Listen to Your Lenses

Bose Frames

While your average pair of sunglasses focuses on protecting your eyes in style, Bose Frames add something extra to the formula: sound. Each temple holds a tiny audio system designed to be audible only to the wearer. That means no headphones are needed to enjoy music or a podcast on your commute. “Frames provide an open-ear personal listening experience that allows the wearer to enjoy content without closing themselves off to the world around them,” the company says. The sunglasses connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth so, if you choose, you can receive audio alerts and notifications from apps. —Patrick Lucas Austin
