Thump Pro Sunglasses
I made the PROs! That would be the THUMP PRO Sunglasses, not the Galaxy soccer team. Oakley has taken the guts of the Motorola/Oakley's -- same patented optics and light-weight comfort of THUMP 2-- and put it in a slim sports model, minus the Bluetooth phone feature. This sport design is even more lightweight, but what's new about these is that you download your tunes DIRECTLY to your sunglass frame (via a USB cord.) Hence, no cumbersome wires to get in your way.
The speakers, which fit in your ears, are fully adjustable, so you can position them for a perfect fit .The frame is sweat resistant and it features UNOBTAINIUM� components that actually increase grip with perspiration. (I tried them out roller blading and they didn't budge an inch.). Figure you can store up to 240 songs on the 1 GB version, 120 songs on the 512 MB version, or 60 songs on the 256 MB version.
With up to 6 hours of playback time on a single charge,( three-color indicator light to show battery level), you're going to wear out before your sunglasses do. The Oakley high definition lenses are also easily switched. Just snap and click. $299 at Oakley or wherever the pros buy their sunglasses.
