Polk is Xbox One sound partner, debuts soundbar

07 Aug 2013 | Rasmus Larsen |

Microsoft and Polk have decided to extend their sound collaboration from Xbox One. Polk is also the official sound partner for Xbox One. Polk has announced two new “Xbox One” products, one of them a new soundbar with built-in sound profiles for the Forza and Halo games.

Polk becomes Xbox One sound partner

Microsoft chose Polk as sound partner for Xbox 360 and the collaboration will continue with Microsoft’s new Xbox One console that launches in November.

The goal is to optimize the sound experience during gaming. When the Xbox One launches in November, Polk will develop specific sound profiles for games. The two first games will be the racing game Forza and the first person shooter gamer Halo.

A new soundbar and new headphones

One of the new products is the N1 soundbar that comes in two design variants; one all-black and the other one vanilla with wood.

The specifications list for the new soundbar has not yet been released but we are told that it delivers performance on par with Polk’s Surroundbar 9000 and that it will launch with an attractive price. The soundbar can be connected to the Xbox One via an optical cable.

Polk will also release its new 4 Shot headphones that are also optimized for the Xbox One gaming experience with customized profiles. In addition to the game-specific profiles Polk has also integrate general FPS, Racing, Cinema and Music profiles in both products. The small extension you see at the bottom of the headphones is the microphone that can be hidden inside the cabinet.

Polk's new Xbox One products, the N1 soundbar and the 4 Shot headphones, will launch together with the new Xbox One in November. Learn more at
