Aether Audio Eyewear Review | Softer Volumes

At first glance, Aether delivers on all the must-have eyewear features for the style-conscious. The brand’s timeless Italian designs with clean lines and distinctive modernist shapes look sharp yet understated and are paired with premium features. That list includes UV-protected, anti-reflective, fog and scratch-resistant lenses by Carl Zeiss Vision and acetate from leading manufacturer Mazzucchelli that’s cut and hand-finished in a 25-step process—proving this is an eyewear brand that takes its designs seriously.

On closer inspection, you soon realise these glasses offer more than meets the eye. Cleverly hidden in each temple of these contemporary glasses is an in-built speaker, powered by Bluetooth® 5.1 and Qualcomm aptX™ technology. The aim: to listen to your favourite song or podcast or jump on a call without the need for any other devices or accessories. Dreamt up by a team of designers, creatives and engineers, Aether takes the notion of ‘hands-free’ to the next level.

The frames are available in a range of styles and colours in both glasses and sunglasses form. They’re charged in a compact aluminium case that holds four full charges, powering three hours of uninterrupted listening with each charge. Taking the focus off the background noise, these glasses let you create your own ambience – completely inconspicuously and in refined style.
