Polk Audio UltraFit 3000 Headphones Review

Workout Headphones PRO

Polk Ultrafit 3000 Sports HeadphonesThe UltraFit 3000 Headphones are the final installment of Polk Audio’s new line of sports headphones.  While they’re the most expensive on new line of headphones, they’re also the best choice.

Pros

Tangle Free Cables.  That’s right, cables, not cable.  With the UltraFit 3000 you get the option of 2 different cables: 14 inche, 41 inch with in-line controls.

Secure Fit.  Often times there’s some complaint about sacrificing comfort for a secure fit, but the UltraFit 3000 offer both.  Check out the video below to see exactly how they fit.

Options.  As you’d find out in more detail below Polk Audio has done a great job of offering a ton of options, from multiple size cables, different size ear tips, colors, and more.

Cons

Honestly it was difficult to find a con.  There’s been some concern expressed about the durability of the in-line remote control, but we’ve heard no complaints to date.

Our Review

Very similar in appearance to the UltraFit 500 and UltraFit 100, and while we liked both of those models, we love the UltraFit 3000.  Unlike the 500 or 1000, the 3000 are in-ear canal headphones.  So while the others site on the flange of your ear, these fit snugly into your ear-canal providing a superior noise isolating effect.  We also noticed that these headphones tend to sound a bit higher quality, which we’re attributing to the difference in earbuds: in-ear canal versus in-ear.

As you can see below you can choose from several different available colors.  While black/red will definitely be the most popular, if you’re looking to stand out you might try the white/orange.

Polk Audio UltraFit 3000 ColorsAnother feature the Polk is really pushing is the “environmental awareness.”  What this essentially means is these headphones are noise isolating, not noise cancelling.  So, while they will block out a good bit of noise they won’t completely cancel it allowing you to be potentially safer if you’re prone to jogging around your neighborhood or biking near live traffic.

And last, but certainly not least we can’t forget that Polk included the option to use a cable with built-in microphone.  Since most people are using their iPhone, Android or other smart phone to double as their MP3 player this is becoming an essential feature.
