These bluetooth glasses fit the bill for that purpose.
Build quality seems alright. Arms are plastic though.
For most guys, definitely get the Alto. The Rondo seems to be very small to wear. For people with smaller heads, the rondo might be fine for you.
These seem to be decent at blocking the sun. But there are pairs of analog glasses that do a better job in this price range.
It comes with a carrying case and a Magnetic USB charge cable. The magnetic part clips to one of the arms to charge. Similar to what you would see on some Macbook pro computers.
You can make phone calls on these glasses as well. Which is always nice.
You can simply turn these off by flipping them upside down. They will shut off after a few minutes.
How is the sound? Decent for what it is. It's sufficient enough. But don't expect to get the sound of the Quiet comfort 35's or anything. I think some people expect too much from specific devices that are physically not capable.
There are speakers on each arm that fire on to your ear.
There is sound leakage when you put the volume high. It's not bad unless the person is within a few feet away. The claim that only you can hear the sound is pretty much half true.
Battery life seems alright. But don't expect this to last anywhere close to a full pair of wireless headphones.
Would I reccomend these? Yes if you want glasses that block out the sun, and have the bluetooth capability.
But like I said, understand the limitations of this product before buying. It's up to you if you want to buy this product.
My main purpose was to use them for walking the dog and golf (both practice and during a round).
I have had them a week and thought I would provide a quick review.
When I first opened the box, I was slightly disappointed since they don't look like high end sunglasses. The frames are a mat finish and kind of look like 3D glasses from DisneyWorld. The case is pretty large and the bows look "thick".
However, once I put them on my reservations disappeared.
The quality of the lens seems very good and provides a clear, shape image on par with my Maui Jim's that I use for golf. My concerns about the thickness of the bows didn't play out either since the glasses feel very comfortable on my face.
I do wish the nose piece had padding or a piece of rubber, but I didn't have any issues with them slipping.
I was very impressed with the sound from the speakers and the fact that no one else could hear the music. I played golf on a windy day and never had issues hearing the music (or my partners cuss). More importantly, they couldn't hear what I was listening to.
Now, don't expect to get great bass or anything since there is only so much you can do with speakers that aren't covering or in your ears, but I was very happy with the sound.
Battery life was very good. I had the volume so it was comfortable for me and they lasted the whole round (just a touch over 4 hours). I didn't play continuous music, since I did pause it once in a while, but I am sure I listened for 3 hours easy.
The other thing that really impressed me was the bluetooth range. I left my phone in my bag and I often would be 25 yards or more from the bag with no loss of connection.
When I did get too far away, the frames told me and repaired when I got close enough.
The ability to pause with the button was great and I could adjust the volume from my Apple watch.
I think the cons are the looks of the frames and the special charging cable. Wish they had used a micro USB or something other than the special charging cable. Not sure where to buy extras since i know I will want to be able to charge them in multiple locations.
I do recommend these.
Case is nice and functional.
pulled out the frames - initial thought was damn - these things are gas station cheap! really the frames appear and feel real cheap. for $200 I would expect RayBan material. They look like RayBan wayfarers on steroids big eyes kinda not my style, but I got these for golfing and the Golfshot App and its AR capabilities - will try this feature out soon.
