Bose release three new pairs of their music playing Frames sunglasses and two new pairs of earbuds with QuietComfort on the flagship pair.
Bose have been working on their sunglasses with build-in speakers for a few years now, releasing their AR model last year. Despite never fully catching on, the concept isn’t new, with the idea being music without blocking your ears, but remaining unheard by people around you.
This year sees the release of three pairs of new Frames sunglasses. They’ve dropped the augmented reality functionality to focus purely on the style and music aspects. All three pairs follow the frame style set out by the original Frames glasses in 2018 and hold UV protected lenses.
The Tempo sunglasses are their premium pair, with a bulky temple housing the earpiece, charging port and larger speakers drivers firing music directly into your ears.
The Tenor and Soprano models use smaller 16mm drivers and a 5.5-hour battery in the skinnier arms
Bose also dropped their two new truly wireless earbuds. The flagship earbuds feature Bose’s best-in-class QuietComfort noise cancellation, with an equally premium price tag at $279, placing them in line with the best of the best from Apple AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM3.
Bose Sport Earbuds drop the ANC for a more active pair of earbuds with a new locking mechanism for a healthier $179.
