Bose Frames Alto Audio Sunglasses is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 297.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient, futuristic, and worth the price! 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 Fantastic Glasses. Just Watch Out for Police 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 got mine with corrective lenses 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 They rock, day and prescription lenses? I'll keep this short for now. Testing with myself and family. Love the concept. Will take them downtown for a test drive in the coming days. My goal is to finally beat the "dummies walking around with their hearing cut off via head phones or buds," because was there a time where I needed my hearing to survive dangerous situations. Last year I watched an ambulance come to a complete (safe) stop while the crew observed a kid with huge ear phones walk past in front of them in a pedestrian green-light cross walk. The situation could have been a disaster. Glad the ambulance crew watched out; they probably do it a lot. Again, hope these sunglasses at least partially solve the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! 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 Awesome product I bought these having read reviews saying they were rather cheap looking and limited bass. However, I still wanted to give them a go as I love gadgets and thought they would be cool. Having received them I am absolutely in love with them. I don't think they look cheap at all, maybe not designer but then I'm quite pleased with that. They do look similar to my son's Raybans though. They are supremely comfortable and I think the sound is aweome and a totally different expereince to wearing ear buds. The sound seems more spatial and of course you can still hear things around you. I did not think I would love them as much as I do but these ae definitely a keeper. Really really pleased with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love em! I walked into the Bose Store to look for cordless headphones and came across the sunglasses immediately. Out of curiosity I tried them on and fell in love immediately. With in minutes I purchased them. They work perfectly. I also bought the mirror polarized lenses. I can't say enough about the quality. I read some of the low ratings here and find they maybe due to operator error and not trying on the glasses in store. Would be nice to see lenses that transition and also making them for prescription wearers. My sister and brothers loved them but they would need a prescription lenses for me to buy them as a gift. Looking forward to the next generations and hope they can make more choices for frames and lenses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mostly Happy I was initially so happy with my Frames that I took them to my optometist and had them fitted with light weight perscription transition lenses. Now that I have have had them for a while I have two concerns. The biggest problem is that the battery life really stinks. With a full charge they will not make it through a 2 hour walk while listening to music. Secondly, I am constantly having to push them back up my nose. The weight of the frames makes it difficult to keep them in in place. I had planned to use these during hiking trips thru the Grand Canyon next month. But if the battery wont last two hours it is kind of a waste of money.
