Twenty-Six Polk Audio Facebook Fans Win Free UltraFit? Headphones

26-Day Giveaway Celebrated Launch of New UltraFit? Headphones

BALTIMORE, MD, October 10, 2011 – Polk Audio®, the award-winning designer and manufacturer of high performance audio products, wrapped up its UltraFit™ headphone drawing on October, 9, with 26 Polk Audio Facebook fans each receiving a pair of either the UltraFit 2000 or UltraFit 3000 headphones.

More than 10,000 entries were received since September 14, the day following the formal roll-out of the line. In order to win, entrants were required to visit Polk Audio’s Facebook fan page, “like” the page, and click on a link to enter their name and email address. Consumers were allowed to enter once per day, every day, for the duration of the program.

“We are knocked out by the response to the Polk Audio UltraFit headphone drawing, though with all the attention we’re getting from athletes and fitness fans – as well as our own tried and true Polk Audio fan base – it shouldn’t have been all that surprising,” says Al Ballard, Polk Audio’s VP of Marketing. “The combined appeal of the UltraFit line’s comfortable fit, aggressive styling and striking sonic performance is making it a barn burner right out of the gate. We couldn’t be happier with all the attention this line so rightly deserves.”

Polk Audio’s performance line-up of UltraFit headphones are perfect for individuals looking for superior audio quality, comfort, durability and style in the headphones they use while training, practicing or generally engaged in an active lifestyle.

The Polk Audio performance line-up features four UltraFit sports headphones in a variety of colors that include in-ear, on-ear and in-ear canal models. The headphones stand apart from other brands with Polk Audio’s acclaimed audio quality and unique attention to detail, including: water resistant designs, tangle-free contrast-colored cables for instant left/right recognition, Kevlar-reinforced hinge points to eliminate the number one product failure in many headphones, comfortable, non-slip materials where the headphone engages the ear and the only headphones that include multiple cable lengths to accommodate collar, arm or waist placement of mp3 players. 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.
