I guess Oakley didn't figure it out the first time around that the Thump MP3-enabled sunglasses are pretty lame. Oakley is releasing the Thump Pro sunglasses on November 17 (just in time for the end of the NASCAR season). The Pros will have memory ranging from 256MB up to 1GB and will supports AAC, MP3, WMA and WAV audio files. Prices begin at $250. At least they look a little better than the original Thumps, but not by much.

On a related note: at a football game a couple months ago I saw a person wearing the old Thumps and running down the stairs, he proceeded to fall and tumble down a bit. I think it was karma. True story.

I guess one can't really blame Oakley for trying to improve the thump...but still, is it really worth it to polish a turd? Which reminds me of a joke...this guy walks into a bar, with a Thump in his hand and says 'hey, lookit what I almost stepped on'.
