Polk Audio Buckle and Hinge Headphones

Polk Audio Buckle and Hinge Headphones

Polk just released the Buckle over-ear and Hinge on-ear headphones for fashion lovers looking for a rich and detailed listening experience, crafted comfort and on-point design detailing. Dressed in cool, chestnut or black with contrasting stitching and metal detailing, Buckle and Hinge reflect Polk’s classic retro design. The headphones also uphold the brand’s reputation for delivering legendary sound and unmatched acoustics. Each features Polk Optimized Electro-acoustic Tuning (POET) technology and is engineered with 40 mm drivers developed with Polk’s Dynamic Balance design process, which produces immersive audio performance and an improved listening experience.

Buckle and Hinge offer unique detailing that speaks to modern and vintage influences. Buckle offers wearers a low-key vibe that’s cool and subtle, matching understated textures with contrasting stitching and brushed metal hardware. The Hinge provides users with a more compact option, featuring minimalized hardware which folds into an easy-travel size accessory. Both headphones were designed comfort and a secure fit in mind, featuring pivoting, plush-padded ear cups and ergonomic headband. An Apple 3-button volume control switch and microphone allows for easy toggling.

Price and Availability
The Polk Audio Buckle ($249) and Hinge ($179) headphones are available now in Black and Silver or Brown and Gold.
