Polk always seems to make the best bang for the buck
22 August 2014
Summary: I have tried over 15 types of in ear audio earbuds, and across the board, Polk beats JBL and Bose hands down, especially for the money. The 3000's are even better, but the hang over ear brackets might turn off some people. These are a little more attractive.
Summary: While i had liked an over the ear brand when after several years a hinge broke they would only give me $50 on an electrical working unit with a broken hinge. I tried the Polk audio ear buds and gound them comfortable and good at noise reduction even on an aircraft. I do like them and also find them much dasier to store while traveling.
Pros: Small size, good noise reduction, a variety of ear-plugs, I found an earplug I liked
Cons: i did drop an ear plug but fortunately found it. if this had been in an airport it would be gone
Summary: Outstanding sound but don't use the "shirt clip". It felt tight when I put it on the cord for use if needed. When I tried to use it later, it caused a loud popping sound in both channels. This noise remained after I removed the shirt clip. Every time I touched the battery compartment and the cable moved, I heard a loud crackling sound which did not go away after I removed the shirt clip. Again, the sound is outstanding, good bass, mids, and highs.
Pros: Excellent sound, the product is well built and should hold up well. I like the mute with external mic feature.
Cons: That poorly designed, fifty cent shirt clip needs a better attachment point with the cable. The replacement clip was the same fit as the original.
Summary: Bought this earphones as a Xmas present fro my partner! After having issues with another vendor, I decided to buy them from Crutchfield. Got them in the time frame they specified, and so far my partner is very happy with them. Thanks!
Pros: They are working as described, sound great, comfortable , and Noise reduction functions great.
Summary: I have mine for 3weeks now and I luv it.i think its pretty good headphone out there..and you never go wrong wd crutchfield I accidentally broke mine and I call crutchfield and they will send me new one for free.....I will not hesitate to buy my electronics needs again from crutchfield they give me confidence ....thanks jack and thanks crutchfield. .....
Summary: I've owned Panasonic noise canceling earbuds previously, and tried out several other brands, but the Polks are superior. Listening to Fleetwood Mac "Rumors" album, for example, you hear so much detail, and it's well balanced. Good bass performance without being too beefy. And the flat cord design is awesome, very durable, and never gets tangled at all. The fit and feel in the ears is also nice.
Pros: Great audio detail Good bass performance without being too heavy Comfortable fit in the ears Flat cord design is sturdy and keeps cord from getting tangled
Cons: Toggle switch for the -10db option is too flimsy, should've been a button
Summary: This is just a well-engineered pair of earbuds. The sound quality is excellent, the base is awesome, and they are some of the most comfortable earbuds I've ever worn. I've listened to them on a number plane rides, and the ambient noise just fades into the distant background, leaving behind the clear, crisp music. The batter life is great, averaging around 24 to 36 hours of continuous listening time.
Pros: Sound quality and battery life.
Cons: Volume function doesn't work on Android phones or any other devices.
Summary: These headphones sound really great. I listen mostly to rock and heavy metal and the bass response is the best by far that I've heard from any headphones that I've used (Sennheiser HD595, PX100, Bose Tri-Port, Apple earbuds). It sounds like you have a dedicated subwoofer inside your head! I also listen to classical, jazz and some pop music and so far I haven't been disappointed with the performance of these headphones.
Pros: - really good sound quality - lots of bass - noise isolating + active noise cancelling - very comfortable to wear all day - iPhone controls (also works with MacBook Retina) - Push-To-Hear Ambient Control (no need to take off earbuds to hear outside sounds) - slim plug can be accommodated by most if not all iPhone cases - high quality carrying case - good battery life - replaceable battery (no need to be tethered to a charging device, just replace and go! - no waiting)...
Cons: - build quality of the battery compartment/control circuit can be improved (cables and earbuds are really good) - does not include home theater adaptor (as per Polk website and as of this writing, it's included)
