Summary: bought for ps4. i did the mic test. sounds ok. just dont know how i sound to other in game. the extension is made of plastic, yikes, looks flimsy. i just adjust extension and then tape it to lock it, so i never have to mock around with that or break. other than that, it is 3, not bad, but not blow my mind good. but it is comfortable to wear though... very comfortable. if you gonna get astro, then consider get system that bundle headset and system.
Summary: This headset is absolutely the best one you can get for the price. It works great for anything with a headphone jack. More importantly, it has great 5.1 surround sound to help anyone who needs to game quietly, or wants to just play better.
Summary: Audio and mic is great, but there was something wrong with the left earcup - whenever I put it on it felt itchy and I would have to adjust it. I finally realized the problem - there is something going on with the left earcup, where I am receiving a small electric shock to my cheek. I put some black electrical tape to cover the area I was getting shocked by. Not what I expected to have to do for such an expensive item.
Summary: There's not a worse feeling than joining a skype call or xbox live party to your friends and family and having them immediately laugh at how terrible I sound. Unless you are constantly switching platforms and don't mind a horrible mic this headset isn't for you. I mostly play on PC now and bought a corsair vengeance 1500 v2 for 50 usd less and it is far superior.
Summary: The left side stopped working after the warranty expired. Some of the screws fell out as well. Astro said they could not repair them and suggested we buy a new or refurbished pair. We were kind of hoping for some sort of customer loyalty deal, perhaps a small credit or decent discount? Alas, they were not interested in promoting our business. We are now looking to replace them...but will buy another brand.
Summary: I've had the A30 for at least a year and a half now, and I can say that I am very satisfied with them. I had started off with a Turtle Beach headset (I think the P11), and to be honest they seemed flimsy, and I wasn't too surprised when the sound became distorted a couple of months after I got them. So I decided to get a higher quality headset that would last. That's how I found the Astro headsets.
Summary: The headset suffers from some popping on the Xbox One. This is entirely the fault of the Xbox and not why I marked it down. The cord system on these is so annoying it makes it 4 instead of five stars. There is no way to set these up without having cords constantly in the way. If you own a dog than just don't bother. Aside from those two minor flaws the system sounds amazing I cannot stress enough how much I like them.
Summary: They work well and sound well. Look okay I guess, but what gaming headset does look cool. If I were to choose again I would step up and get the A40s, which I probably will do in the future and you should do if you plan on using just for gaming. Ears start to hurt a little after a few hours of wearing.
