Boost Your Run with UA Wireless FLASH Headphones Featuring Storm Proof Technology and Bionic Hearing

Music brings focus and passion to any workout, but tangled cords or lack of waterproofing can waste time and prevent athletes from reaching their personal best. Under Armour offers a solution with UA® True Wireless FLASH headphones, engineered with JBL Charged Sound to give high performers an extra boost. These waterproof headphones were designed by runners, for runners and athletes looking to push their limits without distraction.

Lightweight and fully cord-free, the Bluetooth® enabled headphones automatically connect with your smartphone or smartwatch after initial set-up, allowing runners to get real-time in-ear coaching from Under Armour’s MapMyRun app. Combined with Under Armour’s HOVR Connected running shoes, runners can get advanced running metrics to take their performance to the next level. Three Sport Flex Fit ear tip sizes guarantee a secure fit and, with UA Storm Proof waterproof technology and an IPX7 immersion rating, these rugged earbuds are made to endure sweat sessions and outdoor elements.  

"Under Armour's mission is to make athletes better. To meet the demands of peak performers, we partnered with JBL, a leading sound expert, to develop a cutting edge, truly wireless sport headphone that removes all distractions and allows runners to stay focused on the road."
- Brian Pitstick, Director of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Under Armour

JBL Charged Sound and 5.8mm drivers pump out rich bass, crystal clear mids and smooth highs, providing the motivation to maximize any workout. The UA True Wireless FLASH delivers 5 hours of battery life with a charging case capable of 25 hours of total battery life to the headphones, perfect for a weeks’ worth of long runs or cross-training sessions in the gym.

Bionic Hearing, a unique JBL sound and mic technology, enables athletes to hear surroundings with two sound technologies – TalkThru and Ambient Aware. With TalkThru Technology, music is lowered and speech is amplified by a microphone with a touch of a button, making it easy to chat with a workout partner or trainer between sets. In Ambient Aware mode, a runner can still listen to their music while amplifying background noises such as cars, cyclists or passersby, so they can stay aware of their surroundings.

"The UA True Wireless FLASH proves that sound quality doesn't need to be sacrificed in a tough and durable wireless headphone. We're excited to continue growing our partnership with Under Armour and to make a splash in the true wireless market together for the first time."
- Michael Mauser, President of Lifestyle Audio at HARMAN, JBL parent company
