From bagpipe flamethrowers to spike umbrellas, James Bond is known for his range of weird and wonderful gadgets.

And Bose’s latest offering would no doubt be right up Bond’s street (that is, if he wasn't a fictional character).

Bose has launched three new Bose Frames - sunglasses with speakers hidden in the arms.

The Frames Tempo is designed specifically for outdoor workouts, while the Frames Tenor and Frames Soprano are for everyday use.

All three pairs look much like standard sunglasses and have polarised lenses that block up to 99% of UV rays.

However, unknown to outsiders is the fact that the sunglasses have two sneaky speakers hidden in the arms, allowing you to listen to music or take calls while protecting your eyes.

Bose explained: “Their wafer-thin Bose systems are discreetly embedded in each arm without extra parts, visible screws, seams or perforations.

“You can’t see the electronics and you can’t feel them either. Adding less than 50 grams in weights, the difference is imperceptible.”

The sunglasses connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing you to listen to music, take and receive calls, or interact with your smart assistant.

A discreet button on the right arm can be used to control your audio. A single click will play/pause a song or accept/end a call, while a double click will skip a song or reject a call.

Finally, a triple tap will repeat a song, making it much easier to listen to your favourite tunes on the go.

Meanwhile, the right arm also features a integrated touch control system, allowing you to slide your fingers forwards and backwards to adjust the volume.

In terms of battery life, Bose says that the speakers should work for around 5.5 hours on a single charge.

The Bose Frames are available now, and are priced at £239.95.
