OAKLEY THUMP™ MP3 Sunglasses

OAKLEY THUMP is the world's first digital music eyewear. Just high-performance optics forged with an integrated, state-of-the-art digital audio engine. Oakley's digital music eyewear delivers over 60 tracks or about 4 hours of head-thumping music directly to your brain without cables or wires. OAKLEY THUMP comes in seven color combinations and two types: a 128 MB version and a 256 MB version with polarized lenses.

Lance Armstrong had the Oakley Thump already at the Tour de France. The glasses play MP3, WMA and WAV with the battery-life is only 6 hours. The THUMP features USB 2.0 and Oakley's High Definition Optics lenses.

These supershades cost $395 for a pair with 128 megabytes of memory and $495 for the 256-megabyte version, which sports polarized lenses. By comparison, the smallest of Apple's stylish iPod music players has 4 gigabytes of memory and retails for about $249. And flash-memory players of comparable memory size, such as the Creative Nomad or the Rio Cali, come with loads of features to arrange playlists and tweak sound settings, and typically go for less than $150.
