Be aware folks, these are tiny speakers that clip on your frames, I may as well have walked up to the nearest drain and thrown £25 down there. Of course it’s my own fault for not doing my homework. If you have any kind of hearing loss and are looking for an open ear option , then get yourself some bone conducting headphones, these things have to be one of the worst ideas of all time, a personal music option that will annoy everyone around you.

This a cheap solution to BOSE sunglasses, however the BOSE have much better sound, at about 8 times the price though.These miss some fullness and bass, but they are great for listening to podcasts, spoken word and background music. If you want immersive sound, you’re better to go to an earbud.Still, these are handy for the office, where i can have some light music or podcast playing in my ears, and still hear surrounding noise, while working the day away!

First off, If you want a pair of speakers to clip to your glasses, these are probably the ones.But… It’s just not quite as good as I had hoped.Nothing really “wrong” with them, but…The downsides are:-They don’t necessarily stick in place on my glasses all that well. I’m sure I could put some sort of filler in the clip to make them stay better, but then it’s more trouble to put them on and off.-There is a bit more weight to your glasses…-The sound is just ok at best. They don’t really get in front of your ears. So if you’re in a quiet area and want to listen to a podcast, they work. But I think you’d be hard pressed to enjoy much music or anything in an area with a lot of other ambient noise…

These things are exactly what I’ve been wanting for years! An open back audio solution that’s relatively inconspicuous. Lots of nice modern wireless buds have pass through audio but then I’ve still got buds in my ears and that’s only comfortable for so long. I can’t claim these things are perfectly comfortable, I do feel the little plastic bits on the side of my face, but it’s pretty darn tolerable. I kind of want this same concept but with fabric or silicone straps to secure them to the frames. But for now, and for the sale price I got these at, I’m absolutely not complaining.Now, in terms of volume, I can have these at roughly half volume and I’m able to hear a podcast fine and they’re not audible to people in close proximity. At this volume you’d have to have your ear about six to eight inches from my head to hear the slightest hint of a sound.Audio quality? Don’t buy these if you’re looking for a quality listening experience. These can do music, but it’s gonna be a little tinny and low on bass. Audio quality is the sacrifice we make for discretion in open back audio solutions. I think someday products like this will be able to offer a higher fidelity experience, but without custom fitting the technology just isn’t there, yet. Perfectly fine for calls, podcasts and more casual listening though. I’m certainly happy enough with them for what they are. And for however much it’s worth, they do sound a bit better than bone conduction headphones.These are a dream come true for me, I can put them on any set of frames and take a stroll while staying aware of my surroundings and I won’t bother anyone else around me. I’m stunned by the low price and quality of these tiny frame-mounted speakers.
This is an amazing little gadget! If you see this on for $29.99, I HIGHLY recommend getting it for someone who can’t wear ear/headphones, and isn’t a major audiophile. I would say the sound is equivalent to about $15-$20 earbuds. Bass isn’t super amazing, but I personally don’t expect that from bud-less earphones.I can still hear my surroundings fairy well. At max volume I can’t hear my surroundings very well and people around me can hear a very faint sound- take that how you will.I can’t see them in my peripherals, and they’re lightweight enough for me to hardly notice they’re there.I will say that if these were on for regular price ($60) I might be a little more hesitant on purchasing, but on sale? Amazing. Chef’s kiss. A treat.
