- Bose Frames Audio Sunglasses
Bose debuted an audio gadget this year that combined two things you love dearly into one: cool sunglasses and wireless earbuds. If you throw a pair of these Bose Frames on during a sunny day spent outside, the frames themselves will play music, streamed from your phone via a Bluetooth connection, exclusively for your ears.
We promise, no one else will be able to hear your music playing. The speakers are that good. If you don’t love this frame shape, check out the Rondo style, with rounded edges.
