Microsoft and Polk Audio have collaborated to introduce the 4 Shot Headset for Xbox One, an over-ear wireless gaming headphone with mic, designed and tuned for gamers. Featuring proprietary Polk Optimized Electro-acoustic Tuning (POET), the headset claims to envelope users in immersive and realistic sound for a truly game-changing experience. In addition to delivering exhilarating audio, the 4 Shot connects to gamers’ wireless Xbox One controllers ($59.99), giving them the freedom to move around. Dynamic, loss-less wireless technology means fewer latency issues, so users can make the kind of split-second gaming decisions needed to play at their best.
As an additional feature, a retractable near-field microphone allows users to chat with other gamers or take calls, while remaining out of the way for those in-the-heat moments. Additionally, a spring steel headband with stitched leatherette padding, pivoting ear cups and plush over-ear pads provide gamers with comfort for long hours of gaming
The 4 Shot was developed in collaboration with Microsoft Studios at 343 Industries and Turn 10 Studios – the creators of the “Halo” and “Forza Motorsport” franchises. The designers set out to take you deeper into a virtual world, revealing the most real, balanced and natural audio experience.
