Considering that Under Armour isn’t in the business of audio gear development, it isn’t surprising that the UA Sport Wireless headphones are designed and developed by JBL. However, Under Armour does have its own branding on it, and the Project Rock Edition comes with The Rock’s iconic ‘Brahma Bull’ symbol on the sides. The headband has the phrase ‘Blood. Sweat. Respect.’ inscribed, and the headset is wireless with Bluetooth connectivity. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earbuds 2C headphones launched in India

The headphones are sweat-proof, and also come with a fabric lining on the earpads called Supervent which allows for better air flow. Additionally, the ear pads can be removed and hand washed. Considering that these headphones are JBL deep down inside, you also get a typical JBL sound, as well as fast charging which will provide one hour of listening with five minutes of charging. The headset has a 610mAh battery which is rated to run for 16 hours on a single charge.
The headphones are priced at $249, but visiting the Under Armour site will give you an Indian price of Rs 18,484 and the option to ship to India (the price will go up significantly once duties and shipping costs are added).
