Performance

We have been testing the headphone for about a week, especially while we are working out and we are pretty impressed with how it has delivered. We did not experience any connection issues with the Bluetooth headphone while being used with our Android and iOS devices. The in-ear headphones also did not fall out from our ears while having a run which is excellent compared to other sports headphone we have tested.

As for the sound performance, the UA Sports Wireless Heart Rate Headphone delivers a decent sound, which is really clear and crisp. The only thing we noticed when it comes to sound performance is its bass response. The bass is a little bit lacking but if you are not that keen on the bass, then this Bluetooth headphone is a go.

In terms of the heart rate sensor, the component is located on the left earbud that has flickering green-colored LED light that irradiates the capillaries and measures the blood as it flows. For us, the heart rate sensor is a very cool feature, especially if you are an active sports or fitness enthusiast. So far, the heart rate monitor feature of the UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate Headphone turns out to be accurate for our fitness activities.

Conclusion

So if you are an Under Armour fan, a JBL fan, or a sports and fitness enthusiast, it is not bad to try and consider this in-ear Bluetooth sports headphone. The UA Sports Wireless Heart Rate Headphone is one of the sports headphones that have a pretty decent performance and features that are perfect for your daily audio and sports purposes.
