Back in 2018, audio company Bose announced the Frames line of audio sunglasses. At the time, it consists of the Alto and Rondo models. Now, the company has announced three more additions to the line, called Tempo, Tenor and Soprano. The three new audio shades, like the first two, don’t make use of bone conduction tech despite their looks.
And of the three, the Bose Frames Tempo looks to be the star product. It comes with 22mm drivers and a battery life of eight hours, which charge using USB-C. Being a sports-oriented model, it also comes with sweat, weather, scratch, and shatter resistance, as well as three different-shaped nose pads. Bose also says they fit under most protective helmets.
The other two, the Bose Frames Tenor and Soprano, are more like improvements on the Alto and Rondo. Both come with 16mm drivers and a five-and-a-half-hour battery life. They also feature improved bass response over the original two models, but use the same pogo-pin charger as them.
Funnily enough, despite one model being clearly superior to the others, all three Bose Frames models costs US$250 (~RM1039). All three also have additional lens options that you can pay for. No word on when they will make their way locally, but considering you can get the Alto and Rondo from the company’s official store on Lazada, these three new ones will probably make their way here at some point in the future.
