JBL sport headphones are perfect for an active lifestyle. Whether you’re training for a marathon or working out at the gym, the headphones have a perfect mix of style and performance so you can move with ease. JBL brings you the sound of motivation!
JBL Reflect Fit: Bluetooth-enabled, behind-the-neck sport headphone with heart rate updates and best-in-class ergonomics
The wireless sport headphone packs in premium features to give fitness enthusiasts the best sweat session during every workout. Engineered with heart rate monitoring capabilities, athletes can simply touch a button to hear voice updates of their heart rate and access real-time data to get the most out of every warm-up, pull-up or run. The in-ear heart rate tracker is strategically located in the earbud, eliminating the need for an additional device while working out.
JBL Reflect Fit designed with IPX-5 sweat proof material is compatible with the most popular fitness apps so athletes can access all of their workout stats in one place. In addition, it’s highly reflective cables mean athletes can feel safer working out in low light settings.
The sport headphone packs up to 10 hours of audio playback before having to recharge. To ensure athletes are always in touch with their mobile phones, the headphone includes a built-in microphone for crystal-clear calls and a vibration alert within the neckband to make users aware of incoming calls in the gym or on-the-go.
Pricing and Availability
JBL Reflect Fit (€149) will be available in Black and Red at selected retailers starting from October 2017.
UA Sport Wireless Train: Training-proof wireless headphones feature UA SuperVent fabric ear cushions and JBL TalkThru technology
UA Sport Wireless Train headphones are equipped with premium design features ideal for gym-goers. Under Armour’s proprietary UA SuperVent fabric technology helps to keep athletes cool and dry to eliminate overheating and excessive sweating. The vented, anti-slip compression headband provides additional heat management and secure fit so it comfortably stays in place. Built for rugged durability and sweat resistance, all materials and finishes withstand intense workouts. To ensure protection in gym bags, the headphones come with a durable, sport carrying case that also features UA SuperVent fabric.
UA Sport Wireless Train’s revolutionary TalkThru technology enables athletes to easily have in-person conversations without having to remove their headphones. At the touch of a button, music seamlessly fades out while three JBL microphones heighten the surrounding conversation. Athletes won’t lose focus while getting a quick cue, form tip, or just saying hello to friends. One more touch of the TalkThru button restores playback and keeps any gym-goer focused.
UA Sport Wireless Train includes a Speed Charge Battery, which users can charge for an hour of workout time in just five minutes, and play for up to 16 hours when fully charged. Additionally, the headphone is tuned with JBL Charged Sound, a sport-optimised, acoustic research-based sound signature custom developed by JBL for Under Armour headphones.
Pricing and Availability
UA Sport Wireless Train headphones (€199) will be available in Black starting from December 2017.
