Beat headset I've ever had Posted by: from: on I have had other headsets such as Turtle Beaches, HyperX's, corsairs, and logitechs but the Astro A40 headset takes first place in my gaming experience. The sound quality is exceptional and combined with the 7.1 surround sound it makes for a very enjoyable experience. I am able to hear every tiny sound or base frequency that I could not with the other headsets. Every sound high or low pitch is very crisp and immersive. When I was using the swappable microphone that comes with the A40s my friends told me that my voice was extremely clear. The A40s are the most comfortable headsets I have ever worn. I can wear them for hours and hours without feeling the need to take them off because of the nice foam like material and light weight of the frame. The Mixamp Pro is very convenient to have right next to me all the time at my desk. If I need to change the volume of the game all I have to do is reach my hand over to the dial and turn it which eliminates the need to go into the game settings and adjust everything which wastes precious time. The cord to attach the A40s to the Mixamp has an inline mute button to immediately turn chat off. The settings on the Mixamp are not very customizable but it's nice to have for convenience. I am very happy with this headset and I can say that it is well worth it to save up your money to get these.

Amazing Headphones Posted by: from: on After doing research on Headphones I came across the Astro A40 TR. IT comes with the mixer where you can set up your own custom headphone settings. You can really feel the quality of the headphones right when you unbox them and hold them in your hands. When you put them on your head, and over the ears the quality really shines. With the mixer I like being able to hear my party chat and plug in an AUX cable from the mixer to my computer so I can watch streams, youtube, or just play music from iTunes. My voice through party chat has never sounded more clear. The microphone has a way to reduce outside noise so your chat party doesn't need to be bothered with dogs barking, or your friend, family, or significant other watching TV in the next room. If you can spare the money I suggest you buy these headphones over turtle beach or any other gaming headset.

Pricey, but a Nice Upgrade from OEM Headset Posted by: from: Williamsburg, VA on I got the A40s after returning my (wireless) A50s because I couldn't get them to stay connected on my network. There were some slight fit differences, but nothing major. The sound is great, and connecting to the PS4 wasn't a problem because I bought the PS4 version of the headset. My A50s I had used with both my PS4 and my XBox One, and with the A50, I could use the same mix amp for both consoles. I was a little frustrated initially when I tried to connect the A40s, though, because I can't use the PS4 mixamp for the XBox One and had to work around it by plugging the mute cable into the controller, but I've got the headphones connected to the XBox One now (without the mixamp) and working fine, and the headset overall is great. I did like the OEM Sony Gold headset, but these are a nice upgrade, especially the surround sound!

Best headset for Call of Duty Posted by: from: on I mostly play Call of Duty and wanted to update my Turtle Beach EarForce Delta headset from 2011. I sit rather close to the PS4 and play on a 1 ms gaming monitor for fast response to my movements. I heard that Astro a40 TR was the official headset of Black Ops 3 so I decided to give it a try. I’m glad I did because the sound is amazing. The best part is that I was able to hook it up to my MacBook Pro and change the equalizer settings and save them to the Mix Amp Pro TR that comes in the box. You can change up to 4 settings on the fly by pressing the equalizer button on the MixAmp Pro TR. The headset is really comfortable. This fits my head better than the 2nd Gen a50 headset. I wear glasses so this works by not squeezing my ears too tight. Also you can use other headsets with the MixAmp Pro TR. Any Headset that uses a 3.5mm jack will work. Overall I am happy with my purchase and believe that the price was reasonable compared to other choices available.

The best headset hands down. Posted by: from: winston salem,nc on I returned the turtle beach elite 800 for the ps4 and picked this one up. I liked the elite 800 but it was just uncomfortable for long gaming sessions. this astro is the best out there for comfort and sound. I have also had the astro a50s gen1 and gen2 and I liked the gen1 but the mic stopped working after a few months and when I returned them to best buy I picked up the gen2 version and the mic picked up a lot of background noise. I have to admit that I was not expecting th a40 tr to do well with out the mod kit because of the other problems I have had with the a50 gen2 , but the went well above my expectations. I also purchased the bops3 mod kit and returned it because it made the headset very uncomfortable just like the tb elite 800, and the new mic was so much bigger than the original one. this headset is the most comfortable I have ever used and the sound quality is second to none and the mic works very well and does not pick up the background noises and everyone in the chat party say that it sounds better than the others. I hope that this review helps others decide because I usually do not write reviews.

Amazing Mixamp + Great Headset Posted by: from: on Pros: Sound Quality, Customization, Amount of Features, No Batteries Con: Cost This mixamp and headset together are the best that you can get for gaming, and I've tried alot including; Astro a40 (2013, 2015) ps gold, turtle beach stealth 500p ,elite 800x and tritton ax pro. The 7.1 SS works so perfect you can hear every direction with no problem pin pointing it . I was taking enemies out through the wall on Rainbow Six Seige before they could even make it to the doorway! The ability to fine tune customize the mixamp equalizer on your computer is awesome. They even have a dedicated forum for it http://forums.astrogaming.com/index.php?forums/mixamp-pro-tr-custom-eq-presets.60/ Just buy this headset you won't be disappointed!

Overall Great Headset Posted by: from: Phenix City, AL on Extremely comfortable. I've own all the high end headsets. My previous Turtlebeach Elite 800 crapped on me so I returned them. (Get warranty!!!!!). The reason I gave them a 4 out of 5; is because for some odd reason after updating the firmware before using them. On the ps3 side of things the chat isn't working, but the PS4 & PC are working flawless. The Astro command center is a great feature even though they delayed it from 12/2013 Astro Gen 1&2. With the new digital mixamp vs the old gen analog version. It definitely sound cleaner and much richer. The sound quality is awesome. Mic quality is great with the exception of the PS3 on day 1. So take that into consideration. Great job Astro but fix the minor kinks.

Number one headset Posted by: from: on This is one of the best PS/PC headsets out there. You get what you pay for and the Astro delivers. The new programmable features of the TR give even more power and flexibility to this great headset. The padded earcups ensure that you can game for hours without discomfort. The closest you will get to 7.1 sound without having to spend bank on 7.1

Close Quarters are required Posted by: from: on I purchased these after reading reviews on Astro, and their high rating. The sound quality is excellent! The soft cushioning on the ear pieces is really nice. Having to plug the mixer into the front and back on my PS4 not so nice. I play on a large screen and typically sit 5-6 feet away from the screen. To use these I have to sit closer, and have cords run all over the place. A buddy tripped over the cord and pulled the PS4 off the table The headphones will plug into the controller, but the sound quality is marginable and the mic doesn't work. I think these would be AWESOME if you sat at a desk and played, but they do not cut it in a big room. Back to cheap earbuds
