Deal pricing and availability subject to change after time of publication.
SAVE $46: The Bose Frames, Bose’s open-ear audio sunglasses, are 23% off at Amazon: just $153.29 (original price: $199).
Ever wish your sunglasses could be more like headphones? Check out the Bose Frames. They won’t replace your earbuds, but they do have the novelty factor.
These audio sunglasses feature scratch-resistant lenses that block up to 99% of UVA/UVB rays, but their selling point is the open-ear audio system that delivers sound right to your ear, so you can enjoy your music without disturbing those around you.
It should be noted that while impressive, the sound is no match for a loud environment — Mashable’s review of the Frames notes that “Bose Frames simply can’t compete with a noisy city” — but that means that with nothing in your ears, you’ll be able to pay attention to what’s going on around you.
Plus, there’s no need to whip out your phone every time you want to switch up your audio. Press & Turn volume control lets you toggle audio settings from the sunglasses themselves, and you can stray up to 30 feet from the audio source before the Bluetooth connection starts struggling. Did we mention the integrated microphone? You can take calls or summon Siri without bothering with your phone.
On the whole, the Bose Frames are an interesting option. They’re not the best of the best in either sunglasses or headphones, but if you’re looking for a handy gadget that combines both to an impressive standard, you can check them out at Amazon for $153.29.
