Oakley Split THUMP sunglasses


Oakley has a new pair of sunglasses with incorporated MP3 player on the market, and while I like the style I'm not sure I'd want to pay over $200 for them -- I’d rather spend that kind of money on a regular MP3 player. Though, I can definitely see how Split THUMP can be rather appealing if you practice outdoor activities like mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, etc., on a regular basis.

The sunglasses come in different frame color and lense type combinations, and of course in different storage sizes for your MP3s. The cheapest model includes 512 MB storage capacity and costs $ 249.00; other models can store up to 1 GB (for $ 299.00) and 2 GB (for $ 399.00) of music. Split THUMP is compatible with AAC (.m4a), MP3, WMA, WMA with DRM 9.0, and WAV formats.

The sunglasses’ wireless earplugs can be removed when not needed and the player’s controls are seamlessly incorporated into the icons. The glasses ship with a USB cable that can be used (or better, will have to be used) to charge the gadget’s batteries. Yep, that’s right, Oakley decided not to include a regular wall or car charger in the deal; instead, you can purchase them separately for “just” $45 and $35.
