Thank you for your interest in Bose Frames. Our Frames sold in Australia are not “inferior” to those sold in other regions. They meet applicable quality standards for audio sunglasses and are protected under a manufacturer’s warranty. The reason US customers have the ability to purchase our Frames and alter them with prescription lenses is that prescription lenses are subject to different regulations outside of the United States, and Bose is in the process of addressing the regulatory differences to enable it to expand its prescription solution. We hope we have answered your question, if you have a specific concern, please contact Bose support in your region directly.

The below is accurate as of October 16th, 2020:
Alto and Rondo are "prescription-ready" in the United States, meaning your warranty will now be upheld should you choose to add prescription lenses to your Bose Frames through any licensed prescription lens installer in the US only. Soprano, Tenor, and Tempo are "prescription-ready" worldwide. Some limitations may apply.
