Echo Frames 2nd Generation (Amazon) Review
What we like about the Product
What a cool pair of glasses. We did not even know something like this existed until today. They are actually cheaper than the frames we currently own. Note: no one said they were cheap. but they are $400 dollars less than our current frames.
We also liked that it comes with instructions to help with lens installation.
What we don’t like about the Product
Little bit bulky. We do mean a “little bit”.
How do the Echo Frames 2nd
Generation differ from Generation 1?
First off, it has a much longer battery life. Up to 4 hours streaming straight music. Second, the echo frames have had the sound quality improved. And now there are 3 colors to choose from: Black, Black and Blue, Black and tortoise pattern.
