Rated 3 out of5 bythevulcan83 fromGreat headset. Just missing somethingI bought this headset when it first came out. Loved it. Polk sent you a boom mic once you registered it. Then they made it so that it came with the headset. I bought the Astro Halo headset and gave my 4Shot away. The Astro was garbage so I bought another 4Shot. This one didn't come with a boom mic. Came with a cord and the mic is on the cord. My friends can't even hear me talk. If it had the boom mic I'd give it a 5 star.

Rated 5 out of5 byJMiller2393 fromGreat Headset/ Great tech supportI have had this headset for a year and I have been thoroughly pleased with every feature of it. I use it for gaming or just listening to music while doing homework. Suddenly, it stopped working on me so I called tech support. Tech support was AMAZING!! I got on the phone with someone with almost no wait and they helped me find a solution so quickly it was incredible. I can't wait to get some of the home audio products for my apartment after graduation! I highly recommend this product and this company!

Rated 4 out of5 byPapa_Slatch fromExcellent Quality. Packaging is a misleading.I got this about a week ago. This is a great headset. Make no mistake about that. Excellent sound. The only reason I'm giving it a 4 is because the box is misleading. The headset is NOT a wireless headset. It is tethered to the wireless Xbox One controller. When I see something claim to be wireless, I expect it to be completely wireless. That was the main reason I bought this headset. If it were wireless like the box said it was, then it would get 5 stars. Sadly, this is not the case. It's not a deal breaker, though. I'm going to keep it since it is great sound quality.

Rated 2 out of5 byBender fromDecent Headphone - Mic Issues... StillI pre-ordered these when they first came out and decided it was time for a short review. The sound quality is great for gaming and movies in general. 4 Stars here.Mic didn't work well at the beginning which I'm sure everyone knows by now. They sent out a replacement cord that had a boom mic attached in order to fix the issue. It did not. I did the updates and still no talky talky. Pretty much the sole reason for purchasing a gaming headset. Otherwise I would have gone with a sound specific headset. 2 star deduction.After about 6 months of use, the headset snapped right at the top under the padding. They still work, but they do not fit well anymore. I'll just toss this off to high usage. No deduction.

Rated 5 out of5 bySkepticTank fromExcellent Directional PositioningFirst off, I cannot yet comment properly on the Mic as I have not used it extensively. I was told, using the phone cable, that the audio was very low. I changed it to my beats phone cable and apparently the voice was much better. Now, for the review..Also I bought the Melee (but I think they are the same as the 4 Shots)This headset provides excellent sound. I used it to play BF4 and the directional sound is amazing. I have read through many reviews and discussions about the difference between stereo and replicated 'surround' headsets to see if there is a difference and if it will be good for games especially competitive FPS and got mixed opinions. Well, after using these I definitely can say that the positional sound for these are great.I always knew that positional sound on stereo headsets were there, just not how good they are compared to replicated surround headsets. This was proven to me when, in the heat of battle, I tracked down an enemy whilst in a smoke grenade radius with no visibility and was able to follow him exactly where he was just listening to his footsteps.I was previously using an XO Four and they were good, I had no issues but these things are just much better overall. Better build, better comfort, better sound. It just feels more.. premium. However, I have only had this for a couple of days so I don't know how the quality of the materials used will fair in the long term.I try my best to look after my headsets and I really hope these don't break on me.

Rated 5 out of5 byTSA9111 fromSound is awesomeAfter testing all of Turtle Beach XO's and even the Stealth 500X pair I decided to give these a test drive. So glad I did, not much out there for the Xbox one, but these sound great, so good I bought an extra pair to have as spares. I don't think Polk is going to continue to sell this model. There is really only one con, the MIC. it works but that's about it. I'm waiting for customer service to send me new cables with boom mics, we'll see if that resolves the issue. Will update upon receipt...

Rated 5 out of5 byDURKE fromGreat headset but you need the polk....Great headset but you need the polk controller adapter for mics. This adapter will rid the headset of echo issues. The adapter however is not for sale. It will come with the Striker ZX for xbox one headset. I received one of those as a replacement for my 4shots and absolutely love them!

Rated 5 out of5 byJFireWD fromGreat Head SetI've read a lot of bad reviews about the mic, I didn't have that issue, easy set up and started playing online with some friends and they could hear me perfectly, the sound quality is awesome and the design too.
