    Meet Bose Frames! Sunglasses with a Soundtrack. The first audio sunglasses with built-in Bose speakers for an immersive audio experience unlike any other. A revolutionary personal audio experience hidden inside two classic designs, each enriched with premium accents and materials. Play music, take calls, and enjoy the sun with UVA/UVB protection. Bose Frames Alto  feature a classic angular shape and commanding lenses.

    With the Bose Frames Rondo Audio Sunglasses, Bose provides functional fashion that combines a personal audio experience with modern shades. As a pair of sunglasses, the Frames Rondo give you a black frame with black tinted, non-polarized lenses that provide UVA/UVB protection. The Frames Rondo is designed with a rounded retro shape and smaller frame than their counterpart, the Frames Alto. Like their counterpart, the Rondo features comfortable nylon rims, durable metal hinges, and shatter/scratch-resistant lenses.

    As a pair of headphones, the Frames Rondo are engineered to provide you with personal sound without putting anything in, on, or over your ears. You have total access to the world around you, as the built-in acoustic chambers direct your favorite music towards your ears and away from everyone else. A single button on the stem gives you the ability to control power, playback, accept or reject hands-free calls, or interact with your mobile device's digital assistant.

    Bose AR Compatible
    The Frames Rondo utilize built-in sensors to make them compatible with Bose AR, an augmented reality platform that lets your Frames interact with a host of Bose AR apps. You can participate in games, receive audio navigation cues, or even get help with a workout. The Bose AR app is available for iOS and Android devices via the App Store or on Google Play.
