Bose introduces three new Frames — Tempo, Tenor, and Soprano, which combine the protection and style of premium sunglasses with the functionality of premium headphones. First up, we have the Frames Tempo, designed to be rugged and engineered specially for outdoor workouts. The Frames Tenor and Soprano are more for everyday use and feature the company’s proprietary Open Ear Audio technology, along with the smallest, slimmest and most concealed Bose speaker systems ever.
All three Frames boast polarized lenses capable of blocking up to 99% of UV rays, while looking, fitting and performing like stylish sunglasses. The wafer-thin Bose speakers are carefully embedded in each arm without extra parts, visible screws, seams, or perforations. This means you can stream music, take / make calls, and use your personal assistant, as your conversations are seemingly isolated in an audio bubble that only you can hear.
