ECHO FRAMES (Latest Price): https://amzn.to/34ZYgix
Amazon finally released their Echo Frames smart glasses and these are very interesting. These glasses take a slightly different approach and rather than showing a display to look at, these leverage the use of audio. In this video, I dive into how these glasses work, who would buy them, and what the future of smart glasses looks like.

Some additional review notes:
Lenses go here
Don’t close all the way
Speaker sounds like my MP3 player from 2005
Absolutely no bass at all
Noise bleed test
Can you hear it in a loud environment?
Status light is barely visible on frames (works well in my opinion)
Sound is pretty bad
Sounds weird at first – hard to identify where it is coming from (very unnatural)
VIP notifications allow you to mute notifications from people or apps
Touch pad was a good idea
Double press action button to mute mic and notifications
Notifications are nice. Easily the most sleek way to get notifications. You never need to look anywhere, and they are super comfortable
Glasses are very comfortable. I forget I have them on sometimes
Alexa always tries to get the last word in with a “did you know” – then tries to plug something or get you to buy stuff on Amazon
CONCLUSION: Will these be a big hit and see wide ranging adoption? Probably not. I cannot find a photo of Jeff Bezos wearing these, so Amazon probably does not think these are the future. This must just be something that could be fun to have, and to make Amazon look like big innovators of the future.
Originally I thought I would hate these, and at first, I kind of did. But after using them for a bit, there were some real advantages to using them.
Overall, a good first step in the direction of smart glasses
