One of the most sensible endorsement deals in the professional sports world is audio/headphones. Almost EVERY athlete, pro and amateur, warm up with some sort of headphone in, or on, their ears (some guys at local gyms even play with them in, but they don’t get picked for runs very often. Just a little advice). Just last month, we brought you details on the new collab from Under Armour and JBL Audio, the UA Sport Wireless and Sport Wireless Heart Rate. Combining killer JBL sound with Under Armour fitness tracking, including a built in heart rate tracker inside the headphones, JBL/UA killed two birds with one earbud.
Last year, JBL partnered with Under Armour and Steph Curry to also release a pair of wireless headphones in the colors of the Bay – royal and yellow – as part of a partnership and endorsement. This year, to coincide with the release of the Under Armour Curry 3 in black/camo, JBL is set to release the Curry headphones in the same color scheme. For lovers of all things Curry, the ‘phones pull direct inspiration from the shoe, with taxi yellow hits for the SC logos and black and yellow detailing on the wires and volume controls/microphone. Also included is a 12 month membership in the MapMyRun program. Here is the full spread from JBL:
JBL and Under Armour today announced a Stephen Curry Edition of the UA Sport Wireless headphones, out now. The headphone highlights a black and yellow design, matching the new Curry 3 SC Camo shoe from Under Armour, also announced this week. The headphone joins the line-up of JBL and Under Armour headphones including UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate and UA Sport Wireless headphones launched last week.
The UA Sport Wireless Stephen Curry Edition headphone pairs JBL’s Signature Sound with Under Armour’s best-in-class standards for premium sport performance. The headphone is built for durability and features an IPX 5 rating built to withstand sweat and water. In addition, JBL’s Twistlock™ technology guarantees the headphone will never fall out while the Flexsoft™ finishing provides long-lasting comfort. The wireless headphone eliminates the distractions of headphone cables, meaning less hassle on the basketball court or pavement for a more focused workout every time.
Customers that purchase the headphone will receive a complimentary 12-month MapMyRun® Premium membership, valued at $29.99. MapMyRun is a part of the Under Armour Connected Fitness suite of apps, with a global community of more than 180 million people worldwide.

Us again. If you want premium sound in a little speaker, or just don’t enjoy the bulkiness of over-the-ear headphones, the JBL system can’t be beat. We have had a pair for a year now and the range of over 50 feet, the durability, and fit in the ear, plus the sound quality, are all great.
The Curry edition wireless headphones can be purchased here for $149.95, available now. No word on any other colors, but what else would you need?
