Bose Introduces Sunglasses With Speakers: BOSE Frames

Bose Introduces Sunglasses With Speakers: BOSE Frames 1Bose, the iconic headphones and speakers company, has a new product: BOSE Frames. These ingenious devices look and function like ordinary sunglasses, but they have tiny speakers hidden in the temples that play music. The sunglasses have a unique retro look that was originally popularized by musicians and disc jockeys, and this fits with the musical theme of this wearable device.

Notable features

The BOSE frames* have a patented acoustic chamber feature, which allows the wearer to listen to music without people near them hearing it. They also are excellent at protecting against bright light, and Bose emphasizes that they are designed for “sight and sound.”

An open-ear design allows users to do anything they would do wearing conventional sunglasses while listening to music; there are no awkward or obtrusive speakers hanging off these wearables. These sunglasses are for people who are truly connected; an on/off button allows the user to accept or reject phone calls, play music, access Siri and more. Miniaturized speakers in the temples direct sound towareds the wearer and no one else.

The sunglasses use a Bluetooth connection to bring music and sound to the speakers. They can keep track of up to eight Bluetooth signals in their memory, and default to the signal most recently used unless directed otherwise. Because they connect with Bluetooth, users can access any app that is on their mobile device including music streaming services like Spotify, navigation apps such as Waze as well as any number of gaming, fitness or travel apps.

Typically, the battery will last through three and a half hours of headphone use before needing to be recharged. Bose offers both a quick start guide and a more comprehensive manual for users.
