Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOUND QUALITY IS INCREDIBLE I got these after a patient at our eye clinic brought his in to show us.. The sound quality is like nothing you've ever heard in your life and yet it doesn't cancel out the noise of the world. I love that when I'm driving I can talk on the phone with them and also hear if someone happens to honk perfectly. I also love that I can listen to music and still have a normal conversation. It's like having a song in your head but actually knowing all the words and melody perfectly. INCREDIBLE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discreet and private Nobody else can hear what you are listening to. Unless, it’s an office or library environment. In a cafe it is perfect and nothing can be heard over the whirring of the overhead fans. Even in a library with pin drop silence if you take a seat at least five or more feet away you should be able to listen without disturbing.

What is the range of the Bluetooth performance of Bose Frames?

The Bluetooth connection for Bose Frames is capable of stable operation at up to 30 ft (9 m). Performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls or metal, interference from Wi-Fi or other wireless devices, and device manufacturers’ Bluetooth implementations.

How many devices can pair with Bose Frames at once? What happens if I have several Bluetooth enabled devices in my house?

Bose Frames keep track of the last eight devices to have paired and connected with them, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired.

When in Bluetooth mode, Bose Frames search for and connect to the most recently connected active Bluetooth-enabled device. If that device is unavailable, Bose Frames will attempt the next most recently connected device.

If you wish to connect to another device, even one previously paired, you must power off Bose Frames by flipping them upside down for two seconds. Then, press and hold the button on the right temple until you hear “Ready to connect,” and the status light slowly blinks White.

What apps work with Bose Frames?

Since Bose Frames use Bluetooth connectivity, you can access any app that’s on your mobile device. Some examples include:

Music services like Spotify® and Apple Music
Voice communication apps like Skype and WhatsApp
Navigation apps like Google Maps or Waze

Then you’ll have access to a showcase of Bose AR-enhanced apps with links to download them. iPhone, iPad, and Android apps are available now, with more in development.
