STAMFORD, CT – December 3, 2020 – JBL and Under Armour have collaborated to launch the brand-new UA True Wireless Streak - Engineered by JBL. Designed with smaller ears in mind, the ultra-compact true wireless sport headphones were developed in collaboration with athletes to help them reach their peak performance.
The UA True Wireless Streak features Sport Flex Fit Ear Fins and Tips ranging in size from extra-small to medium to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. Train in all weather – or sweaty – conditions with UA’s IPX7 waterproof and sweatproof technology, while built-in JBL Charged Sound delivers boldly tuned rich bass for motivation. With Fast Pair and Bluetooth 5.0, users can easily pair their earbuds with a device and make a call or listen to music on either bud independently, all without the risk of switching or missing a connection. Dual beamforming mics also offer wind-blocking technology for outdoor training sessions, while touch control allows users to control music or calls with the tap of a finger. With 6 hours of playtime in each earbud and an additional 12 hours charge in the compact case, these headphones are capable of 18 hours total playback.
UA True Wireless Streak includes Bionic Hearing Technologies – TalkThru and Ambient Aware. TalkThru Technology lowers music volume and amplifies speech so athletes can easily chat with a workout partner or trainer. The Ambient Aware feature increases background noises for additional awareness when exercising outdoors.
“We are excited to partner with Under Armour once again to bring consumers a brand-new product that maximizes performance with JBL charged sound while minimizing size,” said Pascal Van Laer, Vice President and General Manager, Headphones and Wearables at HARMAN. We both have a loyal customer base that includes all ages and walks of life, so offering a smaller true wireless sport headphone was a key goal for us.”
“We know our athletes use music as a source of motivation when they are training,” said Brian Pitstick, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Under Armour. “The new True Wireless Streak minimizes distractions with a super lightweight and compact design that is extremely comfortable yet stays secure in the ear. Combined with JBL’s high-end audio technology, this product helps our athletes push to reach their limits.”
