Summary: Pros: Design - leather head-straps and ear-cups make it very comfortable to wear, virtually eliminates all outside noise. The majority of the headset is metal unlike other sets which assures me that it will last a good long time. Easy to connect to your mp3 player or xbox one controller via 1 wire. (3.5mm). Mic retracts directly into headpiece, it is small as well so you dont have this big mic sticking out in front of you. Sound - deep, rich sound..
Summary: I bought both these and the Turtle Beach XO7. Whil these headphones were good, I don't feel they jusitifed the price tag. I wanted to like them really badly, but found myself preferring the XO7's on almost every aspect. This has nothing to do with the mic fix. I bought these well knowing I may run into mic issues. Pros: Styling - sleek, can use outside of the house Build - I don't get any complaints about potential durability.
Summary: I've been looking and waiting for the perfect headset for my xbox one. Was very hopeful for these. I can not confirm whether the cutting out and intermittent sound is due to the chat adaptor from microsoft or the headset or a combination of both but it does cut out quite frequently. The mic is also no good for chat. Ive played in private parties and people had an extremely hard time hearing to where they had to turn game volume down on their headset just to hear me.
Summary: Purchased these and the TB XO Sevens but sadly disappointed in both. My biggest disappointed and the reason I returned both is not sound quality or mike problems but simple loss of functionality and no true sound immersion. At least they are a step up from the included headphone/mike.
Summary: I just received my Polk 4Shot’s early last week, after months of anticipation for a gaming headset, that doubles as an everyday quality headphones. After unboxing here are the items that came in the box, Polk 4 Shot (headphones) of course, xboxone stereo headset adapter, 3.5 mm to 3.5mm gaming audio cord to connect to xboxone stereo headset adapter, a 3.5 mm to 3.5mm audio cable with push button for other devices such as a phone and a micro usb to usb which connects to...
Summary: I have a pair of Turtle Beach X31's for my 360 and they were great, besides the fact that I had to change the batteries every 8 hours and it seemed like always in the middle of an intense moment. So I decided to go with Polk. I was worried that I would have chat problems because of the drop down mic instead of the usual boom mic, and it's true some gamers can't hear you well on xbox one because Microsoft needs to fix their patch for the controller.
Summary: I had a few questions about these headphones before i got them. So I was a little apprehensive on getting them but bought them anyway. My first thoughts were these are surround sound headphones. Well they aren't. That's why I deducted a star. These are stereo headphones. Every where I looked I got mixed answers so there it is Stereo headphones. They are a solid sturdy headphone. And the audio out of them is great. Compared to my Astro A50's there is no match.
The Mic was not a problem. Not as bad as everyone is saying.

Summary: After reading all of the reviews (50 or 60) I was skeptical about getting these but I knew the sound would be superior to what I currently own (Earforce X41) so I kept my pre order and they came yesterday and boy was I not disappointed. The mic was NOT!!! a problem for me and my friends as I played Titanfall all day and they could hear me just fine.
Summary: So the mic is terrible. I am talking and nobody is responding, so i think they are just quite. NOPE! Turns out nobody can hear me and i have to scream into the mic for anyone to hear me. You cant hear youself in the headset, the earcups hurt my ears, and the head set is very tight. Also, the surround sound is pretty bad. I hear gun fights in the distance and i run out there and its the end of the map. Direction of sound is terrible.
