Even the most active listener needs some downtime. And there’s no better way to enjoy it than to block out the whole rest of the noisy, active world. Close your eyes, and ignore the passenger in the seat next you, the baby crying in the next compartment, the chatty friends across the aisle, the blaring TVs that interfere with your personal space. The sophisticated Active Noise Canceling technology in the new UltraFocus Series gives you the power to silence the distractions and concentrate on the thing that’s most important to you: you.

Tune Out the World. Tune in Your Music.

Active Noise Canceling technology uses sophisticated audio algorithms to silence distracting outside noise. Polk goes one step further with UltraFocus headphones. They use Optimized Active Tuning to work in tandem with the ANC technology, enhancing audio performance beyond that of ordinary headphones. Whether you’re in a crowded train car or a claustrophobic airplane, on a bustling city street or in a cavernous gym, Polk’s new UltraFocus Active Noise Canceling Headphones give you a refuge from all the noise. They deliver the kind of audio performance you expect from a home audio system: expansive, detailed, engrossing, with deep bass response. Most of all, UltraFocus gives you the freedom to focus on your music and the motivation it gives you to achieve, to win, or just to relax and dream.

Choose the compact in-ear-canal design of the UltraFocus 6000, or the over-ear UltraFocus 8000. Comfortable ear cushions and custom silicone buds feel light as air, so you can forget you even have headphones on. And Polk technology delivers the classic, dynamic Polk sound. Combined with Active Noise Canceling technology, you’ll be amazed at what you do hear, and thankful for what you don’t!

Technology & Features

Active Noise Canceling Technology with Optimized Active Tuning

Battery-assisted Active Noise Canceling technology eliminates the distractions of the outside world, and Polk's exclusive Optimized Active Tuning takes advantage of ANC technology to improve the overall performance dynamics of UltraFocus headphones. (Batteries included.)

Passive Isolation Technology

Comfortable, in-ear-canal design seals the ear (UltraFocus 6000), or the padded on-ear design (UltraFocus 8000) surrounds each ear; both designs naturally minimize outside distractions.

Push-To-Hear Ambient Control

Instantly mutes audio and amplifies outside sounds so you can experience the outside world without removing your headphones.

Dynamic Balance® Design Technology

Dynamic Balance is our patented advanced analysis of a speaker’s entire electro-acoustic and mechanical system. It helps us select better materials and more efficient geometry. With deep analysis, we can pinpoint and eliminate things that reduce performance before they become a part of the finished product. The miniature polymer drivers in UltraFocus Series headphones are specially tuned to produce a flat, uncolored frequency response. This true transparency reveals a wide dynamic range, with sharp details, and no hint of strain.

Active Dynamic Balance Polymer Drivers

Drivers just like those used in full-sized loudspeaker, only a lot smaller. Designed with the same care, and the same adherence to superior performance parameters, Active Dynamic Balance technology is an exclusive combination of active noise cancelling and our patented Dynamic Balance material tuning process. Discrete crossover filters added to each UltraFocus driver system naturalize high frequencies for more lifelike sound.

Ultra-Flexible Tangle-free Planar Audio Cable

Round cables, always coiling up and twisting, are a constant source of annoyance. Repetitive twisting can result in broken cables that flop out of their connection. The UltraFocus Series uses a flat planar cable design that completely eliminates coiling, so your headphone cables won’t tangle up. Oxygen-free cable technology enhances audio conductivity for stellar sound quality. 


StrainGuard design protects the places where headphones take the most abuse. It includes a Kevlar core that provides extra tensile strength to the cables, preventing pull-aparts at common failure points, like transitions and connection points. In the UltraFocus Series, all transitional connections are computer designed for perfect fit, to strengthen the points where they fail most.

Gold-plated 3.5 mm Connector

Designed to fit through the opening on all i-gadget cases.

Extra-long battery life (UltraFocus 8000)

40 to 60 hours with normal ANC usage. Easy to see blinking low battery indicator. (Two AAA batteries included.)  

Convenient 3-Button On-Ear Controller (UltraFocus 8000)

3-button on-ear control & microphone lets you use your iPhone, iPod (and iPad) on the fly. Change tracks, volume, initiate play/pause or take a call (iPhone) without touching your player.
