Engadget Review

Embedding wireless headphones into a pair of sunglasses without bone conduction sounds like a fantastic idea. Too bad the Bose Frames offer basically no bass and are easily overpowered by environmental noise. Upcoming gesture-based interaction and audio AR could make the Frames more helpful, but those features aren’t live yet. For now, you’re better off waiting on an updated model or till the promised features launch.
