Great product
I love this product, I use it to listen to audiobooks while walking and find it safer than other headphones as I can still hear ambient noise from traffic etc. The frames are surprisingly lightweight and very comfortable to wear.

Shame about the fit
I had the first generation of the Frames and the fit was excellent. The second generation probably does have slightly better sound and battery but the fit is awful and there is only size

Very audible
The sound quality is great, but they keep slipping down the bridge of my nose

Not for me
Great product for someone that always has their phone on them. I wanted to walk for exercise and have the music. I did not realize I needed my phone on me for these to work.
They look great though!

Cheap material
Let me start off by saying that the quality of sound is amazing but the material of the actual frame not as much. These frame feel like glasses you buy at a gas station (cheap plastic). I feel like Bose really need to reconsider the material that the frames are made from. These frames felt as if they where constantly wanting to slip off my face.
In conclusion great sound but poor frame material.

Great sunglasses!
I bought these over a month ago and show them to everybody! They’re awesome when I walk with them or lay at the beach. Sound quality is amazing and they get about 4 hour playing power.

I was in the market for similar looking glasses so I figured why not get the style and technology in one.

How long will the charge last? How long to fully charge?
Thomas C on Jun 18, 2019
  Thanks for your inquiry. Bose specifications suggest that a charge will last up to 3.5 hours, although volume of playback and other factors may affect battery life. To recharge them completely takes up to approximately 2 hours.
Can the lens be made to prescription?
Carl S on May 20, 2019
  Thanks for your inquiry! Bose has responded to this question like this:

'We are currently unable to support any use of third-party lenses. As any unauthorized modifications to Bose Frames will void the warranty.'

As an authorized Bose dealer, we always follow their lead in respect to modifying products. Thank you!
