Great for the beach or walking
I love them. People and quick to point out sound quality, but you have to remember what they are designed for. Great for walking the dog or lying on the beach.

Great sound
Overall the glasses produces great sound. My only issue is the glasses do not sit well on my nose. It slips down and I have to constantly push it us

Great sounding glasses. Not just a Gimmick!
When I first bought these glasses I thought they were just a gimmick. Liking technology I thought I would give them a go. I am very impressed to say the least. The sound quality is typically Bose. The design of the glasses is good even including the speakers. The reason only given a 4 out of 5 is that the sound does leak if turned up too loud so would be annoying to others close by if volume up. Also I bought the blue lenses too which in my opinion make the glasses look cheap. I'll stick with the black!

Features make up for the plastic quality.
I do love these glasses overall. I would love more lenses to be available, especially for indoor. The volume control on the arm is awesome, and makes it quite easy to navigate. I haven't had any problems with these not fitting my head correctly, or the sound going off and on during bumps or high wind as much as my older model. These ones look quite stylish and fit in with my sunglasses collection though! Having glasses that can discreetly play your music wherever you go is a nice plus to have. Overall, quite happy with these glasses, and I'd recommend or gift them as I believe the price can be a bit higher than the plastic feels. That's about my only complaint. Noise quality and comfort, volume, all about what you'd expect from these.

Unique but underwhelming
The Bose Tenor headphones are a very unique piece of technology that pairs sunglasses with headphones. My first impression when trying them on is “these feel like they are made for a small head”. They feel tight and uncomfortable to wear. The sound quality was good but not great, and the audio levels could have been a bit higher. Overall I do not recommend these unless you have a small head.

Unique Use Case
First thing is I have a big face so the shades are a little tight for me. Other than that l
They look well constructed though all plastic. The sound is nice however volume leaves something to be desired. The perfect use for them to me is any activity that needs you to still be alert. They create a nice ambience or background music white noise.

Cream of the sunglass crop!
I've always hated sunglasses but after getting these, I can't take them off my face. I seriously love everything about these. The way they feel, the way they look, and the way they sound. The UX/UI is great and the app helped me connect them easily to my phone.

Boss of all bose
I'm styling and jamming to the tunes while I cruise on down Hollywood boulevard. All the ladies see me in my retro classic shades and have no idea the music is rocking, they see me and think I'm just super excited as I dance down the street. But the secret is these Uber awesome sunglasses that are not only stylish but can rock the tunes and nobody would even know. This helps me keep a low profile when I'm on the DL, I can discreetly listen to my favorite podcast or book all while relaxing without a care in the world.

Sound quality is superb and the fit is just about perfect, what that means is they will hold up while and not fall off your face. 10 out of 10 I would highly recommend these

Nice glasses, but gimmicky
The Bose Frames Tenor visually appear to be the same as any pair of big framed sunglasses, however, the arms look and feel very thick due to the electronics in them. Sadly though, these Frames are let down by cheap feeling plastic and a poorly fitted finish, this is disappointing considering Bose are renowned for producing high quality products with excellent finish and design.
The headphones are well equipped in the sound department, with clear sounding speakers position conveniently near the ear controlled both by the built in controls as well as through the Bose app on both Android and Apple devices. The music sounds clear and vibrant yet doesn't over-power the surroundings allowing for a very natural mixture of both. The microphones produce great audio in phone calls allowing convenience in all situations. I thoroughly enjoyed the lenses, which are clear and protect your eyes from the sun with high quality polarised lens.
Overall the sunglasses are still a gimmick but hopefully further design tweaks will allow greater adjustability for comfort and more intuitive controls for ease of use.
