Product Description

Color: White

Polk Audio's new UltraFit Sports Headphone Series is a rethinking from the ground up of performance, comfort and durability - the three characteristics serious athletes need most in a pair of headphones. Serious music lovers too will value the UltraFit Series because of its undeniably impressive sonic performance. The UltraFit 500 is our entry model and is designed to sit in the flange of your ear canal, while the ear piece hook insures a snug yet comfortable fit. The UltraFit 500 does not use in-line controls or a microphone, but has been designed to assure you of moderate noise suppression, so you're always aware of your environment. A short (14") cable, frees you to wear an MP3 player on a sleeve or collar for the utmost in hassle-free and tangle-free connections.

Definitely good enough sound and very reasonably priced.

I bought these highly-advertised headphones for long-distance running and couldn't get them to stay in my ears standing still.

It takes a few tries to get the flexible ear hook just right, but they fit nicely after be correctly adjusted.

Ever since buying a nice home theater system, I have been searching for a pair of headphones that match my home theater quality for on the go occasions. I've always loved polk's sound quality, and I bought these as soon as they came out, even before they were on Amazon.com (I'm back to buy a second pair). I love these headphones, they sound great, fit comfortably, and do not have as much cord noise as other headphones. These are great for jogging, or being at the gym, and I use these just at work too. It takes a few tries to get the flexible ear hook just right, but they fit nicely after be correctly adjusted. Now I'm just crossing my fingers hoping that polk comes out with some headphones without the ear strap, for more laid back music listening; although the ear strap is good for sports/active activities.

Pros
-great sound quality
-fit snugly and comfortably
-adjustible cord length
-little or no cord noise

Cons
-ear strap takes a few tries to get just right (I'm not going to dock a star for this because I like that the ear hook is adjustible, I'm just letting you know that you may have to work on it at first)

Also these headphones are not noise-isolating (like the klipsch headphones). This can be a pro or a con depending on what you want. I like to be able to hear cars, dogs etc... while jogging, but if you will be in a gym mostly you may want noise isolating headphones or just turn these up more ;)

Color Name: Black
I purchased these headphones so I could listen to music while running. I had tried other brands of ear buds, but they all seemed to work their way out of my ears after just a few minutes.

Pros: These headphones stay on no matter how hard I shake my head. They do a great job of staying in my ears and the silicone ear tips, while noticeable, are fairly comfortable. I have been able to run for miles without having to worry about having to push the ear tips back in my ears.

The different length cords allow you to wear your just music player just about anywhere. The flat design makes life a whole lot easier because they are practically tangle-free.

Cons: With the Polk Audio name, I expected better sound quality. The mids are in your face, but there's not much else. The bass and treble are almost non-existent. I tried all the ear tips thinking it was maybe due to a bad fit, but it made no difference. It's the type of sound you'd expect from the earbuds packaged with an iPod or the low end earbuds you could find in the checkout aisle at your local superstore.

Getting the headphones to sit properly in my ears is also quite a chore. It's one thing to successfully get the ear tip to fit in my ear, but wrapping the ear piece around my ears requires a lot of wiggling to ensure everything fits properly.

If I had to do it again, I would have explored more options before making this purchase. I would be hesitant to recommend these to a friend, especially for what they cost.

Color Name: White
Previously used the following headphones/earbuds with no luck:
Sony MDR-AS40EX Active Style Headphones Earbud Style (Black) (left earpiece lost sound after 1 yr)
MEElectronics M6-CL Sport Sound-Isolating In-Ear Headphones for iPod, iPhone, MP3/CD/DVD Players - Clear (hurt the ear, poor quality)
Nike+ Vapor Headphones (Black) (great fit, poor quality, broke 3 pairs)
Sony MDR-AS20J Active Style Headphones with Soft Loop Hangers - Black (just do NOT stay in ears)
Philips ActionFit SHQ3000/28 Earhook Headphones Tuned for Sports (poorly made, two pairs went kaput)

So I finally tried these out after tossing the MME earbuds that I used for two weeks to replace the Sony earbuds. Sigh. But to my pleasant surprise, these are GREAT! And I am a tough cookie to please with sport earbuds. But these blow away the other brands.

In the box, you have several additional sizes of the actual in ear pieces as well as the little rubber fitter. This means that you can adjust the size of each to fit your ear canal and fit into the anti-helix of the outer ear. This ensures that you can find maximum comfort and maximum stability.

They're a little hard to fit at first, but are great once you get them right. I keep checking them to make sure that they aren't falling out, because they feel like they aren't in. They're that comfortable. You can trust them. They won't BUDGE! As for sound: at first I thought the volume was too low. But, after listening a while, I realized that it was just that the sound quality is just better than I'm used to. Most headphones have background noise that makes them seem annoyingly loud. These have NONE of that! You can hear delicate sounds like guitar "fretting" and even singers' saliva clearly! Also, I appreciate the shape of the wires. Unlike normally round wires, these are thick and flat (I call them linguine shaped). These will be very less likely to tangle and knot. I also like the included accessories like the extension wire. Getting your arm caught in the wire will sever the connection, instead of yanking them out of your ears. They also come with a very handy zipper case for storage. I'm very happy with this purchase, and recommend them highly. I removed a star for the slight difficulty when initially fitting them. Even once they are fitted, they don't go on and come off as easily as others. But, I guess that's what you're buying when you go for "UltraFit" headphones.
