Polk Audio UltraFit3000
9 September 2012
Conclusion: The secure fit and laudable audio performance make Polk Audio's UltraFit3000 ideal for the gym, but some minor issues hold back its rating a bit.
Pros: Quality audio performance for the price. Exercise-focused design is moisture-resistant. Lightweight, secure fit. Comes with wide array of eartip and cable length options. Includes iPhone/iPad/iPod touch in-line controls.
Cons: Fit is always secure but can be inconsistent from ear-to-ear, affecting stereo image. Very slight distortion on deep bass tracks at maximum volume.
Excerpt: Sweating through a workout has its rewards, but one undeniable hindrance is when headphones continually pop out of your ears. Polk Audio’s UltraFit 3000 in-ear canal phones are engineered to stay wrapped around your ears no matter how many ounces of sweat you work up.
Pros: Fantastic sound. Design prevents buds from popping out. Color-coded cables let you tell left from right at a glance. Various ear bud sizes ensures comfortable fit. Carrying case is anti-microbial.
Cons: Microphone/remote works only with Apple products. Length of 14-inch and 41-inch cables are problematic, limiting where you can attach your iPod.
