Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Update: I called Polk to tell them that I liked the headphones, but that the cord failed."
_
"The new pair worked for perhaps two months before developing the exact same failure in the cord."
_
"The problem is that the cord on these became intermitant after a short time so that the left channel would drop out."
_
"They are also not inexpensive so they should have a good cord."
_
").Most of the negative reviews have to deal with cord fatigue causing speaker connection issues."
_
"I was buying new SHS5200's every 3-4 months because of the flimsy cord."
_
"Update: I called Polk to tell them that I liked the headphones, but that the cord failed."
_
"The tangle free cord is a great asset as it truly is tangle free, the accessories are also well designed, has different speaker covers to be used during different seasons."
_
"The Polk headphones looked like they had great sound quality, a cord that was more user-friendly than most, and some handy controls."
_
"They are good quality, but the cord is quite short, and they do not come as advertised."
_
"There is only one cord and the cord is thick and well insulated meaning it will probably never short out."

Control

Control:
"While the sound quality is decent, the construction feels flimsy and the headset controls for volume and pause failed after one month."
_
"In using all three for about a week of joggin, each starts off working fine and then the remote control functionality starts to fail."
_
"My only complaint is that I'd prefer if the audio playback controls were inline with the mic, similar to the iPhone headphones, as I don't find the on-the-ear controls to be as easy to use."
_
"While the sound quality is decent, the construction feels flimsy and the headset controls for volume and pause failed after one month."
_
"Lastly, I love the controls directly on the earpiece which means I don't have to go into my pocket to pause, or control volume when talking with someone."
_
"The sound quality was indeed pretty good, however the volume track controls began crapping out after ~three months, as did the stereo sound."
_
"The cord is long without being too long and the on-ear controls are a nice touch."
_
"They were great while they lasted... fit well, quality sound and the volume playback controls on the headset were a nice touch."

Fit

Fit:
"The sound quality is reasonably good but the fit is quite uncomfortable."
_
"(My fault) I love these because they fit behind the head which enables me to wear them riding a bike with my helmet on."
_
"But they're not adjustable, so they'll either fit or they won't - I think that shows in some of the other reviews that complain about the fit."
_
"It has a very uncomfortable fit."
_
"the only problem with the fit is that in windy conditions I have experienced a little noise."
_
"I have a larger head, and they fit me well."
_
"Comfortable and stable fit even when sprinting."
_
"The sound quality is reasonably good but the fit is quite uncomfortable."
_
"So, it's nice to have this fit into whatever running pouch you are using."
_
"(My fault) I love these because they fit behind the head which enables me to wear them riding a bike with my helmet on."

Price

Price:
"They are also not inexpensive so they should have a good cord."
_
"I called 1-800-377-POLK (7655) to see if they would replace, but declined because I did not purchase from an authorize dealer (Amazon is listed as an authorized dealer, but you need to pay attention to the sub-dealers, most of whom are not authorized).Hope Polk finds the problem and updates these headphones, but until then, do not wait your money."
_
"Terrible waste of money"
_
"I have owned a lot of mid-range and cheapie headphones that are comparable in price and design to these and I am thoroughly blown away by how good the sound is."
_
"The 4 stars is because they could be a bit more rugged, but for the price I am quite happy."
_
"Some of the best headphones for running, maybe THE best, certainly in this price range."
_
"I never had trouble with the sound (good for price) or fit (i have a skinny head - so everything fits), but after 3 weeks and 5 uses, the right earphone cuts out when i'm running."
_
"While these are not cheap, they work very well with my iPhone 4s."

Sound

Sound:
"While the sound quality is decent, the construction feels flimsy and the headset controls for volume and pause failed after one month."
_
"For that, I have a pair of Moto s305s (they don't sound as good, but I don't like dealing with wires while running, lifting, etc."
_
"These don't sound as good as $1,000+ studio headphones, but I'd put them up against Beats, Bose, and some of the higher end Sony stuff any day."
_
"Do not buy these expecting them to be wonderful because the seals on these are just not good enough but expect them to sound better than most."
_
"The sound from my iphone now cracks and pops while I run which is annoying."
_
"I use them for music as well, and while the sound quality is not the absolute best, it is quite good enough for listening while working, etc."

_
"I have worn these for several months now and find the sound and comfort to be undiminished."
