The Tablet PC exists because Bill Gates had a vision. 

Hardware manufacturers joined in that vision and dared to be different. 

Thump

Now Oakley has done the same...

Creating the Most Unique and Innovative Accessory We Have Seen To Date

TabletPc2.com's 2004

Accessory of the Year!



The 256 MB Oakley Thump

by Linda A. Epstein

From the lifeguard towers of Malibu to the snow covered slopes of Mammoth,  The Thump has the highest "WOW"  factor we have seen to date. 

How do you skip right past being a TabletPc2.com Accessory of the Month and go straight to becoming the Accessory of the Year?

By creating something no one has and leaving no detail undone,
Oakley has created a product everyone will want: the world's first digital music eyewear.
  


Thump with the new Sahara i213 Tablet PC

Attach to your Tablet PC, drag and drop your favorite tunes and you're ready to Rock!

Try as I might finding the right words to describe the sensation that overcome you when you put them on .....I can't.   The Thump is like magic.   Put them on and the world seems brighter, your wallet seems fuller not lighter, and an aura of fun and happiness surrounds you.... 

Seem too good to be true?  It's not.  In this case, the sound quality merged with style and function is a winning combination that produces an amazing sensation.

Designed to maximize the user experience Thump weighs only 1.8 ounces (10% less than an empty cd case) and is equipped with 256 megs of solid-state flash memory for up to 8 hours of absolutely ski free music.   Buttons on the right arm allow you to play, pause, shuffle or repeat songs, and buttons on the left control volume.  Earpieces are adjustable in length and move up and out of the way if you need to answer a cell phone.  Lenses flip up and out of the way when your indoors.  Oakley has thought of everything, no detail has been left undone.

The Thumps state-of-the-art digital audio system is ready to go when you are.   Attach them to your Tablet PC, laptop or desktop computer with the included USB cable, drag and drop your files into the Thump and your out the door in minutes.

Lil Jon Signature Edition

The Thump's built-in MP3 player is set to revolutionize the way we listen to music as well as store and transfer data.   

I've spent days driving with the top down,  enjoying Malibu sunsets and enjoying Mammoth's ski slopes in them. The polarized lenses worked well in all conditions and the sound quality is exceptional.  From the lifeguard towers of Malibu to the snow covered slopes of Mammoth,  The Thump has the highest "WOW"  factor we have seen to date.   A definite conversation starter, wearing the Thump is a great way to meet new people.

Thump's are so hot the only thing missing are the flames on the side.....

How Oakley managed to come up a frame that looks good and fits everyone who puts it on is beyond me, but they did.  Coming in seven color combinations the Thump looks good on everyone.  

They are the perfect accessory for anyone who thinks outside the box, appreciates and enjoys life and who doesn't want tangles of cords following them everywhere they go. 

Light and comfortable to wear with sound quality far and above any MP3 player I have ever heard before, they are both fun and functional ... it just doesn't get any better.
