    Default UltraFocus 8000 in Men's Health

    Nothing groundbreaking, but I got my Men's Health magazine today. They had a short snipet on six headphones. Didn't rank them, but just a few sentences about each.

    The phones were:
    Sennheiser HD 598
    Denon Urban Raver AH-D400
    Audio-Technica Solid Bass ATH-WS55
    Polk Audio UltraFocus 8000
    Bowers & Wilkins P3
    Monster Inspiration

    The polk write-up reads as follows...
    "These noise-canceling headphones are well built, with a cool carbon-fiber band. They're smart, too, with a push-to-hear control that amplifies external voices. Listeners across the board raved about their clear highs, deep low end, and wide soundstage. 'They gave De La Soul punishing bass and fluttering highs,' said one.
