  • Great alternative to earphones
    Reviewed by ANDA94 - December 7, 2019

    Wearing prescription glasses I assumed that I wouldn’t be able to use these, but with the Alto shape I can wear them over my prescription glasses easily with a comfortable fit. Lens quality is of optical standard so no problems with eye strain. They connected easily to the Bose connect app and charging with the magnetic connector is really easy with no fiddling around with finding the charging pad or getting the connector with the right orientation . A one touch button on the leg of the glasses makes it easy to change function like skipping to a new song. The glasses also have a built in speaker to let you take calls which is brilliant. Sound quality is amazing and you get great stereophonic effect that seems real and is as good as the best earphones. Sound quality is not quite as good as the best earphones but if you get headaches with earphones and you need to be aware of sounds around you, then this is a brilliant piece of kit. There are interchangeable lenses but only for different shades (polarised or blue shade). It’s a pity there’s not a clear lens option for people who have to wear prescription glasses, since you may already have prescription sunglasses underneath. I think though that for working indoors, having a clear lens option would suit everyone although I guess you could always pop the sunglass lenses out to just use the frame. Surprisingly, the sunglasses don’t come with a lens cloth. Battery life seems fine and even with the battery in the frame, the glasses seem light to wear that you’d hardly notice them. They come in a stylish very strong plastic case to keep them safe. Awesome product!

  • WOW!!! The sounds are AMAZING !!! Love these :)
    Reviewed by BoDorkSideSe - April 2, 2019

    These Bose, speaker glasses have been great. I've had them for about two months now and have been enjoying them very much. I really appreciate not having an ear bud in my ear or a headphone covering my ear. The sound these glasses project is very impressive. The sound surrounds your head and you feel like the sound is everywhere, not just coming from the glasses. The battery life is great. In the specs, they show a two hour runtime, but at 50% volume, I've been able to get 5-6 hours before needing a recharge. When you first power on the glasses, it tells you at what capacity the battery is currently at. The glasses were very easy to pair to my phone. I strongly recommend you try the glasses on for fit at you local electronics store where these are sold. I'm using the large and am thinking the small might be better for me. As with all Bose products I've owned, these glasses don't dissappoint and I am looking forward to the AI and other upgrades that are coming soon.

  • Almost perfect
    Reviewed by Alkatraz84 - January 10, 2019

    My Alto frames just arrived on Monday and I was blown away by the sound, I agree @ first they do sound very tinny, but after a while you’ll get used to it depending on your music genre. Two things I really didn’t like were that there was no cleaning cloth to accompany this glasses and basically no branding of the “BOSE” logo on the side of the frames other than a baby logo that get hidden behind your ear that no one will ever see. I wish AR was ready right out of the box, also from the videos is saw the glasses were supposed to have touch features but ended up getting a button under the right temple.not cool, but other than that...I’m pretty happy so far with my glasss. Only time will tell if I will keep these.

  • Great product
    Reviewed by Olu - July 14, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had this product for a few weeks now and the sound this product brings is just awesome and top notch. There is minimal to no leakage from the frames too. Also the fact that the lenses are interchangeable is really good feature as I'm not one for dark lenses. The app to connect is really nice although I would question why it is needed at all. The only thing is the frames are a bit too bulky. This is a personal thing though doesn't remove from the awesomeness of the product. I would really recommend this product. I hope they come in less bulky styles

  • Five Stars for Bose Frames Alto
    Reviewed by Behindthearc33 - March 11, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had the Bose Frames Alto for around a week and I am simply astonished with this product. After opening the product I had them set up and synced to my Iphone in less than five minutes. The set up was very easy and user friendly. I own many different pairs of sunglasses and the Bose Frames Alto are by far my favorite of my collection. The glasses in general are truly fashionable and the UVA/UVB protection is unlike any other pair of sunglasses that I own. The size large fits my head and face perfectly, but someone with a smaller head size will need the size small. The sides of the sunglasses are larger than most frames, but they are smaller than I had envisioned before I received the product. The sound quality is very good, but the bass could be a tad bit louder to overall enhance the listening experience. I have made multiple phone calls with the Bose Frame Alto since I have had them and everyone I have talked to said that it sounds crystal clear. I also enjoy the fact that when I am playing music on the Bose Frame Alto that I am the only one that can hear it except when it is turned up to max volume. Overall, I would recommend the Bose Frame Alto to everyone and there are no other sunglasses in my collection that compare to this product.
