Polk says the new headset's dynamic lossless technology will result in fewer latency issues, while a retractable near-field microphone will let users chat with other gamers or make calls.

It was recently revealed that the price of the Xbox One had been cut in the UK to £400, with the console appearing to struggle to match the sales of its rival, Sony's PS4.
