Polk Audio, best known for their high quality home and car speakers have entered into uncharted waters: headphones. With their recent introduction of four new headphone models, Polk is attempting to work their high quality, yet affordable magic into an entirely new consumer market. The model we are looking at today are the UltraFit 500, wrap-around sports earbuds. Polk claims these sports buds are two-years in the making (they even brought an audiologist on staff full time) and were designed from the ground up to cater to the active lifestyle. Will they live up to the Polk name or get forgotten in the already crowded headphone market? Read on to find out.

What We Didn't Like:
While some would consider $50 on the higher end of sports earbuds, they do offer a high quality, balanced listening experience usually reserved for the $75+ high-end earbud market. The cord length flexibility and well fitting design shows Polk took their research into the active earbud market seriously. Compared to similar style earbuds from Sony and Philips the UltraFit 500's are a notch above in both fit and function. Polk's foray into the headphone market appears to be off to a good start.
