We all love to listen to music while we work out. It helps motivate us and pump us up, and it’s also a great way to pass the time while walking/running on the treadmill. Unfortunately due to the amount of sweat we produce during our workouts, going to the gym with a pair of regular, but expensive headphones is just asking for your headphones to see a shorter (and smellier) life as the sweat could get into the circuitry and damage it. Polk Audio announced back in June their UltraFit series of headphones, designed for those leading sporty and active lifestyles.
The good news for those who were on the lookout for a pair of sporty headphones is that they are now available in four different models. Starting with the UltraFit 500, these are a pair of in-ear headphones and will retail for $49.95. It comes with SecureFit, tangle free cables, Strainguard and a moisture shield. It will also come with three pairs of silicone tips.
The UltraFit 1000 in-ear headphones will retail for $69.95 and will feature a three button remote control and microphone. It too will come with a Strainguard and moisture shield and tangle free cables.
The UltraFit 2000 is a pair of on-ear headphones and will set you back $69.95. Essentially it is more or less similar to the UltraFit 1000, with the difference being that it is a pair of on-ear headphones and will come with a reflective wraparound headband which is great for those who run at night and need the reflective band so that cars will be able to spot you.
Last but not least is the UltraFit 3000 which retails for $99.95. These are the most expensive of the lot and supposedly will provide ultra-high performance digital sound. Instead of just one set of tangle free cables, the UltraFit 3000 will come with two tangle free cables.
They aren’t priced too expensive, and while we can’t speak for the quality of audio, they seem to be affordable enough for those who just need a pair of headphones for their workout. For more information head on down to Polk Audio’s website.
