These smart sunglasses actually turned out to be better than I was expecting. That being said, they are far from perfect, but would probably be adequate for most people.
The sound quality is actually not bad. I wouldn’t say it has bass, but the audio doesn’t feel as flat as I was expecting. It has some dimension. The audio is loud enough to hear while riding around town on a bike or scooter. It does feel like a surround sound engulfing your ears with sound. That being said, it’s also loud enough for everyone around you to hear it clearly. Even in privacy mode, it’s still noticeable.
An issue I did notice is that sometimes it does have issues connecting to the Soundcore app, which also for some reason causes the audio quality to be very distorted and sound worse than a pair of dollar store headphones.
Phone calls are actually really good. The microphones do an amazing job at picking up my voice with ease and it sounds like a standard phone call on both ends.
The glasses themselves are polarized and quite dark and are great for using on a sunny day. The bad part about these being sunglasses, is that you need to take them off when you go inside, unless you want to walk around in the dark, while having everyone look at you weird.
They are lightweight and mostly look like standard sunglasses at first glance. However, they don’t fold up too well. The touch controls are adjustable in the app and do work well.
It’s very easy to switch frames in the stems in a matter of seconds if you want to match with your outfit for the day.
Overall, these are good smart glasses (albeit not very smart, just audio) and are great for people who want to hear music while also having their ears open to their surroundings.
These are a glimpse into the future of technology, into ergonomic design and into how we entertain ourselves while socializing. I did not expect these to be as super as they are. First the packaging is just amazing. So well thought out and such high quality presentation. You get everything compact and separated. The frame handles, the actual shades, the carrying case and the charger. All you do is unto and snap the pieces together. It connects via Bluetooth or the app and once paired with your phone automaticall connects and let's you know via a beautiful notification once you open the handles and put on the shades. To reset or reboot you take them off close handles and reopen. The features are simply fantastic. You can use voice or touch, touching is easy. You swipe backwards on the handles while wearing to skip songs etc. The sunglasses are average size and though I usually like mine oversized, these give great dark coverage and look so cool. My biggest surprise was the sound. When they say surround sound they mean it. It's amazing the sound quality you hear, they are as good as having earbuds shoved into your ear canal and just as loud. You would think listening to music in an open ear situation would lack intimacy but it DOES NOT. You are your own walking DJ and party. The sound quality while on a call is as good as standing next to the person. I mean honestly, everyone sees cool sunglasses and you are literally walking, immersed in your own entertainment experience. They are also lightweight. I mean I am more pleasantly surprised than I am happy. These are awesome. They should be a great gift to yourself and if course an awesome gift to anyone else. If things change I'll come back and update my review but as of now I'm looking into another pair.
Lets get right to the audio quality here. I have a bit of a different take than many others that review these glasses and it's important to properly set your expectations if you are thinking about purchasing any pair of audio glasses. The audio comes from little speakers on the arms of the glasses that sit on the outside of your ears. There is simply no way the audio from a setup like this will be at the same level as something like a pair of earbuds that go inside your ears or a full pair of headphones that completely cover your ears. And that comes down to sound isolation. The sound isolation by covering up your ears and cutting off the sounds of the outside world helps to make the audio quality good with earbuds or headphones. That being said one of the reasons why you would purchase audio glasses like these is that you DON'T have any sound isolation. You will still hear all of the sounds of the outside world. That's exactly one of the biggest selling points of these things. For example you can be driving in your car or walking down the street safely as you listen to something like a podcast while still being able to hear a car horn or someone yelling at you to "watch out!" as you cross the street.
Now I have compared these to several other "smart glasses" from Bose and Ray-Ban stories and in my opinion these glasses from Soundcore sound better than those not to mention the Soundcore glasses are less expensive as well. So if you temper your expectations to the type of audio quality you can get from a pair of glasses, these glasses are some of the best you can get.
I give these glasses 4 stars not because they have 4 star audio quality in general. I give them 4 stars because they have the best quality for the type of device they are. You aren't going to get massive thumping bass from a big bombastic hip hop track. You won't get super detailed high notes from a violin of your favorite classical music track. What you do get is a great device for listening to podcasts. Voices are nice and clear. Phone calls are also nice and clear. I have talked to people on the phone with these glasses and have been told my voice sounded just as good as when I use my bluetooth ear buds.
These glasses fill a particular niche and I think they do them well. Better than Bose and better than Ray-Ban.
You need to temper your expectations regarding sound quality with all audio glasses. There is nothing covering your ears or sitting inside your ears. Because of this open air type of setup the audio quality suffers a bit. With that in mind these glasses from Soundcore sound better than other ones on the market such as the Bose glasses.
The touch controls and the voice commands work very well. Talking on the phone was nice and clear. Sound quality was perfect for things like podcasts. Because of the open ear design you aren't cut off from the outside world. This makes these ideal for using in the car or walking down a busy street. You'll have no problem hearing things like a car horn or people yelling out at you.
The quality of the glasses themselves are quite good. As good as the Ray-Ban Stories glasses. With this particular version, the glasses are a bit on the small size so if you have a larger head you might want to look at one of the other pair of frames Soundcore has.
