Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Button

Button:
"The electronic controls buttons failed after only a couple of months use and then they just died."
_
"Unfortunately, after about 3 months of use while working out, the buttons mic stopped working."
_
"but then i bought a samsung gs3 smart phone, and discovered that the volume buttons don't do anything on my gs3, i think i was jabbing the buttons too hard because the plastic button thingy fell off, the clips holding it in broke off, but the middle button still works intermittently."
_
"the button cover is flimsy and mine broke after the first month, button still works, the plasticy cover thing is just wonky."
_
"all in all a good buy, just don't be too hard on the volume button, that said i am very hard on all of my products and these have lasted through my overhanded button mashing and dropping my phone with the phone jack still plugged in, and snagging the wires on stuff and all kinds of other abuse."
_
"The fit is great and the pause play buttons work great -- but for $90 the volume buttons need to work for more than a minute."
_
"When I first got them I attached the longer cord so I could take advantage of the play pause and volume buttons on the control pod to use with my Ipod Nano."

Fit

Fit:
"Pretty good fit and good, not great sound."
_
"The sound quality doesn't seem to bad, initially I was really concerned that these had no bass to them, then I realized the earpieces I was using were not a good fit, when I switched them to a different size I could definitely tell a huge difference and the bass was much stronger."
_
"The only downside is, none of the tips fit well enough that, when you grimace or clench your teeth (think weight lifting), they tend to come a little loose in the ear, effectively losing the seal and bass."
_
"Great fit and stay in ears."
_
"Sound great, fit and stay in place even better."
_
"They still sound and fit great but I am sure that any small amount of sweat on that exposed control board will quickly short them."
_
"She played with the cups and found the most comfortable fit with the small grey foam cups."
_
"Some of the reviewers found the sound excellent but the fit poor."

Quality

Quality:
"Very disappointed in the sound quality."
_
"Very disappointing from an otherwise quality company."
_
"Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed with both the quality of the product and Polk's handling of the situation."
_
"Over time they have become uncomfortable and lost sound quality in that ear."
_
"Polk Audio UltraFit 3000 Headphones - White Orange (ULTRAFIT 3000ORG)First let me start saying that I'm a audiophile that works out, so it is not easy to impress me with headphones unless they are Shure quality."
_
"The flat cables are thick and not properly isolated from the internal sound system so when i run with the headphones on and the cables inevitably hit or tap my body i can hear that, especially on the left side, so i have to turn up the volume, .....when i tried to solve this by using the provided clip i found that it is not just small but also lacks teeth so it does not clip on tightly and comes lose pretty often...., sound quality is good but not great, but i'd guess its all abt pricing, as i also have a pair of bang and olufsen (ear buds too big for my ears) and a pair of monster copper (great sound but not suitable for running), and they sound much better but they are also more expensive, so probably not comparable."
_
"These are among the best I've tried although the sound quality is probably a little lower than others."
_
"Great product at a pretty good price for the sound quality."
_
"Digging deeper, I found that the overall majority of the reviews noted great sound quality if you managed to figure out the correct fitting ear cup for your ears."
_
"When it comes to sound quality, these things are really good."
_
"the 3.5 mm phone jack is well reinforced, and has a low profile to it so it won't break in your jeans (the stock headphones for the gs3 lasted a little over two weeks, but in my small pant pockets the wires broke at the phone jack, and they cost 60 bucks to replace)the sound quality is excellent, i work in a large production wood shop, very noisy, and i wear these even when not listening to music, because they block the outside noise better than the earplugs we are provided with."

Sound:
"Very disappointed in the sound quality."
_
"Pretty good fit and good, not great sound."
_
"Instead I get an annoying crackle, or terrible to no sound at all."
_
"I have to return them however because the sound is beyond frustrating."
_
"Over time they have become uncomfortable and lost sound quality in that ear."
_
"It seems that now with little over 10 hours of use, they are broken in it seems and sound even more refined."
_
"Sound great, fit and stay in place even better."
_
"These are among the best I've tried although the sound quality is probably a little lower than others."
_
"They stay in place relatively well, but listening to Pandora thru my phone, the sound quality and fit is not drastically better than my $12 skull candy ear buds that I bought at Ross."
_
"Great product at a pretty good price for the sound quality."
_
