Awesome product!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: Sound quality. Polk Audio shrunk down to headphone size.
  • Cons: Plastic trim holding the head cushion pads.

Sound great but uncomfortable

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: Comfort, Style, Usable Controls on Headset, Superb Sound!
  • Cons: No passive mode (even though I would rarely use it anyway)

wasn't entirely satisfied

rob, Crutchfield
19 November 2012
  • Summary: I have tinnitus and am a landscaper. I wanted noise cancelling headphones for mowing, trimming hedges... I wear Bose AE 2s now. I got the Polks. Note... They do not work unless switched on and they are in noise cancelling mode all the time.
  • Pros: they look solid, well built and are comfortable. They also sound good with the volume turned up. The noise cancelling works. You definitely notice the low frequencies drop off when you switch them on. I just can't listen to loud music and wanted more fidelity out of them.
  • Cons: I did not like the range of the headphones at low volume. I also didn't like the hum of the noise cancelling circuitry and the battery cover. I could never justify the price when I have cheaper headphones that sound better. I'm going to try the PSB's though before I'm done.

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?
  • 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
