I purchased these and didn’t get the free lenses - although still be advertised as free today - might take to trading standards to get resolved

Awesome sound from a compact package
I love gadgets and looked around to see what I could buy with some spare cash and saw these sunglasses. I read the reviews and saw the mixed feedback but went ahead as I have other Bose speakers and really rate them.

I am completely taken with them from the first time I put them on and connected my music through them. Such a great immersive sound from these glasses is amazing. I even showed them to my 18 old daughter and she said they were 'cool' and wants some now. She can buy her own BTW.

I would recommend these if you want to listen to music in the sun (hopefully by a pool soon!) and not take separate headphones.

This is great
I received the frames as a gift from my children. They make smile every time I use them. The sound is very good and careful use can reduce the risk of others hearing them. I really like the update to enable volume control by turning my head. These are great headphones that are sunglasses and great sunglasses that are headphones. Ok. Probably not right for dull and miserable days but they bring delight and joy when the sun comes out.

Great way to listen
I got a pair of Altos almost a year ago, and like others have pointed out, it was way too large. I called a few weeks ago to see if there was anything Bose could do and they told me that they had come out with a smaller Alto version S/M and offered to exchange them. I just go the smaller ones and they fit perfectly! One thing I can say about Bose, they have excellent customer service. I have a Bose surround sound system that’s probably over 5 years old and they still support it. The Bose frames are really a remarkable listening experience, with nothing in or over your ears, yet you can hear songs perfectly. A minor complaint would be relative lack of base, but given the small size of the speakers I really don’t see how they could have done better. Besides, if that’s an issue for you, you’re probably better off with their earphones. But for the beach, pool or other outdoor activity it’s an amazing product!

Awesome product
I bought these having read reviews saying they were rather cheap looking and limited bass. However, I still wanted to give them a go as I love gadgets and thought they would be cool. Having received them I am absolutely in love with them. I don't think they look cheap at all, maybe not designer but then I'm quite pleased with that. They do look similar to my son's Raybans though. They are supremely comfortable and I think the sound is aweome and a totally different expereince to wearing ear buds. The sound seems more spatial and of course you can still hear things around you.

I did not think I would love them as much as I do but these ae definitely a keeper. Really really pleased with them.

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!
