Summary: The sound is great and the comfort is there, however, the microphone leaves a lot to be desired and there's also no carry pouch. At first, I was reserved due to the large $249.99 asking price, however, Astro has proven to me that their products are certainly worth further investigation.
Conclusion: The majority of the headsets we've reviewed recently have slotted into the £50-100 category but none include an external audio device as capable as the MixAmp Pro either. The latter has its limitations both physically and functionally too but overall it works very well, even if you just use it for...
Conclusion: This is by far one of the easiest conclusions I’ve ever had to write, as there’s simply nothing at fault with the Astro A40 and that is a rare thing indeed.

13 May 2013

I've owned this headset for more than a year and they are really good, if you're looking for a headset that can be used with the xbox, xbox one , ps3, ps4, and...
Summary: The Astro A40's audio is similar to most other headsets in its price range, but it is extremely well designed. You can play for hours and barely notice it's there. Combine that with the many built-in features and you have the best gaming headset for under $400.
Pros: This gaming headset is packed with features and excellent design choices.
Cons: The audio quality is only par for the course.
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...
Pros: Professional grade headset. Superior sound, mic, and ergonomics.
Summary: 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.
