Finally, excellent headphone design!

 

I'm glad to have bought these headphones. Finally, someone understands the importance of design in making a high-quality, durable product. I read the reviews, but when they arrived today and I saw that the box came with a preview flap that held...

Well, I've had them for less than an hour, so I can't comment on durability from experience. But even so, headphones usually die a death from fraying where the wire meets the stiff sheath of the plug. Given the design I've seen so far, I'm expecting it...

Broken after only 6 months

 

These were a comfortable experience but not durable. I'm not likely to buy another pair again.

Very comfortable in ear design. Nice long cord and secure fit with great sound, and as a nice side bonus they never seem to tangle. You pay a premium for these headphones and if you don't put them through their paces they're likely going to make you...

After using these for six months the long cord has a break that causes the sound to cut in and out. I went searching for replacement cords but it looks like if i want to get them functioning again I'm going to have to pay for a whole new pair

Works for me!

 

I've found my new workout headphones!

Never falls out of ears (once properly fitted) ; Sound quality is acceptable ; Cable length is variable (thanks to handy included 5mm audio extensions) ; Look cool ; Can hear stuff around me ; Not dead on arrival (good QA)

Pricey

Worth Every Penny!

 

I am not an audiophile but someone who like their music to sound good. This set of earphones really impress me and I am 100% satisfied with my purchase!

The ear pieces are very comfortable soft rubber. It seemed to direct the audio into my ear canal like no other earphones I have ever used. The bass is magnificent and loud! The audio quality was second to none

The ribbon cable is not the easiest to manage but it seems durable though. The short cable was too short and long cable too long for my use. I like to clip my cell phone to my waist band and listen to Pandora when I exercise. I was able to find a way...

These sound great but don't stay in well.

 

These sound great but do not stay in if you perspire much. The various ear pieces do not really work as advertised.This product has... Fall out of ears easily, Poor fit

Sound quality

They don't stay in if you perspire

Stick to speakers, Polk....

 

Polk should really stick to just making speakers, and stay away from headphones. I bought these to work out with, and I was extremely disappointed. First off - they were INCREDIBLY uncomfortable. Now, I will say that I constantly have fit issues with...

They look pretty cool

Just about everything else

Awesome Earbuds

 

These ear buds are so comfortable. I like to run and ride my bike and these ear buds were a great gift from my husband. They are wonderful. The sound quality is great. I don't have to blast the music to block out the wind and other noises. I can listen...

comes with a great soft carring case, enough room to put my ipod in as well
