Review 1 for Xbox One 4 Shot Gaming Headset Black
Other considerations for you
This is a rather expensive headset and before there are reviews out describing the audio quality and depth,everyone should consider the PDP headsets made famous by their afterglow line. I bought their $80 universal afterglow pair 2 years ago and they still have the best audo for depth of head rattling bass to highs that sound like you are there yourself. With the new XBO models being $100 I would advise anyone on a budget to wait until reviews for this headset are announced as you may be able to save some money by going PDP.
I absolutely love the design of these headsets because their not jum*mum*bo*bumbo looking like the turtle beach headsets & they look way more comfortable to. Only concern i really have is the design of the mic because its literally next to your ear i just hope its really sensitive on picking up my voice. My particular interest in a new headset is so I don't have to speak so loudly for friends to hear me. I'm willing to try a new brand. Hope these headsets don't disappoint.

Review 3 for Xbox One 4 Shot Gaming Headset Black
Excited but Skeptical.
Excited but skeptical. I say excited with a twinge in my voice because if these headphones are anything like the "Polk N1 Gaming Sound Bar" get ready for some disappointment. At $300 the N1 is not even on par with some of the much cheaper Sony and even Vizio sound bars. As for head sets, I currently use the 2010 Turtle Beach X41s. They have been great but I'm looking for something newer and maybe with a little more bass in them. I have also tried the Astor A50s, the Beats Audio of gaming headsets. The A50s were horrible, all bass and no mids or highs. Still though, I'm looking forward to checking these out.

Review 4 for Xbox One 4 Shot Gaming Headset Black
Location: Havertown, Pa
No where under the product discription adn info could I find anything stating whether or not these headphones are surround sound. i bout some turtle beaches before under the assumption that they were surround sound headphones and they were not. So, can anyone confirm if these headphones are actually surround sound? and... do they function through hdmi?

Anytime you ever get a headset, whether it be Turtle Beach or Tritton, with 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound, it isn't true surround sound. They are always digital surround sound so it uses different areas of the speakers to simulate the experience of an actual surround sound system. On their website these are said to have digital 7.1 surround sound and are powered by the controller itself meaning no batteries needed. It will drain your controller batteries faster but less wires and if you have the play & charge kit, which I highly recommend if you don't, then it is easily remedied. I hope this helps!
Review 5 for Xbox One 4 Shot Gaming Headset Black
GOODBYE TURTLE BEACH!
I've used turtle beach headsets for years, now that Polk audio has came out with these headsets, I'm a happy gamer. Polk makes a great product (I use them for home audio & in my man cave). Their customer service is excellent and sound quality is impeccable. Turtle Beach is just the opposite. Their customer service is terrible and don't care about their customers as long as they get paid. I have dealt with TB for years, but no more. Pre-ordered these baby's and I can't wait to use them. Goodbye Turtle Beach and good riddance!

Do these headsets stop you from hearing the sound from outside of the headsets!?
Review 6 for Xbox One 4 Shot Gaming Headset Black
So is it wired or not
I'm really looking forward to this headset but cant seem to figure out if its wired or not, I've seen pictures of the wireless controller adapter but in an older ign article it was wired only to the controller. Then again in the description it says there's a 16 or 14 foot cable which leads me to believe that goes to the console, I mean what else would you need a cable that long for? It would be awesome if there's the option of both, can anyone help with this?

yes, but no the only with the X1 will be from the headset itself to the controller the rest is wireless.
Additional information about CMB2G could not be loaded.
it looks like it is wired and wireless. watching the video there is a plug in the ear opposite the drop-down mic. There is a wireless xb1 adapter and the cord might be for hooking up to either cellphone, tablet ect. But just going off the description and the video... would consider this since i could also use them outside the house.
Haha yeah, right!

I was doing some digging on the actual release date for these (some places are saying March, others say January, and February.), when I came across a thread about contacting customer service.
In the post the OP said that after contacting a rep he was told that the cable connecting to the controller is what powers the headset. They also went on to say that one cable connects from the digital audio out to a receiver, and as for the third cable, well that answer was overlooked. I don't believe everything that I read on the internet, but I have read similar threads that mention the same thing about the cable to headset being powered by the controller. So maybe there's some legitimacy to their claims.
I of course am too lazy to contact Polk directly, but have enough energy to respond to your post and do online research. Perhaps I'll email them, and get it from their mouth.

Should I get this over the XO Seven?
I honestly don't know whether I should get this headset or the XO Seven by Turtle Beach. To me it looks like there are things about the Polk 4 Shot that are more appealing and then there are things about the XO Seven that are more appealing. Can someone give me pros and cons on the both of them?

Ive had 2 turtle beach headsets go out on me already, the wired ones that is. Im going to steer clear of them from now on. Polks should be better, at least im hoping.

wait and see
I would suggest wait and see which one is better at launch. I don't see turtle beach being much better than what they already have out in sound and chat quality. Polk will have great sound but game chat is brand new for them so I would just wait and see in February when they come out

I think you should buy this headset- 4 shot. Cause you can use them on more than just gaming so I would buy the 4 shot over the xo cause the 4 shot has better sound quality and is much louder than the xo headset. So if you want lots of sound like you're in the game then I would buy the 4 shot the 4 shot is better than the xo headset by far. I like the better sound quality in the 4 shot better than the xo since I got to try them both out and the 4 shot wins for me. So its up to you what to buy cause its for you and not me. So good luck on what one you buy but you will love everything better with the 4 shot trust me it a lot better then the xo go with the 4 shot over the xo 4 shot wins all the way every time.

I'm really excited for this headset and xbox one as a whole. The last set of turtle beaches I purchased were awful ($150) the sound lagged and I could never get the game volume and voice volume to sound great together. I hope that polk comes into the gaming industry with a headset that really sets a whole new standard for sound in the 'gaming headset' industry

Both wired and wireless.
I don't have these myself but from the description and my buddy whose used them, they are wireless when used with the xbox one (can be wired if battery is out) and it goes wired to use with a computer or other device such as a tablet or ipod. So it is both depending on the current use. An awesome feature in my book.
