  • Summary: This is an amazing product. Whereas the other brand B O S E filters outside noise better, this one allows you to hear to all the notes much more clearer. If the other brand was DVD quality, this one's blueray!

Polk Audio Ultrafocus 800

KJJ, Crutchfield
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I have 2 pair of Polk speakers and the headphones have the same high quality sound. The noise reduction seems to be on par with Bose that I have tried. With music playing I can't hear my wife's screeching bird so they should work well for someone who wants these for air travel.
  • Pros: comfortable, great sound
  • Cons: none

Polk UltraFocus 8000 vs PSB M4U2

Brendan, Crutchfield
4 April 2013
  • Summary: I have had the privilege to try the PSB headphones, the Bose headphones, and the Polk Audio headphones. I currently own the PSB headphones and the Polk Audio headphones. My favorite of the three is certainly the PSB's. For the Polk Audio headphones since this is supposed to be a review on them I would say come in a close second behind the PSB's. Polks headphones are very comfortable, have outstanding sound quality, and were well built.
  • Pros: Polk provides superb sound quality, comfort, and adequate noise cancellation.
  • Cons: Are not the most attractive, some people may find the sound quality annoying after hours of use, and the noise cancellation is on at all times.

Coolness

Jayjaye, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Received my ultrafocus 8000 earlier than expected delivery date. Put the batteries and started using them right away. At first there was some kind of electronic ticking noise coming from the right earphone which disappeared after a couple of songs. The sound quality is incredible. I heard details that I didn't know existed. Bass is amazing. I have Bose and Beats, Polk Audio Ultafocus 8000 in my opinion is better than them.
  • Pros: Sound quality. Polk Audio shrunk down to headphone size.
  • Cons: Plastic trim holding the head cushion pads.

Polk Sound Quality

Gary D, Crutchfield
15 March 2013
  • Summary: Quality sound is foremost with the UltraFocus 8000. Solid bass and clarity make all music more enjoyable. The headset is very good looking and should be cool for most. The build quality is excellant. I really like the control buttons on the side of the headset and the talk feature is great for travel. Comfort is good but may become less so if worn for a long time. Noise reduction is OK but I had hoped for better.
  • Pros: Sound quality Quality build On-board controls Control features Good looks
  • Cons: Noise reduction OK but could be better

Sound great but uncomfortable

Simple Man, Crutchfield
25 February 2013
  • Summary: This review is for the Polk Audio ULTRA FOCUS 8000. Other headphones I own are the Bose QuietComfort 2 and the Sennheiser HD-558. The Bose are great for travelling and the active noise cancelling really makes a difference on a plane. The HD-558's are extremely comfortable and sound great but they don't produce any bass to speak of. I wanted a closed headphones that produced some satisfying bass so I looked for an additional pair.
  • Pros: Sound great
  • Cons: Very uncomfortable

Exceeded my expectations!

Cliff C, Crutchfield
10 February 2013
  • Summary: I tried numerous NC headphones and was just not satisfied enough to keep any until I tried these. Superb comfort, look great, small enough to travel with when in the case, and sound stellar! I have had the Bose QC3 and QC15, PSB M4U 2, Monster Inspirations. I do quite a bit of flying and these headphones cancel engine noise just as good if not better than the PSB's and Monsters. The Bose cancel the engine noise a little better but nothing to write home about.
  • Pros: Comfort, Style, Usable Controls on Headset, Superb Sound!
  • Cons: No passive mode (even though I would rarely use it anyway)

Excellent Headphones

  • Summary: As others have stated, these headphones have excellent sound quality, and they are very comfortable. The noise reduction is decent, and I think they are comparable to my Bose QC15s. I highly recommend these headphones.
  • Pros: Sound quality, comfort
  • Cons: none

Awesome, hardly noise canceling

John W, Crutchfield
6 September 2012
  • Summary: They do have some level of Noise Cancelation with a static hum when no music is played. In comparison to my high-end headphones, they don't noise cancel anything. But wait a sec, what happens if you run the Inception soundtrack through them? HOLY COW, I cannot believe headphones have drivers that throw like that! Once you are tuned into the most beautiful soundstage you have ever put onto your ears, I can guarantee you do not pickup on the outside world.
  • Pros: Highs, Mids, Lows; you name it, these babies can produce it and in perfect balance Tight Bass YOU WON'T STOP SMILING
  • Cons: Noise Cancelation

can't replace Bose

Anonymous, Crutchfield
27 August 2012
  • Summary: In an effort to replace the poor quality Bose quiet comfort 15 headphones I tried these Polk 8000. Much better build quality but can't say is that's true for long term use. Problem is the discomfort. They are heavy! Some people review that they are very comfortable. I think those people would feel comfortable with a 50 gal drum on their head as long as it was padded. I get a headache with the Polks within a few minutes due to the weight pressing down on my head.
  • Pros: The ear cups adjust by pivoting which is nice for fit. Sound quality is equal to Bose and Klipsch. (ALL head phones sound better than Beats brand.) Build quality and design is nice.
  • Cons: Too heavy. Pressure on top of head regardless of adjustment.
