Polk Audio introduces trio of headphones targeted at Android users

Polk Audio is now making available a trio of headphones they are marketing specifically for Android users. The headphones are part of their UltraFit series and can be distinguished from the other sets in the series by the lower case “a” in their model number.

The top of the line model is the UltraFit 3000a. This set is a deep ear-canal model that Polk describes as an “extreme high performance sports headphone system.” Like the other models, the 3000a features Polk’s SecureFit system that hooks over the ear to help hold the headphones in place. Polk also provides controls and a microphone inline that can be used to control music or switch to phone functions. Retail pricing has been set at $99.95.

At the other end of the spectrum is the UltraFit 1000a model. These are in-ear headphones as well, but not as deep as the 3000a. Even though they are on the lower end of the UltraFit series, the 1000a also features the SecureFit system and includes some noise reduction technology. The listed retail price for the 1000a is $69.95.

In the middle, and different from the models to each side, is the Polk UltraFit 2000a model. Unlike the 1000a and 3000a, the 2000a is an on-ear model. Featuring the SecureFit system and some noise reduction capability, the 2000a has controls built into the surface of the earphones. The 2000a is priced at $69.95.
