Meet Bose Frames, the first audio sunglasses from Bose. Miniaturized Bose electronics produce rich, immersive sound for you, while others hear practically nothing. It's a revolutionary personal audio experience hidden inside two classic designs, each enriched with premium accents and materials. Play music. Take calls. And block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays.

I got these for my birthday a month ago. And absolutely adore them. They play great quality music considering it’s open to the world. At half volume, the sound is great, and no one else can hear anything. I’ve shown these to about a dozen people, and they all adore them. They feel like listening to music from a speaker, but it’s private. And one of my favourite features is the open air aspect, being able to listen to music while having a conversation, or listening to a lecture during class. These are a must for anyone.
I would NOT recommend purhcasing any of the new initiative type products that Bose is producing. I preordered the original Frames as well as the Sleep Buds and I'm currently 0/2. The Sleepbuds did a massive recall and they are taking them back and refunding folks. I wish they would do the same with these. The fit is terrible, do not waste your money.
I have had these for about 5 months. The music sounds great and they work really well to answer phone calls. Much better than my other headphones. It is worth buying the polarized lenses and it's unfortunate they just don't come with polar lenses from the get go. The battery lasts about 3.5 hours of non stop use but they do charge quickly. The lenses do feel lightweight but they are solid. I would not like them if they were heavy. The case that comes with them is solid and compact and fit the glasses like a glove. It is pretty fun to have someone put them on and see the reaction to the great sound. The only negatives I have is the charger. It should be just the regular micro usb instead of the proprietary one. Second is that they don't already come with polarized lenses and third they have minimal bass. I work outside and do a lot of walking/bicycling for exercise and they are great.
I'll keep this short for now. Testing with myself and family. Love the concept. Will take them downtown for a test drive in the coming days. My goal is to finally beat the "dummies walking around with their hearing cut off via head phones or buds," because was there a time where I needed my hearing to survive dangerous situations. Last year I watched an ambulance come to a complete (safe) stop while the crew observed a kid with huge ear phones walk past in front of them in a pedestrian green-light cross walk. The situation could have been a disaster. Glad the ambulance crew watched out; they probably do it a lot. Again, hope these sunglasses at least partially solve the problem.
