    I've had the Astro a50s which are wireless and the hassle of charging the battery was not worth it for me. These are great!

    A50s are garbage they don't hold a charge and I could go on. Go with the a40s with mix amp80 or the a40 TR much better the sound is great you don't have to worry about charging and way more comfortable than the a50s. A40s with mix amp 80 and the a40 tr you can change out the mic and so on and customize it a bit we're you can't with the a50s. I like the a40 tr over the mix amp80 cause of the 7.2 surround sound.

    I absolutely love this headset. I owned the wireless before this pair but hated having the charge them. So I gave these a try and can't Game with out them. Easy set up as use and well worth the money. I just wish they were a different color.

    The Astro A40TR for the Xbox is awesome!!! This is THE best wired headset. Yes, wireless is nice and all; but over time, batteries tend to show it's age by not holding its charge. Yes you can plug and play most wireless headsets, but the battery in the headset tends to get hot while charging....emitting radiation that can cause headaches. Save yourself the "headaches" and pick up the Astro A40TR's. Comfortable for hours and hours of play with no worries of losing sound in the middle of a match. I've had the Turtle Beach Ear Force Delta, but there was no rechargeable battery pack. It ate batteries on the regular and the ear cups eventually started deteriorating. Then I picked up the Triton Warheads; which were amazing. Interchangeable battery packs were awesome and it was completely wireless. Sound started cutting out in one ear and replaced it with the old A50 (Battlefield Edition). Battery eventually wouldn't hold its charge and the "play and charge" option was cool and all; but it literally gave me headaches from the heat. Picked up the A40TR's and never looked back. Hard wired is the way to go. It's worth the money....now my son and I've our own. Highly recommended.

    Best Headset Money Can Buy

    I have tried many different headsets over the years, but this one is by far the best. This is the multi purpose swiss army knife of headsets. From the ability to change sound settings, to being able to just pump all audio and sound into them(great for late night video game sessions). Adjustable and customizable by using mod kits, or by ordering custom speaker tags. I thought the mix-amp and cords would be cumbersome and in the way, but surprisingly they are not. I would have went with the wireless Astro Headset, but I have heard about them losing a charge too quick, and having to plug them into your controller. They are pricey, but worth every penny. I highly recommend.
