Oakley, Inc. (http://oakley.com) today announced the expansion of its successful line of digital music eyewear with the launch of THUMP 2 (http://oakley.com/o/o2794d). Rendered with the aggressive styling of the companys GASCAN (http://oakley.com/o/o2222d) eyewear, THUMP 2 is available with up to 1.0 GB of flash memory – enough storage capacity for approximately 240 songs in a design that fully integrates a music system with an eyewear frame.
Creating the worlds first digital audio eyewear required a new way of thinking, said Oakley President Colin Baden. The idea was to combine a music player with something youre already wearing, and do it in a way that eliminated cords and wires that dangle and tangle. Were now taking the freedom and convenience of our original invention to a new level by offering THUMP 2 with a full gigabyte of skip-free memory.
We took the subminiature circuitry of our premier THUMP (http://oakley.com/o/o2213d) and halved its size while maintaining its world-class audio fidelity, and redesigned the speaker booms to have six directions of movement for a fully adaptable fit, concluded Baden. In addition to the world class technology of our original invention, the styling takes its inspiration from our successful GASCAN eyewear frame, a hard-edged architecture that combines a definitive fashion statement with the patented performance of XYZ Optics
