I Wear My Sunglasses At Night.

with 3 comments

I’m sure everyone has experienced that annoying thing when you get a song stuck in your head and you can’t get it out. It is usually some 80’s classic by some one hit wonder with a mullet come poodle hairstyle that you heard in a 7-Eleven or a supermarket.

It happened to me today when I was looking at the Moto GP test results from Qatar. For those that don’t know , this years first race is being held at night for the first time in history. Pretty exciting stuff yeah? So anyway, as I mentioned in a previous Gadget Freaks blog ( Ultimate Gadgets ) the Moto GP stars are usually seen off track or prepping for the race wearing MP3 sunglasses. Add these two factors together and you get that unforgettable tune by Corey Hart. Yes folks…..I wear my sunglasses at night


So if you hadn’t already guessed this blog is about MP3 sunglasses. We will have a comprehensive Moto GP preview later this week on all the machinery, gadgets and the main protagonists.

MP3 shades trailblazers Oakley are without doubt the leaders in the market. However, there are quite a few up-and-comers getting in on their act. Take a look at this Top10.

The Oakley Thump range is what you usually see hanging off the ears of the Moto GP boys. Great looking and high-quality units, they carry a fairly hefty price tag ( around US$300-500). Check out these stylish Tortoiseshell babies!!


If the Oakley range is priced a little out of your range you may want to check out some of these MP3 sunglasses. Spotted over at Gizmondo these sunglasses are made by Evergreen and although they don’t have the price tag and brand name of the Oakley models they do appear to have very similar features and performance. Check out these at Coolest-Gadgets Also check out for its way cool gadget forum.

If you’ve never owned a pair of MP3 sunglasses there is a great demo video on Youtube that may help to explain all you wanted to know. Of course Youtube as always is a great source of information on most things and MP3 sunglasses are no exception. Check out Youtube as there are a pile of vids on this subject. There’s even one with some gratuitous glam on it. Whoo hoo!
