Bose brings speakers to sunglasses

The Bose Frames Tempo combines user convenience, eye protection and super sound for audiophiles or casual music listeners. Wearers can hear music and their surroundings simultaneously with high-performance sport sunglasses’ open-air design.

Lightweight and made from aerodynamic nylon polycarbonate, the sunglasses are scratch- and shatter-resistant and feature mirrored black polarized lenses. Three silicone nose pads are also included.

The two Bose speakers fit as if embedded in the user’s temples with flexible grips. Mesh side ports help keep out water and debris. Bose sunglasses are prescription-ready. Interchangeable lenses are for different light situations.
