The biggest design challenge in the audio glasses market is integrated all the audio technology into wearable and aesthetically pleasing eyewear. The materials used for the frame is high-quality acetate, produced by the Italian renowned manufacturer Mazzucchelli 1849. The manufacturing process implies a 25-step process where the material is mechanically cut and hand-finished. The nylon-injected temples are fixed to the acetate frames with a special hinge made for everyday wear. The finished glasses weigh less than 40 grams.The lenses used for Aether glasses are made by Carl Zeiss Vision, a renowned market leader in the field of high-quality lenses and optics. They are carefully designed and produced to be UV-protected, anti-reflective, fog- and scratch-resistant lenses.
The first collection that was just launched this year features five distinctive models available in 3 colour options, like sunglasses or optical glasses.TECHNOLOGY
Aether eyewear brand is pioneering a new kind of glasses where technology is combining with design to create an innovative concept.
The eye-catching design includes industry-leading Bluetooth® 5.1 and Qualcomm aptX™ technology with compact speakers included in each temple that provide a clear and crisp sound superior audibility.
This type of eyewear includes open ear audio technology. It means that a small set of directional speakers are placed inside the eyewear's frame at the temples. The speakers are designed to emit sounds towards the ears. The technology also proposes a new type of hands-free phone calls by integrating microphones into the glasses' frame. Another feature is the voice assist function - by long pressing for 3 seconds on the right temple one can easily call Siri or Alexa.
It also features adaptive audio profiling that adapts to the environment while enhancing directional sound while still minimising the background noise and offers discretion when on a call.
For charging the glasses, the designers proposed a compact aluminium case with a magnetic closure and a brushed matte finish with polished bezels. It charges the eyewear in less than an hour.
