Polk Debuts Xbox Exclusive Accessories

Polk Soundbar and Headphones

Microsoft teamed up with Polk Audio to develop new sound products exclusively designed for Xbox One which debuted at the E3.

Polk created three new custom engineered products for Xbox One and Xbox 360, including the N1 Surroundbar, 133t Xbox 360 gaming headphones and 4 Shot Xbox One gaming headphones.

The company created the N1 sound bar and 4 Shot gaming headphones to deliver audio finely-tuned to the new Xbox One experience. The 4 Shot headphones are the first headset announced for the console. The 133t headphone was designed specifically for Xbox 360 gameplay.

The N1 sound bar is engineered with custom audio settings that reveal more of a game’s reality than ever heard before. Polk engineers considered the profoundly complex audio of games, including music, ambient details, special effects and dialogue, as well as the unique audio associated with different types of games, to develop four immersion modes for a tailored and immersive listening experience.

Gamers can select FPS mode for shooters or Racer mode for racing games during gameplay. Players can also choose Cinema or Music when using the Xbox One for entertainment outside of gaming. The audio perfection of the N1 sound bar is matched by its simple and upscale design that complements the Xbox One’s new place at the heart of the living room. The Polk N1 sound bar for Xbox One will be available near the console’s launch in black on black or vanilla with contrasting wood.

For a more personal but equally immersive gaming experience, Polk engineers created two new headphones to deliver individualized audio. The 4 Shot for Xbox One and 133t for Xbox 360 pack 40 years of Polk expertise in high-end speaker technology into a lightweight and ergonomic design for a performance that takes listeners deeper into a game. A near-field microphone allows users to chat with other gamers or accept calls from a cell phone during gameplay, while a spring steel headband and pivoting ear cups combine for a great fit and feel. The headphones are expected to release in the fourth quarter of 2013 and will come in desert white, nova blue and ink black.
