Summary: No longer must I be subjected to the inanity of the morning commute around me. These headphones not only sound excellent but I find myself enjoying my music more. I even find myself popping them on at night to chill out to. Super comfortable and most days I don't even hear the train coming.
Pros: Great sound, comfortable.
Cons: A bit big on my already huge dome. Worth it though.
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.
Summary: I'm getting more and more upset as I write this follow up review so i think I will just end it now and not ruin my Saturday...
Pros: These headphones still sound as descent today as they did when I first purchased them. However......
Cons: Given that I spent nearly $300 on these headphones, I was always UBER careful when using them. While I did take them on busiiness trips, I worried about them as though I was a first time mother. Didnt really help (or maybe it did). Within the first year, the head band started to disentergrate and...
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Sound quality Quality build On-board controls Control features Good looks
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.
Summary: For headphones that are over $300, I expect a lot from them. These stack up in every way EXCEPT durability. For this price, they should last for a long time... NOT 7 MONTHS!!!
Pros: Sound Quality: The headphones sound very good. All levels are nice and crisp. Excellent for music and movies. Noise Cancelling: Pretty decent. Perfect for screaming babies on flights and snoring roommates. Other: Overall appearance is nice. Carbon fiber looks sharp. Removable cable is awesome for...
Cons: The only bad thing I have to say about these headphones is the durability. I have had them for about 7 months and they are literally falling apart. The material that covers the headband has all but fallen off, I currently have it taped together. Today at work, the left speaker completely stopped ...
Summary: Buy it. You won't regret. If you have a Beats by Dr. Dre, do me a favor and burn those.
Pros: By far, the best headphones I have ever listened to. Bass is present without being boomy - mids and highs are very well defined. Also, it's study construction makes me believe this headphone will last for decades. After wearing these headphones, Bose QCs will feel like cheap plastic. I have liste...
Cons: Will not work without batteries. However, I believe the batteries are necessary to power some sort of internal equalizer, along with the noise cancellation.
