They look pretty cool but a little pricey for me..... I think I'll stick to my $20 MP3 and $15 sunglasses <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I have the older version - the Oakley Thumps.<br><br>
They're great. My version has flip up lenses (like baseball players wear) so I can wear them when it's sunny out or not. I got the 512 MB version. It's not a ton of space but they were cheaper than the 1 MB version. I can still fit enough songs on them to get me through even the longest of my runs.<br><br>
The new ones look really cool since they can worn as regular sun glasses with the ear phones.<br><br>
I do wish they kept the flip up lenses though.

I have the Thump Pros... I have only ran about 50 miles so far wearing them... but so far I like them... But once again I have only ran about 50 miles wearing them... however one was a 20 miler. Go to a shop and try them on first however i could see how the nose piece would not fit everyones nose bridge area.

On the Thump Pros... I have about 200 miles now and realy like them... but the summer will tell more... I wish they made them on a bit lighter frame lihe the M frame....Vented lens option would be nice as well.
