Both Bose and Amazon launched eyewear products with integrated speakers in recent years. A somewhat different approach is taken by JLab Audio. JBuds Frames enables you to connect two genuine wireless open-ear speakers to the temples of your eyewear so that you can swap them from one standard glass to the other. The company has many silicone sleeves that support a number of temple sizes of the eyewear.

The 16.2mm drivers and an IPX4 waterproof rating are available in speakers weighing 11.7 g each. JLab says they can run with a single load for up to 8 hours, but you have the option of using just one speaker simultaneously to preserve battery life.

JBuds frames include buttons to change volume, switch between Signature and Bass Boost and accept or reject calls. Signature and Bass Boost EQ settings JLab’s earbuds are generally a good value for money, although we cannot talk about the audio quality of JBuds Frames without getting them tried.

In early spring the speakers should be ready. For $50 that is considerably less than Bose Frames and Amazon Echo Frames, JLabe plans to sell JBuds frames.
