Free shipping, and as an added bonus, some states like mine do not charge tax on eyewear, so that's a surprise bonus for me. This is a YMMV, and I'm no expert on taxation laws for eyewear per state, so... you'll want to look into that yourself.

Reviews seem to indicate that it has decent audio quality but zero bass, no polarized lenses, no touch controls, a single button for playback, no volume control, and ~3hr playback.

Keep in mind that Bose recently canceled the AR features that were sold as one of the perks of these.

Fwiw, you can purchase a set of polarized lenses from Bose that you can pop in yourself.

This line is being discontinued as mentioned above. They are cancelling their AR project that these were part of, so this model will continue working in some ways but they aren't working on them further.

Thanks, just noticed the price drop on my watchlist on Amazon. Picked up a pair for arrival tomorrow.

Use case for me, I'm a cyclist so having spacial awareness is important without having headphones in my ear. Have tried the Aftershokx and hate 'em, more for audio books but not music.

These are one of those things that you think, "Why...." but I've been to the Bose store and tried them on and thought, Wow they work amazingly well for being outside exercising. Of course, the $200 price tag was a bit too much but at $170 I'll take a stab.
