Horrible audio quality & comfort!

  • Pros: Styling
  • Cons: The ear fittings are uncomfortable, and the audio quality is worse than the free pair of ear buds you get from airlines!

Very Poor sounding headphones

William A., Newegg
14 July 2013
  • Summary: There are plenty of in ear headphones that sound much better. We had these for several hours and had to return them because of bad design and horrible sound. Again, I am just amazed the Polk actually put their name on this.
  • Pros: I suppose you could say they fit well "after" you figure out exactly how to put them in your ears.
  • Cons: The sound was absolutely horrible. mid range on up just disappears even compared to cheap headphones. Bass is present but muffled. For laughs and giggles, we took off the little rubber pieces and just held the headphones close. mid range on up returned but it was very flat and hollow.

Finally, excellent headphone design!

Elango C., Newegg
26 April 2012
  • Pros: I'm glad to have bought these headphones. Finally, someone understands the importance of design in making a high-quality, durable product. I read the reviews, but when they arrived today and I saw that the box came with a preview flap that held together with magnets, it set even higher expectations than I already had. I made my mind to always treat these with kid gloves. Here are the things I've noticed:
  • Cons: Well, I've had them for less than an hour, so I can't comment on durability from experience. But even so, headphones usually die a death from fraying where the wire meets the stiff sheath of the plug. Given the design I've seen so far, I'm expecting it won't be an issue.

Broken after only 6 months

Anonymous, Newegg
26 April 2012
  • Summary: These were a comfortable experience but not durable. I'm not likely to buy another pair again.
  • Pros: Very comfortable in ear design. Nice long cord and secure fit with great sound, and as a nice side bonus they never seem to tangle. You pay a premium for these headphones and if you don't put them through their paces they're likely going to make you happy for a very long time but if you run with these long enough they break the same as cheap pairs. These didn't even last a year and I wouldn't consider my use of them even close to aggressive.
  • Cons: After using these for six months the long cord has a break that causes the sound to cut in and out. I went searching for replacement cords but it looks like if i want to get them functioning again I'm going to have to pay for a whole new pair.

Best Performance Headphones I've Purchased!

Jon B., Vanns
20 April 2012
  • Excerpt: I purchased these headphones since my 7.2 surround sound is Polk Audio that I have been very impressed with, I figured I would give their headphones a chance and Im super happy that I did. These headphones have great clarity, great treble and last but, not least great bass. These headphones will shock anyone on how much bass they put in your ear canal without robbing from the clarity & treble!

Well Designed

Christopher J., Newegg
28 January 2012
  • Pros: Finally, a company took the time to design sport earphones that stay in the ear, are comfortable, and sound great. Take your time to read the instructions to get a good fit. Then go exercise and forget they're in your ears.
  • Cons: None
