  • Bose is known for their high-end speakers, but now it's putting its tech into sunglasses.

  • Are they any good, or are they just a gimmick?

  • Let's find out.

  • I'll admit, when I first heard about these audio sunglasses, I thought they were kind of lame.

  • But when I put it on for the first time and actually heard music coming out of it, I was shocked.

  • I even let my coworkers try it on, and they had the same reaction.

  • Holy s---.

  • Am I gonna see something?

  • - It's weird, right? - That's so weird.

  • Does it just play music?

  • Oh, my God.

  • I was also really impressed with the style of these sunglasses.

  • Bose offers two frames: the Alto, a bigger, more square frame, and then the ones that I have, the Rondo, a smaller and more round frame.

  • So how do these audio sunglasses work?

  • They connect via Bluetooth.

  • Just download the Bose Connect app and press the button on your sunglasses.

  • You'll hear a voice telling you which device it's connected to and what your battery percentage is.

  • The connectivity is also really fast.

  • Once I put on my sunglasses and click the button, I'm instantly connected to my device and I can start listening to my music.

  • The sound quality is very clear.

  • But if you're looking for a nice bass, you're not going to get it with these.

  • Since the speakers sit on the end of the temples of the glasses, the bass is hard to translate.

  • Not to mention the temples will be bulky.

  • But I found that when I listened to my music like this, I could hear the bass a little better.

  • Obviously, I'm not gonna be walking around listening to music like this, but the point of these sunglasses is to hear your surroundings but also listen to your music.

  • In a quiet room, music sounds good when I'm at 60% volume.

  • But when I'm out on the street, it's a little harder to hear the music, even if I crank the volume up to 100%.

  • So can other people hear music from these headphones?

  • Maybe if you were in a small, quiet elevator.

  • But in a loud, noisy environment like this, they won't hear it.

  • There's also just one button on these sunglasses.

  • With one click, you can pause and play a song or accept and end a call.

  • Double-click to skip a song, triple-click to go back to a song, and hold down to activate the voice assistant.

  • One big feature I wish they had was a volume control.

  • And I wish the case charged the sunglasses.

  • A huge missed opportunity here.

  • The battery life for these isn't the greatest: only three hours of continuous listening.

  • They charge using a unique magnetic USB cable, which can also be used with a portable battery pack.

  • And they take about two hours to charge to 100%.

  • The material of these sunglasses are kind of lightweight and they feel a little plasticky.

  • If you look closely, there's a matte finish and it's almost like it's translucent.

  • Even though these are lightweight, they're heavy enough to feel uncomfortable after 15 minutes of wear.

  • As you can see, there are dents on my nose.

  • These sunglasses have an IPX2 rating, meaning they can handle some splashes and light rain.

  • But I wish these were water-resistant so I could wear them when I'm in the water.

  • This is pretty disappointing, because Snap's Spectacles 2 came out last year and have an IPX7 rating, making them water-resistant and, according to Snap, can go under shallow water for a short period of time.

  • As sunglasses, they do their job well.

  • They block out the sun, Bose says they are shatter- and scratch-resistant, and they have UVA and UVB protection.

  • As for the price, they cost $200.

  • The price is pretty high, especially when the battery life is short, the case isn't a charging case, and there's little water resistance.

  • So, these sunglasses would be great for strolling down the street, riding a bike, sunbathing, or if you just don't like having anything in your ears.

  • But it wouldn't be great for wearing them in the pool or in the water, wearing them at night or indoors, or wearing them for a long time.

  • So while it was nice to not have to pack another thing in my bag, and I used my AirPods less, I don't think these can replace headphones completely, because they don't have the best sound quality or battery life.

  • Overall rating: 3/5.

  • What do you think?

  • Would you rock these or would you save yourself $200?

  • Let us know in the comments.
