Bose’s sporty shades offer good sound, a steady fit, and total awareness
So I can’t knock Bose for the disappointment I feel when switching back to my normal glasses, which now seem so very primitive. The Bose Frames Tempo let you hear the world around you with no obstructions — with a soundtrack playing over everything, while at the same time giving your ears a bit of a break compared to normal earbuds.

I am impressed by the BOSE Support
I’m new to the Bose ecosystem as a buying customer. I’ve forever heard of the brand, of course, but within the last couple years I’ve purchased the Sleepbuds, NC Headphones 700, Tenor Frames, and SoundLink headphones II. I’ve had occasion to call in about a few things and they’ve been on-point each time. Very responsive, taking care of my issues quickly and professionally.

Don't work with Spotify
Like the frames, sound. Everything good until I realized they only work with iMusic, not with Spotify. Not changing over. Returning frames. Let me know when they work with Spotify.

Sounds great and looks great!
The sound quality on these glasses are surprisingly good. You can still hear some of the sounds of the environment around you which is also a plus for me, as it adds safety while in walking or biking Which I do everyday. I really love these glasses and like showing it off to family and friends. With...

Bose Frames review: Audio sunglasses that sound surprisingly good
 Yes, they're a little expensive at $200 -- and they're not for everyone, particularly those who wear prescription glasses -- but companies like Oakley and Rayban don't have a problem charging $150 to $200 for sunglasses, and those models don't have high-tech motion sensors or micro speakers that pump out audio that sounds surprisingly decent. Editor's note: We'll update the review and revisit the rating after the AR features are added.

Solid set of bluetooth sunglasses, but don't buy these expecting too much
I have a few pairs of headphones already. But sometimes I don't feel like wearing them when I take walks. These bluetooth glasses fit the bill for that purpose. Build quality seems alright. Arms are plastic though. For most guys, definitely get the Alto. The Rondo seems to be very small to wear. For...

Bose Frames Tempo Review
But if your exercise audio needs aren't built upon booming bass response, it’s not hard to imagine the Bose Frames Tempo fitting into—or even upgrading—your fitness routine. The Bose Frames Tempo headphones/sunglasses offer the same audio quality as the original while making improvements primarily in terms of fit.

Experience with Bose Frames
Recently purchase Bose Frames Alto. My main purpose was to use them for walking the dog and golf (both practice and during a round). I have had them a week and thought I would provide a quick review. When I first opened the box, I was slightly disappointed since they don't look like high end sunglas...
