Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock seems to be just about everywhere these days. If you happen to follow him or Project Rock on Instagram or Twitter you know that he is easily one of the hardest working men in show business. In addition to that, it’s no secret The Most Electrifying Man in ALL of Entertainment is an absolute beast in the gym. His gym legend might only be rivaled by his legendary pancake cheat days. If you are one of the many, many people going to the gym just trying to make yourself a little bit healthier than you were yesterday, you know the importance of music. Listening to a good song in the gym can power you through that last set or push you for that last mile on the treadmill.
Personally, I generally won’t wear over-ear headphones in the gym. They will almost always be earbuds, simply because over-ear headphones tend to fall off fairly easily. I’m not saying earbuds are perfect. Sometimes you just can’t get the right fit and they end up falling out anyway. Another thing you need to think of is ear fatigue. When I go to the gym I’m usually there for about 2 hours. Most of the time when I’m done my ear canals hurt just a bit.
That is where the Project Rock collaboration comes in. Which is very basically a collab between The Rock and Under Armour to create gear suitable for training. It seems like they are trying to cover everything you might need for a trip to the gym. Shirts, pants, bottom layers, shoes, bags just about everything really. The Rock has now taken it one step further and announced a pair of over-ear headphones built for the gym.
They’re here 🎧 Like you, my gym time is critical. It’s our time to shut the world out and anchor in. I prefer training in “over the ear” headphones, but have been consistently disappointed (pissed is a better word) with every pair, from every brand that just couldn’t handle my workouts. I thought if no one is going to design headphones BUILT FOR TRAINING, then I would. And I’d make them the best. Almost 2 years later, they’ve arrived. Our next @underarmour collection DROPS NEXT WEEK 6/28. #ProjectRockWireless #Durability #Functionality #HighQuality #BadAss
To directly quote from The Rock’s Instagram;

One thing we can be very sure of, these headphones will be high quality and wireless. The Rock seems to be Quality Control for anything Project Rock related so these will get his stamp of approval. Even though these will be Under Armour branded they will be made by JBL so the sound quality should be there too.
If you want to buy a pair they will be released June 28th. You’re gonna have to be quick though. I think the last pair of shoes released under the Project Rock name sold out in right around 30 minutes. I can’t guarantee it, but I will definitely try to get a pair. Will you? Let us know in the comments if you do, or what you think about them in general.
