    I've only had this for 2 days but I'm loving it. The headset is light and quite comfortable. I have not had the chance to test out the mic yet. Hopefully I will not encounter the problems that other people have. The sound quality is superb, lots of oomph. I love the MixAmp Pro TR with all the customizations and presets that can be loaded on it, plus having the volume and other knobs next to me is better, I can see what I'm adjusting.

    Best gaming headset for the money. Offers superb quality and comfort, very easy to set up and break down. I had owned a pair of A40s for about 5 years and needed to upgrade (only because I stood on the cable connecting the headset to the mix amp and that caused the microphone to wig out) so another pair of A40s was the logical choice. Their sound quality and comfort has increased since my initial purchase years ago.

    Bought this headset not knowing that it's wired to the xbox not the controller.returned and bought a40 with mix amp m80. Before returning this headset I did play a game or 2 and the sound of this headset is amazing. Ive owned 4 or 5 sets of turtle beach headsets and a40s feel more comfortable on my my head after long gaming sessions. So if having wires strung across the room isn't an option then buy the astro a40s with mix amp m80.

    I absolutely love these headphones, I had turtle beach XP400's and I didn't know how much I was missing when it came to sound. The A40 TR headset is beyond anything I have used as a headset. The only thing I had trouble with was downloading the firmware for the mix amp because the link on the website is broken unless you use a certain browser. Overall, it's worth the money, LOVE THESE.

    Amazing comfort, unfortunately cumbersome

    I have spent many hours demoing the higher end console headsets available at this point in time. These Astros are by far the most comfortable available. Great functionality and decent EQ customization options available via the Astro desktop app. Unfortunately the numerous wires, hardware, etc., become too much of a hassle for me after a day or so. The wireless version would be the way to go for sure, but at a hefty price tag.

    I have purchased and returned many headsets. Some were ok but most didnt cut it. I did have the a50's and dont get me wrong solid headset. Only issue is the sound kept crackling after a bit. Think because they are wireless and gets interrupted by other signals. But after getting these there is no other. Sound is so clear. Bass is crisp and not too overwhelming. Little pricey but definitely worth it.

    Best Astro A40 Headset Yet

    I;ve owned 5 Astro A40 headsets as well as 3 Astro A50s. This is without a doubt the best Astro A40 headset yet. The best part is that with the new MixAmp Pro, you only need one cable for surround sound connecting the headset to the MixAmp. With previous iterations you needed one cable from headset to MixAmp Pro, then another from the MixAmp to the controller.

    Instant annoying static

    Bought a set of the a40tr two days ago updated the firmware like recommended then hooked them up to my Xbox one x and got nothing but static. The worst static I’ve ever heard. Spent $200 on what was supposed to be one of the best headsets around and was the worst. Not one of the worst headsets I’ve owned but it WAS the worst I have ever owned.

    I bought the Astros A40's TR + Mix-Amp Pro PC/Xbox One to replace the Logitech's G633. Let me tell you that was a great decision! The headphones are very comfortable and I like the fact you can mess with the EQ settings on the Mix-Amp and save the settings for what ever your wanting it off the amp. I have one seeing where if a Grenade or bomb goes off next to me and if I don't see it it makes me jump, Lol

    I have always been a turtle beach guy since I been gaming call of duty competitively since 2008. I took a 4-5 year break and just recently got back into competitive gaming and these had just came out and gave them a try...amazing sound quality, very easy setup, and their fully customizable what more could you want

    Great Headphones for Gaming and Entertainment

    I use these for a blend of gaming and entertainment (movies/ music) and love them! They perform twice as well as my previous pair (Astro A40). The cups are very soft and can be worn for hours on end. The sound quality is superior to most other headphones I've experienced. The one slight negative is that the cable that connects the headphones to the Mixamp is a bit short, but it's manageable.

    I was in the market for a new headset and did a lot of research. There are always a lot of great headsets to choose from but by far these are the best ones I’ve owned. Great sound and super comfortable the mix amp is perfect for partying up with friends and being able to hear the game and chat just the way you want

    The headset sounds great and is super comfortable, I can wear it during long gaming sessions without any discomfort. Only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is the instructions for set up aren’t very clear, I had to watch some videos and do some troubleshooting to get it set up. I also have to switch in and out of PC mode for the Xbox to pick it up every time I turn the Xbox on.

    - Simplified setup from previous models (2 less wires, and audio is through Usb) - Audio quality is great and no static issues such as from charging a controller or interference - Padding is comfortable and makes the headset easier to wear for extended sessions - Decent preset sound mixes for quick audio adjusment Recommended for Gamers that want to really push audio and gaming quality to this next .

    Works for Xbox, not so much on PC

    Works just fine for Xbox, but for Windows, it is a whole different story. Every 15 minutes the headset will lose all sound, requiring the user to remove the USB cable and replug it in. I've tried downloading all the software and updating it, and it still happens. I would strongly recommend against this headset if you are planning to use this for PC.

    Good headset but pricey

    This a good headset with great audio quality. The surround sound is amazing. I'm giving it 4 stars because chatting sucks with not being able to hear yourself enough, so I'm constantly shouting into the mic. There is the software side to increase the "sidetone" to hear yourself better but it didn't help much. Other then that it's great quality headset just a tad pricey in my opinion.

    This headset is the best headset I have ever had for gaming and it will probably stay that way. There were no problems, even tho I expected more from the Mic but overall it is worth the money to buy this headset. I started YouTube and started streaming(Twitch:realdiegolopez)(Youtube:DiAYEgo) and it works fantastic I love the headset!!

    I ended up going with the Turtle Beach Elite Pro after using both. Nothing against the A40TR, they are great. I just felt the Elites were a little better in overall sound quality (Astro's sound would probably have been better with the closed, rather than open back but an additional $60 was a bit too steep) and comfort. Regardless, you can't go wrong with these.

    The sound is awesome however these were returned for the Astro A40 in blue without the mixamp. Although very similar the extras you get with this set were nothing but a problem. My son spent a few hours trying to get them to work. The blue A40s were out of stock in the store however available online. Once he got a hold of the A40s we knew it wasn't him. Best Buy was great with the return.

    Tried the Turtle Beach XO ONE's and then the Stealth 420x's before these. What can I say other than these are the most comfortable and best sounding headsets I have ever used. The only negative is all the cords but I can totally live with that since these headsets fit perfectly and sound great. I'm 12-13 feet away from my Xbox one and I still have just a tad more cord length than needed.
