If you’ve never been a fan of cramming small speakers into your ears just to listen to music, you’re probably aware of alternative open-ear solutions like bone-conduction headphones or sunglasses with audio ports. Over the years, we have seen many proposals in this direction, but they have never been particularly accessible. Trying to cope with this angle, JLab introduces its new JBuds frameworks in order to transform your existing glasses into integrated audio glasses.
The open-ear frames consist of two independent modules that adhere to the temples of your existing glasses. Instead of using bone conduction technology, pimples make it easier with a descending speaker designed to direct music to your ears without passing sound to loved ones.

JBuds Frames come with multiple ear tips to ensure a snug fit.
These Bluetooth audio devices are IPX4 rated and can be used alone. They also have buttons on board that can accept / reject calls, adjust the volume and even change the equalizer settings. Finally, they are said to last up to 8 hours on a single charge.
JBuds Frames are priced at $ 50 and will go on sale in early spring. At such a low price, they strongly undermine offers like Bose Frames, which cost $ 250 – now we just have to see how the sound quality is obtained.
