Product: Under Armour True Wireless Flash:
Everyone understands how beneficial music for training sessions can be, you likely also understand how some headphones just don’t cut it.
The Project Rock True Wireless Flash Earbuds are a pair of truly wireless earbuds by Under Armour from the Project Rock line, with the audio coming from the reputable brand, JBL. Allow me to give you a durability, performance and appearance rating.
I have had these earbuds for almost a year now, here are my thoughts:
Everything from the case to the product has been functioning optimally with no issues. The case opens and closes fine, the caribeaner is functioning as it should and it charges the earbuds without difficulty. The earbuds themselves have not seen a reduction in performance, which is great!
The charging life has been very similar to what it says on the box which is 25 hours (fully charged earbuds and case). I have not noticed any decrease in battery life.
The only flaw I have found with the durability of this product is that the case scratches somewhat easily. If you are careful you will have no problems, but sometimes we are not careful, and this case will scratch. You can just use the small plastic carrying case when going out to reduce the potential to scratch the charging case, however, you need to ensure the headphones are connected to your phone, and that you won’t need beyond 4-5 hours of battery life without a recharge.
All in all, my durability rating is 9.5/10. Everything is functioning optimally and there are no reasons to believe things will breakdown anytime soon. Like most products from the Project Rock line, they are made with quality in mind! Let’s jump into the performance rating!
Let’s first talk about how sleek this product is. With the small and truly wireless earbuds that can be transported in a low profile plastic carrying case, this product certainly does not take up much space. Even when in the charging case, it is still an overall low-profile product.
As for its connectivity, I have not had any problems. VERY occasionally they will take a little time to connect, but this is a rare occurrence and they stay connected the whole time during use. They pair together with the phone almost instantaneously and never disconnect unless you get out of range, which is about 30 feet or so.
The sound quality of these headphones is phenomenal. The base is absolutely insane while they have the right amount of volume power to meet just about anyone’s standards. To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality and volume of this product, as that is typically an area that lacks with a truly wireless earbud.
By now, you can probably tell that these earbuds are meant for those who want a low profile headphone that functions great and has perfect sound quality. Click here to check them out on Under Armour’s website, or continue reading to learn more!
Let’s talk about battery life! When I first got these headphones, I went through 9-10 training sessions with them, while also using them in numerous other scenarios, and I did not have to recharge the battery case. Simply plug it in overnight and they’re good to go for another week to 10 days (at least for my schedule). I am truly impressed with the battery life of these headphones, as battery life is often exaggerated by companies.
When it comes to using these earbuds for training purposes, I have had zero issues. They have not once come out of my ears, whether I am performing powerlifting style movements, Olympic lifting or even plyometrics such as box jumps. I have also ran with these earbuds, and they stay snug in your ear, even when sweating! They may need a minor adjustment after a while, but they are very secure in your ear overall!
A Cool Feature and My Performance Rating:
Now let’s talk about a cool feature that these earbuds have. There are truly wireless earbuds on the market that allow you to play/pause, skip songs and activate tools like Siri all through the actual earbud(s). This product is no different, it does a great job of accomplishing these functions.
However, it has a super cool feature that no other truly wireless earbud has! This is bionic hearing, which is talk thru technology. This feature allows you to press the control button on the left earbud once, which automatically lowers the volume of your music and amplifies any outside noise or voice around you.
This allows you to have conversations without the need to turn off your headphones. Yes, that’s right, when talkative Ted tries to strike up a conversation, you can at least stay somewhat in the zone by not needing to turn off your music or take your earbuds out!
All in all, I give this product a perfect 10/10 on performance. This is saying something since I don’t throw perfect scores around lightly! The sleekness, impeccable connection, great audio, outstanding battery life and of course, the talk thru technology all work too perfectly and are far too cool for this product to not receive a perfect score in performance!
When we are going to invest a significant amount of our hard-earned dollars into a product, it is ideal for the product to look great while we are using it!
We’ll start with the charging and carrying case. The charging case is made out of a flashy gold that has a matte finish. It has The Rocks signature bull logo and motto “Blood Sweat Respect” on the front. I personally love this. The low profile, black carrying case also has his logo on the outside with his motto on the inside. Both of these cases look fantastic and would make anyone proud to own this product!
Now onto the earbuds. They are black with his bull logo done in gold colouring on the outside button of each earbud. They have a nice knurl which adds great character to the product. I love the blacked-out look, with the gold logo tying everything in together to make the earbuds pop!
All in all, I give the appearance a 10/10 as well! Everything just looks too clean and streamlined with just the right amount of pop!
In my opinion, those who are athletic and want a great functioning product with perfect sound quality all while having a great product appearance is who these earbuds would suit best!
