13 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Overall the A40 are nothing short of one of the finest headset on the market, although juding by the price tag, marketing and feature set, I think Astro already know this. The headset isn’t new either, it’s been on the market for  a good while and has already proven its self immensely popular with the well-funded end of eSports and enthusiast gaming scene, it would likely be even more popular if it wasn’t such an expensive set, but when it comes to high-end equipment,...

Astro A40 Wired gaming headset review

APC
16 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Out of the box it’s surprising just how comfortable the A40 headset is especially given that its stripped-down utilitarian stylings. There’s plenty of padding exactly where you want it to be and the swivel points on the headset’s arms and cans have enough manoeuvrability to accommodate domes of all shapes and sizes.
  • Pros: Excellent gaming-tuned sound compatible with PC and consoles additional MixAmp connectivity and functions are excellent comes with all requisite cables…
  • Cons: … though we wish they were longer a tad expensive no carry case.

Astro A40BXR 2011 Edition Gaming Headset – PC/Console Hardware Review

Armchair General
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: The other day, as my 12 year old daughter’s tennis lesson was about to start, the tennis pro was approached by a parent who had borrowed a racket. The conversation was open and as the parent received an answer as to the price of the racket, my daughter wondered aloud, “Who would pay $160 for a tennis racket?” The response was fast: serious tennis players. The same rule applies for gamers. I recognize I’m not the average gamer. Further, not all gamers are audiophiles.
  • Pros: Professional grade headset. Superior sound, mic, and ergonomics.
  • Cons: Quality comes at a price.

Astro A40 Gaming Headset and MixAmp Review

18 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Astro Studios is famous among console gamers even if you don't know why. It designed the XBOX 360, but can a bunch of design gurus put together a team to build a gaming headset that is worth $250? We have learned that looking cool and sounding great are two different things in our past reviews.

Astro Gaming A40 Audio System

FiringSquad
6 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Astro Gaming has really put out a nice product with A40 Audio System. The headset does not sacrifice form for function, as it is easily one of the best sounding gaming headsets we’ve come across. It can be fully adjusted to fit just about any head and its surround performance really works to help lose yourself in the game. The headset also works great without the mixamp, although obviously you lose the surround sound capabilities.
