Plug and Use

Robert K., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Summary: I would recommend this headset. I understand that 140 dollars is a lot for ahead set but any headset I can wear for hours and not get uncomfortable after long use I think is worth the money. Plus it really does feel like pillows on my ears.
  • Pros: It was very comfortable and I actually preferred it over my Astro a50 simply because without the charging hassle it was ready to go whenever. Also I don't have this problem but I love that the wire can be discconnected at the headset so you minimize damage incase you get it up in hurry and jerk y...
  • Cons: The wires included that connect to your PC were in poor condition. At first I thought maybe it was something I did but after playing with the wire for a bit I found that the was a loose wire where it connected to the volume control. I wouldn't mention it if not only was it bad on arrival but also...

Could be better

Brandon H., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: Being able to switch the ear that the mic is on is a nice feature.
  • Pros: They are comfortable to wear for short sessions, I do feel fatigue around my ears and on top of my head if I wear them for more than 3 hours. Sound quality is okay, bass is decent. Haven't had any problems with mic quality that I know of. Comes with detachable rubber cable, which I prefer to brai...
  • Cons: Can be uncomfortable to wear these for long periods of time (3+hours). The sound quality could be better as well. Do not offer too much in the way of noise isolation. At $150 I'm not that impressed with the quality of this headset.

Mic Problem

David K., Newegg
20 November 2015
  • Pros: Sounds Great
  • Cons: Mic is horrible quality, its muffled like if a bag was put over it. Cant use 7.1 surround sound unless you have optical cable which isn't a big deal but still a con.

Comfy, good sound quality, but expensive and noise bleeds out easily.

  • Summary: Comfortable and nice sound quality. Friends said the mic sounded like I was "in a huge room" and "tinny." They are really nice, but I ended up going with because the sound isolation is much better. The Astro A40's are a little "open" so people around you can hear the sound from your headphones.

Still the best

Angel W., Newegg
26 September 2015
  • Summary: Make sure you follow the instructions on updating the controller firmware with the headset. It's all included in the packaging. If you don't do it correctly you will get feedback and other audio issues like the first reviewer has.
  • Pros: This is my second set of a40s. These ones come with the new Xbox one adapter built into the cord. Unlike previous a40 sets the cord connects just under one of the ear cups. Still the most comfortable headset I've ever used. Like most headsets it uses software to simulate surround sound. Very high...
  • Cons: The EQ presets are mostly worthless, just different settings prioritizing voice/bass etc.

WARNING DO NOT PURCHASE!

Anonymous, Newegg
24 September 2015
  • Pros: The only pros for this head set is the color selection.
  • Cons: Mic did not work, hollow sound from headset (when it wanted to work), the cloth around the cans feels horrible, I might as well put a bunch of cotton swabs together to make the cloth because that's about how it felt. in line mic would not shut off no matter which position the slider was in.
