Summary: This is by far the most innovative, yet less reliable mp3/sunglass pair that Oakley has released. The quality of the mp3 player is sleek and dynamic. They feature flip up lenses for indoor use. UV and blue-light protection which protects against harmful rays. Thump 2 incorporates a flash-based player into the frame of a pair of sunglasses for cordless on-the-go listening.
Excerpt: The speakers give out extremely high quality sound, and they are tucked inside nicely and Oakley Thump 2 is very light in weight! The 256mb is very small and really needs to be 1GB + as it will only hold about 50-60 songs which means you have to keep updating it all the time. I believe there is now a 1GB version and I would defiantly recommend getting this size instead of the 256mb. Overall I love my new glasses and are very very happy with the quality!
Pros: Very nice design, great sound, a must have for athletes !
Cons: Doesn't come with wall charger, hard case and has very poor battery life .
Excerpt: I have used these for a couple of weeks now, at work, cycling and on holiday and they have been faultless. Sound quality is much better than I expected , the lack of wires is liberating and having the controls easy to hand and not in a pocket is great. I have the 1Gb version and managed to get about 170 of my most favourite tracks on.
Excerpt: Dam these glasses look so nice!, to start they are just oakley gascan glasses with the added feature of an mp3 player. The mp3 however is dissapointing, although good quality and it fits into my ears perfectly (the adjustable headphones are really good) its simply not big enough. The quality of sound is satisfactory however never what you will acheive will a dedicated mp3 player or iPod. Navigation betweeen tracks is easy and yeah it look uber cool to have a pair on!.
Excerpt: Echt een aankoop om trots op te zijn. Ik heb de Oakley Thump 2 512 mb nu al enige tijd en het is een genoegen om op een zonnige dag op de fiets te stappen, met je eigen draadloze muziek geïntegreerd in je zonnebril. Geen gefriemel met draadjes of aparte koptelefoons. Heerlijk! De akoestiek van een concertzaal wordt niet helemaal waargemaakt maar het geluid doet niet onder voor de gemiddelde discman of stand alone mpr3-speler.
