Whoever says bone conduction sunglasses, automatically thinks about ZUNGLE. ZUNGLE pleasantly surprised us last year with its first version of their bone conduction sunglasses. These sunglasses, named ZUNGLE Panther, quickly conquered the world. In the meantime, the American company, witjh headquarters in Los Angeles, did not sit back and relax. They have developed a second version which will soon be distributed. The next generation of bone conduction sunglasses will be the ZUNGLE Viper and the ZUNGLE Lynx; two pair of sunglasses with the same enhanced bone conduction technology, but with a different frame. Thanks to the integrated A.I. (artificial Intelligence) the can also be referred to as being smart glasses. We’ll talk about their A.I. later on in this blog article.
ZUNGLE has worked hard over the past few months on her second version of bone conduction sunglasses. They took note of the remarks and reviews about their previous version and optimized their V2 with new and innovative options and functionalities… no wonder we look forward to these ZUNGLE V2 smart glasses. Within a few months’ time, we will also receive our own test version to take the test. As soon as we have extensively tested this remarkable bone conduction device, we will publish our review on this website. But what makes these sunglasses so special? Let’s take a look at what we already know.
Bone conduction sunglasses that go the extra mile
The ZUNGLE Viper and ZUNGLE Lynx are both equipped with bone conduction technology. This technology allows you to listen to music or to take a call while hearing ambient noise at the same time. For more information regarding Bone conduction we would like to refer you to our article ‘ What is bone conduction? ‘. In addition to an enhanced bone conduction technology, the smart glasses are also equipped with Bluetooth 5.0. Besides being sunglasses, this Bluetooth feature will also provide you the ideal wireless headphones.
In the previous paragraph we mentioned the enhanced bone conduction technology. To achieve this level of bone conduction quality, the company started some exclusive partnerships with Samsung and Sony. These partnerships resulted into a new sound system named Vibra. The Vibra speakers that are integrated into the frame of the ZUNGLE sunglasses are more powerful and brighter than ever before.
A.i. (artificial Intelligence) turns ZUNGLE sunglasses into smart glasses
Besides enhanced bone conduction technology, ZUNGLE also decided to go the extra mile and to add A.I. (Artificial intelligence). By adding this technology, ZUNGLE turns the classic bone conduction sunglasses into real smart glasses. By adding A.I., users will be able to request help from Siri or Google Assistant by simply pressing a button. Just ask your question and Siri or Google Assistant will instantly search the Internet and provide you a reply via bone conduction communication.
The difference between the ZUNGLE Viper and the ZUNGLE Lynx
In terms of specifications and technology, there is no difference between the ZUNGLE Viper and the ZUNGLE Lynx. Both have the same bone conduction technology and both are so-called smart glasses. The difference is in the frame. One frame has a square shape while the other frame has a round shape. There are several lenses available and ZUNGLE’s intent is to allow people to swap the front of the frame. ZUNGLE is even considering to set up a program which will allow you to temporarily test a new frame before buying it.
