Polk Audio's new UltraFit headphone series is a rethinking from the ground-up of heavy-duty sport-oriented features, audio performance, comfort and durability -- the principal traits athletes and serious exercisers demand most in a pair of good headphones. Music lovers will also value the Polk 'UltraFit' Series because of its impressive sonics and uber-tough build construction designed to handle whatever you gotta' throw at it to power you through hard workouts: moisture, sweat, sand, mud or even Norwegian death metal.
The Polk Audio UltraFit 1000 is similar in design to the UltraFit 500 but with the added feature of a 3 button in-line remote control plus microphone for your iPod, iPad or iPhone. Like the Polk UltraFit 500 model, the 1000 is designed to sit tidily within the flange of your outer ear canal and provide moderate noise suppression that will allow you to remain aware of your surroundings -- a huge plus for staying safe jogging neighborhood streets. The Polk UltraFit 1000 comes with a short (14" inch) tangle-free flat-wound cable for short MP3 or iPhone / iPod connections, like when putting your player into an armband or shirt pocket. We highly recommend employing the provided cord clip to snug up and secure the cable as much as possible to minimize any potential for cable contact noise [aka 'cord microphonics'].
Most of the Polk UltraFit series in-ear/earbud headphones (500, 1000 and 3000 models) come with three cable length options, so you can wear your music device the way that works best for you. A long (41") cable enables you to wear your music player on your waist or pants pocket. The short (14") cable lets you to wear an iPod nano, iPod shuffle or other MP3 players on a shirt sleeve or armband. Cool stuff for gym maniacs, joggers or heavy flop-sweaters at the workplace cubicle.
