Good looks run in the family
Why do our customers love Polk Audio as much as we do? Probably because they know the importance of making audio gear that's gorgeous to look at and listen to. Continuing with that tradition, Polk has designed the beautiful Hinge headphones. With a smooth protein leather covering over the length of the aluminum headband, these headphones practically demand to be worn. Their cool factor is sure to catch discerning eyes with its old-school looks that are anything but garish.
Beauty is not skin deep
Polk has never let fashion trump their guiding mission of giving music lovers entry to the world of high-quality sound for an affordable admission. The Hinge is no exception. Polk's proprietary Dynamic Balance tuning regulates the internal resonances of the drivers and housing to keep distortion from mucking up your music. Each of the 40mm drivers has been tuned to produce accurate, immersive sound so you can experience your music as it was intended by the artist.
But are they comfy?
Even the best-looking, best-sounding headphones only get used if they fit comfortably on your head. The Hinge's plush padding on the headband and earcups ensure you won't hesitate to put these on your ears and keep them there for a while. When you're done listening, fold them up for easy storage. After all, you didn't think a headphone named “Hinge” wouldn't fold up, did you?
