Astro A40 Headset + MixAmp Pro - Black
the best of the best
these headsets are amazing i've had turtle beaches,trittons & now astros & there's no comparison the comfort is out of this world i can have them on for 6+ hours & they never bother me its like not even having a headset on the sound quality is unbelievable it imerses you immeditally into the game when people say you get what you pay for is spot on before when i heard people say that i thought they were just being cocky a defenite buy & if you're thinking of getting a gaming headset save your money & purchase these astro A40"s you won't regret it
great if you know how to use them
i have owned these for about 6 months and i can say that they are built to last. They are the most durable and one of the best sounding headphones on the market. The mixamp is a little hard to figure out because the sound drops out and you need to get the patch from astro.com. other than that it is worth the $250. Turtle beach is not worth the money. I would know i owned 3 pairs in about 1.5 years. tritons are nice but they are not built to last. if you have the money and you play/use them enough, i would buy these over every headset on the market.
Amazing! Great Buy!
Amazing! Out of all of the gaming headsets i have owned, ( TB x31, Razer Carcharias, Tritton AX Pro's 5.1), these are by far my favorite and then ones i feel are the best with everything from sound quality to mic performance. The headset works flawlessly and took almost no time at all to set up. The optical input works beautifully with the Dolby digital 7.1 surround sound from my computer and the 5.1 surround sound from my Xbox. The mic is crisp and clear while at the same time only picking up my voice and no background noise. You also get what you pay for in the way of build quality and packaging;you can tell that Astro has put some thought and quality work into their product, from the way the box is designed, to be used as a case for transport, all the way to the high quality of the cables they provide.
These by far are the greatest headphones ive ever used/owned. i would recommend these to anyone, The quality of the sound is better than my studio beats, and that says a lot. i love everything about this headset except the wires but they aren't even that bad.The price is pretty high but once you get them, you will more than satisfied with how great these are. WORTH EVERY PENNY. . . .BUY THESE.....its for your own good:)
Not worth the money. Buy triton 720+
I play nothing but call of duty and have had several headsets. I play at least 3 hours a day and I can tell u that these are NOT comfortable for more than two hours of play time. They sound great but not any better than the triton 720+ headset that is a 100.00 less. Now the box it comes in is really cool and when u open it up your like wow these are great but I'm sorry a box isn't worth 100.00. I'm not gonna say they are terrible because they don't buy I have had turtle beach px12, px5 and px400. I've had triton ax720 and the new triton 720+. And the triton headsets have been the best value. Tritons sound great and are comfortable. I've played 10hrs with tritons and never was uncomfortable wearing them. Anybody who has given astro a40 a great review either have owned nothing but astro's or have had turtle beaches which are not very good at all. By the way turtle beach are not a good headset. If u have ever owned a pair of tritons than you know how great they are And couldn't give astro's a great review. They are good just not worth the money. Hope this is helpful. I'm selling my astro's in Craigslist and buying another pair of tritons 720. Oh and GameStop pushes these cause they say that's what MLG uses but that's cause astro sponsors MLG and that's the only reason.
best head set out there
very good sound and very comfortable way better than turtle beach the price is a little high but for the quality its worth it
this is the most terrible heqadset i ever bought/ buy the turtle beach x12 after i bought these way to expensive pieces of junk i bought those and they are much better
The new 2013 Edition Astro A40's are awesome
First.. I'd like to state that I have both the 2013 Edition (Wired) Astro A40.. & 2011 Edition (Wireless 5.8).. I haven't ran into any notable problems w/ either one thank GOD :) Both are really comfortable & in my opinion.. worth the asking price . Apologize for mentioning both in the review so much.. My purpose for this is to assure those who have never tried an Astro Gaming Headset that the 2013 Edition regardless of any negative feedback written are awesome & unique. Unique because the sound quality while different than the 2011 Astro's.. Is still the best I ever heard period! I've used Turtle Beach X31's.. 41's.. & the PX5 but Astro is in a league of their own when it comes to Console Gaming Headset's .
this is perfect for any hardcore gamer. I f you have money to blow get this headset it is the best! :)
The best headset ever!
This headset is amazing the sound quality is super and the design is really cool looking. I only have one concern and that's the Xbox live chat cable is connected to the mix amp and has a short cable. It would've been better if the cable would go into the main headset cable like turtle beach but other than that it's amazing. It's worth every penny and dollar!
