Talk with me about sound quality
The version I evaluated was still an extremely early model when I attempted these back in 2019. It would not have actually been reasonable to judge the sound quality completely based upon that experience, but I left the Berlin exhibition optimistic about what Fauna was working on.
The audio module in each temple and each module consists of a patented MEMS micro speaker, an electrodynamic speaker, a touch-pad, associated electronics and a battery. Two microphones are likewise integrated into the best temple with beam-forming and echo cancelling. The frequency bandwidth is from 250 Hz to 20 kHz.
The Fauna Audio Glasses charging case links through Bluetooth with a smart device or PC; a specific app is not needed. The glasses are managed by touching and swiping on the temples. The glasses remain lightweight despite all the electronic devices inside, with both variations weighing 50 grams.
Cost and availability
Both versions of the Faun glasses will be readily available to acquire from wearfauna.com or Selfridges online for an RRP of ₤ 249 and $299. The Bose Frames Alto, went for $199, a complete $100 less expensive than the Fauna glasses.
Well be taking a look at a complete evaluation system soon, so remain tuned to NextPit for our impressions.
The Memor Havana model consists of changeable Zeiss DuraVision BlueProtect lenses which lower blue light exposure from computers and phones which is shown to impact the circadian rhythm and cause bad sleep prior to bed.

Battery life and charging
The battery for both variations offers up to 20 hours standby and more than five hours of music, voice assistant, or phone calls, according to Fauna Theres a 100 mAh battery in the glasses and a 1,300 mAh battery in the charging case, providing an additional five battery chargers. Charging time is 2 hours for a full charge.
Whats truly intriguing about the charging case, nevertheless, is the way the glasses link to the charger. The adapters are concealed in the hinge of the glasses, meaning theres no cable television to link as weve seen on other audio glasses models. These charge the exact same way true-wireless headphones do, and thats cool.

We initially heard of Fauna back at IFA 2019. I attempted a very early prototype back then and was pleasantly surprised with both the design and sound quality. Unlike Bose, Fauna appeared to have actually created audio eyewear that was actually comfy to use and fashionable. Now, 2 years later, the end product is all set for a market launch.
These are the very first audio glasses without big, chunky temples. In theory, at least, you might utilize these as your day-to-day glasses.

Fauna says its Audio Glasses are pioneering and special on the marketplace due to the audio innovation and sound instructions, declaring that the sound journeys directly to the users ear without significant leak. The concept is that you will not disrupt coworkers or others close by, and nobody else will have the ability to hear any music, a podcast, or your private telephone call. In addition, wearers will constantly have the ability to view the surroundings and hear what goes on around as the ear canal is not obstructed making them safe to use when outdoors and crossing roadways.
