Oakley Raziwirea

Oakely RAZRWIRE Bluetooth Eyewear

For the Month of February we bring you the Oakley Thump 2 MP3 Sunglasses and the Oakley Razrwires, Bluetooth Sunglasses. 

Tablet PC 2 Logo

It's no secret that here at Tablet PC 2 we're partial to sunglasses..

The Motion Tablet PC in our logo sports sunglasses and even at night its rare to find me without a pair on my head.   In fact, ever since I named the Oakley Thump the Product of the year for 2005  when I go to industry events and trade shows people look to see just what I'm wearing and ask what they do.   

For those of you who were disappointed to find me wearing wearing Chanel sunglasses rather than a new pair of Oakley Razrwires or Thump 2's at CES last month I apologize.  

Why wasn't I wearing my Razrwires in Vegas?  

Two reasons, first because but the lenses in my Razrwires are to dark to wear inside or at night, and second because I was afraid someone would pluck them from my head and walk off with them and I didn't want to lose them.

Before you ask, the answer to the question why are we using more of Oakley's Photos instead of our own?  

The answer is simple: Sunglasses are difficult to photograph and after multiple successfully attempts we felt that using Oakley's Photos was the best way to show you just how nice these products are.

Oakley Razrwire

What make the Razrwires so special?  

They are the perfect combination of  style, comfort and function.

Day or night there are two things I never leave home without, sunglasses and a cell phone.  That said the fact that I can answer my cell phone on my sunglasses means I don't need to carry a headset for my phone and they eliminate the need to keep adjusting my sunglasses around a headset.  One less thing to carry, one less thing to lose.....   

What's in the Box:Razrwire box

 

  • Razrwire Sunglasses
  • Bluetooth Module
  • Wall Charger
  • Users Guide
  • MicroClear Bag for cleaning and storage
  • Accessories Card
  • Oakley Registration Card
  • RX ready Card

Following the step by step instructions in the users guide once you charge the Bluetooth Module you can have your Razrwires' set up , paired to your phone and and ready to use in less than five minutes.

When your on the road or at home the Razrwires can be charged with the included wall charger, or you can just plug them into the USB port on your Tablet PC or laptop computer.  If you happen to have the Motorola Razr phone, the wall charger is the same for both the Razr phone and the Oakley Razrwire so you only need to cary one charger, or one cable to charge from a USB port.

You choose which side you want to wear the bluetooth moduleand adjust the position for your own comfort by sliding the module on arm of the glasses.   Pairing with your bluetooth phone is done in six steps that take about 60 seconds to accomplish.  

Integrated into the bluetooth module are the microphone, volume up and down buttons, indicator light and the multifunction button so that you have all of the function you need from a bluetooth headset at the touch of a button.  If your cell phone has voice dialing capabilities you can use voice dialing from your Razrwires.

Available in Three Color combinations, The aesthetic design of the RAZRWIRE  makes them suitable in any situation and male or female, they look good on everyone. 

Easy to use and fun to wear, the Razrwire is designed for function as well as looks.  They are light and comfortable. the sound quality of the bluetooth module is excellent, even when driving with the convertible top down on the freeway.   

RAZRWIRE Metal VaultRAZRWIRE Soft Vault

Like everything else from Oakley, The MicroClear Bag for cleaning and storage that comes with the Razrwire serves a dual purpose,  but if your planning on packing your Razrwires I suggest the RAZRWIRE Metal Vault   or   RAZRWIRE Soft Vault.   Personally I purchased the Metal Vault for mine because I'm prone to tossing my glasses into my computer bag or backpack and I don't want my glasses broken when they are in the overhead bin on a plane.

For those of you who are wondering if I wear the Razrwire when I'm on the slopes, the answer is no....... I wear Razrwires when I'm driving during the day and Oakley Thumps when I'm skiing. 

Pros:

  • Stylish and functional
  • Prescription lenses available
  • Razrwires eliminate the need for a bluetooth headset
  • Comfortable
  • Great battery life
  • Bluetooth piece is removable if you want to wear just the sunglasses
  • Its amusing to answer you phone on your sunglasses

Cons:

  • Unless you buy them with light lenses you can't wear them at night
  • Not available with photosensitive lenses

In Conclusion: 

Once again Oakley has come up with the perfect combination of  Style, comfort and function.  Razrwires are easy to use and fun to wear.  They are light and comfortable. and sound quality of the bluetooth module is excellent.
