Bose Frames Sunglasses Have Tiny Speakers Built in

 |  |  |  December 6, 2018


Bose is showing off a new line of sunglasses with tiny speakers embedded in the arms. The idea is that people don’t have to wear earbuds or over-the-ear headphones to listen to their music or make a loud phone call. Oh, and they also protect your eyes from the sun as you would expect.

They look like a regular pair of sunglasses to everyone else. But to you, they are much more.  The glasses are available in two classic styles РAlto and Rondo. So they not only make you look cool, but they also offer a personal immersive audio experience.

The glasses come ready to work with Bose AR software through an upcoming software update. This technology works with your smartphone’s GPS to play contextual audio based on your location or your activities.

Sunglasses. With a soundtrack. Meet the new #BoseFrames. https://bose.life/2Az14De

Bose claims “You hear rich, immersive sound, while others hear practically nothing.” But I’m still concerned that the speakers are going to be more audible to others than headphones can be. Only time will tell how these sound and how much of your music other people will be able to hear when nearby.¬†Perhaps “AR” stands for the Annoying Reality that you will create for others.

If you’re interested in checking them out, Bose Frames sunglasses are available for pre-order now for $199.95, with shipping expected to start in January 2019.
