Nothing in or on your ears

That’s the difference, a revolutionary Bose Open Ear Audio™ design that frees you from headphones so you can hear and interact with the world around you, all while discreetly listening to music. An exclusive, wafer-thin acoustic package hidden in the temples produces lifelike sound that’s fuller and deeper than the original Bose Frames, while an innovative design drastically reduces the spread of sound beyond you. It comes together for a jaw-dropping experience that only you’re aware of.

Luxury in the details

High-gloss Black. Stainless-steel hinges. Polarized lenses that won’t easily scratch or shatter. Bose sunglasses are crafted from ultramodern materials to both look and feel luxurious. Because that’s how you should look and feel when you wear them.

It starts with the fit, fully refined from the original Bose sunglasses to match a wide range of face shapes. It continues with the lightweight, smooth-as-silk nylon frame, both lushly comfortable and decidedly durable.

Calls, too?


Take calls on the go, hands-free. Our latest audio sunglasses feature an advanced microphone system, designed to focus on your voice while reducing the sound of the wind and noise around you.

With seamless capacitive touch and an integrated motion sensor, these rectangular Bluetooth sunglasses’ controls are as modern as their concept. Slide your finger along the right temple to adjust the volume. Double-tap to access your phone’s voice assistant. And when you’re done, take them off and place them upside down. They’ll sense the movement and turn off.
