Rated 5 out of 5 by from My prescription Rondo glasses I received my prescription glasses after about 2 weeks on order-can’t complain about that. I maxed out the options on the lenses and it was well worth it, (Progressive-Transition-upgraded coatings-the works) Only issue I’m having is tightness at the temple ends, just behind the ears. It connected flawlessly and immediately upgraded its software through the app., sound is fantastic and I’ve had no complaints while on the phone as far as clarity. The run time of 3 hours is about right, depending on your use during those 3 hours, talking on the phone seams to suck the life out the battery faster. Really would be better is they could last 6+ hours, I assume it’s the battery capacity in the temple arms, they must be small to accommodate the limited space. I am surprised the protective case for the glasses didn’t come with a little notch cut out to run the charging cord through so you can protect the glasses while charging. Quality materials were used to make the glasses and packaging. It also would be nice if you could view the user manual in the bose app. when the glasses aren’t connected to the app. Be sure to register your glasses with Bose if you purchase them. So far, the investment was worth it but time will tell if they stand up to the BOSE name.

How many devices can pair with Bose Frames at once? What happens if I have several Bluetooth®-enabled devices in my house?

Bose Frames 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 the next most recently connected device.

If you wish to connect to another device, even one previously paired, you must power off Bose Frames by flipping them upside down for two seconds. Then, press and hold the button on the right temple until you hear “Ready to connect” and the status light slowly blinks white.

How do I control the volume on Bose Frames?

You can adjust the volume by using Press & Turn volume control or by using the volume controls on your mobile device.

What is Press & Turn volume control?

Press & Turn volume control allows you to adjust the volume using the button on your Frames.

To adjust the volume, press and hold the button while turning your head. To increase, turn to the right. To decrease, turn to the left. Once you find the right volume level, let go of the button. To change the volume in larger intervals, turn your head slowly.

You hear a tone when the volume reaches the maximum or minimum level.

How do I enable Press & Turn volume control?

When you update your Frames in the Bose Connect app, follow the screens to turn on Press & Turn volume control.

To turn this feature on or off later, find Press & Turn Volume in the Settings menu in the Bose Connect app.
