If you are walking or cycling on a shared path that may be other pedestrians (or worse, vehicles), you need to hear what is going on around you. And that̵
This isn’t Bose’s first foray into the world of Sunglasses with head speakers– In fact, since 2018, the company has had some pairs in the Alto and Rondo frames. But for 2020 it got bigger and better with three new couples: the stylish tenor and the soprano alongside the sporty pace.
All three pairs offer more bass response and are more comfortable to carry than their predecessors – they also cost $ 50 more and cost $ 250. However, that’s not bad business for decent sunglasses and headphones.
The two elegant pairs of tenor and soprano have 16 mm drivers and have a battery life of five and a half hours. They’re charged using the same proprietary cable as the originals, so they’re a great upgrade option for anyone with OGs and ready for something new.
The pace, on the other hand, is sportier in every respect. They have 22mm drivers for better sound, 8 hours of battery life for all-day sessions, and are USB-C charged. They are also sweat, water, scratch and break resistant. It sounds like you can beat them to death and they still won’t die. At the same price as Alto and Rondo, these seem to be the group’s clear winners, assuming you don’t mind the athletic aesthetic.
All three new pairs support integration with Siri and Google Assistant, dual mic arrays for phone calls, and touch controls for volume on the side. According to Bose, each new image supports a dynamic EQ that also adjusts to volume to reduce distortion at higher volumes. Separate lenses are also available as add-ons.
All three new sets (along with both existing models) are now available from various retailers.
