Review: JBL/UA Sport Wireless Headphones

JBL make loudspeakers. Under Armour makes training clothes and runners. Both companies have come together to make head- and earphones. It’s like two good friends hooking up who you never thought would. It’s cool, but a bit strange a little unsettling nonetheless.
