Customer Reviews for Bose Frames Alto Bluetooth Audio Sunglasses with Integrated Microphone
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.
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
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.
