Our take on the Polk Audio UltraFit 500

by Dave Bar
Polk Audio

No matter what kind of sports or exercise you're into, Polk's UltraFit 500 headphones will be right there with you. Their silicone ear tips rest gently in the outer part of your ear canals while soft, bendable ear clips keep them firmly in place, even during the most challenging maneuvers. The built-in moisture shield helps ensure they'll keep going at least as long as you do. And a high-performance driver design allows these little headphones to punch out surprisingly detailed sound, delivering the kind of performance that'll inspire you on your next workout.

Pick the cable length that's right for you
The UltraFit 500s include two tangle-resistant, Kevlar®-reinforced cables to match your listening style. A long 41" cable lets you wear your music player on your waist or in your pants pocket, while the short 14" cable makes a convenient connection to an iPod tucked into an armband holder or shirt pocket. Or, you can unplug the extension cables altogether, and hook the headphones straight into an iPod nano®, iPod shuffle®, or other MP3 player clipped to your shirt collar. The UltraFit 500s come with a soft, zippered case for storage, and a clothing clip to help keep them in place while you're on the move.

Features

UltraFit Series Sports Headphone: Polk Audio designed their new UltraFit Series Sport Headphones to enhance your headphone listening experience while enduring your most demanding workouts, comfortably. The Polk Audio UltraFit Series Sport Headphones are engineered for comfort, performance, and durability. You'll appreciate how they fit and stay put even through the roughest workouts. You'll also be impressed and delighted by the dynamic sound quality of the UltraFit Sport Headphones.

Dynamic Balance: Co-developed with the Johns Hopkins Center for Non-Destructive testing, Dynamic Balance is a design tool that enables Polk Audio engineers to pinpoint the elements that negatively impact driver performance. These same engineers then carefully control materials, interfaces, and geometries; resulting in a headphone with great sound.

Dynamic Balance Polymer Drivers: UltraFit Sport Headphones employ dynamic drivers much like those in a Polk Audio full size speaker; they're just a lot smaller (14.2mm). To meet Polk's predetermined performance parameters, their engineers took the same care designing these drivers as Polk Audio large speaker drivers; even adding a discrete crossover filter to each driver to naturalize the high frequencies.

Ported Enclosures: UltraFit Sports Headphones are ported, since there is the port (ear piece) you put in your ear. There are also very small channels in the back of the driver enclosure, beneath the Polk logo. These are crucial to tuning the driver's frequency response peaks. And that means a better sounding pair of headphones.

Moisture Shield: The UltraFit 500 headphones employ Moisture Shield to protect the headphones during your workout. Moisture Shield consists of a thin scrim on UltraFit 500 driver screen. This filter material resists moisture that could get to the driver; so the headphones can keep performing through strenuous activity. Moisture Shield also provides an acoustic barrier to help smooth frequency response.

SecureFit Support: SecureFit Support is a flexible ear hook that wraps around your ear, so the earpiece stays in place. With SecureFit Support, you'll experience a snug yet comfortable fit. Now, you can put your headphones on and forget about them during your workout.

3 Pairs of StayFit Eartips: Properly fitted eartips help you to eliminate extraneous noise, experience greater bass response, and enjoy better tonal balance. Eartips that fit correctly also feel more comfortable. No two person's ears are exactly the same, so Polk includes 3 different sizes (S/M/L) of StayFit silicone eartips to ensure a secure and comfortable fit for optimum audio performance.

Ultra Flexible Tangle-Free Planar Audio Cable: Standard round headphone cables always coil up and twist; and are a constant source of annoyance, because they get in the way of your workout. Eventually repetitive twisting means the cable will break or pull out at the end. The UltraFit's planar design (with oxygen-free wire for better conductivity) completely eliminates coiling, so the headphone cables won't tangle up during a workout, or when stored away. The planar design also eliminates micro-phonics, the tendency of an electronic device to turn a mechanical vibration into "noise," which you would hear, in this case, through the headphones.

StrainGuard: Sports headphones get a lot of abuse. UltraFit Sports Headphones have been designed with this in mind. StrainGuard is a protective system that addresses the areas where sports headphones fail most often. A Kevlar core that houses the speaker wire provides extra tensile strength to prevent the wire from being pulled apart at common failure points. The other points of common failure in sports headphones are at transitional points between cable lengths and at connection points. In the UltraFit Series, all transitional connections are computer designed to strengthen the points where they fail most.

3 Cable Lengths: UltraFit Series headphones come with three cable length options, so you can wear your music device the way that works best for you. The attached 14" headphone cable lets you clip your portable music player to your shirt collar (with included shirt-clip), an included 41" headphone extension cable enables you to wear your music player on your waist or pants pocket, while the supplied 14" headphone extension cable lets you wear your iPod nano, iPod shuffle, or other MP3 players on a t-shirt sleeve.

3.5mm Connector: All UltraFit Sports Headphones employ a gold-plated 3.5mm connector that has been designed to fit through the opening on most portable audio player cases.

Moisture Resistant Soft Case: The UltraFit Sports Headphones include a moisture resistant soft case for storage, transport, and protection of the headphones and its included accessories (extension cables, ear-tips, shirt clip).

Comment by Ralph Graves Staff Writer - Creative,

UltraFit fit fine

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 12/15/2011 9:47:00 AM

Don't let the unusual shape throw you. The soft silicone bracing helps keep the earpiece in place just outside your ear canal. If you don't like in-ear headphones, this is a good alternative to bulkier on-ear models. The UltraFits sound pretty good for sport headphones. The bass is nice and punchy, and my rock and hip-hop tracks really hit home (especially at louder volumes). And that tangle-free cord claim isn't just talk. I've fished these out of my jacket pocket and the cord just unfolds -- no knots!

I've always had trouble with earbuds so I tried these. The Polks stay in place and are comfortable even when totally sweating during a workout. I bought a second pair as a present for a friend.
Pros:
Comfort, different sizes so can be customized to fit your ear.
Cons:
Don't have any.

As I hoped

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought these to replace YurBuds. The medium size fit perfect and the ear wraps were flexible enough to improve hold. The cabling is much better built than the YurBuds of similar cost. Sound is a bit more bass-y and better but this could be because they stay in better...all I could hope for...

Not all ears are made the same

Written By Julio P., Danville, Kentucky on Wednesday, May 07, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was looking for some headphones to replace my faulty Panasonic ear buds. The sound coming from the Polk's phenomenal and the noise reduction is above par. The flexible ear hangers are great, able to fit them to match around my ears. My only complaint is that the ear buds were too large to fit inside my ear canal, even with the different size of ear tips. I don't know if Polk did a survey to find the right fit for people's ears, but if they did they failed. But, that's my only complain. I'm a designer, so I listen to music all day long while I work. From fitting the ear buds in place, then after a long day jamming to tunes while designing consumer products, they hurt obviously since the ear buds were too big for my ears. But I've been using them for over a couple of weeks now, and I believe my ears finally gave in and they don't bother me any more. Other than that, it's a great product.
Pros:
Great sound, a cable that won't bind into a knot, soft carrying pouch, flexible ear hangers, and multiple ear tips
Cons:
The ear buds are a bit large for my ears...

These earbuds are a great buy. I bought them for my boyfriend to use at the gym. He is very particular about how his music sounds and loves these earbuds, especially because of the price. He also says that they are very comfortable. They done fall out of your ears, but they are not too tight. An added bonus, they come we a carrying pouch.

Good sound, bad fit

Written By Jim, Charlottesville VA on Thursday, October 10, 2013
 
I bought these for my 14 year old daughter. The sound was very good but the fit was bad. No matter how we adjusted them we could not get them to stay. They come with three different size ear pieces but even the smallest would not stay. She also kept commenting on the "over the ear" holder. She said it was uncomfortable. Perhaps this is just made for adults but it didn't work for our needs.

I just could not get this headphones to fit right...they come with 3 sets of silicone ear tips (small, medium, and large). The small silicone ear tip was way too big to fit me. You need to have a huge head with a giant earhole for them to fit right. Can't really say anything about how they sound, as I couldn't even get the headphnes to stay in my ears.

Ultrafit 500's

Written By CB, Las Vegas, NV on Monday, April 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Okay product, sound is too muddy and lacks highs. They do stay in ears as advertised, they are pretty comfortable. I am returning these as I just got the Ultrafit 3000. The sound from the Ultrafit 3000 is much better, not muddy, highs are high and lows are low, but I don't think they offer as much bass as a comparably priced Sony EX series. Over all the Ultrafit 500 is decent for the price, but I am glad I spent the extra on the Ultrafit 3000
Pros:
Stays in ears during workout - cord does not tangle or kink

This is a great product. They sound pretty good for ear buds and most importantly they stay in. I am a big guy and also wear glasses. When I run I have allot of perspiration, so I must take off my glasses as I wipe off. The ear buds stay in place. The no tangle cord is awesome as well as the storage bag. I am very pleased with this product.

Not good

Written By Anonymous, Fresno, CA on Sunday, February 05, 2012
 
I am so not a fan of these. I asked for, and was given a set as a Christmas Present, and I was so disappointed. They only sound good if you press them deep in your ear, and they won't stay there. So you have to manually hold them in for the duration of your listening. Soon as they slide out the bass all but disappears, and the treble distorts. My $20 se was better previously.
Pros:
They fit nice and look cool
Cons:
The sound aweful.

These earphones are clear, good bass, not tinny or muffled and rival the performance of much more expensive ear buds. They stay in well once inserted but take a few moments to insert. They are also durable and come with a padded case that will fit in a pocket. These are a great buy and what one would expect from Polk Audio.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I use these ear phones with a Sony Walkman CD player when I do cardio at home, and let me tell you...I notice a big difference in the sound quality. These ear phones have a low noise output with accurate bass and crisp highs. The fit is supurb with mininal to no escape of sound. They are a great value for the price.
Pros:
Low noise output. Nice punch to the bass. Contour of the earpiece provides a snug and comfortable fit.
Cons:
None.
