Made a big difference to my safe driving too!

These sunglasses have given me the best and safest hands-free audio while driving - ever. Easy to use, great quality audio and the polarised lenses make these the best sunnies I have owned, and I've had a few. Simple voice instructions to/from Siri are always accurate. Recharging is quick and I like that it announces how much of the battery is left in charge when you turn them on. Listening to music and the sound quality isn't bad (I'm a sound nut). If I could make them just a little bit louder, I'd be chuffed. Show details

Do not buy these!

I got 2 years limited use before they died, which seems to be twice as much as anyone else. Even of you can find them for sale DO NOT BUY THEM, or IMHO any other Bose product. A complete scam! Show details

Same issue as everyone else

I purchased these just over a year ago and today I've run into the issue that many other users seem to be reporting. My Frames no longer charge and are now just a chunky set of sunglasses. When they were working I quite enjoyed them, the sound quality was average but they let you hear your surroundings without the wind noise that earphones with passthrough suffer from. I'm in the process of contacting Bose for customer support but they won't do it online, and being just out of warranty I'm not hopeful. Given that so many customers are having the same issue my opinion is that this product has a serious design issue that Bose needs to address, or they should stop selling this product. Show details

Great sound and comfort but stopped working after a month of light use. Bose said they would replace but still have not months later. Luckily I used PayPal I guess Show details

Waste of money

I have had mine for just over a year and half and used them infrequently. They would have been charged less than 20 times over their life and now they no longer charge or turn on. Bose will not warrant them nor provide a repair. Don't waste your money. Show details

New Bose frames audio sunglasses

From the moment I tried them I knew I had to have them. They look ok and sound great But what wowed me was Bose AR audio augmented platform which allows you to here different areas of sound whilst turning your head #awesome. Now these frames / glasses don’t just protect your eyes they also make and take calls. They are Light and stylish. Definitely recommend especially the price $299

You have had them for a while now, is there any issues, do they charge well and still hold the charge?

Do they have sound cancellation when on the phone to cut out back ground noises

It doesn’t have noise cancellation but it does cut out much of the background noise. But not completely. I use them in the car mostly.
