The Rock wants to, ummm, rock your workout with the Project Rock headphones
Rock out with your Rock out.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is everywhere nowadays, with what seems to be the busiest schedule in showbiz. Now, he wants to be there when you workout, as well. Not him per se, but his new $249 wireless workout headphones called Project Rock.
These headphones were built by JBL in partnership with Under Armor, and like The Rock, they’ve also gone all-in launching with a companion Spotify playlist curated by Johnson himself.
The Project Rock headphones use advanced Under Armour fabrics on the earpads to both aid breathability and to stop them from sliding off your head. The pads are removable and hand-washable, so no matter how sweaty, you’ll be able to clean off the stank. They also have The Rock’s signature Brahma bull insignia, are foldable and come with a breathable case for between workouts.
JBL added a superfast 5-minute charge for an hour of wireless use, and a TalkThru function to quiet the music and turn on speech-optimized microphones to let you talk to people nearby without taking them off. The 610mAh, 16-hour battery takes two hours to charge fully, and the mics will also activate your phone’s digital assistant. It’s Bluetooth 4.1 for the connection, but no higher-quality standards like those of AptX.
Johnson is also launching his own “Chase Greatness” workout gear and UA training shoes, that he had a hand in during the design stage.
The Project Rock headphones will be available today for $249 from UA.com and Under Armour stores.
