Bose Alto Overview

With the Bose Frames Alto Audio Sunglasses, Bose provides functional fashion that combines a personal audio experience with modern shades. As a pair of sunglasses, the Frames Alto give you a black frame with black tinted, non-polarized lenses that provide UVA/UVB protection. The Frames Alto are designed with a classic angular shape and larger frame than their counterpart, the Frames Rondo. Like their counterpart, the Alto features comfortable nylon rims, durable metal hinges, and shatter/scratch-resistant lenses.

As a pair of headphones, the Frames Alto are engineered to provide you with personal sound without putting anything in, on, or over your ears. You have total access to the world around you, as the built-in acoustic chambers direct your favorite music towards your ears and away from everyone else. A single button on the stem gives you the ability to control power, playback, accept or reject hands-free calls, or interact with your mobile device's digital assistant.

Bose AR Compatible

The Frames Alto utilize built-in sensors to make them compatible with Bose AR, an augmented reality platform that lets your Frames interact with a host of Bose AR apps. You can participate in games, receive audio navigation cues, or even get help with a workout. The Bose AR app is available for iOS and Android devices via the App Store or on Google Play.

Bose Alto Reviews

Deal breaker

By Oz
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-06-14

I bought these about a year after they came out, they were perfect for a while. The sound quality is amazing for open ear audio, but, when you get sweaty, they fall down easily. And after only two years of owning them, the ribbon cable that connects the two sides of the sunglasses broke. So they don't function at all anymore. The lenses they come with are even worse, you have to spend an extra 30$ on the polarized lenses for them to be any good. Two stars.

Our Son loved this gift!

I bought my glasses a few weeks ago and got them to notice they were huge and wouldn't fit so I am now waiting for the smaller pair to come in even tho I'm disappointed y'all send a refurbished pair for something that hasn't even been used once and I still don't have a product to use
