The engineers at Polk Audio know great sound. They should, they've been building high-performance home and car speakers for demanding listeners for decades. Now they've taken that experience and expertise and created a headphone designed from the ground up to match the clarity and detail of their famous speakers. The Polk UltraFocus 8000 with active noise-canceling technology reproduces your music with audiophile-grade sound quality, while isolating you from the noisy environment around you. Enjoy a private concert in peace, without distractions from the outside world.
Switch between your calls and music with ease
The UltraFocus 8000's three-button remote and in-line microphone make it easy to answer and end calls, control the volume of your calls or music, and pause, play, or skip through your songs on your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod®. The controls are even built right into the earcup for convenient operation. For travel, the supplied airline adapter lets you easily plug in to in-flight entertainment. And a handy push-to-hear control lets you mute the audio and amplify outside sounds to carry on a conversation with those around you without removing your headphones.
Engineered for durability and comfort
Along with fantastic sound, a truly great headphone also must provide a comfortable and secure fit. The 8000's soft, generously padded earcups ensure hours of luxurious listening comfort. A lightweight carbon fiber headband insert provides added ruggedness while ensuring a snug-yet-gentle over-ear fit. And the ultra-flexible, ribbon-style cable helps avoid tangles.
