These sound surprisingly good. Too bad the battery life isn't up to today's standards.

The Alto and the *Rondo both sound good, tho' the *Rondo aren't the prettiest pair of glasses. Battery life is ok for first gen. The second gen have closer to 6hrs. All in all, this is a good deal that I'd buy again.

They are great for a bike ride, it's much more confortable than wearing my AfterShokz + Sunglasses

These will look best for people with longer hair that can hide the gigantic arms.

These are great. I got them during the last sale. Easily my favourite pair of headphones for walking/biking

Same here, picked up during last sale - great for me for walking mostly during summer when it's too warm for QC35 over ears.

They're also great for keeping you aware of what's happening around you since they aren't noise cancelling or anything of the sort.

Got these from the last sale. They sound great. I'm only scared of sound leakage.

Can someone enlighten me on how these are better than a pair of ray bans and air pods?

Genuine question
I work in a job where I want to listen to music or a podcast while doing work and need to be aware of my surroundings; and having earphones in my ears would not appear professionally. In this case, the bose frames with clear prescription glasses work very well.

Edit: And you are not getting a pair of Raybans and airpods for $125

I assume you need to buy the lenses as well? So it's $124 for the frame + lenses?

Might be a dumb question. Do they come with default lenses or is this literally only the frame?

My ears can't deal with in-ears, so this sounds pretty cool, but I'm so inactive these days I don't think I have enough situations where these would be useful.

The Amazon listing clearly says $124.99 for frame only. There are pricing options shown with different frame/lens combinations

How well do they stay on while biking? Do they slip much? thanks

I think these are cool and love the idea of being able to hear things around me.

I've watched a few reviews and it's concerning where the speakers sit w/o going in store to try them on IMO.

The base frames come with black transparent non polarized lenses, if you get frames with other lenses you get a second pair of more specialized finished lenses.

It depends on your own headshape. I got the large size first which did slip a lot. So I got the small one after that and it's fine.

The main difference is the size of the arms
