Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Made Headphones…?
– Hey, what's good, guys? Welcome back to TechSmartt and it's been a while since I've checked out a brand new celebrity product. You guys can check out the playlist. It's right up there. Rihanna's made some headphones. Beyonce's made some headphones. Pizza Hut, they're a celebrity, they've made some shoes and some headphones. So, today it gets a little different. He's now stepping up to the plate. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has come up with a pair of headphones with Under Armour. They've also done Stephen Curry's shoes. I kinda dug those. You guys smell that?
What's cooking? Hopefully he's cooking up some fire. These cost 249 bucks at retail. They just came out last week. When you think of The Rock, or Dwayne Johnson, you don't really think of headphones, products too much. You think of a guy getting jacked working out and cooking up stuff in the kitchen. So, he was dropping these headphones. I did a little research. This is actually gonna get cut with the rock that I found outside. We're so close, yeah. I did a little research and I want to see what the inspiration was for The Rock Wireless is,
And I'll just let him explain. – No one was making a product specifically for people in the gym who go hardcore. You'd sweat in these. Four workouts later, you gotta throw them away because the headphones would start to stink. You'd drop them on the floor like that. They would break. These are going to be the most durable, the most functional, highest-quality sound from JBL, who I've rocked with for years. – Like, Dwayne, that just doesn't simply happen. You don't just drop a pair of headphones at the gym and they shatter in a million pieces. Maybe the ones you do, 'cause you're just jacked,
And I wish my headphones are shattering as much as you say they do. So, here they are. Let's open these up. Whoa, what did we just get? Is this a cow? A rhino? The two rocks I found outside? Wow, okay, so you get a nice carrying case. For 250 bucks, I'd hope you would. Let's open these up. Okay, so we get some accessories. Just pull this out. You get a 3.5 aux cord, micro USB to re-charge, a manual. I don't really care about that.
These things are wireless, after all. You're gonna charge them at night. So, let's see what's up. Wow, these are definitely more durable than they looked in the pictures. We have this etched and kind of rigid, not rubber, that's plastic. The calf logo, it's actually a bull. I mean, he's a brahma bull at the end of the day. Some fake screws, I mean, I'm not here to knock the man. I'm just here to let you know what's up with these and if they're worth your time, and then some on-ear ear cushions with some perforated cups. So, in theory, when you drop these on your head, you shouldn't sweat that much.
They feel heavy for sure. So, on the side, we have our power on. Volume up, volume down. They're just sticking out. They're not in where you gotta fumble around at the gym. Because after all, these are meant for the gym, exclusively for the gym. That's who his market is for this. All right, first impressions on the head. How do we feel? Do we feel stronger, weaker, or we want to go to the gym? There's only three options. They got this heavy weight to them. It's through this rigid plastic. There's not a whole lot of metal on here,
Outside of the band. Adjustable headband, of course. At the top, you know what it's gonna say. Blood, sweat, respect. That's his mantra. Can you put a bullet-proof vest on? 'Cause I got some guns you're after. So, let's go and give these a whirl. Brahma Bull, blast me with something. Here we go, so, I'm listening to the PB Jams Playlist. I'll leave a link down below. It's my new playlist. I keep updated every week on Spotify. Might do an Apple Music vid if you guys want that. Drop a like for using Spotify or Apple Music so I know,
And let's give this a shot. We're gonna do, I guess, Drake's Scorpion. Wow, there's some love put into these. The bass, I would say, is very similar to the Beats bass. There's not even this much bass in the talk-up song. Super-clear vocals. I'm not really hating on it. So, let's try out another song. Let's do XYLO Don't Panic. Ooh, la la la la la. More of like a pop tropical house upbeat song. Yeah, the vocals sound good. Like, I can hear, so that's always good, and the sound isn't leaking a whole lot. I'm at max volume.
Let's pause it up here and let's get real. So, these are 250 bucks, and check out a pair on wish. If you missed that video, I'll leave it right up there in the eye card. These are the Beats 3s. They have a cord, so they're not wireless with Bluetooth, but these were 51 bucks. So, if you want a cheap pair of headphones, maybe this is something you guys should check out. I kind of dig these, just because of how rugged they are. Where these really set themselves apart is the fact that they're inspired and endorsed by Dwayne Johnson, the guy that's like wow, I love fitness so much, I'm willing to make my arm larger than my head.
We're gonna actually try to work out, see if these things are destructible or indestructible. I'm gonna try to work out and see if I feel it. I mean, I might as well just pull them out here, F. The biggest thing I want to put to the test is Dwayne's claim every pair of headphones, when he takes them to the gym, and you drop them, they just shatter. So, let's drop these things and see if they just shatter. This isn't rocket science. You know this. If the headphone's made out metal, yeah, the cups are just gonna fold in. You're gonna be fine. It's only if you're dropping it off,
Like a 30-story building, or trying to snap these things apart. I mean, I did it once. That is it. I'm hearing some creaking. I don't think you're doing that a whole lot, but I think the only thing left to do is bump some tunes, let's run around, let's see if we can shake these things off, one. Two, if they can break with my insanely jacked workout. And three, if they're worth 250, 'cause I'm kinda mixed right now. Here we go, all right. I'm gonna try to run in place. Let's see if we can get this going.
Got the workout gear on. I don't think I've worked out this hard on the channel before. All right, I mean, if you're gonna do that. Yo, check out my form. Let me know in the comments how good my form is. It's probably awful. So, if you're at the gym, this is kinda handy, and let's say your spotter wants to be like, yo, your weak as crap, bro, you can hear him by just tapping this, and then it amplifies the atmosphere, so, pick up some more weights, bro. I mean, you can now have those conversations and, well, I'm the weak one.
I'm panting after doing what was a minute of working out. The only way is up. Blood, sweat, and disrespect. That's been everything till now. All right, I got one clapper in. Can you not, like show them that I wasn't able to do a ton of push-ups? Like, only put the two good ones I got in there. So, here's the deal with these Rock headphones. You guys gotta let me know in the comments how you're feeling. I'm kinda torn. So, for 250 bucks, these are the most rigid and most durable headphones I have ever tried out. They're definitely meant for the gym,
But to be honest, those $51 Beats I got in that wish video, that's what I'm taking to the gym now, just 'cause if I break them, it's whatever, I can grab another pair. I might be out of breath, but that's it for this video. If you guys enjoyed it, make sure you hit subscribe. Click that button right there.
