JBL® And Under Armour® Deliver Versatile Athletic Headphone For All-Day Wear: UA Sport Wireless Flex

STAMFORD, Conn. — December 6, 2017 — Harman International — a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. focused on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets — and Under Armour today announced the launch of UA Sport Wireless Flex headphones. These wireless neckband headphones epitomize intuitive, sleek design, remarkable sound quality and impressive versatility to provide athletes with a secure fit when at the gym or on-the-go.

UA Sport Wireless Flex is built with bend-and-stay Flex Zones in the neckband for adjustable fit and all-day comfort. Users can adjust the Flex Zones for continuous comfort or in-workout stability. UA Sport Wireless Flex includes a best-in-class Speed Charge Battery, which allows for one hour of playback with just five minutes of charging time, and plays for over 11 hours when fully charged. The headphones feature an embedded RunSafe™ LED feature with three flashing modes for increased visibility and safety in low-light conditions.

UA Sport Wireless Flex is tuned with JBL Charged Sound, a sport-optimized, acoustic research-based sound signature — custom developed by JBL for Under Armour headphones. To ensure a secure fit, the headphones feature two-piece Sport Flex eartips in three size options. Magnetic earbuds eliminate the hassle of untangling cords, enabling quick access when heading to the gym or receiving a phone call. For convenience, four simple buttons enable athletes to control their music, take phone calls, control the RunSafe LED, and even trigger Siri® and Google Now™.

“UA Sport Wireless Flex headphones are made for the modern athlete with customized fit at the neck and ears, bold, powerful JBL Charged Sound, and RunSafe LED that helps keeps athletes safe,” said Dave Rogers, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Audio, Harman. “We’ve married the always-on convenience of a neckband headphone with the authentic athletic features that the UA-JBL partnership stands for, to enable a seamless transition from the gym to home, and everything in between.”
