Disclaimer: I received Bose Frames in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
As someone who is on-the-go often, I tend to utilize my headphones a lot. When getting in a run, when traveling, and when walking to a local destination. Bose Frames have been a game-changer for me and my husband. A stylish and innovative gift idea.
Bose Frames | Sunglasses For On-The-Go
If you’re a runner like my husband and me, you probably understand the need to be alert while out on the street. You love enjoying your running tunes but always keep that one headphone out in order to be aware of what is going on around you.
When we received our Bose Alto Large sunglasses, we were instantly blown away and could envision going for a run with these.
The custom-designed speaker in conjunction with a series of patented acoustic chambers and ports steers the audio into the listener’s ears from the temples of the glasses. We were able to get that full surround sound but still be alert enough to hear when someone or something became close thanks to the open-ear audio design.
The sound alone is incredible. You wouldn’t believe it by the size of the sunglasses but the speaker puts out crystal clear sound.
It literally feels like you’re in a room filled with music. Even at louder volumes, I could only hear a little bit coming from my husband’s frames. Enough to know he was listening to music but not disturb me.
A New Type of AR Experience
Speaking of the sound, these frames are equipped with Bose AR. This means you can augment your world via sound instead of what you see.
My husband and son both played a game via a separate app where they had to listen for where they needed to swing to make contact. It was a really cool new experience for them that involved using a different sense. A nice change to staring at a screen.
While wearing these frames on-the-go you can also easily take calls and access assistance such as Google or Siri. Using one-button control you can utilize these features, pause, stop, and skip songs too.
The built-in microphone makes for clear calls. I couldn’t tell the difference when I called my husband while he was sporting his Bose Frames. The quality of the call was just as clear as to when he is on his phone.
Comfortable and Stylish Frames
The frames are very comfortable and created for all-day wear. You can also select three timeless styles enriched with premium accents and materials, like gold-plated hinges. Alto offers a classic angular look with a Larger and Small size fit available, while Rondo is more distinct with rounded lenses and a smaller fit.
Bose Frames block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays and offer shatter and scratch-resistant lenses to survive the on-the-go lifestyle. Even with the built-in speaker, they still look sleek and fashionable. The frames do not look overly large.
If you’re ready to upgrade your listening experience or know someone who loves these kinds of gadgets for a gift idea, Bose Frames can be found at Best Buy.
Get ready to be blown away by the sound from such fashionable wear. I think my husband will be hanging up his headphones for these and so will I.
