    Frequency Response of 3000 is 8Hz-24Khz while 500 is 18Hz-23Khz
    Which makes me raise my eyebrows lol. Really??? 3000s will go down to as low as 8Hz? WTF?

    If there placed in your ears properly I'm sure. Some models of in-ear ear buds sound like crap when not placed in your ear properly but when a proper seal is made... WOW the bass is awesome.

    I care.

    That was meant generically speaking MON40 as again, the spec's are not that radical between any pair of headphones. Excellent reply however and totally understand what you'e saying.

    I've had the 500s for a week now and really like them. They sound way better than what I used to use.


    I have weird shaped ear canals from having tubes in them as a kid and have never been able to get a pair of ear buds to fit right so they sounded decent.

    They don't seem to be near as loud as my old sony's but they don't need to has they block out the outside noise much better. I went cycling for a few hours and very much enjoyed these new Polk headphones.

    i won a pair of the 3000's at PolkFest 2011. I never knew headphones could sound so goood. Sal is right you have to find the correct ear bud to fit your ear if not they wont sound nearly as good.

    If they were not sport headphones I would snag a pair. But that will probably be down the road.

    I asked my son if I could get back the 3000's we won at PolkFest 2011. He politely said no and it was because these were the best he has heard. He has been through a bunch of different earphones. Love the bass form them.

    I love how music can brighten up a bad day.
