The Best Inventions of 2021

Audio eyewear—that is, specs equipped with speakers—is undeniably useful for glasses-wearers. The problem: most options require you to commit to a single pair of readers that can cost as much as $250. JBuds Frames ($49) are an affordable alternative—a pair of wireless attachments that slide onto the arms of almost any pair of glasses, transforming them into a set of open-ear headphones. They’re easily swapped if your lenses become scratched or if you simply want to change up your look. Whatever the case, they direct sound into your ear without masking your surroundings or annoying your neighbors (unless you really crank it up). —Alison Van Houten
