JBL is a well-known brand in the US, alongside other companies active in the headphone/earphone market such as Apple, Bose, Skullcandy and Sony. All of these brands make great products, so it’s up to each of us to decide what’s best for our needs.
In 2021, JBL and Under Armored teamed up again for the so-called Project Rock collection – Under Armor Project Rock Over-Ear Training Headphones – a durable pair of headphones designed specifically for intense workouts. Before we dive deeper into what these headphones are about, check out our Amazon Prime Day Headphone Deals for more options.
I admit, I hate the name (Under Armor Project Rock Over-Ear Training Headphone), but I’m genuinely curious if they were really designed, tested and approved by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as JBL claims. The thing is, if you’re looking for sweat-session-friendly headphones for gym use, there aren’t too many options when you’ve got The Rock’s haircut.
All those brands (e.g. Apple, Bose, Sony) offer great audio products, but if you’re bald and want headphones that don’t fall in the middle of your training sessions, you’re pretty limited in options. Judging by the sheer number of positive reviews mentioning how well these JBL headphones sit firmly on the head (even on really sweaty ones), we’re tempted to believe that Dwayne Johnson put these to the test.
While the JBL Under Armor Project Rock Wireless Over-the-Ear Headphones (uf) were launched just a year ago for $300, you can pick up a pair for as little as $80 at Best Buy. In case you’re wondering, these headphones are well worth the under $100 price, not only because they seem to be perfect for gym use, but they also offer great sound.
They also support both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa and come with an IPX4 rating, meaning they’re built to withstand the toughest and toughest workouts. Also, the headphones are made from Under Armor’s unique fabric technologies and materials. The cushions are removable and hand washable.
Not to mention that they support Adaptive Noise Canceling technology and promise to provide up to 45 hours of playtime when fully charged. At just $80, these JBL wireless headphones are a real bargain, but you only have until July 14 to buy them.
