STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. focused on connected technologies for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, and Under Armour (NYSE:UA, UAA), a global leader in innovative performance footwear, apparel and equipment, 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 RunSafeTM 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 NowTM.
