Karma - Polk Nue Voe

edited March 2017 in The Clubhouse
Its been a while since I've done a Karma, or even been so regular on here since living on two coasts, but I still lurk often, and comment occasionally. I still believe this is the best audio site going, and virtually count members here I've interacted with as friends.

With that in mind, I give you a set of Polk Nue Voe ear buds, I won these from our good friends at Polk themselves for showing my somewhat insane "bring along" system for my hotel room, so they really aren't much of a karma considering they cost me nothing, OTOH they're very nice, basically brand new, and just don't agree with my ear canal (fit only, they sound great). It's that simple.

Let's say, pick a number 1-100 for Polkies above 100 posts, and name your favorite headphone track - I'll draw a winner at random next Saturday. Good Luck!

PS. These are the tortoise shell version. Very nice.

    Vmaxer, was going to say I need a number but LOL I realized I don't really... it was late last night what can I say. I guess going forward I just need an "IN" and your headphone track and that's it! Don't know what I was thinking!
