Wont charge properly, music only last 5 minutes or so


Hello there :)

Try to chance the battery and see if it helps or read this site :
http://rubensmenswear.com/pages/photographs/oakley/mp3/oakley%20thump%20faqs.htm

The write on the site :
5. I'm sure my THUMP is fully charged, so why doesn't it play music?
  • Make sure the volume is not set too low to hear.
  • Make sure there are song files stored on THUMP. Connect THUMP to your computer and open the folder that shows the contents of the THUMP memory
  • Make sure you have the correct music file formats loaded into the THUMP memory. Currently, THUMP plays MP3, WMA and WAV file formats. No other music file formats are supported at this time.
  • Make sure the WMA music files you are trying to play are not protected by DRM. (See below for more information on DRM.) If the song files are protected by DRM, you need to download the DRM Enabled Utility found at www.oakley.com/thump.
6. Why can't I get a full six hours of song play time out of THUMP?
  • Many things affect play time, including the volume level, file compression and music file format. Also, lithium ion polymer batteries gradually lose their charge while not in use. These batteries are also susceptible to temperature.
  • Even though they represent the best technology available, lithium ion batteries do not perform best in high heat.
7. Is it best to completely drain the THUMP battery before recharging?
  • It makes no difference. Lithium ion batteries have no "memory effect" like older technologies such as nickel cadmium, so you can charge them at any time - even when they are not fully discharged.
Hope thats helps
If not then try to return here

I just bought and recieved this Oakley Thump Pro. I tried it out for 2 songs, all was cool. Then I pluged it to the PC, it blinked green. Added 1 more song, and tried turning it off, on, and back off again...


Make sure they're fulling charged up (at least 3 hours), then if they still won't start up reset them: press the play and rewind buttons at the same time then release. Those are the middle and aft/backbuttons on the right temple. Try starting them up again (hold the play button until you get the Thump-Thump sound). If none of that works, call their customer support line ... they're still under warranty.

How do you reset the oakley thump 512


TROUBLESHOOTING RESETTING OAKLEY THUMP Most problems can be solved by resetting OAKLEY THUMP: • To reset OAKLEY THUMP, hold down the Play / Pause button and the Previous Song / Rewind button at the same time. Resetting OAKLEY THUMP will not erase the songs or files stored in memory. • If the reset procedure does not work, you may need to restore the internal software.

I have an Oakley Thump but have been able to access music on it.


Have you tried to drag individual music files to your Thump?  ITumes needs to be set to import in MP3 mode so that the music exports in MP3 mode.  My original Thumps will not play AAC format music files. Also, do your Thumps fully charge using the wall charger?  Hope this helps.

How do you down load music to thump pro glasses


Plug the Oakley Thump into the computer to let it charge for 3 hours - a connector cable should have been provided. Double-click on My Computer - your computer should have assigned it a drive letter. Double click on the right drive letter - most computers will actually label it an Oakley. Look for a folder called Music. Now you must find songs in mp3 format only that are already downloaded on your computer. Drag the music files from the folder where your music files are stored into the music folder of the Oakley.

Not the easiest unit for beginners, but a neat concept.

How to download itunes to thumps


create a playlist in itunes then put the songs you want to add to your Oakleys in that playlist.  Then, burn that playlist to a cd.  after you burn it eject it then re-insert it and transfer the songs from the cd to your itunes...i typically just add them as a new playlist called for my Oakley.  once you do that you can drag those songs to your oakleys...all you are doing is changing the format from m4p which are basically songs you purchase via itunes that are protected for apple products; ipod, etc., to m4a format...you don't have to go thru all that if you didn't purchase the songs via itunes...hope this helps..
