PROS

  • Given their overall quality, these sports and fitness Bluetooth headphones are a real bargain.
  • This in-ear canal model comes with two cables: a 41-incher with iOS-friendly inline controls and a 14-incher for use by runners.
  • Also included are three sets of silicone single-flange ear tips, two sets of silicone triple-flange ear tips, and two sets of memory-foam ear tips. You also get a shirt clip, soft carrying case, and Nokia adapter.

CONS

  • You might need to do some fiddling with these headphones to achieve consistent volume between the left and right ears.
  • You might hear some distortion at maximum volumes in the deep bass range.
  • These are noise isolating--rather than noise canceling--headphones, so they let in some surrounding sound.
UltraFit 3000 is the top-of-the-line model in Polk's product family in the Bluetooth fitness and sports space. These highly customizable in-ear headphones feature an integrated, bendable hook that wraps around the ear, helping you achieve a secure fit. They come with several ear tips to further raise your chances for a good fit. Polk claims that these headphones won't fall off even if you're flying through the air during a gymnastic routine. Sound quality is generally quite high, although some folks experience minor issues. The fitness headphones work without a battery.

Polk Audio has introduced an entire family of earphones for athletes. Polk’s new UltraFit line is led by the $100 UltraFit 3000 in-ear-canal model I tried. Sonically, they’re a huge step up from the $10 buds you get at your local electronics superstore, but they’re also engineered to stay wrapped around your ears no matter how many ounces of sweat you work up.

The sound is excellent and with all the different ear plugs that come with it you'll def find a perfect match. Two cables, perfect fit, noise reduction; I'm very happy with these!

A pair of exercise earbuds has to do more than just muffle the sound of your labored breathing. They need to be durable and sweat-proof, they need to stay in place when jostled, and they need to sound great. Of all the pairs we've taken out running, the Polk Audio Ultrafit 3000 might be the best buds yet.

I opted for the smallest circular nubs. (The flanges, Jim Marshall’s favorite, tended to hang uncomfortably out of my ears.) I highly recommend trying all the various tips: It’s fun, and comparing the tips gives you a good idea of the actual sizes of your ear canals.
