Finally someone made a set of over the ear headphones that wont malfunction from sweat, fall off of your head while deadlifting, and they still sound great. I see people complaining about small ear cups and the headphones being tight or uncomfortable. They are training headphones they are supposed to be snug so that they dont slide off during explosive movements. If you are getting these headphones for your daily elliptical session yes probably not your best option but if you are an intense hardcore trainer then these are the best heaphones out. They look great, sound great, are easy to use, and personally I dont find them uncomfortable at all, I dont think they would be good for a Netflix binge but thats not what they are marketed for. Trust me these are awesome training headphones....none better. Great job Rock, JBL, and UA.
I received these headphones today. I was wearing the Bose QC 35 in the gym, but the ear cups were deteriorating due to the amount of sweat I was producing. (Hardcore) From the initial unboxing, the case is very durable and well built. The headphones themselves are true quality from the band to the headphones. The ear cups are smaller than I am use to, but the sound quality is on point. The controls are easy to learn and control, especially if you are drenched. The talk through feature is pretty convenient for quick conversations.
KEEP IN MIND, these headphones are great and can be used for everyday use, but were built for the people who train hard in the gym. Keep that in mind when you read these reviews. If you are looking for a set of headphones to lounge in or for a flight with noice cancellation, you'd probably be better off looking elsewhere. BUT if you are looking for a set of badass, durable headphones to train hard with, THESE ARE THE ONES.
I was excited to get a pair of headphones that could stand up to the daily grind at the gym. I unfortunately was very disappointed when I first put them on today. At first glance they are pretty small. The ear cups are one of the smallest I've seen from an on ear headphone. I put them on and immediately I did not like the fit. I've had A LOT of expensive headphones over the years and these were the worst. The ear pads are not comfortable at all. I adjusted and adjusted more but they still felt ridiculously uncomfortable.
I tried wearing them to the gym but ended up switching back to my old headphones.
Shipping these back tomorrow.
Nothing else compares. These are true workout headphones. They are breathable, have a vented hard case, and the ear pads even come off to be hand washed. They have good noise cancellation, great sound quality, and are very comfortable to wear. I would highly recommend these headphones to anyone who workouts.
I ordered mine on day one and was a little hesitant about spending that much on a set of headphones, but I must say that they are worth every penny. I've tried a lot of cheaper headphones and none of them ever seemed to stack up. These, however, definitely justify the cost.
The first thing you will notice is the impressive quality of the packaging and awesome look and sturdiness of the included case. The headphones themselves are a unique design and feel and look solid. They have some weight to them, but they are not bulky and don't feel heavy on your head. They are hinged just above the ear cups and fold compact in the case. The headband frame and hinges appear to be metal and the rest of the construction is a solid plastic that feels like it will easily survive typical headphone wear and tear. The ear cups are well padded and covered in a sweat proof material that can be removed for hand washing. The headband is padded as well and is covered in the same material. The headphones are one size fits all and fit snug on my (bald) head, but are not uncomfortable, and they don't feel like they will slide off easily during a workout.
The controls are all on the right ear cup, well-placed, and easy to distinguish with your fingers while you are wearing it. You can control the volume up and down, play, pause, next and previous track; answer, reject and hang up calls; and you can even mute/un-mute your music by pressing the bull logo which will allow you to hear outside noise without taking the headphones off. While your music is playing, you won't hear much at all of the outside world. The headphones do a good job of sealing it all out.
Now to how they sound. Obviously everyone has different opinions on what sounds good to them, but in my subjective opinion, you will not be disappointed by these. They have a rich, clean sound (courtesy of Harman/JBL) with plenty of volume. I have them paired to my Galaxy S8+ set to 67% volume and they are plenty loud without having to turn the headphones themselves up all the way. They are capable of reproducing solid bass and crisp highs, but it is important to know you really need an equalizer feature on whatever music app you are using in order to get them to their full potential. A flat signal from your player is going to sound disappointing, but that is because the headphones are designed for you to tweak your source to your liking and not come pre-configured to assault your ear drums with bass out of the box. I have my music app EQ'd how I like it and to me the headphones sound excellent.
The rest of the package includes an audio cable for plugged in listening, a USB charge cable, very nice storage case, and plenty of instructions (although the diagrams are a little small and hard to see).
Overall, I am extremely pleased with this purchase and I have to say The Rock came through on his promise to deliver the first high quality set of headphones designed to sound great and hold up during vigorous workouts. I can't think of anything I don't like about them and as long as they are durable and keep performing over time, I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for solid, workout worthy headphones.
The UA Sport Wireless Train Headphones — Project Rock Edition's have been as close as it gets to amazing since I have got them. Although my ears feel a little pain, it's probably just a personal thing. They fit like a glove! The JBL sound quality is also amazing! This collaboration between UA and Project Rock continues to impress, and if you are a gym rat, these are a must buy!
Why didn't anyone thing of this earlier? Great features! Thanks Rock! -TonightsPoison
