The headphone’s sporty footprint goes beyond the use of Dwayne Johnson as a poster boy, as the accessory comes coated with a special Under Armor fabric to favor ventilation and quick drying of the cushions, important elements in the device’s useful life. The design of the earpiece even allows the removal of the pads for washing.

From a sound point of view, the JBL headset comes with 40mm diameter drivers with frequency response ranging from 20Hz to 20kHz. The sound signature is crafted with JBL Charged, with a promise of more vibrant sound and enhanced bass. The noise canceling, in addition to being adjustable, has special modes for conversation (TalkThru) and to keep the user alert to the outside world without compromising the sound (Ambient Aware).

The accessory comes with a carrying case and battery sufficient for 45 hours (35 hours with ANC on). Officially sold in Brazil, the phone is guaranteed for 12 months by JBL.
