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.
The UltraFit 2000 even offers an integrated remote + mic, so you can control your
iPod or answer your iPhone on the go.
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 (30mm). 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: There are 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.
On-Ear Design with Reflective Wrap-Around Headband: The UltraFit
2000 Sports Headphones feature an on-ear design with a wrap-around headband. The
UltraFit 2000 incorporates a highly reflective insert in the back of the
wrap-around headband offering additional safety through improved low light
SecureFit Support: SecureFit Support is a flexible ear hook that wraps
around your ear, so the ear pad 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.
Interchangeable Ear Pads: The UltraFit 2000 Sports
Headphones include 4 pair of interchangeable on-ear ear pads.
- Foam Ear Pads: The headphones include 2 pair of on-ear foam ear
pads. One set is pre-installed.
- Silicone Ear Pads: The Sports Headphones also include on-ear
silicone ear pads.
- Cold Weather Shearling Ear Pads: In addition, the
UltraFit 2000 Sports Headphones include a pair of on-ear shearling ear pads
to keep your ears warm in cold weather.
Moisture Shield: The UltraFit 2000 headphones employ
Moisture Shield to protect the headphones during your workout. Moisture Shield
consists of a thin scrim on UltraFit 2000 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.
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.
3.5mm 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.
Note: A 2.5mm adapter is also included for select mobile devices,
such as Nokia.
3-Button Remote Control + Mic: The UltraFit 2000 features a 3-button
remote & microphone so you can use your iPod, iPhone, or iPad
on the go with built-in controls. The built-in remote (located on the right
earpiece) lets you initiate play/pause, change tracks, adjust volume, or take a call (iPhone
only) without ever touching your player. The in-line microphone (located on the
attached 46" headphone cord) supports both
voice control (for iPod/iPhone/iPad) and hands-free communication (iPhone only). The UltraFit 2000 is "Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad"
compatible and supports the following models and functions (as of 12/28/2011).

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change
functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may
need to reset your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't
work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until a
newer software update is available.
