Superb sound quality and active features
May not fit all people properly.
These headphones require some fitting to get the best sound out of them. They also need a burn-in time to get the best sound. If you have enough patience to do all this you will be rewarded with great sound and deep bass. Definitely great for dance music and techno (music with intensity). Have used it many times at the gym and for many runs and mine are still going strong. Use them with a Bluetooth adapter that gives me wireless and control abilities forgoing the included remote. Use them with my HTC One X phone and I am really happy. Really sweat proof and robust for runs. Would love for Polk to make non-isolating supra-aural headphones to use around the house (aka more economical).

Great fit does not work loose. Can hear the environment. No thumping when running.
Poor sonically. Even cheap/freebie earphones will beat these.
Really good fit they secure and don't fall out whilst running compared. For outdoor runners you get to hear what is going on around you so much safer when running in traffic (conversely this mean if you are in a gym you hear the music there too) No thumping noise as your foot hits the ground for runners. Sonically really poor, if these are your only headphones you will be disappointed - they sound muffled despite spending a bit of time with the fit. However I use other earphones (Shure, eytomic, urban ears) for my regular music listening so these are fine for the job. Rating 5 for Purpose(running). Rating 2 for sound. Average to 3.5 overall Overall would recommend them for joggers/runners with the sound caveat.

Sound Quality, IPhone controls, good cable
Earbud/speaker design (2 blown headphones)
The fit and sound quality are very nice and the flay cable was resistant to getting twisted. I have had 2 pairs and both of them have blown one speaker. I think the damage happens when I insert them into my ear, I can hear a popping sound coming from the speaker when I try to get them snug.

Great sound, great fit, very stylish
The remote is on the LONG cord, it should be on the short one. I use these when I run and like to have the remote but there so much extra cord it gets in the way, plus the remote ends up being at my chest level. I run the cord through my shirt so operating the remote is very difficult. the remote itself also feels flimsy and likely to break.
Good sound/fit, bad remote.

good sound, stay put , durable. flexibility of cords for mixed usage. a set of all 3 sized tips to customise the fit , anti tangle sliders on cord(near buds), to keep the knots away...
getting the fit correct does take trial and error. Remote needs better protection from elements.
I use the UF1000's while mountain biking , to date I have over a thousand miles of trouble free listening. I have tried several types of "buds" , and these are the best "all rounders". Yes, you do "give up" some bass responce , but i dont have to keep fiddling with the fit to re-seal the bud in my ear like others. The remote works well, but will act up if drenched, or submerged(creek crash :). just let it dry out ,or rinse with clean water. I also discovered I use a medium tip in the left ear , large in the right, so dont be afraid to "mix " to get the best fit. If your a minimialist , the modular cord is nice, I've run the cord directly to a shuffle mounted to the back of my helmet , and have no cords to snag braches/limbs(common way to kill headphones) while riding trails.
