With a price tag ranging from ’49 (512MB) to t feel (or understand) the need to get them, but for those who do and who can afford it, we can say that they work very well.99 (2GB), the Split Thump is not really a mass market MP3 player – it’s rather...

Oakley THUMP PRO debuts, reviewed

 

We have a love/hate relationship with Oakley music sunglasses: we love to hate them. That's why we're overjoyed at the release and subsequent review of the brand new Oakley THUMP PRO shades. Featuring capacities of 256MB, 512MB and 1GB, the new set...

Decent sound quality. More comfortable than the original Thump. Earbud placement is more flexible. function Video(mypage, myname, w, h, scroll) {var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2;var wint = (screen.height - h) / 2;winprops =...

No repeat setting. No flip-up lenses. Earbuds remain conspicuous when not in use. Short battery life. See the Oakley Thump in Action!

We're pretty sure the Oakley namenot the feature set or sound qualityis the primary reason for buying these flash-based MP3 player sunglasses.

Oakley Thump 512MB

 

So, what exactly was bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman wearing on his head when he appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno? If you guessed "music-playing eyewear," you're right. Wearable MP3 players are nothing new, but this high-end shade maker...

Lenses provide excellent UV protection. Easy to use.

Cheap feeling. Earbuds have rough edges and aren't easy to position for maximum sound. Sound is not loud enough. Way too expensive.

For a whopping $495, you should get something a little sturdier and more comfortable. And we thought the Thump would be much louder than it is.

Oakley Thump (128MB, Matte Black)

 

The very idea behind the Thump's design is ingenious, but the execution is mixed. For starters, we were pleased to find that we could wear them over regular eyeglasses, though obviously it felt a little weird. With or without glasses, the Thump fits...

Great sound; excellent earpiece design; USB 2.0; plays DRM-protected WMAs; rechargeable battery; they're sunglasses

Stiff and awkward controls; shockingly expensive; cheap plastic feel; so-so battery life

If you can afford it, the Thump is just about the coolest thing you can put over your eyes and ears.

By charging $350 for the Thump 2s, Oakley is essentially charging $170 for a 512MB MP3 player. Granted, these glasses are extremely comfortable and have a unique and unparalleled styling with an audio player that is more than functional, but at this...

Review: Oakley Thump 2

 

If you're looking for the latest gadget with lots of features and technical capabilities, Oakley's Thump 2 is bare-bones. But in terms of highly portable players for active people, the Thump 2 is hard to top.

Best sports-oriented mp3 player yet ; supports wide variety of audio formats, including Apple's AAC ; easy to use out of the box ; very convenient ; great sunglasses ; Mac and Windows compatible ; no fussing with batteries (charges via USB)

So-so earbuds with mediocre bass ; tiny buttons hard to press in combinations (or with gloves on) ; EQ settings ineffective ; no iTunes integration ; no support for iTunes Music Store files

The Thump 2 is by far the best sports-focused audio player I've used, for one simple reason: no cords. The player itself is built into the Thump 2's body, and each earpiece features a fully adjustable earbud; controls are embedded in the temples. The...
