    Rated 2 out of 5 by from great sound TERRIBLE mic popping All Astro microphones have great ratings, as they are all great mics, the sound quality is very well for this specific one as well. But the microphone itself makes terrible popping and crackling noises. I'm a PC/PS4 gamer and I've had nothing but problems with the microphone portion of this headset, like i said it has great sound, just bad mic quality. It's been described to me as a wind tunnel noise or like someone is blowing into the mic from very close. If you read some other reviews about the A40 Gen 2's specifically there are actually problems with the connection of the mic to the headset that causes the noises and it is not fixable to my observation. I've had this mic since last christmas and it seems like its gets more of a hassle to use every day. Just trying to be informative to anyone thinking of picking it up, thanks!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! I was weary of buying headphones over $200 but after trying out different Turtle beach headsets and being dissapointed I decided to pull the trigger on these Astros. The main selling point was it had its own amp to power the headset, the turtle beach headsets I tried sound was too low to enjoy for movies. I used to have a 5.1 surround system and these sound 95% just like my 5.1 system minus the sub and some rear speaker effects. Ive had these for a yr now and have had only one problem. The cord plug into the headset comes straight down and sometimes I get my arm caught in it and rip/jerk it out. Makes me feel im going to break it but after 4-5x it still works strong. I would def recommend these, they are comfortable and sound great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Headset EVER! I've had alot of headsets, from Thrustmaster Y250P's to Turtlebeach PX51's, and nothing has ever given me the quality that I received with my Astro A40's. The give beautiful sound and are the most comfortable things in the world. The customer service is amazing. Also, don't say,"250 bucks, that's way too much for a headset!" They are worth every penny.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible this head set I bought and had to return them, the sound and comfort is amazing the mic is tho terrible, doesn't work, I bought this for xbox one, and I have the adapter, but the mic wasn't working so I wanted my money back and I got it back, but I would go with the turtle beach PX51, there incredible, also there was way to many wires, I also looked up the problem on google and it took me to astro's website and I looked at the comments it was filled with the mic not working and there was a astro employ that commented saying we can fix the problem we are sorry that you have to deal with it, go for turtle beach the PX51 have the same sound quality, 7.1 Dolby digital surround sound. add me if you have a XBOX one Deadlykillz5574

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from its good but not perfect I used the turtle beach x42 for a year now and it was my first virtual surround sound gaming headset and MAN i had an amazing experience with them for my xbox 360 and xbox one. I always been curious why astro gaming headsets are one of the best gaming headset in the market, so i bought the astro a40 at gamestop for about $218.00 after tax because it was on sale. I was really surprise about the sound quality on the astro a40 because it was so neutral, crisp and has loud BASS but the 5.1 surround sound from the (playstation 4 and xbox one) console was SLIGHTY better than the turtle beach x42 when it comes to hearing footsteps and gunshots in FPS like battlefield or call of duty. The features on astros like listening to music while your gaming and its compatibility with (playstation/xbox/pc) is really great, in my mind i thought having the astro a40 was going to give me a massive advantage than the x42 in FPS and it didnt. The most important thing was the mix amp pro that gave me those feature options and varieties to enjoy having an astro headset. I forgot to mention that the design and comfort on the headset is absolutly amazing. I am now looking towards seeing and hearing about the new turtle beach dts x surround sound headsets. Whats so special now about DTS X 7.1 surround sound headset compare to a 7.1 dolby digital headset?????
