With the Soundcore Frames, Anker is launching audio glasses with Bluetooth that reproduce music or phone calls via small speakers in the arms above the wearer's ears. In addition to different frames, the glasses can also be changed.
In particular, Anker wants to counter the limited selection of the preferred design with the Soundcore Frames by offering ten different frames, some of which differ significantly from one another. Polarized sunglasses, glasses with blue light filters and prescription lenses are also available. The frames can be exchanged so that theoretically different models can be purchased without having to purchase all of the technology several times. On the website, the individual models can be tried on virtually with the camera of the smartphone or notebook.
Two audio drivers in the brackets
Two audio drivers are used in each bracket. One driver with a size of 25 × 8 mm sits in front of the wearer's ear, the other with a diameter of 8 mm is placed behind the ear in the bracket, which is supposed to improve the stereo effect. The frequency response ranges from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The audio glasses have a wear detection system that ensures that playback is interrupted when they are removed. The noise-canceling microphones are designed to ensure that the audio glasses can also be used for telephony and video calls. A special “private listening mode” is designed to ensure that people in the vicinity cannot overhear the entire conversation – an undertaking that will be difficult to achieve in quiet surroundings.
Bluetooth 5.2 with AAC
The playback via the Soundcore frames can be controlled via touch and voice . The touch gestures can be adjusted by the user via the Soundcore app. Bluetooth 5.2 is used for the connection to the smartphone. SBC and AAC are used as audio codecs.
