Polk Audio has added complete control of portable iOS devices such as iPhone, iPad and iPod on their new UltraFocus 6000i Active Noise Cancelling In-Ear Headphones. As with Polk’s previous (and still available) UltraFocus 6000 headphone, the new UltraFit 6000i is equipped with ultra-flexible planar audio cables to reduce tangling, plus computer-designed, Kevlar-core Strainguard transitional connections to protect the cable at its most vulnerable points. And, its protective carrying case is roomy enough to fit the included bonuses, like a 2.5mm-to-3.5mm headset adapter for Nokia phones, an airline audio adapter, and an impressive assortment of memory foam, flanged, and flangeless silicone ear tips.
The UltraFocus 6000i in-ear canal headphone provides both active noise cancelation and passive noise isolation. Polk’s proprietary Ultra Fidelity Dynamic Balance transducers ensure full frequency response and minimize distortion, even with the headphones’ active noise cancellation engaged.
Volume and Track Skip are included on the miniature control module that also features the headphone’s Push-to-Hear Ambient Control that not only mutes the audio signal, but also amplifies outside sounds, giving instantaneous, unfettered access to the aural world around the listener without necessitating the removal of the headphones themselves.
