Polk UltraFocus 8000 Review

Digitaltrends
4 April 2013
  • Conclusion: While not inexpensive, there is a lot to like about the Polk Audio UltraFocus 8000 Active Noise-Cancelling headphones. Good engineering, excellent build quality, and superior sonic performance makes them a better alternative to the noise-cancelling models from Beats or even our beloved...
  • Pros: Remarkably comfortable, Solid construction and engineering, Clean midrange with good detail retrieval and soundstage depth, Excellent travel case and collection of accessories
  • Cons: If the battery dies, so does the music, Poor noise isolation, average noise cancelling, Expensive, Bass is taut but not necessarily meaty

  • Cons: Doesn't output audio in passive mode. Noise cancellation adds audible hiss. Uses AAA batteries rather than a rechargeable option.
