The Gift: Polk Audio UltraFit 500 Sports Headphones (available now for around $50)

The Scoop: While we’re still fully in New Year’s resolution mode, a key to getting these new habits off the ground is having the right tools. And with so many pledging to get or stay fit in 2012, it’s helpful to try and take the “work” out of working out.

Working out with music has always been helpful for me, but finding a pair of headphones that can keep up have always been a challenge. The Polk Audio UltraFit 500 Sports Headphones are all about excellent performance under the sometimes punishing conditions athletes can dish out.

Aside from exceptional sound Polk is famous for delivering, features athletes will love are the (included) three interchangeable cable length options, a very secure fit via in-ear and ear hook fitting, and a durable, sweat-friendly rubberized construction.

But if you need yet another reason to give the UltraFit 500′s a test drive, the very reasonable $50 price makes these a strong option that will keep the music and the inspiration pumping this year.

A Great Gift For: For hard-core fitness freaks and newbie resolution makers alike.
