The Good The Polk UltraFit 3000 is a sports in-ear-canal model (with an around-the-ear bendable hook) that offers a sweatproof design, decent sound, and comes with a plethora of accessories, including multiple eartips and two swappable cords, including one that has an Apple-friendly remote with built-in microphone.
The Bad Not everybody will get a secure fit -- if you don't, bass response will be reduced and the earphones will sound thin.
The Bottom Line Since they won't fit everyone equally well, the Polk UltraFit 3000 headphones will seem great to some users and not so great to others.
Polk's sporty UltraFit 3000 headphones have lots of pluses and a few minuses
Last year Polk Audio, which made a name for itself in the speaker world, announced a new line of. The line includes a mix of in-ear, on-ear, and in-ear-canal models that come in a variety of colors and range in price from $49.95 to $99.95.
While I'm a little tardy reviewing the higher-end UltraFit 3000 in-ear model, which is available in three colors (black/red, white/gray, and white/orange), the good news is the price on it has dropped to $79.99, making it a more attractive buy.
When you open the packaging for the UltraFit 3000, the first thing you'll notice is that it comes with a plethora of accessories. You get a zippered, vented protective case, a 41-inch cable with an in-line, Apple-friendly remote (with built-in microphone), a 14-inch cable for those who run with a device in an armband, three pairs of StayFit silicone tips, two pairs of StayFit 3-flange silicone tips, three pairs of memory foam tips, and a 3.5mm-to-2.5mm adapter. Both the swappable cables are the flat, linguine-style cable that's designed to be tangle resistant (it does help).
