Pleasantly Surprised
Rich sound. Style favorite. Sturdy construction. Looking forward to the polarized lenses. I find it very hard to take them off when going inside. Would love to see a wireless charging case and the ability to cast music to more than one pair.

Great sound, great glasses
My new favorite headphones! I reviewed these with a five star rating, but that review was rejected. So I am pleased to review now with two stars. These are my new favorite headphones and glasses. I have purchased extra lenses to use them inside and out

I've had these for 10 days and i think the sound and functionality is stellar. Battery life is "iffy". If you are a golfer these arent for you, you will make it ~12 holes then nothing. The lenses are "OK". I would have gladly paid more for better battery life and lenses. To walk the dog in the am, these ROCK, just dont expect a lot of time with the music.

Great concept. Poor execution
I bought this when they were just released.
After receiving and connecting them i've noticed few things:
1. They look wired on you , depends on your face shape
2. They feel fragile
3. After playing 2 songs they dropped from 90% battery to 80%
4.My biggest issue is the quality of the sound- mediocre at most
5. Havent tried them on a very sunny day but i think they will be ok , not as good as real sunglasses but not as bad as being without .

Going to return them in few days

Alto Sounds Great, But Need Wider Range of Lenses
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!

Amazing tech
Bought these a couple days ago, just took them for a lengthy bike ride, was able to hear them very clearly while cycling about 30km/hr. They have ZERO bass so some songs at loud volumes will sound different than what you may be used to with NC headphones. The open ear design is awesome for being able to stay aware but still have some music to keep your sanity while commuting.
