Bose Sunglasses With a Soundtrack!
Talk about sunglasses with a soundtrack! The Bose Alto and the Bose Rondo Frames are the first audio sunglasses with built-in Bose speakers for an immersive audio experience that is unlike any other. And it doesn’t hurt that they look cool, right? This is, of course, a revolutionary personal audio experience – which you can expect from Bose. This amazing audio experience is hidden inside two classic designs – each enriched with premium accents and materials.
Favorite Product Specs:
- The Bose Alto frames feature a classic angular shape, commanding lenses with a larger fit and immersive sound. The Lens Width is 52mm, the Bridge Width is 18mm, and the Temple Length is 162mm.
I love that there’s nothing that goes in or on your ears. It’s a totally new way to listen. You can stay connected to the world around you while discreetly listening to music with a revolutionary open-ear audio design.
Bose sunglasses have frames with patented acoustic chambers, and the lenses are designed for sun and sound.
There’s a built-in microphone. You can make and take clear phone calls, and access Siri and your Google Assistant with the seamlessly integrated microphone.
The Bose sunglasses are uniformly tinted! Their frames block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays.
They’re also shatter and scratch-resistant lens that are designed to survive life on the go.
These are the Bose Alto frames:
These are the Bose Rondo frames:
- There’s one-button control so you can power them on and off, accept and reject calls, play and pause music, and access Siri or Google Assistant.
The metal hinges are stainless steel and finished in gold. Nylon rims are scratch-resistant and subtly transparent.
Bose Sunglasses are AR enabled*. This is 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.
Lastly, one app gives you complete control – the Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. You can get tips, unlock Bose AR, and personalize your settings so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up!
It’s available on iOS and Android!
I think what’s truly amazing is that the audio sound is incredibly rich for the user, but very little of it can be heard by anyone else around you. It is SO cool. Also, Bose Alto offers a classic angular look with a larger fit, and Rondo is more distinct with rounded lenses and a smaller fit. My last minute takes on these Bose sunglasses are that they look cool, sound cool, do cool things, and provide very little – if any – bother or even notice by anyone else around you. I’m totally in love.
