TEFtalk // Audio glasses comparison

Audio glasses are hip and upcoming, but which ones are the best? Will the major tech companies launch the best ones, or will it be small independent passionate designers who will give you your best value for money? We feel it will be the latter, and compared two great affordable options, the Aether and the Fauna audio glasses.

About Aether Eyewear

Aether emerged from a vision shared by three specialists in product design, brand development, and creative direction. Identifying a gap in the global market, their design team set out to channel their expertise into pushing the boundaries of audio technology and high-end eyewear design.

As an independent brand formed of an international team of designers, engineers, and creative minds, Aether evolved from concept to finished product through an extensive prototyping process, driven by an obsession for details and a perfectionist streak. Their initial collection is the long-awaited realisation of their journey – and the point where it meets yours.

About Fauna Eyewear

Natural hearing without blocking the auditory canal is the idea behind Fauna. To achieve this, their design team counts on technology that makes it possible to build the tiniest of loudspeakers: MEMS – microelectromechanical systems. This brought them to the beginning of their story: to their parent company USound – a fast-growing B2B company that uses this technology to develop and produce the most advanced audio systems for personal use. It is based in Graz and Vienna and employs around 80 people.

Today, FAUNA Audio Glasses are sold worldwide. They inspire many active people who listen to audio content and want to experience the world around them at the same time. People who want to be open to conversations and phone calls. And who place particular value on quality and well-being. Which group do you belong to?
