The new Bose Frames sunglasses combine stylish premium sunglasses with the functionality of modern headphones in a unique wearable design. The first model, Frames Tempo, was developed for sports, while the other two models, Frames Tenor and Frames Soprano, are designed for everyday use. The two sunglasses feature Bose open-ear audio technology and the smallest, thinnest, most discreet speaker system yet.

The manufacturer speaks of a breakthrough in mobile audio that is reflected in superior sound through sunglasses instead of headphones. All three new sunglasses Bose Frames Tempo, Tenor and Soprano have polarized lenses that block up to 99 percent of UV rays. The design, fit and performance match the world-renowned sunglasses for outdoor sports and everyday use.

The super-flat Bose systems are discreetly integrated into the temples of the audio sunglasses, with no screws, seams or perforations visible. The electronics remain practically invisible. They weigh only 50 grams more than the previous model.

A wireless connection to the smartphone is established after switching on, which then allows the user to stream music and make phone calls or use the voice assistant. The sound is fuller and clearer than its predecessor, thanks to exclusive Bose technology. With the exact configuration of the speaker systems, music, conversations and other content remain audible only to the wearer.

Bose Frames Tempo sports sunglasses

The Bose Frames Tempo sports sunglasses are built from the durable, lightweight and flexible TR90. The glasses are protected against extreme temperatures and even challenging workouts should be easy to handle. The spring hinges and temple tips are made of the thermoplastic elastomer TPE, which provides comfortable stability. There are three shapes of nose pads to choose from for optimum grip.

The two temples are equipped with 22 mm full-range loudspeakers, from which cyclists in particular will benefit. Even at 40 km/h they can still hear their team mates, sports partners, traffic or warnings during their cycling tour. The focus is on durability, the sunglasses have been manufactured break, sweat, scratch and weatherproof. One battery charge lasts for eight hours.

The polycarbonate lenses have a light transmission of 12 percent, and orange and blue interchangeable lenses are optionally available.

Everyday sunglasses Bose Frames Tenor and Soprano

The everyday sunglasses Bose Frames Tenor have a small square design, while for Frames Soprano a cat’s eye design was chosen. The electronics including the two 16 mm speakers are located in the temples. On the outside, only high-quality sunglasses are visible, which are light and elegant.

Both models are resistant to scratches and breakage. The battery is charged with a special pogo pin charger and gives 5.5 hours of runtime. The lenses are easy to change. Mirrored lenses in blue and silver for tenor are also available. For the soprano the glasses can be purchased in pink and violet with color gradient.

The three sunglasses are rounded off with improved voice pickup, volume EQ and simple controls.
