Real gaming impact, real gaming audio.

When you're gaming, you want no-holds-barred performance. Anything less is just plain less. So go for the gaming headset engineered in collaboration with the game sound designers themselves. Polk's new Melee Gaming Headset is the result of the first-ever collaboration between the sound engineers of today's most awesome games and the audio experts at Polk. Designed to be the only headphone system you'll need for gaming, music and phone applications, Melee merges comfort with performance and strikes out in a whole new audio direction.

Working with the audio experts at Polk, the sound engineers of the best-selling games Halo and Forza Motorsport created four optimized gaming EQ settings for the Melee Headset. These four unique immersion modes, "Forza Racer," "Halo FPS," "Music" and "Cinema," deliver maximum performance and more thrilling listening experiences at the touch of a button. In comparison, other gaming headsets reveal themselves as tin cans!

"Polk brings a reputation for product excellence and a passion for sound that makes them an ideal collaborative partner for innovating new audio accessories for the Xbox One® and Xbox 360®," says Branden Powell, Microsoft Director of Strategic Alliances. "These new products are customized for all-in-one entertainment and will immerse users in brilliant sound, whether they are using the console to play a game, watch TV or a movie, or listen to music."
