Made to withstand the most rigorous workouts, the headphones incorporate UA’s waterproof and sweatproof technology and an IPX7 rating that allows for training in all weather conditions, while the Sport Flex Fit ear tips provide a comfortable yet snug fit to limit background noise.
Athletes can make calls or listen to music on either bud independently with Bluetooth 5.0 – no need to worry about switching or missing a connection. Passive Noise Cancellation also ensures zero distraction to maintain superior focus.
