As we all know music brings energy and focus to training sessions, but wired headphones annoy us and can quickly distract even the most motivated athletes. With that in mind, Under Armour has come up with its newest wearable audio tech, the UA True Wireless FLASH headphones, which it says are designed “by runners, for runners.”
This isn’t UA’s first audio device. They had their Project Rock Headphones, Sport Wireless Heart Rate, and the Sport Wireless.
The difference is that these lightweight babies are fully cord-free. And to ensure ultimate focus on your workouts instead of messing around with them, the ultra-comfortable
The UA Flash also features JBL’s Charged Sound, a sport-optimized signature sound curve. It’s 5.8mm drivers pump out rich bass, crystal clear mids, and smooth highs to motivate you to maximize any run or workout, then there’s Bionic Hearing, which enables the user to hear their surroundings. With a single tap, its TalkThru technology lowers the music volume of the device and amplifies speech making it easier to chat with someone without pulling the device out of your ear. In AmbientAware mode, a runner can have their music on while still being able to hear background noise with a quick double tap. Great for those outdoor runs. The company also said that they’d ship the device with three fitting options of the Sport Flex Fit Ear Tips.
The UA True Wireless Flash is available on both JBL.com and UnderArmour.com websites. For now, they only come in a black variant and will set you back $169.95
You’ll also get a complimentary 12-month MapMyRun® Premium membership, valued at $29.99. MapMyRun allows you to track and analyze advanced gait metrics like cadence, stride length, distance, pace, and splits. And for 2019, MapMyRun will also offer a feature that examines run data and provides the runner with real-time gait coaching. All of this information will be delivered to the runner through the UA True Wireless Flash for real-time results enabling peak performance.
