The UltraFit 2000's on-ear, neckband design stays securely in place when you're on the go, and provides excellent long-term wearing comfort.

Rock your tunes and your workout with the sound of Polk Audio headphones. The UltraFit 2000's on-ear, neckband design stays securely in place when you're on the go, and provides excellent long-term wearing comfort. These headphones make a great choice for listeners who don't care for the feel of earbud or in-ear style 'phones.

Control your iPhone® or iPod® with ease
Convenient controls on the earcup and an in-line microphone let you adjust the volume, skip tracks forward or back, and answer or end calls on your iPhone®, all without ever having to take your phone or music player out of your pocket. The '2000's moisture-resistant design stands up to your active lifestyle, and includes a variety of different earpads to ensure you'll always enjoy a snug, yet comfortable fit. A reflective strip on the neckband provides added nighttime visibility for safety. And the supplied clothing clip helps keep the cord out of the way while you're working out.

From the review Polk Audio Ultrafit 2000 Sports Headphones: When you find something good, run with it.

"Polk claims that the headphone cord is tangle-free. I didn't mean to test that assertion, but over a two-week period of jamming the 'phones into gym bags, backpacks, coat pockets and even the provided travel pouch I found it to be true. I never had to unsnarl the cable... From a practical level, the Polk Ultrafit headphones were a joy to use. And they sounded good, too."


— Ralph, Crutchfield Blog and Product Review Editor

Used it today for the first time. Very happy with it. Fits well with glasses, stays in place during exercise, good quality sound for the price, did not have problem changing ear covers, a big improvement over the earbuds I had been using. I recommend it.

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. 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 visibility.

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).
