It’s a revolutionary personal audio experience, enriched with premium accents and materials. Play music. Take calls. And block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays. And they make connecting easily with Bluetooth. Setup is easy, too. Simply put them on. Turn them on. And the Bose Connect app* walks you through the rest.

Bose Frames Alto Audio Sunglasses is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 231.
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 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 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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Awesome Purchased these frames about a week ago. From the moment I put them on, I wasn’t impressed with the audio. I thought they would sound cheap, but they don’t. It’s the coolest feeling to have the audio so clean and clear in your ears, but be able to hear the everyday traffic around you. The reviews about the bass are correct...there definitely isn’t an booming bass...but I guess you have to remember that they are SUNGLASSES! Haha These definitely aren’t created to replace your headphones completely, but to enhance your normal day to day living. As long as you aren’t trying to listen to dubstep, you should find these incredibly enjoyable. Can’t wait until you can do a prescription in them. Definitely want to get some for my family at that point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sunglasses 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 5 out of 5 by from Truly Wireless Music on the go! I have had Bose Frames a few weeks now, and still can't believe how good they are yet unobtrusive to people nearby. The frames themselves have that great timeless retro style. I have the replacement blue Alto lenses that provide a more subtle tint that's better suited for sun and shade. It is the sound clarity and depth that has blown me away though. I can't believe Bose can provide their normal high sound quality out of speakers embedded in frames. Another great innovative product from Bose I just look forward to a time when they offer prescription lenses and I can wear them all the time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
