Sunglasses have been getting a free ride on your ears and nose for long enough. Now with the Bose Wearables sunglasses, your shades will sing you a lullaby. Or scream death metal at you. Whichever you prefer. Containing a miniaturized Bose speaker in each arm, these Bluetooth-enabled glasses play whatever audio your device is outputting at the moment (and will also take calls and talk to Siri or Google Assistant).
Instead of a bud or an over ear option, the open ear design directs the sound at your ears, minimizing what others around you can hear, while still letting you get a handle on what’s going on in your world.
Possibly the best part is they don’t look like sci-fi monstrosities, the Rondo frame has a retro-cool flavor and the Alto frames are more angular and modern. Both frames are made from a semi-transparent black nylon and the lenses block 99% of UVA and UVB rays. With three and a half hours of continuous streaming and a 30-foot Bluetooth range, we see these working for bike commuting, contemplative walks around the neighborhood, and hammock swinging.
