Bose Frames Tempo ReviewLike the Bose Frames Tenor, the Tempo model uses the same strong TR-90 nylon construction material. However, they're rated IPX4 for water resistance, which makes them more durable versus the elements---again, great for sports use. Oh, and the battery life ramps up to 8 hours use on a single charge. Another difference from other Bose models is the swappable and adjustable silicone nose pads. It's only a small feature but makes a difference when you're out running or being active.
Bose Sunglasses ReviewEver wanted to leave your headphones at home on a hot summer day? That’s the idea behind Bose Frames, a gadget that combines your sunglasses with headphones by building in speakers that are pointed towards your ears. This means you’re able to keep your ears and head free of anything but your pair of sunglasses, while still being able to listen to music, podcasts or audiobooks. Bose has included this headphone functionality inside the body of a fairly stylish pair of sunglasses, and the likelihood is that the average person wouldn’t even realize these are smart audiowear at all. Bose has nailed the design of the Frames. They look like regular unisex sunglasses. Granted, the arms are a bit thicker and wider near the ears, where traditional sunglasses would taper, and there’s a small gold button for turning them on and controlling music. But I was happy wearing them when not listening to music.
Chemion 100A ReviewA fun deviation from the standard options, the Chemion 100A let you use your smartphone to program a custom message that is displayed on the lenses using an array of LEDs. They're not the most durable, but as long as you're careful, they're sure to be a hit at parties.
OhO Bluetooth Sunglasses ReviewThe OhO Bluetooth Sunglasses provide an excellent option for those working on a budget, delivering decent looks with reasonable audio quality. The OhO's are 141mm wide, which is a similar width to the Bose Frames Tenor. They come with UV400 polarized blue lenses, although they are available in Black and Red, too. Inside each frame are a small speaker and microphones for voice calling and smart assistant control. The OhO's last up to 3 hours with continuous use.
ZUNGLE V2 Viper ReviewZUNGLE sunglasses are very stylish. The frames are made of plastic but look quite durable. The lenses feature UV40 protection. They are also polarized and have an anti-scratch coating. The lenses are easily replaceable/swappable and you can change them in a few seconds. The glasses also feature IPX4 rating which is splash proof, sweat, and weather resistant, which makes them a good choice for workouts.
