I just purchased the Ultrafocus 8000 yesterday and I already love them. First off, I would like to give kudos to Polk for making the headband out of carbon fiber. In my search for the perfect headphone, I have come to a realization that most headphones that sound good are made of cheap plastic. I hope these 8000?s last a while for the amount of money I just paid for them. Polk, you had better not let me down. I spent my hard earned money on your product, so I would expect to get many years of use from these cans. OK? I also want to give kudos to Polk for having a nice display setup in the store where I purchased them from. Not many companies? setup displays so people can touch, feel, and listen to headphones. In my search for the perfect headphone, I have been disappointed by many of the selections of headphones on the market. You either have....well....Beats....Bose.....and the rest of the market. I am talking about having a display setup for us consumers to actually listen and feel the product. I wish more headphone makers would have some sort of display setup for consumers and really show off the capability of their headphones. It does not take that much money compared to the price they charge. Polk, your display is the reason why I spent my hard earned money on your product. Really!
This morning, I exercised the noise cancellation while I boarded my bus. The bus just disappeared after I put these cans on my head. I actually could listen to my music on my way into Portland. I heard the words Paula Abdul was singing and the bass the song was producing. I was in heaven. I have only listened to these for a total of 1 hour, but this hour has been epic. Good job Polk, you have won my heart and wallet for future headphone purchases.
