The original Bose Frames debuted in 2019 and quickly became one of our most popular products. Now the sequel is here. Thoughtfully refined and strikingly elegant, Bose Frames Tenor flaunt polarised lenses and premium craftsmanship, while exclusive Bose Open Ear Audio™ technology produces sound you’d never expect from sunglasses. It’s a jaw-dropping experience that leaves you free to engage with the world around you, all while discreetly listening to music. As Esquire noted in choosing Bose Frames for Best Smart Accessory in their 2020 Gadget Guide, “These things are about the coolest wearable tech out there”.

A modern icon

A refined square frame with a distinctive keyhole bridge, Bose Frames Tenor are for those who choose style over fashion. Because, as we all know, style is forever. They play fuller, deeper and longer than the original version, too, with the rechargeable battery now offering up to 5.5 hours of play time.

Nothing in or on your ears

That’s the difference: a revolutionary Bose Open Ear Audio™ design that frees you to 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, while an innovative design drastically reduces the spread of sound beyond you.

Luxury in the details

High-gloss Black. Stainless-steel hinges. Polarised lenses that won’t easily scratch or shatter. Bose sunglasses are crafted from ultra-modern 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.

Bose Frames can be connected to one device at a time.

Bose Frames also 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 to connect to the next most recently connected device.

The button is also used to power off Bose Frames. Simply press and hold the button until you hear the power off tone, then let go to turn off the device.
