Polk Audio's new UltraFit Sports Headphone Series is the rethinking from the ground up of performance, comfort and durability-the three characteristics serious athletes (and active individuals) need most in a pair of headphones. Serious music lovers too will value the UltraFit Series because of its undeniably impressive sonic performance.
The UltraFit 3000 is an in-ear canal design that offers the highest sonic performance and the highest level of noise suppression. SecureFit support and a generous assortment of ear tip materials and sizes means you'll enjoy a snug yet comfortable in-ear canal fit. A 3 button remote control and in-line microphone enable you to use your iPod or iPhone anytime, anywhere. While an included short (14") cable means hassle-free and tangle-free MP3 sleeve and collar connections.
Pros: lots of choices for eurbud size, cord length.
Cons: still haven't found an earbud choice among those provided in the package that stays secure and oriented properly in my ear during workouts.
Other Thoughts: super fast newegg shipping.

Sound = Decent - Usability = A+
Pros: With the extra length cords (one with built in controls) and multiple sized/styled ear pieces, there shouldn't be anyone that can't get these to fit properly. The piece that goes over the ear is adjustable and molds to the shape you need. The cord is of the flat variety and does not transmit noise to the ears which is a plus for fitness applications. Overall, they are very user friendly and adaptable to multiple needs. I love the orange/white color scheme too.
Cons: The sounds is decent but not great. To me (not an audiophile), the sound is a little muddy and on an iPod there's a limited set of EQ presets that don't do a lot to clean this up. Maybe other devices are more robust to dial in the sound better. For use during exercise though, there's no need to be overly picky about the sound quality though so this may only bother the an*l retentive crowd. For comparison, I owned (one ear stopped working and are no longer on the market) a pair of Etymotic ER6i's which definitely have a better range and clarity of sound but they aren't nearly good for fitness/active environments and so belong in a different audio headphone category. The UltraFit 3000's would not be my first choice for audio at home/office/commuting because there are other cheaper and better sounding alternatives. For fitness/active use, I have not seen a better alternative.
Other Thoughts: I've owned Polk speakers for autos and home audio and have never been disappointed. They seem to make good quality products as a rule. The variable cable lengths and variety of ear pieces are really the strong point of this product.
