Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000

PC Magazine
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 earphone pair delivers excellent noise cancellation, but its bulky battery compartment and audio performance quirks are drawbacks.
  • Pros: Powerful audio performance with deep bass, no distortion at top volumes. Secure in-ear fit. Comes with a multitude of eartips in varying shapes and sizes.
  • Cons: Doesn't output audio in passive mode. Audio can sound muffled on certain tracks. External battery and NC circuitry compartment is bulky, awkward. Uses AAA battery, not a rechargeable options.

Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 in-ear headphones sound and feel good

2 December 2012
  • Summary: The Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000's noise-canceling powers are just average for an in-ear NC design, but anyone looking for midprice headphones with lots of bass and detail will love this set.
  • Pros: The Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 active noise-canceling in-ear headphones feature a big, powerful sound while maintaining a comfortable fit.
  • Cons: The cable lacks a microphone and smartphone controls, and playback requires power, so the music dies along with your battery.

These in-ear headphones have active noise cancelling to cut out ambient chatter

Good Gear Guide.au
1 December 2012
  • Summary: Polk Audio's foray into the not-so-popular world of noise cancelling in-ear headphones is a solid one: the UltraFocus 6000 headphones have good sound and competent active noise cancelling to complement the passive in-ear isolation. Our main issue is with the bulk of the noise cancelling's in-line battery pack and volume control. The sensation of noise cancelling with in-ear headphones is also a strange one -- moreso than with over-the-ear headphones.
  • Pros: Excellent passive and active noise cancelling, Good sound, pleasant bass and treble response
  • Cons: Bulky in-line battery pack, In-ear noise cancelling isn't for everyone
