LOVE these, but desperately in need of clear lens
I saw these on someone at a party and noticed the charging strip. So I asked the gentleman about it and he said "oh wow youre going to love these" and just put them on me and showed me how perfectly clean and beautiful it feels when listening to music through these. There is "blind spot" in your hearing of whats around you. Its like having ear buds in but also hearing whats going on around them. I think they are super dangerous for people starting to think you're crazy because I'll be walking down the street talking basically to myself through the phone connect.

All that being said, I wear blue light filtering glasses at my desk all day and this would be such an amazingly efficient addition to the work desk to have both the clear blue light filtering lenses in and be able to talk on phone calls etc.

Desperately looking forward to the addition of those lenses hopefully in the future.

So much better than ear buds - like someone is whispering into your brain. Better awareness of surroundings. Love them.

Find the stolen frames
I bought this one a month ago and it was great, but it's stolen and there is no way to find it. I think it was a great idea to have a feature in the Bose Connect App that if someone wants to connect to a stolen frames with specific serial number then the app could report the location.

Just got mine obviously not as loud as in or over ear but nice clean sound only for me with nothing in or on my ear. Calls are nice and clear as well. Comfortable and did I mention that there sunglasses.
I put that I wouldn’t recommend to a friend but that’s just because I don’t want anyone else to have them . Lol

Amazing product buying a pair for my dad
I bought these a couple days ago and they're awesome. I work at the market and was able to have a low level of music play through the day to keep me going while still able to serve customers and understand them fully. They work perfectly with my Google pixel 3xl and are pretty much touch free as I can tell Google to make phone calls(the volume I heard people at wasn't the loudest that's why it was 4 however not sure if I was in speaker) or turn the volume up. I would highly recommend these to people!

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.

Not bad
There are lots of good points and a few really annoying one.
Okay the good. The lens are good and do not give any magnification (unlike RayBan). The sound is really nice, except ... see below. Setup is easy. It is so much more convenient than shoving ear plus in your ears!
Now the bad. The battery life is short - max of 3 hours, but more likely 2! The blue tooth is intermittent, which when fully charged misses words. A little off-putting when listening to podcasts. And finally, I have the volume on the phone switched up to full, but if there is a little background noise it is difficult to hear anything.
I find myself quoting Elwood sometimes through ... "it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses"
But they are really good.

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
