Smart Glasses | The Glasses Of The Future | What Google Glasses Should Have Been?

Posted on Jan 20,2018 in Tech

Today, we’ll be reviewing the Bone Conduction Wireless Glasses.  Off the bat, they don’t look like the nerdish Google Glasses, and as we all know they failed becuase they just sucked. On the box it gives you a lot of different options when it comes to lenses, personally I chose the gray one. On the other side of the box you will see a list of technical specifications such as the type of speaker and the wireless range.

Now, let’s open the box and see what’s inside. First, we see a suede pouch where the glasses come in. It also comes with a Micro-USB chargers, earplugs, a pair of clear lenses, nose bridges, and lastly a user manual. Let’s open up the pouch and check out the glasses.

As you can see, they don’t look like “Smart” glasses, they more so look like Ray-Bans. Although, the quality isn’t there, but they don’t look that bad. You can also feel the bone conduction as you put them on. As you can see on the side, this is where the bone conduction works.

On the bottom , you have little buttons such as the power button, volume up and down, and the flap that opens up for the charger. As I mentioned before, these do come with a extra pair of lenses so you can switch them out to a clear lense.

Now, let’s get into the fun part. I just paired my phone to the glasses, it’s a very simple set up, all you have to do is go to your blue tooth settings and pair the device. Once it’s all paired up, you just turn on some tunes and let the glasses do take care of the rest. You’ll be able to hear the music while no one else does. That’s the magic of bone conduction.

Although, it isn’t a good idea to use these to commute in a subway or a loud place. Eventually the sound would get muffled out and then you wouldn’t be able to hear anything from them. However, they work in the office or if you’re just taking a stroll, these are good to completely zone out the outside world.

These glasses run for about $98, including the amount of functions that this has, including taking calls and being able to use Siri, it might be worth it. The manual says that a 2 hour charge will last you 3-4 hours continuously , however on standby it can last 10 days. Overall, if you really want to spend $100 on some bone conduction headphones, these are not that bad.
