Summer is here and that means we’re spending a lot more time out in the sun. But as a baseball mom, I tend to find myself needing good sunglasses all year round! So I’m always on the hunt for cool shades.
Bose has taken the top spot when it comes to cool sunglasses because they’ve now got the first audio sunglasses! Yes, you read that right. These sunglasses have built-on Bose speakers so we can take our music with us while protecting our eyes!
BOSE AUDIO SUNGLASSES AT BEST BUY
Can you imagine being able to listen to your favorite playlists, audiobooks, podcasts, and take calls all while enjoying the sun without earbuds? This sounds like a dream for this baseball mom!
The Bose Alto and Bose Rondo frames offer an immersive audio experience with the built-in speakers hidden in two classic sunglass frame designs. Oh, and if you’re wondering about your eyes, they also offer the UVA/UVB protection we all want and need!
If you’re wondering how these work and whether the sound quality is on par with your favorite headphones, check out some of the info I learned about them.
Do I have to wear anything in my ears?
No! Audio sunglasses are a new way to listen! They feature a revolutionary open-ear design! The speakers are built into the frames.
Unlike most of the current open-ear products that use bone conduction, Bose frames use a custom-design speaker combined with patented acoustic chambers and ports to drive the audio in our ears from the temples of the glasses. The technology is also designed to keep the sound from being heard by the people around you!
What’s the sound quality like?
The design of the frames offers great audio clarity and spaciousness. You get full, rich sound without looking like you’re cut off from the people around you by earbuds. If you’re a fan of Bose speakers, these audio frames could be a great addition to your technology collection.
What’s the difference between the two frames?
The Bose Rondo Frames feature rounded lenses that offer a smaller fit while the Bose Alto Frames offer a more classic angular shape which offer a larger fit.

Can I answer phone calls?
Absolutely! There is a built-in microphone that lets you be part of all of your calls. You can even use it to access Siri and your Google Assistant!
But are they good sunglasses?
The Bose Frames are uniformly tinted and block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays. They also feature shatter and scratch-resistant lenses (which I know is a must for me as a busy mom)! The nylon rims are also scratch-resistant.
Those are some of my favorite things about Bose sunglasses. Check out some of the other great features:
- BOSE CONNECT APP – The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to tips, allows you to unlock Bose AR, and personalize your settings so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up. (Available on iOS and Android.)
- BOSE AR ENABLED – Bose AR is a first-of-its-kind audio augmented reality platform that makes astonishing new audio experiences possible. Combining the power of wearable audio products, mobile devices, and integrated apps, Bose AR can augment your world with content for your ears instead of your eyes.
So if you’re looking for a way to enjoy your music and more this summer without sending out that “Don’t bother me!” message that headphones give — Bose Audio Sunglasses Frames are a great option.
They’re available at Best Buy and are great for busy moms and dads who find themselves spending a lot of time outdoors with the kids!
