Bose Frames are a total game changer when it comes to new wearables and it’s also a window into what is to come in the future.
Firstly, they combine the look and feel of premium protective sunglasses with … wait for it … all the functionality and performance of wireless headphones. And it doesn’t stop there. They are also the world’s first audio augmented reality platform to hit Australia.
With these stylish frames, users can stream music and information, take and make calls, and access virtual assistants from — while keeping playlists, entertainment, and conversations private.
“Frames are both magical and practical. With the new lens options, they’re more versatile premium sunglasses. But when you turn them on, they function like headphones, instantly connecting to your phone, contacts, the web, and all its audible content.”Mehul Trivedi, Bose Frames Director
Bose Frames function like truly wireless headphones. For touch and voice control, an ultra-small microphone and multi-function button are embedded on the right temple for power and pairing, Siri and Google Assistant, calls and commands, or to pause and skip songs.
At average listening levels, Bose Frames run up to 3.5 hours for playback and up to 12 hours on standby, and can be fully recharged in less than two hours.
