Bluetooth Sunglasses! TriSpecs First Collection Vs Oakley Bluetooth Shades

  • Pin it

Despite my sustained efforts, my car is sometimes transformed into my office! Is where I can make my phone calls: doctors, parents, friends and so on. It just so happens I had a Bluetooth addiction.

But my Bluetooth headset gave up on me one morning and refused to light up and work. RIP. Next you know, I was closing my glove compartment one day and that’s where the sunglasses were. One wrong move and bang! They went in pieces!

Trispecs Bluetooth sunglasses

Oakley Bluetooth sunglasses So here I am now, facing a true dilemma – how could I resist a pair of sunglasses equipped with Bluetooth technology?

Looking further into the matter, I found out that the first ones to have launched this kind of wonder product were Oakley. Now they have competition with TriSpecs and their shades with uni-directional mics, one dialing touch, retractable stereo earbuds (hanging at the tip of the temples when not in use).

The TriSpecs will be available in stores later this month and cost appx $200. Don’t they look ten times (at least) more stylish than the Oakley? (engadget via luxist)

I agree they look great!

@ellington I am going to get a pair before my trip to st. martin
…imagine laying out on the warm sand…my music…no worries about missing a call…NO WIRES!!!

They are nice, but I must ask Sara, if one is on holiday, why would you worry about missed calls?

@ellington – Lol
With the kind of work I do it’s kind of a given that you’re never really on vacation!!

Looked into TriSpecs more…the earbuds retract and stay firmly against the ends of the arms of the glasses (won’t move).

Also the lenes are carl zeiss : )

I really like these glasses…@ellington cmon would you be caught dead in the oakley’s? Cmon?

No I would not, but I don’t require a bluetooth. I hardly use my cell phone, its just a wee luxury to have and to hold. :)
The Oakley ones look like something Tom Cruise would wear. :P

Ellington, I have no idea! Right now I’m weighting on the differences between iPhone and HTC. Can’t decide.

But I admit the TriSpecs look stunning for a geek-ologie item!

Sara – indeed, those Oakley look outfashioned by 20 years at least. The kind that never goes trendy when vintage!

Have a great vacation! with or without bluetooth!

the oakley is more of a sport brand not much luxury in it…

Don’t buy the Trispeces, the earbuds break off and you can’t ever get in touch with them. They won’t anwser emails and their phone just rings and disconnects. I had mine for 6 mons. and now they are in the trash!
