Under Armour’s new workout headphones have been approved by Dwane ‘The Rock’ Johnson himself.
Today, Under Armour released the UA Sport Wireless Train headphones, the first pair of headphones from Dwayne Johnson’s Project Rock line of workout gear.
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.
“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.”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. 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.
The UA Sport Wireless Train Project Rock headphones cost $250 and are now available on Under Armour’s website and in select Under Armour stores.
