microphone that makes and takes clear phone calls, you can access Siri and your Google Assistant with the seamlessly integrated microphone.
The Bose Frames as also uniformly tinted to block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays. They are also shatter- and scratch-resistant lenses designed to survive life on the go. There's also one-button control to power on and off, accept and reject calls, play and pause music, and access Siri or Google Assistant. That is SO cool!
Bose Frames is a line of stylish, audio sunglasses that deliver a truly remarkable personal audio experience without anything in or on the ears. Frames feature technology that prevents sound from being heard by people nearby. You can choose from two timeless styles enriched with premium accents and materials, like gold-plated hinges. Alto offers a classic angular look with larger fit, while the Bose Rondo is more distinct with rounded lenses and a smaller fit. Frames are comfortable for all-day wear. In fact, many people wear glasses all day long—most don’t even know they are there. The product’s form factor enables you to remain socially available to others, unlike headphones which send a “I’m listening to music, don’t bother me” message.
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.
And new technology must also be smart, and the Bose Frames offers one app with complete control. The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock Bose AR, and personalize your settings so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up. Available on iOS and Android.
And the coolest feature of them all — Bose AR enabled*. A first-of-its-kind audio augmented reality platform that makes astonishing new audio experiences possible. Combining the power of wearable audio products, mobile devices, and integrated apps, Bose AR can augment your world with content for your ears instead of your eyes.
