Nice Design
The sound is great as for a sunglasses speaker, but please check the product first before you take away, because I've got a defected product before I listen the sound is no bass and I think this is normal, but I exchanged the normal function one is amazing, this sound the pretty good and have "some" bass.

BTW, I recommend update firmware using your computer , iOS App always update fail.

Had these 3 day love them the glasses are comfy to wear and it’s nice being able to listen to music with out something in your ear all the time sound quality is good for what they are and you can still hear what’s going on around you witch is good only thing that could be better is the battery life but I’ve used them on and off for 3 days now without charging them again

AMAZING PRODUCT
I picked these up about a month ago and I recently changed the lenses to clear prescription lenses. AMAZING product for those who are constantly on conference calls or just want some music to play while getting on with your day. I would recommend them to anyone!

Yes you can get Transition prescription lenses !
I am thrilled. My optometrist ordered prescription lenses for my Bose sunglasses. Now I have prescription lenses that are Transition (light to dark) with scratch protection. Love Bose and Park Slope Optical 226 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn NY 11217. Best glasses ever !

Listening to music will never be the same.
I got these for my birthday a month ago. And absolutely adore them. They play great quality music considering it’s open to the world. At half volume, the sound is great, and no one else can hear anything. I’ve shown these to about a dozen people, and they all adore them. They feel like listening to music from a speaker, but it’s private. And one of my favourite features is the open air aspect, being able to listen to music while having a conversation, or listening to a lecture during class. These are a must for anyone.

Wonderful sound.
I have had these for about 5 months. The music sounds great and they work really well to answer phone calls. Much better than my other headphones. It is worth buying the polarized lenses and it's unfortunate they just don't come with polar lenses from the get go. The battery lasts about 3.5 hours of non stop use but they do charge quickly. The lenses do feel lightweight but they are solid. I would not like them if they were heavy. The case that comes with them is solid and compact and fit the glasses like a glove. It is pretty fun to have someone put them on and see the reaction to the great sound.

The only negatives I have is the charger. It should be just the regular micro usb instead of the proprietary one. Second is that they don't already come with polarized lenses and third they have minimal bass.
I work outside and do a lot of walking/bicycling for exercise and they are great.

Awful product - bad service
I would NOT recommend purhcasing any of the new initiative type products that Bose is producing. I preordered the original Frames as well as the Sleep Buds and I'm currently 0/2. The Sleepbuds did a massive recall and they are taking them back and refunding folks. I wish they would do the same with these. The fit is terrible, do not waste your money.

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.'
