Bose Frames Alto Audio Sunglasses is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 312.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient, futuristic, and worth the price! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased these audio frames June '19 and I've been impressed/satisfied ever since. The sound quality is amazing for open air audio. Some reviews may mention the sound isn't as loud as headphones or it doesn't deliver bass as good. Well duh, these ARE NOT headphones. They are perfect for using in a public setting where you still want great sound quality and have the ability to pay attention to your surroundings. Plus they're stylish and make people wonder. I use mine daily and they're ideal for taking phone calls and even lounging around the house with a good audio book. They are worth the investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from got mine with corrective lenses [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] tried them on in the store and loved them. didn't think they were practical for me because I don't spend much time outdoors where I could use them. Wife got them for me for Xmas because she saw me loving them in the store. So now that I have them, I looked online and found replacement lenses that make them into readers so I can wear them indoors and even at work. Now I love them and they are more practical. Lenses from lensesRx fit perfect and are optically perfect for me. They can also do custom prescriptions, not just readers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Glasses. Just Watch Out for Police [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had these for a week so it's a bit early, but I bought these to possibly replace my airpods. They have definitely done that. Sound quality is amazing, super comfy, and calls are fantastic. Yesterday I was on a long conversation outside of the office tower I work at. I joked with who I was talking to, "I wonder if someone is going to think I'm just talking to myself." Well, 45 minutes later a police car pulls up and an officer approaches me. Very nicely he explains that someone called reporting that someone had been pacing around the building talking to themselves for a while. I showed him my glasses and we both got a good laugh. He tried them on and liked them too! He then went on his way. All in all, I love em.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alto Sounds Great, But Need Wider Range of Lenses [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think Bose is really on to something with Frames. The sound is terrific, ear fatigue is gone (a major accomplishment in itself) and they look very good. Sun glasses are fine, but they need lens for +1, +2 and +3 reading glasses at the very least for many with less than perfect vision. Also prescription glasses is a big thing for many people. In set-up, I found I could not see the Bose app well with the sunglasses and had to switch back and forth with my reading glasses to control the app. Other than expanding the lens options, Frames is a great new product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am so happy with these sunglasses. To start with this product is so innovative. I have yet to see anything on the market like it. The sound is so incredible, like all Bose products. Nothing holds a candle to the sound you get from a Bose product and these are no different. Before I tried these I was worried they wouldn't have enough base, ect because they are sunglasses and wireless but I was pleasantly surprised. The base is amazing! I love that I am able to talk on the phone with these and the sound is clear and crisp. I can not recommend these enough. They are worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sunglasses [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My wife bought these for me for Valentine's day. I finally am able to wear them ( I live in Buffalo NY) I'm a mailman and our job does not allow is to wear earbuds. These sunglasses allow me to now listen to music or answer a phone call without getting in trouble. I absolutely love them. Minus the battery life of about 3.5 hours. However I charge them on my lunch break now and I get a full days use out of them. I would definitely recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had this product for a few weeks now and the sound this product brings is just awesome and top notch. There is minimal to no leakage from the frames too. Also the fact that the lenses are interchangeable is really good feature as I'm not one for dark lenses. The app to connect is really nice although I would question why it is needed at all. The only thing is the frames are a bit too bulky. This is a personal thing though doesn't remove from the awesomeness of the product. I would really recommend this product. I hope they come in less bulky styles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've had my Alto's for a week now and I love them. I love sharing the experience with my co-workers & friends and seeing their reactions. Definitely a unique experience. The sound is great considering they're coming from a lightweight pair of glasses. Classic design on the frames that WoW's people. Could it improve ? Yes, but you have to give credit where credit is due. Bose keeps amazing my by fearlessly pushing the boundaries. They are not reinventing the wheel but BOYYY are they improving it on these frames.
