When you crush in the weight room, the last thing you have to worry about is how well your inflatable playlist sounds in less than outstanding headphones.
Having the best accessories to listen to music has become as important to training as a sturdy pair of sneakers. That's why one of the most famous fitness rats in the world, Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), teamed up with Under Armor to release its own wireless over-the-ear headphones as part of its Project Rock signature.
After Johnson and UA collaborated on the 11.11.11 Collection for Veterans Day, the cans appear in a muted camouflage Finish the US military in honor.

If you follow The Rock on Instagram, you've already seen the headphones in action. The actor helped Under Armor and JBL perfect the design through rigorous field tests. He even brought the prototype to China during the Rampage press tour, combining it with his favorite powerroom chain accessory.
Audio specialist JBL provided the technical know-how to improve performance as Under Armor typically focuses on sportswear rather than killer bass. The Project Rock Edition includes JBL Charged Sound, which according to the company is specifically tuned to the bass-heavy traffic jams for training and sports.
Before starting, I had the opportunity to log a few training sessions with the headphones through the bell to see how hard they are. The sturdy design withstands hard work – and although I'm more into wireless buds, I felt comfortable rocking the over-the-ear device. The material is tough without feeling hard, and sweat is not a problem. I was even caught running in a sudden rain shower while testing the headphone, and the dampened neither the sound nor the wear.
