Hoya Launches Audio Glass

Hoya is piloting Audio Glass, sports sunglasses that allow users to listen to music while playing sports.

The sunglasses have embedded bone conduction speakers that connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone. Bone conduction speakers communicate vibrations directly to the auditory nerves via the skull, which are recognised by humans as ‘sound’.

Users can take advantage of hands-free smartphone voice recognition and navigation functions, and make phone calls without cutting out external sounds. The audio glasses come fitted with Hoya photochromic lenses and equipped with a rechargeable battery embedded into the left and right temples.

Hoya hopes to sell the glasses to individuals who engage in recreational sports, particularly cycling and jogging.

This Hoya cross-divisional innovation is now in a commercial pilot phase and under consideration for geographical expansion.
