Summary: We spent three weeks with Astro's A40 Gaming Headset and MixAmp products and had a very good overall experience. We like that a gamer can buy Astro Gaming's complete A40 system and use it on the PS3, XBox 360, and PC.
We especially like the ingenious versatility of the company's MixAmp. The MixAmp was called, "A Swiss Army knife of connectivity" by a veteran user of Astro's products in the Astro Gaming support forum. That description certainly fits the product.
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. Can Astro pull it off?
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.
Summary: Si vous cherchez un casque de PGM, et que vous en avez les moyens, vous pouvez acheter un A40 avec mixamp 5.8 sans problème. Il existe bien une version avec fil, soit mixamp tout court. Il est certain que l’A40 est l’un des tous meilleurs casques de jeu. Sur une utilisation audiophile, il n’est peut être pas la panacée, mais dans COD7, au hasard, l’immersion est excellente, le rendu des voix parfait, les bruits de l’environnement puissants et spatialisés.
