Customer Reviews

And they come with a wonderfully soft and also retro in a timeless way bag to store them!
Suzanne Amara
The band across the top is lightly cushioned as well, however when I use them for a reasonably long period of time the top of my head gets a little sore.
Alex King
Overall I was greatly impressed by the sound quality of the headphones, the stylish look, and the sturdy construction.

Color Name: Brown Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Polk Audio Buckle Headphones are part of Polk's Heritage Collection. I recently received these headphones and will go into specific details below. I will also update my review based on my continued experience with them if necessary.

Build
There are two colors to choose from, a `Buckle Brown' model with bronze and off-white features, and a `Buckle Black' model with silver features. The headphones themselves feel semi-clunky due to the ear cups. The ear cups have thick padding which sit around the ear, creating a seal - eliminating noise coming in, as well as noise going out (feel free to blast that music - no one will hear any leakage!). The ear cups are attached to a ball joint which enable them to swivel into different positions to get the most comfort for your particular head.

Polk has also added some padding to the underside of the connector for long-term use. I have not yet used these for any pro long period of time (longer than 2 hours) so I can't yet comment on the long-term comfort, though, they feel nice. I have yet to notice any headphone pressure that often occurs. The build quality of the headphones is solid. They are very sturdy.

The Buckle headphones have a small control wheel on the right side of the headband. This is used to play/pause music on mobile devices, however, I noticed it did not work with my android device that well. Upon looking up the product, it seems to be more catered towards iOS-based devices.

Sound Quality
My wife and I spent some time listening to these headphones and noticed some variation between similar tunes. Specifically, I'd like to comment on a few rock songs that semi similar (Chicago "25 or 6 to 4″ and Green Day's "Brain Stew" which have a similar guitar riff).

Color Name: Brown Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've known the Polk Audio brand for over a decade now due to their wide range of speaker products but have not owned any of them. I did audition a pair many years ago and remember they sounded very good for the price. Up until now they have not had any headphones in their lineup so I was naturally skeptical about these..similar to when BOSE did the same. With that said one listen and that skepticism immediately disappeared. I was very surprised at the excellent sound quality. The sound is very balanced and clear allowing you to hear minute details especially in the background. The bass is deep and does not easily distort. The mids are nicely separated from the lows and highs. The highs are smooth and distinct with no shrillness. Overall the sound is not fatiguing which means it makes you want to use them for hours. They are also very efficient so I did not need a separate amplifier to drive them fairly loud when used with portable music players such as Iphone, Ipod, PSP etc.

Build quality is very nice and the design is uniquely stylish mixing old school with modern. The headphones are not heavy or light but just right...it doesn't feel cheap because it has a good weight to it. They are comfortable and are a good size despite being an over the ear design. I have not had a chance to test the mic but the integrated volume rocker dial/button on the body of the headphones is a nice design and works very well with my Iphone. Play/Pause by pushing the rocker dial/button is very easy but for track skipping it takes a little practice to time the button presses. Holding in the rocker also activates the Iphone's voice control. The detachable cord is a perfect length for portable use but may be too short for home use when attached to a receiver or amplifier. The included 1/4" stereo plug adapter and soft carry pouch is a nice bonus. Overall I would definitely recommend these excellent headphones.

Like other reviewers mention, they do not travel well, and the cloth bag they include is pointless in my opinion. Sound quality is great, I would rank them higher than my v-moda crossfade LP(original) but not quite at the m100 level for mids and highs. I find the bass lush and pronounced but for me that's a positive! Good for home use, sound leaks a bit at high volume.

These headphones are killer. If you like Polk car or home speakers, you will love these headphones. I have compared these to Sennheiser Momentum over-the-ears and Polk Ultrafocus 8000's, both of which I also own. The buckles are my all-around favorite.

Style: Style is subjective, but in my opinion, these have the competition beaten by a substantial margin. Build quality is also superb. The "buckle" pieces are actual metal, and the headband and ear cups are real leather.

Comfort: Although they are a little on the heavy side, they are extremely comfortable. The cups just feel sublime against my head, with just the right amount of padding, soft leather, and the perfect amount of tension. The cups are also the perfect size, unlike the Momentums which are much too small. I can wear these for hours without discomfort in the form of physical fatigue or aural fatigue (as described below).

Sound: Like I said, if you like other Polk products, you will love these. Polk's Ultrafocus 8000's stray from their typical sound and are much more dynamic and lively, but the Buckle strictly adheres to Polk's traditional smooth, natural silky sound. My favorite part of these headphones is the mids. They are so lush, soft, warm, and full that it is indescribable. The bass is also silky smooth, if not a little more pronounced than some of the competition. The treble is slightly subdued, but it makes for a very pleasant listening experience without any harshness, sibilance, or resulting fatigue. These are less articulate than the Ultrafocus 8000's and less lively than the Momentums, but that's what I love about them. A lot of people praise the mids in the Momentums, however I feel like the mids in the Buckles are far superior.
