BOSE FRAMES INTRODUCES SUNGLASSES WITH A SOUNDTRACK | #BOSEFRAMES Tuesday 05 February, 2019

I know a cool way to throw some future shade! I want to introduce you all to the Sunglasses of the future. I attended a fun SuperBowl pre-kickoff event party in Atlanta hosted by The Infatuation x Bose, in which Bose gave all of the attendees their newest innovative product #BoseFrames. To everyone else they’re just sunglasses.  The real secret: miniaturized Bose electronics hidden in the temples. It’s a state-of-the-art personal listening experience embedded in a classic design.

Sunglasses or Headphones? Answer: Both

Bose Frames are Sunglasses
Bose Frames come in two timeless styles — square and angled, or round and slightly smaller. Both block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays, and feature uniformly tinted lenses and distinct accents — including gold-plated steel hinges and charging pins. They’re scratch and shatter resistant, and weigh a mere 45 grams — standard for the category. Each element is smooth, modern, and minimal. And they are shaped, fit, and feel like the world’s most iconic eyewear.

Details and Availability — Frames and Bose AR


Bose Frames come in Matte Black and two universal styles — the larger (Alto) and smaller (Rondo). Both are available in the U.S. beginning in January 2019 at Bose stores and Bose.com at launch, followed by select resellers; and global markets in Spring 2019. An update on Bose AR, the industry’s first audio augmented reality platform, will be shared at SXSW 2019.

Rondo Frames (rounded)

Sunglasses collection features two classic silhouettes with built-in Bose speakers.You hear rich, immersive sound, while others hear practically nothing. Exclusive technologies and custom speakers direct sound at you and away from others.

Bose Frames are a Personal Audio Device

Bose Frames function like truly wireless headphones — with engineering that crushes the limitations of size-to-performance for personal listening. A miniscule, wafer-thin acoustic package is set seamlessly in each arm’s interior — rather than an earbud, or attached component — to produce discreet, jaw-dropping sound for the user, and no one else. For touch and voice control, an ultra-small microphone and multi-function button are embedded on the right temple for power and pairing, Siri and Google Assistant, calls and commands, or to pause and skip songs. The Bose Connect app provides additional features now, and software updates for new features in the future — like Bose AR.

Bose Frames are an Audio AR Wearable

Bose Frames are Bose AR compatible — the first commercial product embedded with the Bose audio augmented reality platform. Unlike other augmented reality glasses and platforms, Bose AR doesn’t change what you see, or use a lens or phone camera to superimpose objects in your sightline. Instead, it knows where you are and what you’re facing using a 9-axis head motion sensor and the GPS from your iOS or Android device — and automatically adds a layer of audio, connecting that place and time to endless possibilities for travel, learning, entertainment, gaming, and more. It’s all accessible through the ease of listening — clear-eyed, heads-up, hands-free. And with Bose AR experiences in development, it’s coming soon to Bose Frames.

Battery and Storage

Bose Frames use a lithium battery that connects to an included pogo-pin cable for charging. At average listening levels, they run up to 3.5 hours for playback and up to 12 hours on standby, and can be fully recharged in less than two hours. For smudges and storage, they come with a cleaning cloth/bag and protective case.

Its not just musical sunglasses, it is good for anything you can connect your bluetooth to. You can connect to your phone, contacts, the web, and all its audible content, just like headphones. Fitness. Travel. Games, too. Bose Frames are your portal to Bose AR, the world’s first audio-only augmented reality platform, where applications will utilize contextual audio to deliver first-of-a-kind experiences. Every pair of Bose Frames is already Bose AR enabled. And it’ll be unlocked via a free software update.

These are definitely revolutionary sunglasses. The innovation of these audio augmented reality sunglasses is a game changer! I am so excited to have a pair of these glasses and will be using these often. I see so many uses for these, I can’t wait until I can take these on a plane. Look if you need to tune someone out without them knowing, turn these bad boys on! These are also going to be a cool way I will be able to answer my phone calls or even listen to audio books or guided mediation at random!

The sound is made in the shade. Bose Frames will provide an update on its AR progress in March 2019 at SXSW.
