Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Also the sound goes in and out at times, not sure if that is the headphones or the headphone adapter, but it is annoying nonetheless."
_
"The additional adapter that plugs into the bottom of the controller is additionally annoying."
_
"I did notice the audio seem louder when using anything else but the XBOX One so i'm thinking previous complaints I read lie more with the Microsoft adapter then the actual quality of the headphones."
_
"Polk said the Microsoft adapter is the root of the problem."
_
"That will solve your issues until Microsoft can patch the terrible chat adapter."
_
"It is very apparent that the adapter is the weakest link here when this headphone doubles as my headset for conference calls and mic works great."
_
"The 3.5mm adapter is great and you can plug any type of headphone to it!"
_
"Chat works perfect even comes with the controller adapter made by Microsoft and even an update cord!"
_
"For XBox One users, great deal, headphones come with audio adapter for the XBox One controller."
_
"But if you need to buy a chat adapter than these were like only $35.00 and that is a good price."
_
"If you have the adapter already and a decent mic'd pair of headphones I would use that instead."

Beach

Beach:
"Previously I had owned some Turtle Beach Earforce Z2's for gaming on my laptop and the sound on those was horrible compared to these 4Shot."
_
"I purchased these over the Turtle Beach competitor partially due to my Turtle Beach headset for my Xbox 360 being relatively uncomfortable (especially for someone wearing eye glasses, such as myself) and due to quality issues myself and others had experienced."
_
"I'll be buying the Turtle Beach's XO Seven's for my Xbox one more for curiosity at how they will sound with game audio as they are not expensive & I can easily use the Turtle Beach's I have with the new adapter to allow us hardcore gamers to use our top of the range Turtle Beach's."
_
"I used to own turtle beaches for the PS3 before switching over to Xbox and never really had a problem with them."
_
"I returned these and purchased the xo7 from turtle beach awesome headphones great sound and chat."
_
"To be honest, if we were to rate mics on a scale of 1-5:Turtle Beach XO Seven: 5 5Standard Xbox Mic: 4 5Polk 4Shot: 3 5Rate Comfort:Turtle Beach: 2 out of 5Standard Xbox Mic: 4 out of 5Polk 4Shot: 6 out of 5Overall good quality sound."
_
"the sound is not loud enough as my turtle beach for 360 use to be but well they work great and are clear."
_
"It sounded as good, if not better than my powered turtle Beach XP400s."

Cable

Cable:
"It was probably one of the best headsets i had, the cord broke about 4 months after i started using it though"
_
"OTHERWISE , these things are dead perfect, AND come with a cord for your phone as well as the x box, and a cord that comes with an extra microphone boom which boasts being a professional grade auxiliary component."
_
"If you are concerned about the negative reviews don't be..... the cable for the update is included and it took all of two minutes to do....."
_
"I solved this problem by using a smartphone auxiliary cable."
_
"It is hard to find headphones with the proper cables, other than Nokia branded ones."
_
"I also like the braided cable that runs between the headphones and the controller more than the flimsy plastic cord on the Polk."
_
"Can't do anything about it your earmuff is pretty much hanging by a wire which surprising didn't break (Too broke to get another headset) the cord was getting over worked even one side of my headset went out along with the mic given to me stop working."
_
"It was probably one of the best headsets i had, the cord broke about 4 months after i started using it though"
_
"It come with an additional cable with a single button on the cable to answer and hang up calls as well as pause and play your media."

"I received it fast, and was surprised and happy because my hamster chewed through the cord that went to the original xbox one headset."
_
"The pro boom mic is a must and the flexible cable is great."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Not a excellent headset for game but you will like the comfort."
_
"It doesn't sound as good as the Polk; but the microphone works, it's lighter, it's more comfortable, and it costs much less."
_
"The comfort and audio quality far outweigh that downside for me."
_
"Fantastic sound quality and very comfortable."
_
"Built quality is excellent, and better than most, the comfort is excellent do to the fact that are OVER-EAR you can play during several hours... and btw these are quite light setup."
_
"I think the best feature is the comfort ."

Console

Console:
"The headset: Okay, so it's a quality-built headset, with decent sound from the console."
_
"I can not verify this yet because after I registered my product I never received a notice that the mic is on the way (but I am waiting on a response from Polk's customer service to let me know).The good:-Sounds great-Looks great-Comfortable-Wireless (to the console)The bad:-Built in mic is quiet-Boom mic attachment does not come with the mic"
_
"Microphone: I have found the adjustable boom microphone to be of excellent quality (also limited to the capabilities of the console, internet bandwidth, and Xbox Live)."
_
"Polk has made an incredible headset and it is by far the best you could get on any console."
_
"Pros:No Batteries neededOnly one wire to connect to controllerConsMic is useless (I have friends with all the latest and greatest headsets also the mic included with console and they all barely hear me using the original mic)Amount of usage:I probably get more usage out of these things in one week than the average user gets for a whole month."

Controller

Controller:
"The additional adapter that plugs into the bottom of the controller is additionally annoying."
_
"I also bought a pair of the TB XO Sevens for comparison, and found that they feel cheap and look ridiculous (unless you are going for the air traffic controller on Mars look)."
_
"The wire to the controller can be a little annoying, and the sound has cut out for a second or two nearly every time I have used them."
_
"If you have any performance issues with these after march 31st 2014, then you have simply failed to update the xbox controller software."
_
"I also like the braided cable that runs between the headphones and the controller more than the flimsy plastic cord on the Polk."
_
"Like other negative reviews, the chatThe problem is most people (I hope you updated your controllers firmware --- go to settings then to update controller lower left)like myself don't or didn't understand the new adapter, I thought that the controller icon meant game and the person meant chat and when I clicked that button I was enabling that sound control + - raising and lowering that specific sound similar to a universal remote for a tv vcr dvd whatever ... WRONG!"
_
"(The PS4 controllers don't have this same problem for whatever reason.)"
_
"So I plug them into the Xbox controller, and there's a quick update, and they work great."
_
"No matter if the headset is plugged into my phone or my xbox controller, the sound is crisp, clear, and loud."
_
"Chat works perfect even comes with the controller adapter made by Microsoft and even an update cord!"
_
"They don't use to much power, but if you like to play all day (or nite) get yourself a good charger and maybe another controller so you can rotate them, I use the energizer dual charger."

Design

Design:
"For a headset supposedly designed around xbox and gaming these are not the best for voice chat."
_
"Unfortunately I guess they forgot to design a solid microphone!"
_
"It's by far the weakest part of the setup, but it was designed by Microsoft, so I believe all compatible headsets use the same puck."
_
"My only regret is how the mic is not really a functioning part of package but to my surprise its not because the headphones are broken or designed poorly but because of defult mic volume restrictions by the xbox one controller."
_
"Lastly, the design of this set of headphones is great."
_
"These are very well designed and built, providing clear, quality sound."
_
"I purchased these just after my XB1 at the time they were the best available design in my opinion, like everyone else I had huge problems with the mic eventually after going on forums etc."
_
"Great sound also noise canceling Great Quality and design."

Fit

Fit:
"Also, if you have a large head, the fit will be very snug and slightly uncomfortable."
_
"Pros:Fits nicely on headComfortable over earNice Sound QualityYou'd think with those good features that it would get a good review, but I just can't do it."
_
"they also do a really good job of blocking out background noise because of how they fit all the way around my ears."
_
"Pro- No cable running from XB1 to headset, no batteries needed, sounds of speaker game audio is solid, comfortable fit, well made."
_
"Comfort: For me, they fit very well and cover my ears, and it muffles out external sound for the most part which is nice."
_
"Good, snug fit."

Gaming

Gaming:
"NOT RECOMMENDED FOR GAMING"
_
"I will tell you exactly why: The success or failure of a particular gaming headset is, largely, up to the individuals expectations and what that person has determined to be their comfort zone concerning 3 things: 1) Quality, 2) Engineering and 3) Wireless or Wired."
_
"Previously I had owned some Turtle Beach Earforce Z2's for gaming on my laptop and the sound on those was horrible compared to these 4Shot."
_
"Headphones on their own are nice, good audio quality and still work for that purpose when plugged into other devices, BUT this was purchased to be a gaming headset, and as a gaming headset it pretty much fails."
_
"not good for gaming."
_
"Great headphones, terrible gaming headphones."
_
"These are really nice for music I will say, but using them for gaming is just awful."

"Polk is already treating you well, before the headset is even in use."
_
"With the Xbone: Once the headset is setup, it functions pretty well...with some minor stipulations, which are mostly the Xbone's fault."

Level

Level:
"Now that I have this boom mic, if I have the volume for the game up at a decent level, I get complaints that people can here themselves from my game audio coming from the headphone speakers."
_
"That is not to say that it is too quiet though..I would say that the tuning on the volume it's great, it is just sometimes I prefer to crank it a little above the recommended safe listening level."
_
"The only way I've been able to use this headset with my friends online is if I have chat and game audio below a comfortable level."
_
"Now that I have this boom mic, if I have the volume for the game up at a decent level, I get complaints that people can here themselves from my game audio coming from the headphone speakers."

Microsoft

Microsoft:
"I did notice the audio seem louder when using anything else but the XBOX One so i'm thinking previous complaints I read lie more with the Microsoft adapter then the actual quality of the headphones."
_
"Unfortunately, as of writing (Nov 2014) Microsoft still hasn't released a driver update for the terrible microphone."
_
"Polk said the Microsoft adapter is the root of the problem."
_
"Okay these headphones are great, one problem though the mic or puck as Microsoft and Polk Audio calls it is pretty much useless at this point, Microsoft designed the puck so they are responsible for issuing out an update to fix the problem and as long as you register your 4Shot Polk Audio will be sending you a mic that plugs in on the headset for free."
_
"That will solve your issues until Microsoft can patch the terrible chat adapter."
_
"Unfortunately as many of us are aware they have had a problem getting this issue resolved with Microsoft and as of now (over a month later) this is still an issue."
_
"I bought these after all the marketing telling me how working directly with Microsoft really gave them an advantage."
_
"Okay these headphones are great, one problem though the mic or puck as Microsoft and Polk Audio calls it is pretty much useless at this point, Microsoft designed the puck so they are responsible for issuing out an update to fix the problem and as long as you register your 4Shot Polk Audio will be sending you a mic that plugs in on the headset for free."
_
"And Please take any reviews prior to this one wiith a grain of salt as they were all made BEFORE the update, Polk made great headphones, sadly microsoft dropped the ball on the firmware."

Noise

Noise:
"You can hear raindrops, shell cases hitting the ground as well as random noises you wouldn't be able to hear just by listening to the gameplay through your flatscreen."
_
"But now whenever I do small movements, or when selecting an option in-game(titanfall) and it makes a small noise, the right headphone always clicks hard to explain but its quite annoying, it only does it on small sounds, if the sound is constant I do not get it."
_
"I believe it is because the Polks do such a good job at quieting outside noises, including your voice when you speak."
_
"He said it has amazing noise canceling feature."
_
"they also do a really good job of blocking out background noise because of how they fit all the way around my ears."

Speaker:

"There is a terrible voice echo for anyone in chat with me and they can hear my game audio if I have the headset volume above 50%."
_
"If you aren't shouting, your voice does not transmit well to other connected players."
_
"Voice -- the only downside is that you have to add the plug in mic, which they provide."
_
"The only thing that is disappointing is the retractable microphone doesn't pick up you voice very well."
_
"It also has great mic quality, as I can speak quietly and still be heard very well by people I'm playing with AND hear my own voice appropriately in the headset so I don't start yelling to hear myself talk."
_
"the Chat Pro mic come with the package now since so many people have been complaining about the built in mic not performing and it works great, but once again no voice feedback, not really worth $120."

Volume:
"Overall, great headset, awesome features (like the ability to separate and adjust game vs party volume) but a minor hiccup with the mic, but it can be resolved very easily."

Wireless

Wireless:
"TL;DR Review:With sound quality equivalent to a pair of $20 headphones (they sound like Sony MDR-30s), mediocre wireless signal stability (pops and crackles interfere with sound), and an awkward fit that too big for users with smaller heads, the 4Shots tarnish Polk's otherwise good name and cost about three times what they're worth."
_
"I than hooked up my PS4 gold wireless headset that has a mic hidden on it also,and it works fine."
_
"The Headset,PROSQuality=GreatSound=GREAT, (disclaimer my run on sentences) I had the X31's before for 360 (my first headset and I loved them) the problem with all the wireless headsets, at least the turtlebeaches that are not bluetooth is that when USB is plugged in, regardless if the console is on or not they knock your WiFi down about 50%, all you tech gurus can check 802.11a b g n don't matter..... maybe its 43% but I know i checked mine and my friends house that has X31's and the wireless, megabits, dropped, BIG TIME!"
_
"I should clarify that the audio quality on Xbox One is NOT a deficiency of the headset or Polk Audio's fault, the fault lies in Microsoft for not being able to transmit wireless simulated surround sound at the moment (apparently, a patch will enable this in the near future).Basically, the Polk Melee headset is an amazing product when playing on Xbox 360 due to the DSP amplifier that allows for simulated surround sound and a 3D sense of immersion."
_
"The sound is fairly decent for a wireless signal."
_
"Same results wired and wireless XBOX controllerHad good audio sound when not in parties or playing from a ipod or other devices"
_
"great headset, awesome sound, and its wireless which is nice since i always find myself tripping over wires... mic doesn't give feedback however, so i kinda feel like i have to shout even though i might not have to."
_
"If you're looking for wireless headsets please look elsewhere."
_
"I have owned Sony Wireless headphones...they were pretty decent, decent surround reproduction decent sound."

Xbox:
"The mic didn't work Other than that great headphones for the Xbox one"
_
"Because the mic broke on me I am worried that I will have to go through the same issues that I did with the xBox one puck and my old X31s,which is to say I'll need to buy a new mic adapter every 6 months."
_
"I have read other places that the mic is not very good for Xbox One use but mine is just fine."
_
"The Built-in Mic:Yes, it's hard to hear me in Xbox Live party."
_
"Great audio, but it is terrible for the Xbox one."
_
"I did notice the audio seem louder when using anything else but the XBOX One so i'm thinking previous complaints I read lie more with the Microsoft adapter then the actual quality of the headphones."
_
"But that's my mistake not seeing that before I purchased, other than that these are a great headset for the Xbox One."
_
"Its a must buy great sound quality for your Xbox one specially on forza Motorsport 6"
_
"So I plug them into the Xbox controller, and there's a quick update, and they work great."
_
"I used to own turtle beaches for the PS3 before switching over to Xbox and never really had a problem with them."
_
"If you don't have any friends on Xbox live and don't talk much, then these would be great, (especially for the sale price)."
