iLounge has got a review of the yet to be released Oakley MP3 Thump 2 sunglasses. This is just the beginning of the new convergence devices (style accessory meets MP3 player), and makes excellent sense for outdoor sports enthusiast. That is of course assuming that the Thump 2 sunglasses are light enough to not bounce of your face or jiggle around annoyingly.

This rendition of the Thump 2′s is more ‘bang for your buck’ then its predecessor. According to iLounge the first version of the Oakley Sunglasses cost $395 and offered just 128MB of storage – about 30 songs. The Thump 2’s are cheaper, starting at$299, offer 256MB of music and apparently play back AAC as well as MP3. For $50 more you can upgrade to the 512MB pair, and there is even a 1GB option.

Check out iLounge’s whole review and they have a ton of detailed pics.
