Secure fit. Multiple cable length options.
Love my new UltraFit 500's ! Sound quality is a huge improvement over the headphones that came with my iPod! The fit of these is much better as well! Great product!

They look good. They have a known name on them so you feel cool. I expected more out of them with that 118db sensitivity rating compared to many others 100db ratings.
Bass performance if not manually holding in your ears. May clip and cutout on some mp3 players as it did on my Sony.
These headphones sound good....if you constantly press them into your ears with your hands while you listen. None of the supplied ear cushions allow the bud to stay inside your ear close enough to keep it clear and the bass loud. If left alone they distort a little bit at full volume. Sounds like a flutter. They caused my Sony mp3 player to clip with the bass boost on. They work with an iPhone 3g, but again only with the flutter at full volume. If you press into your ears, they sound good.

Good sound, great fit, stay on well. Great value for the money.
Have not found any.
I ice skate, and often train with music. So far these are the only headphones that deliver good sound and actually stay in/on my ears during skating. I also like the fact that the cord can be kept longer or be shortened, and love the clip on the cord which helps prevent the headphones from being pulled off my ears when I occasionally catch the cord with my arm.

Sound Quality, Ease of Use
The Polk UltraFit 500 Headphones are by far the best headphones that I have ever used. The quality of the sound is unmatched. I bought them to replace some other headphones for use while working out. The flexibility of the connection cords and the ease with which you can slip them on your ears makes them easy to use and perfect for any situation. I only wish I found out about them sooner.
