I recently got the opportunity to try out the new super stylish Bose Alto Frames and they quickly have become my new favorite accessory. The audio sunglasses allow you to listen to music or make calls without having to have anything in or over your ears. What impressed me the most, is the incredible audio clarity, especially given how small they are.
Now unlike the existing over-ear products that use bone conduction, the Bose Frames use a custom-designed speaker in conjunction with a series of patented acoustic chambers and ports to steer audio into the listener’s ears from the temples of the glasses.
And I am sure you are sitting there asking yourself, if I’m listening to music or talking on the phone, does that mean everyone around me can hear it as well? Well I had Wes stand next to me while I was listening to music, and he said he couldn’t hear a thing.
The frames feature a one-button control system so you can power on and off, accept and reject calls, play and pause music, and access Siri or Google Assistant. Another special feature is that the frames are Bose AR enabled, which are 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.
So that’s how they work, but can we talk about how cute and stylish they are as glasses? The frames come in two timeless styles, featuring premium accents and materials, like gold-plated hinges. Now Alto, (the ones I’m wearing) offered more of a classic angular look with a larger fit (I also think these would be great for men). The Rondo is more of a distance look with rounder lenses and an over all smaller fit. Also I feel like it’s important to point out that the Bose frames block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays. They feature shatter and scratch-resistant lens so you can survive mom life on the go!
So if you are looking for the new must-have wearable tech, I highly recommend you check out Bose Rondo or Bose Alto Frames so you can listen to music or take calls and still feel like you are connected to the world.
