Lacrosse Superstar Paul Rabil Adds Polk Audio to His Roster of Award-Winning Teams

Rabil to Support Polk's Headphones in a Variety of Venues

BALTIMORE, MD, November 21, 2011 – Polk Audio, the award-winning designer and manufacturer of high performance audio products, today announced that following his participation in the launch of the company’s performance line-up of UltraFit™ headphones, superstar lacrosse player Paul Rabil has signed on to support the line through a variety of promotional programs.

Under the terms of the agreement, Rabil will be a spokesperson for the headphone line through 2013, in addition to lending his name to a variety of as-yet unspecified related efforts.

“Not only is Paul [Rabil] the epitome of a world-class athlete,” comments Al Ballard, VP of Marketing for Polk Audio. “He’s100% focused on supporting and leading his teams to victory, and that is exactly the type of commitment we look forward to now that he’s part of our team as well.”

“I’m obsessed with being the best at everything I do,” says Rabil. “That includes my workouts and pre-game prep. Polk’s UltraFit headphones are part of my daily routine because the sound is so pure and realistic that I forget I’m listening to music over headphones, and they stay secure and comfortable no matter how hard I train. I am excited to be part of the Polk UltraFit marketing effort.”

This year alone, and for the second time in his four seasons as a professional lacrosse player, Rabil was named the Major League Lacrosse (MLL) Offensive Player of the Year and the league’s Most Valuable Player. With Rabil on board, the Boston Cannons took home their first franchise MLL Championship. Adding to his legacy is the fact that Rabil is one of only three players in Lacrosse to have won MLL, NLL (National Lacrosse League), World Championship, and Division 1 Championships. He currently plays for both the Boston Cannons (MLL) and Washington Stealth (NLL), and was a star player in the All-Star game, where he played one session each for both leagues.

Now shipping to major e-retailers and retailers nationwide, Polk Audio’s Performance Line-Up of UltraFit headphones are perfect for individuals looking for superior audio quality, durability and style in the headphones they use while training, practicing or generally engaged in an active lifestyle. Included are four models in a variety of colors and styles – in-ear, on-ear and in-ear canal models. Three models include in-line or on-ear 3-button remote control and microphone for use with iPhone®, iPod® and iPad®. The UltraFit headphones range from $49.95 to $99.95.
