I just want clarification on one thing. There is absolutely no way of getting Dolby Digital 5.1 from the Xbox One at this moment for the 4Shot/Melee? I thought the March Xbox One update enabled this?

If you use the optical output instead of the controller for game audio, you can.

No, 4shot/melee do not do Dolby Digital.

Will the 4 shot ever have mic monitoring? Also is mic monitoring a hardware or software solution?

I bet Microsoft will make a microphone boost in the Xbox One settings like we can on are pc so we can set our volumes.

Do we have any update on this yet from Polk?
I've only got a couple days left before this headset has to go back and trust me, I don't want to take it back because the audio on it is superb and the built quality fantastic - but if I can't get decent performance from the mic, there's no point keeping it.
MY clock here is ticking Polk and I want to support you guys, but I will have absolutely no choice in about 72 hours from now.
What's the latest?

What update are you looking for? They (Polk) are not implementing the patch, it's a patch from Microsoft. In case you didn't know, Microsoft takes WEEKS to implement anything on Xbox Live with extensive testing prior to pushing to everyone. Since this was a missed bug, we're looking at several weeks before Microsoft does anything. Hell, I doubt it's even really on their roadmap yet. If you're looking for a fix within 72 hours, you aren't going to get it.
It's clearly MS' problem, not Polk Audio's.

and Upload Studio (made a voice over recording on an edited clip). The results were clear, audible, and undistorted. Therefore, the hardware works as Polk has stated.

So just return them and if you want them, buy them again when they are fixed. I don't see the problem here.

I'm not a gamer, so excuse me if I seem insensitive, but is life as you know it going to end if this mic issue isn't resolved yesterday? I mean, it is just a game after all.

I'm sorry, but I'm not understanding why people are giving Austacker such a hard time about this. Whether MS or Polk releases the update, it is 100% a Polk issue. I'm a fan of Polk audio going way back but I'm not understanding the apologists in these threads who seem willing to just accept a faulty product. I'm sorry, I just don't get it.
Here : Whenever I release an insurance policy to my insureds, I thoroughly read over every line to make sure that the issuing insurance company didn't miss anything because it's my job to make sure the client gets the coverages they requested. I would never just assume the insurance company got it 100% correct and send it along to the client. That is a really good way to put the insured at risk, open my agency up to lawsuits, and lose my license. See where I'm going? Maybe after I've been in the insurance industry, I'll be so "over it" that I won't do that step, but I hope that I'll know it's time to throw in the towel before that happens. My point is that this is a QC issue that was missed. Is it 100% Polk's fault? No. Unfortunately for them, they had to wait for MS to deliver the adapters but, unfortunately for us, they were in a hurry to get the headsets on the market and didn't test them properly.
Note : While I am frustrated that the headset doesn't work right, I'm not necessarily upset with Polk, I've come to expect these things with console launches over my lifetime. I am truly baffled at how some of you are treating Austacker like he's out of line. As he said, these aren't cheap. Just ask a lobby full of randoms on XBOX LIVE if they'd pay this much for headsets. Bet you'd only find a small fraction of them would. The rest are satisfied with the chat headsets and their home surround sound.

It's simple. He's a broken record, and comes off like an entitled child. I have the Melees, and I let polk know I was disappointed. That's it, nothing more. Why? Because Polk has always taken care of me, and they don't need me ranting on about how much money they are losing.
Rambling on like he was shows how immature he is. Polk has been around for a long time. They understand the importance of this issue and its ramifications. (that's why they got out in front of the issue immediately).
If he's that upset, and doesn't trust it will get fixed, he can return them.
Does that clear things up?
