What We Think:
Polk Audio's new UltraFit Sports Headphone Series is a total rethinking from the ground-up of sport performance, comfort and durability -- the three principal traits athletes and serious exercisers need most in a pair of good headphones. The Polk UltraFit 2000 'neckband' fit is extra-desirable for listeners not wishing to choose the in-ear monitor [IEM] or earbud route and delivers about the best fit stability of any headphone type other than deep in-ears. Daily commuters and music lovers will highly value the Polk 'UltraFit' 2000 because of its impressive sonics -- perhaps tops in the UltraFit series -- and uber-tough build construction designed to handle whatever you gotta' throw at it in the course of a standard workday: moisture, sweat, sand, mud or even Norwegian death metal.The Polk Audio UltraFit 2000 is a classic active-use 'neckband' behind-the neck design with the added feature of a 3-button in-line remote control plus microphone for your iPod, iPad or iPhone. Android users are not left out with the 2000a Black/Green option. All controls are located on the right earpiece.
The UltraFit 2000 comes with a short, ultra flexible tangle-free planar-type headphone cable measuring about 4ft in useful length. A provided shirt clip helps snug and tidy up any excess cable slack, if needed. The Polk UltraFit Series 2000 headphones come with a (increasingly rare) Nokia adapter cable included, along with handy extra sets of silicone-based and foam-type earpad cushion replacements. Polk even thoughtfully includes a set of special 'cold weather' shearling earpad cushions, perfect for our own below-freezing Montana early mornings -- which is pretty much every morning up these parts! The 1 year manufacturer's warranty is free with a Polk 'authorized headphone dealer' purchase receipt from HeadRoom!
