From Bose to Razer: Best Bluetooth sunglasses for every budget | Technology News


Sunglasses are no longer just accessories that help you protect your eyes from harsh light. Thanks to the latest advancements in technology, there are now sunglasses that act as personal Bluetooth devices that could easily replace wireless earbuds and neckbands.

Compared to conventional wireless earphones, a sunglass-based Bluetooth device also looks more discreet, and it is also easy to travel with. Starting from big brands like Bose, a known entity in the audio peripherals, to affordable options, there is a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled sunglasses. These are also known as smart glasses and are available across various price ranges.

Here are the four unique Bluetooth-enabled audio sunglasses:

Bose Frames are easily the best and most high-end Bluetooth-enabled sunglasses available in India. They come in five interesting styles – Tenor, Soprano, Tempo, Alto, and Rondo. The Bose Frames start at around Rs 19,000. The main difference between these models is the design, and all five variants offer features like premium build, and they are powered by an exclusive Bose OpenAudio technology.

You can take calls, listen to music, and resume listening to your audiobook using these smart sunglasses. Similarly, these also come with hot-swap lenses, which makes it easy to replace the standard lens with a coloured one or powered lens. Using the Bose Music app, available on both Android and iOS platforms, users can control the various aspects of the Bose Frames Bluetooth sunglasses.
