>> Jasmine France: Hi, I'm Jasmine France, Senior Associate editor for CNET.com. I'm here today with the Oakley Split Thump. And as you can see this is no regular MP3 player. This is an MP3 player built into some really nice Oakley sunglasses. These are a little bit different than the past models that we have seen in a couple of keyways. First of all they are cheaper, which is always nice. We like to see that. They come in 504 Megabyte, 1 gigabyte, and 2 gigabyte capacities for 249, 299, and 399 respectively. Now that's still not cheap as far as MP3 players are concerned but if you really want to combine two things into one this is definitely a worth while expenditure. Like previous versions of the Thump the Split also comes in a variety of color options. You should be able to find one that suits your style. Now another difference that is key in these sunglasses is that the ear buds are actually removable and we are really liking that because that means that you don't always have to use in these MP3 player. You don't always have to have the ear buds hanging down. Um you can just wear them as you wear your sunglasses and that definitely adds value to the purchase. Another nice design update with these glasses is that while the older models had the controls jutting out across the top of the arms these ones have the controls actually built into the O logo on the side of the arm. Now what is nice about that is that you can't even tell that there are controls there. It just looks like normal glasses. So they've managed to make them a lot more low profile, which really is like as far as style gets concerned. They are very light weight so they are comfortable to wear. Ear buds have three joints and they are telescopy and so you can basically fit them in any style or shape of ear. And that's true for these as well as other sunglasses that Oakley makes that do not have the MP3 player built in. I'm not going to go into all the details but lets just say if you have projectiles flying at your face you probably want to be wearing some Oakley sunglasses instead of a cheap $10 pair. I'm Jasmine France and this has been the Oakley Split Thump. ^M00:01:45 [ Music ]
