The Polk UltraFocus 6000 in-ear headphones feature battery-powered 'active' noise-cancellation all wrapped up in a singularly swanky package of mobile music traveling delight. Push-to-Hear control mutes the audio and allows conversation without having to extract the earphones every time the steward comes by.

The Polk UltraFocus 6000 NC are unique 'active' [battery-powered] noise-canceling in-ears featuring an on-cord housing with proprietary controls for Noise-Canceling and Push-to-Hear Polk technology. What's even less expected is the surprisingly big, thumpy low-end response these little headphones will pump out with no amp needed. It's likely an ideal sound for urban music, EDM and hip-hop fans but also for rockers seeking a bit of extra low-end oomph from their mobile device. The headphone operates from one single AA battery which runs for approximately 40hrs. The built-in Polk UltraFocus 6000 NC 'Push-to-Hear' button allows easy conversation without having to extract the headphones from your ears just to chat. The other salient point of the Polk UF6000 NC in-ears is their extra-easy 'hybrid' fit ergonomics which takes the best features of 'shallow-fit' earbuds and combines it with the noise-blocking / isolation ability of deeply inserted in-ear monitors [IEMs]. This convenient fit design allows newcomers and rookies to the in-ear headphone experience to immediately use and wear these without that antsy "getting used to it" acclimation curve typical of deeply seated, often invasively so, 'earplug-like' IEMs. The downside of the half in-ear design is that some ears will simply not be able to get a proper earpiece seal within the ear canal, thus rendering the UltraFocus 6000's noise-blocking ability nearly negligible.
The Polk UltraFocus 6000 NC in-ear headphone comes with a superb array of black silicone eartips in different sizes and materials. Please remember to try them all for the best fit into your particular ears -- and the best resulting sound quality. Keep in mind there are some listeners who will even use one tip type or tip size in one ear, and another size or type in the other ear. It's all about what sounds best to you so, again, feel free to experiment with all the provided Polk eartips you will find inside the box! Ty cable is flat tangle-resistant cord terminating to a right-angled jack. An increasingly hard-to-find Nokia smartphone adapter is also thoughtfully provided in the UltraFocus 6000 NC package along with a small hard-sided travel case for earphone storage and transit. The Polk 6000 NC will not operate without a battery, so its a good idea to bring an extra one on your longer travels.
