Customer Reviews for Bose Frames Rondo Bluetooth Audio Sunglasses with Integrated Microphone
The Bose Frames look and feel really nice, I have a larger sized head and finding comfortable glasses can be an issue but I have to say I could wear these all day. Setting up the Frames with the App was really easy and I like the simple instructions Bose supply, I’m not a great one for ploughing though mountains information so they get my gratitude for that.
The sound is directed into your ears via speakers on the arms, this is audible to people around you, I was concerned about that but I had someone else wear them, it is reasonably quiet and not irritating as you can hear the whole of the music which in noisier environments seems almost to disappear into the background. The quality of the sound is good as you would expect from Bose but a little on the quiet side even approaching full volume, this is where your sticking out ears pays off in a big way. If you bend your ears slightly forward the sound increases by a lot and if you cup your hands over your ears (I have a lot of spare time) the volume increase is incredible and you get the full impact of how dynamic these tiny speakers are.
I’ve made many calls with the Frames and people at the other end haven’t noticed any issues with some even saying the call quality is better than with the phone alone. I don’t really use Siri much but tested it and works well and does what I asked.
To summarise, the Frames are stylish and comfortable with nice sound quality and if they offered them with prescription lenses I would gladly wear them daily I really enjoyed using them for making calls.
-I find myself with my phone in my hand now, because that is the only way to control the volume and the Bluetooth signal sometimes gets distorted other wise.
-What's the battery life on this thing, 20 mins?
-Fully recharging them can be dice roll.Will they recharge 100%, 70%,10%? It depends on how lucky you are that day.
Great concept,I get lot's of compliments on the style and I am over all happy with the purchase BUT they are kinks that need to be worked out.
High quality sound.....
I’ve been using it for a day now and overall i do think that there is one shortcoming that judging by the hardware is capable of being rectified over future updates.
The shortcoming being -
Why does audio keep playing when the shades are off? If the power off feature is dependent on turning the shades upside down, I think this can definitely be rectified.
Apart from that I have absolutely no complains. Love the glasses. Love the audio quality. Great product by Bose!
