Unboxing the JBL Soundgear Frames

I'm Andy from MrYouWho and today I'm thrilled to introduce to you the JBL Soundgear Frames which I was just listening to. These stylish and innovative sunglasses are set to revolutionize how we experience music and stay connected on the go. It's a new product from JBL and I'm super excited to be reviewing them.

If you wish to watch the full YouTube video please watch below:

Today's video starts with unboxing the JBL Soundgear Frames to see what's included in the package. Then we'll put them on and use them out and about so you can see how they work, including looking at key features such as sound quality, noise cancellation, build quality, and overall functionality. We'll also test out the sound in various real-world scenarios like the beach and walking so you can see exactly how they work.

Design & Build Quality

These sunglasses come in three unique colors: Amber, Pearl, and Onyx. You can choose between the round or square frames to match your style. I've gone for the Onyx Square frames today and don't they look absolutely sleek? The design of the Soundgear Frames is not only fashionable but also highly functional. Made from durable thermoplastic materials, these frames are lightweight, hypoallergenic, and ensure a snug fit for various face shapes and sizes. They fit so well that you barely feel them on your head, and they look really cool too.

Key Features Overview

Now let's talk about what really makes these sunglasses truly special: JBL's open sound technology. Each temple of the frames conceals JBL's unique Ultra 25 mm by 9 mm high amplitude rectangular speakers. They are designed with a three-layer diaphragm and a special algorithm for bass enhancement and frequency division processing. This technology delivers an immersive and engaging audio experience while leaving your ears completely open, so you can still hear everything around you. This open-ear design is perfect for activities like walking on the beach, hiking, or simply enjoying a sunny day in the park without missing out on your surroundings.

Hands-free Calling & Noise Cancellation

One of the great things about the Soundgear Frames is their hands-free calling capability. They feature dual-mic arrays, one on each temple, combined with dual-mode environmental noise cancellation and nonlinear echo suppression algorithms. This ensures high-quality conversations whether you're taking a call while walking or chatting with friends during a beach day. Conversations are always crystal clear, making it a joy to use for calls.

Real-world Testing

I've been running along Kangaroo Point with these glasses on and they are fantastic. Firstly, they cut out all the glare from outside, and the sound quality is immersive. The noise cancellation is excellent, and the sunglasses are great for running, walking, and general outdoor use. Even in light rain, the IP54 rating ensures they are water-resistant and keep working perfectly.

Sound Quality

The music quality on these is exceptional. The JBL Soundgear Frames deliver rich, full sound that enhances your listening experience. You get to enjoy your favorite tunes with impressive clarity while staying aware of your surroundings. The speakers deliver a balanced sound profile of bass, mids, and highs, making every song a delight to listen to. Whether you're listening to upbeat tracks or soothing melodies, the sound quality remains top-notch. The frames provide an immersive audio experience that is hard to match with other audio sunglasses.

Battery Life & Quick Charge

Another great feature is the battery life. The glasses offer 8 hours of playtime, giving you calls and music through an entire day of work or fun. If you need a quick boost, a 10-minute charge provides 2 hours of playtime. This is perfect for busy days when you're constantly on the move or need a quick boost of battery life.

Connectivity & App Integration

I connected these glasses to my phone via Bluetooth 5.2, and the connection is stable and fast, allowing you to enjoy your music and calls without any issues. The glasses are also compatible with the JBL Headphones app, where you can customize your sound settings, noise cancellation, and music profiles. There are six preset EQ curves to choose from, ensuring you get the best audio to your liking.

Control Features & User Experience

The control features are simple and intuitive. Open the temples to turn the speakers on and close them to turn them off. When you're wearing them, just tap the JBL logo to adjust the volume, answer a call, or skip a song. The controls are seamless and easy to use, making the Soundgear Frames a joy to wear.

Outdoor Performance Test

Next, I took them for a stroll around the city. The hands-free calling feature is perfect because I can make calls without worrying about pressing a button or having earbuds in my ears. The dual-mic array ensures that my voice is clear, even in noisy environments.

UV Protection & Prescription Compatibility

The JBL Soundgear Frames are not just about sound; they also offer protection from the sun. The polycarbonate UV blocking lenses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. If you need prescription lenses, you can get the lenses changed to fit your prescription, making these sunglasses even more versatile.

Conclusion & Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the JBL Soundgear Frames are a fantastic product. The quality of sound is excellent, the ability to control the mics and music from the frames is very convenient, and the comfort and fit are outstanding. These sunglasses are perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy music and stay connected while being active. Whether you're at the beach, hiking, or just out for a walk, the Soundgear Frames are a great investment.

I never received my purchase

Great watch, great price.

This is a quality wrist watch, not a cheap imitation. It looks just as it is advertised, it keeps impeccable time, and the weight of the watch feels like it should, solid and is an asset to my daily dress wardrobe.

Order missing

Well I haven't recieved it yet, keeping up with the tracking and hope to get it soon, thanks

Still waiting ............

I was emailed a request by the merchant to rate the ring I purchased three weeks ago. However, I have yet to receive. I am still going to rate my purchase Five stars in hopes that I receive my ring and it looks as good in person as it does in pictures. I realize this item is delivered from China and
hope that’s the reason for its delay. Fingers crossed.
