The Best Audio Sunglasses for Listening to Music and Taking Phone Call

4 min readMay 4, 2022


If you tend to play hard, you need audio sunglasses that can keep up. “For the ultimate outdoor warrior, these sunglasses offer the premium listening experience that one would expect with Bose audio technology,” says Marisella Villano, owner of the Marvil Fit fitness studio in the Hamptons. “You will be unstoppable with these lightweight, polarized, and water-resistant shades.”

The Bose Frames Tempo has a matte finish and a battery life that lasts up to 8 hours. “The lenses are even interchangeable and the polycarbonate frames are prescription ready if you want that option,” Villano says. “Soft silicone nose pads will keep the frames snug while reducing friction against your skin when you are going all out in your workouts.” And the curved frame of the sunglasses also helps to keep them in place while also remaining comfortable.

The intuitive touch controls let you adjust the volume just by sliding your finger along the right temple, and you can access your phone’s voice assistant with a simple double-tap.

If you like to change styles, the Soundcore Frames Tour Bluetooth Audio Smart Glasses have almost a dozen different interchangeable frames. Using the quick release hinges, you can change to several different types and styles of frames- some with polarized lenses and others with blue-light filtering. “It’s easy to immerse yourself in the outdoors with this fun pair of shades, and the flexible hinges offer a more comfortable fit for wider faces,” Villano says.

The water-resistant frames last for up to 5.5 hours before they need to be charged. “Just tap on the audio temple to change tunes or take a call or go hands-free with the built-in audio assistant — and there is a privacy mode too, so no one will be able to listen in on your calls,” she says.

The cat-eye design and high gloss finish of the Bose Frames Soprano Smart Audio Sunglasses makes them a good choice if you’re looking for a more stylish look combined with a more luxurious feel. The polarized lenses resist scratches and are shatterproof, and they can block 99 percent of UVA/B rays. You can get up to 5.5 hours of listening time from a single charge, and control music and calls via the right temple of the sunglasses.

The Razor Anzu Smart Glasses are designed with both blue light lenses to help protect your eyes when staring at your digital devices and also polarized lenses for outdoor usage, so they can be swapped out depending on your needs. The IPX4 design means they can resist sweat and water splashes, so they’re great for working out. A single charge provides more than five hours of playtime, and the touch interface on the frame is used to control media and calls.

The classic aviator design is just one of several styles you can choose from with the Lucyd Lyte Bluetooth Smart Audio Sunglasses. “Talk about an upgrade in eyewear — these smart sunglasses offer lenses with polarization and UV protection with the integrated Bluetooth, connectable to your phone, laptop and smartwatch anytime,” Villano says. Two easy buttons on the front of the sunglass arm allow you to change songs or grab a call easily, and they offer up to an eight-hour battery life and recharge via a magnetic charger.”
