This is one of the hottest summers I have seen since I moved to Florida one year ago, and doing my five-mile walk has proven to be a challenge this season.
Not only is hot, but it’s also very bright early in the morning. While I usually wear my prescription glasses, I’ve had to switch to a pair of sunglasses.
One thing I know for sure is that the eyes need as much sun protection as the rest of the body.
A New Pair of Sunglasses
My search for a pair of stylish sunglasses that I could wear every day and that cover my fitness needs led me to the new Bose Frames. That’s right, Bose Frames. Crazy, right?
Sunglasses that can protect your eyes from UV rays and allow you to listen to music through high-quality speakers is not a thing of science fiction.
You can now walk around in a pair of fashionable sunglasses and listen to your favorite tunes cable-free!
How Is It Possible?
Bose, which is widely known for its high-quality sound-delivery products, has added a line of stylish audio sunglasses to its catalog. Bose Frames are sunglasses with speakers built-into the frame.
They also include Bose AR. These sunglasses deliver a truly remarkable personal audio experience without anything in or on the ears.
Unlike existing open-ear products that use bone conduction, 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. As a result, you get unbelievable audio clarity and spaciousness that seems almost impossible given the product’s size.
What is truly amazing is how full and rich the audio sounds to the wearer but how little of that can be heard by anyone else, even if they’re standing next to the wearer.
Choose from the Alto or Rondo designs, two timeless styles enriched with premium accents and materials, such as gold-plated hinges.
What’s Your Style?
Bose Frames feature technology that prevents sound from being heard by people nearby, and they are comfortable enough for all-day wear. In fact, many people wear these glasses all day long—most don’t even know they are there.
The product’s form factor enables you to remain socially available to others, unlike headphones which send an “I’m listening to music, don’t bother me” message.
