    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've ever owned.

    All Static

    I've had Astro headsets for years, my old pair of A40s finally died and I knew I wanted to get this pair as the replacement. I play primarily on Xbox One, but also do some PC gaming, so this made the most sense over the A40s with the M80 adapter. When I plugged everything into the Xbox, first thing I noticed was the static, and I mean a lot of static, it would get progressivly louder as time went on. I tried muliple configurations, including just plugging the 3.5mm jack into the Xbox Controller directly but the static remained. I was also in a Party with other people and they were complaining that the static was coming through the mic as well and blasting their ears. I returned the headset the next day. I'm currently using an old pair of A50s with the terrible AG1 cable for Xbox, hoping to try a different cable in the future. Overall very dissapointed in the quality of this product given the A40's I had for over 5 years.

    Bought this for my son after trying several others. We thought this would be the top of the line ($200) and meet all his needs in gaming. We were wrong .... Took it back in less than a week because of distortion and echo problems. Bought him a $20 headset that he loves. Maybe ours was a bad experience. . Just glad Best Buy allowed the return

    I have to say, these are WONDERFUL and I was not expecting them to react so well. There is something to be said about having an amp in front of your headphones, and an equalizer on top of that. The headphones are crystal clear, block amazingly well, and feel SPECTACULAR. For me, I like to sound check to Ori and Halo 4 (for Xbox). Ori has great orchestral range while hiding low tones that have otherwise caused static on other $100+ pairs. Halo 4 has the beautiful vocals at the intro as well as large explosions and talking AI, to test the headphones for their ability to handle the gambit. The final thing I will mention is that you will have two hefty cords coming from your machine to the amp (optical and micro-usb for power). I, personally, don't mind them because it means a better signal than compressed wi-fi (look it up if you didn't know) necessary to send it through your controller. If you're willing to spend $150, spend the extra $100 and you won't ever look back!
