Under Armour and JBL have teamed up again to release the latest item in the Project Rock collection, a pair of wireless over-ear Training Headphones designed and approved by Dwayne Johnson himself. The Rock’s new headphones feature ANC, breathable earcups, and a sweat-friendly design with washable parts.
Believe it or not, but this is The Rock’s third pair of wireless headphones. The Hardest Working Man in Hollywood released his first pair of Train over-ear headphones in 2018, and followed up a few years later with the 2020 Project Rock wireless earbuds. But the new Train headphones look much more compelling than previous releases, thanks to a sleek new design and improved features.
Engineered by JBL, the new Train headphones pack ANC, a 45-hour battery life, plus five-minute speed charging that yields two hours of use. Google Assistant and Alexa compatibility allows you to quickly jump between playlists or set appointments without digging around in a gym bag for your phone, and an auto-pause feature stops your music or podcasts when you take off the headphones.
The new Train headphones also feature newer, larger breathable earcups to help prevent sweat pooling, plus an IPX4 water-resistance rating for good measure. The fast-drying ear cushions are also removable, so you can rinse them off before you leave the gym.
You can order the new Train headphones now at the Under Armour website. They cost $300, which seems appropriate given the features and JBL engineering. Of course, it’s worth pointing out that bone conduction headphones are often a safer option than over-ear headphones when you’re working out, as they don’t drown out your surroundings.
