Polk Audio today released the Striker Pro Premium Gaming Headsets, which come in two variations that are each under $150. The Striker Pro Zx is an officially licensed Xbox One headset which ships with an exclusive, Polk-developed wireless headset adapter, and the Striker Pro P1 is PlayStation 4, Wii U, laptop and mobile compatible headset.
Striker Pro is Polk’s redesigned, third generation stereo gaming headset offering several updates and improvements to features and sound performance. The headset includes 40mm drivers with a Dynamic Balance Driver design and Polk Optimized Electronic-Acoustic Tuning (POET) to deliver a high-quality listening experience whether enjoying music, watching movies or playing games. For crystal clear chat, it features a newly designed, flexible and removable omni-directional microphone with push button mute for both console and PC gaming, as well as a small and discrete in-line microphone for mobile use. The Striker Pro Premium Gaming Headset boasts a lightweight design with pivoting ear cups and a metal headband wrapped in ultra-soft protein leather, offering optimal comfort, durability and flexibility during extended periods of use.
Adding to its versatility and unique customizable features for varying gaming preferences, the Striker Pro Premium Gaming Headset ships with three detachable cables, allowing users to easily switch between PC, console and mobile use. Cable offerings include:
- Mobile Connect Cable – a 1-meter, 3.5mm microphone cable with in-line controls lets users play, pause and make phone calls without having to touch their device
- Dual-Jack Console Controller Connect Cable – unlike the standard 3.5mm cable, this 1-meter custom console cable delivers high-fidelity audio to enhance microphone performance and eliminate crosstalk. Both the Striker Pro Zx and Striker Pro P1 allow for easy access to master volume and microphone mute without having to use the onscreen menus. The Striker Pro P1 exclusively ships with a PlayStation 4 in-line attenuator to adjust the microphone’s gain to ensure it does not distort during loud chat sessions and heated gameplay
- Dual-Jack, Detachable, Extra-long Pro PC Connect Cable – Polk’s very own 3-meter (9.8 ft.) long Pro PC connect cable lowers the noise floor to eliminate crosstalk and boost microphone clarity for exceptional audio performance
“With a 40-year legacy of crafting quality speakers, we know what it takes to properly voice a headset to ensure it delivers precise, balanced and rich sound for all types of listening,” said Michael Greco, global brand director for Polk. “What makes the Striker Pro Premium Gaming Headset stand out is its superior acoustics, universal compatibility and custom cable options. Now gamers have access to a great-sounding and comfortable over-the-ear design that conveniently allows them to switch between different gaming devices and truly enjoy the personal audio experience.”
