Oakley THUMP PRO Glasses
Oakley has just upgraded its THUMP line of music-playing sunglasses with its new THUMP PRO line. The new frames are based on Oakley's more conventional BOTTLECAP design but add a more advanced music player than was present in the original THUMP model, with capacities ranging between 256MB and 1GB and expanded format support for AAC, Audible, MP3, and WMA audio. All models are compatible with Macs and Windows PCs. The company says it has also ensured that the glasses themselves are improved for listening: the frame material, dubbed UNOBTAINIUM, increases grip alongside perspiration, preventing the integrated earbuds from slipping out of position. Models are available with black, bronze, or gray frames and ship soon for prices ranging between $249 (256MB) and $349 (1GB). A complete image is available after the jump.
