Fantastic Headset Posted by: from: on After having a hard time finding this headset around town. I finally found them in the Best Buy in another city. I read reviews and watched videos on youtube about them. I never owned a pair of Astros before. These couple of weeks that I've had them. I'm starting to wonder why I haven't gotten Astros from the start. This particular headset has amazing sound.( With Stereo sound that sounds like surround). It's customizable with the magnetic ear tags. The upgraded Astro MixAmp and M80 to fit in the Xbox one control is great! No need for the additional accessory from Xbox one. All the different ways to adjust voice, game sound volume and master volume. Not to mention the 3 presets that it has as well. It looks nice and performs very well. I like that the only wire is the one going to the controller and headset. No tripping over wires going to the Tv. They are comfortable as well. If you want use them for your music headphones you can do that too. The only small issue I have with them is they are just a bit heavy. Overall they are great and you won't be disappointed. Hope this helps you with your choice to buy or not buy. Good luck and game on!

Great Headset Posted by: from: on When looking at this headset I was skeptical of its sound quality primarily because it was not 7.1 Dolby; however, I was completely wrong. The following is included: A40 wired headset, A40 microphone (detachable), MixAmp (puck that plugs into the control), ASTRO speaker tags, 3.3' A40 audio cable (used to connect to other devices) and 1.6' micro USB cable (used to update the control if need be) Pros: style, sound quality (for being stereo), comfort, ease of use, and overall build quality. Cons: Price, not 7.1 Dolby, color scheme. Breaking down the cons: If you know ASTRO, you will know that their build quality and for this price you are definitely getting a great product. If you are interested in 7.1 Dolby, you will have to upgrade to the A50 $300 wireless version. Lastly, while I do not mind the current color scheme, I do wish there were more options as there are with the A50s. Overall, if your budget is under 200$ then this headset just meets that mark. When looking at other headsets in this relative price point (XO Seven ($160) or Polk’s – 4 Shot ($160)) I would have to say this is the best headset I have tried. The comfort level is amazing, super lightweight does not hurt my head wearing it for hours on end. Sound quality is fantastic for being stereo.

Great headphones but expensive Posted by: from: on First off let me just say I haven't owned a lot of different headphones to compare these to but am very picky with audio devices. Overall very impressed with the quality of build materials, fairly sturdy with plenty of adjustment. Very comfortable for extended gaming sessions on the ears. They do not block out sounds from your surroundings but I prefer that so I can still talk to someone in the same room without haven't to touch the headset. Sound quality is great but surely cant compare to real speakers. The sound quality is more then enough for intense gaming and plenty loud to make your games feel life like. Great if your listening for footsteps and trying to get an edge on your enemies. The volume adjustments with the built in mix amp are super easy to use and work great. The only real cons I have think of are they are very expensive for what they are, but if they last for years to come its a great investment, and randomly when my batteries are low or if I stray to far from my xbox I will get a very annoying and loud electronic chirp. Might be a way to fix this but I have yet to figure it out on my own.

Great headset for long duration gaming Posted by: from: on The convenience of the knob location is great. Audio quality for game or chat is definitely up to par for the price. The mic is adjustable in a multitude of directions. Excellent buy.

Great headset, pay a little more and get mixamp Posted by: from: on The headset itself is great, no issue. The M80 on the other hand, is next to worthless. I have a SCUF and elite controller, and it was a huge pain to switch back and forth between controllers depending on which game friends were playing. It fit very snug and is durable, but I was always worried about breaking it trying to get it to unplug. Not to mention the M80 is just garbage in general. I could hear foot steps, but the direction was all kinds of misleading and confusing. (some of the differences between dolby digital and surround sound and all that are easier to understand if heard instead of explained) I bought the mixamp TR edition and love it. Just pay a little more and get that whole package instead. Really, it is worth it 100%

Xbox One Version A Downgrade Posted by: from: Honolulu, HI on These new Gen2 Astro A40s specifically for the Xbox One are a complete downgrade from their previous line-up. In previous packages you received a MixAmp Pro + Astro A40 headsets which allowed you to experience gaming with Dolby Surround Sound. Make no mistake, this new Gen2 version of Astro A40s only support Stereo which is sound on the left and right. That's it, no different than using any other headset on the market. It is unfortunate that Astro has downgraded their A40 line-up for Xbox One users, but the only way to receive surround sound is to now buy Astro A50 Gen2s for the Xbox One.

Amazing sound, terrible fit Posted by: from: Spokane, WA on I ended up returning for the Turtle Beach 990 or whatever model # it is - I loved the Astro, but it made the top of my head hurt very bad after 1 session. The BBY sales rep did warn me on that as a potential & that if it did not fit, to try the Turtle Beach. I only list 3 stars due to the fit, sound is amazing quality.
