Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000


The Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 earphone pair delivers excellent noise cancellation, but its bulky battery compartment and audio performance quirks are drawbacks.

Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 review: Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000


Polk Audio may be best known for its speakers, but its new UltraFocus Series of headphones include active (battery-powered) and passive noise-canceling features.

The Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 active noise-canceling in-ear headphones feature a big, powerful sound while maintaining a comfortable fit.

The cable lacks a microphone and smartphone controls, and playback requires power, so the music dies along with your battery.

The Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000's noise-canceling powers are just average for an in-ear NC design, but anyone looking for midprice headphones with lots of bass and detail will love this set.

Polk Audio UltraFocus 6000 in-ear headphones


These in-ear headphones have active noise cancelling to cut out ambient chatter

Excellent passive and active noise cancelling ; Good sound, pleasant bass and treble response
