How would you like an Oakley with mp3 player functions?
"Thump(tm) reinvents the experience of on-the-go music," said Jim Jannard, chairman and CEO of Oakley. "The audio circuitry is built inside the eyewear frame, which means there's nothing dangling from your body and there are no wires to get in the way."
Oakley's digital music player mounts the speakers to the eyewear frame with miniature extendible booms, enhanced with pivots.
They allow the wearer to adjust speaker position for optimal ear placement and to reposition the speakers away from the ears whenever necessary. By pivoting the speakers, the wearer can control the balance between environmental sound and digital music. "When you want to carry on a conversation, you simply flip up the speakers," continued Jannard. "We even designed the lenses with a pivot mount, so you can flip them up for low-light conditions."
The new device plays MP3, WMA (DRM - both enabled and disabled) and WAV file formats. Its 128MB or 256MB NAND flash memory minimizes power expenditure. File transfer is completed with a simple "drag & drop" in Microsoft Windows(r) and Apple OS X operating systems via a high-speed USB 2.0 connection that is backward compatible with USB 1.1. Although available storage capacity varies, the device also can store non-song file formats of virtually any kind, making it a convenient means of backing up important files and transferring files between computers.
Powered by an internal lithium ion polymer battery, a full charge is completed in just three hours, and an 80 percent fast charge requires only one hour. Depending on volume level, file compression mode, external temperature and other factors, the internal battery offers approximately six hours of play time between charges. For added convenience, Oakley included both an audible and visual charge indicator (via LED).
