The THUMP is one part Oakley eye ware and one part 256MB MP3 player fused together to form a sexy concoction of comfort, freedom, music and style. Oakley, mainly known for their sunglasses, decided it was time to broaden their field of expertise while at the same time sticking with what they know and we are sure glad they did. Before we take a closer look at these puppies, check out what they are bringing to the table.
