There’s a better way to listen to your favorite music this summer. Forget about uncomfortable earbuds or bulky headphones. With the new Bose Frames Alto and Bose Frames RandoBose Frames Rando, you can listen to your favorite music while protecting your eyes from the sun’s rays. These Bose sunglasses have speakers built-into the frame and they not only sound amazing but look stylish too.
You will be surprised at the truly remarkable personal audio experience you get wit the Bose Frames, the best part is that you don’t need anything in or on the ears. 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.
You can choose from two timeless styles enriched with premium accents and materials, like gold-plated hinges. Alto offers a classic angular look with a larger fit, while Rondo is more distinct with rounded lenses and a smaller fit.
My favorite thing about the Bose Frames is that they feature technology that prevents sound from being heard by people nearby yet you are still available to others. Unlike headphones which send a “I’m listening to music, don’t bother me” message the Bose Frames let you listen to music while still being able to interact with those around you.
The frames are comfortable for all-day wear. In fact, many people wear glasses all day long—most don’t even know they are there.
