Under Armour’s new workout headphones have been approved by The Rock himself.
On Thursday, Under Armour released the UA Sport Wireless Train headphones, Project Rock edition.
Two years in the making, these are the first headphones under the actor Dwayne Johnson’s Project Rock line of workout gear with Under Armour.
The fully wireless headphones are rugged, sweat-resistant, and built for high-intensity workouts like weightlifting. Under Armour says Johnson has even tested the headphones during his workouts – they passed.
The headphones cost $US250 and are available starting Thursday.
Here’s what they’re like.
Here they are, the UA Sport Wireless Train headphones, Project Rock edition.
Johnson spent two years working with Under Armour to create the headphones.
“I prefer training in ‘over the ear’ headphones, but have been consistently disappointed (pissed is a better word) with every pair, from every brand that just couldn’t handle my workouts,” Johnson said in a statement about the new headphones.
“I thought if no one is going to design headphones BUILT FOR TRAINING, then I would,” he said. “And I’d make them the best. Almost two years later, they have arrived.”
The Project Rock headphones were created in collaboration with both Under Armour and the electronics company JBL. They’re the first pair of headphones from Johnson’s Project Rock line with Under Armour.
The headphones are designed to handle the “grit and grind of your workout.” They’re fully wireless, anti-slip, and sweat-resistant, and they have breathable ear cushions that should be easy to clean. The idea is that they won’t fall off while you’re pumping iron or running on the treadmill.
The buttons on the outer part of the Project Rock headphones are also larger than on most wireless headphones, so that it’s easier to adjust the volume or press pause while you’re working out.
The Project Rock headphones are tuned to handle heavier bass to help you “crush your workout.”
One cool feature of the Project Rock headphones is the talk-thru button. Pressing the bull on the right side of the headphones will quickly lower the volume of your music so you can hear if someone is talking to you.
Under Armour says the headphones will get 16 hours of battery life, and “speed charge” will give you an extra hour after five minutes of charging.
After you’re done working out, you can store your headphones in the accompanying carrying case, which is also breathable.
The UA Sport Wireless Train headphones, Project Rock edition, cost $US250 and will be available starting Thursday on Under Armour’s website and select Under Armour stores.
