Xbox One 4 Shot Gaming Headset Black
good but not for gaming
I just finished buying these two headsets and I have to admit I was disapointed with the Polk 4 shot. They are a good headset but they do not live up to the hype that microsoft and polk made them out to be. If you are looking for a good music and style then the polk is where you want to be. I used both on bf4 and ghost. The XO7 gives you the fps feel and it does immerse you in the game. The shot 4 does not do any of that. I had my nephew take both on a spin and came up with the same conclusion. If you want a bf4, titanfall, ghost feel of the game stick with XO7. Please! If you are able to try both you will see what I am talking about. Hold on to your receipt!
I love this headset
Headset sounds amazing and what else to expect coming from polk audio, I expected the same quality as my 6 year old book shelf speakers and have confidence they will last longer than the other headsets. Even though there is a issue only between xbox live and the mic, ( i used this headset to make a phone call and my voice was crystal clear), Polk has sent me a inline boom mic which works great on xbox live for free didnt even have to pay shipping ( all you have to do is register your headset on polk website and receive ship confirm) until microsoft updates and fixes the issue. Now thats what i call customer support and thats why i still rated them a 10. also headset is very comfy i usually game for a couple hours and never feel discomfort. despite the bad reviews i did my research and trusted polk audio quality and i couldnt be more satisfied. I definitely recommend the Polk 4 Shot
Quality all around with a software fix on the way
Love this headset inside and out, and for those of you worried about the mic sensitivity, Polk's pres. made a statement about how there will be a software update soon from Xbox: From Kevin Duffy, President of Polk:

Good headset that could use a few upgrades
Good comfortable headset that could use a few upgrades. First would be a voice feedback in the mic so you can hear yourself and don't feel like you have to shout; example are my turtle beach X31s. Second is the USB cable that is supposed to connect the controller to the Xbox to update the count roller with the headset, it did not work, I borrowed one from a friend. I contacted Polk to see if they could replace the cable since it came with the headset but they told me it was a curtesy item and that they could not replace the defective cable. They told me that I should use the one that came with the Xbox, but I didn't get that cable with my COD Edition. I know it's a very cheap and minor thing but I was a little disappointed that a company like Polk didn't have better customer service. Overall it is an OK headset, but if I had to buy another headset I would go back to Turtle Beach.
Not good for game chat
Ok so I wanted surround sound with a mic my friends can hear me clear. I got a good head set for listing to music and that's it. You can not hear yourself talk with this headset so if you want to talk with someone you have to move on of the ear pads off your ear opps there goes your nice sound now we are down to mono head set that came with the xbox one add to that that everyone says you sound like your in a tin can when you talk and you have to use a add on boom mike because the other does not work and no blue tooth to your phone outch at 160 dollars no wonder they are discounting the things so much .
I guess these things are 5.1suround but they do not list this so not sure but they sound good dont get very loud but the sound is great. the feel and look of these are great.what is with xbox one and there lack of care about chat.
Polk Headset Xbox One Review
Easily one of the most comfortable headsets I have put on. A very soft, pleasing feel that rests on your ears makes it almost unnoticeable that you are wearing anything. Light headset that is good for travelling as its parts can be easily moved around to fit better in cases or luggage. The adjustment capabilities of the headset also work well with fitting on head shapes of many sizes.
The sound quality of the headset itself is outstanding. The bass quality is on another level, and the hearing improvement when it comes to online gaming make the headset completely worth it. Aside from gaming, it is also great for listening to music and a nice added touch is its ability to plug the headset into your phone.
The microphone placement is also different from most other headsets, but it is a nice to not have it in your face and it can be easily tucked away directly into the headset.
Overall I am very pleased with the experience of using this headset and I certainly recommend it for gaming enthusiasts.
THESE ARE GREAT MUCH BETTER THAN TURTLE BEACHES
THE REASON WHY I SAY THESE ARE AWESOME IS BECAUSE THEY CAN BE USED FOR MY XBOX ONE MY XBOX 360 , MY PHONE MY TABLET I TAKE THESE EVERY WHERE NOT JUST USED FOR MY XBOX AND THE SOUND IS GREAT I WAS GONNA BUY THE TURTLE BEACHES BUT I AM SO HAPPY I PICKED THESE INSTEAD BETTER PRICE BETTER DEAL , DOWN RIGHT BETTER
THESE ARE A GREAT BANG FOR YOUR BUCK AND I KNOW THESE ARE SOME OF THE BEST HEAD PHONES IVE EVER HAD SO YES I LOVE THEM
A great product great sound for games,Netflix. Etc
I got this product on 1-12-15 it's a great product in under an hour I knew I loved it very nice sound I was going to get this then see about a turtle beach but I love this one too much I'd get it
This head set I picked up on Black Friday and it is great! Some reviews said the Mic does not work very well but now Polk is packing in a boom mic with the headset. The Xbox one needed to do a update for the controller so the sound worked correctly and once the update was applied the head set works flawlessly.
