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.

Need Dolby Digital Live to use this headset.

Vadim I., Newegg

  • Summary: I tried everything but my corsair vengeance still get better sound and mic quality then this headset. Astro needs to advertise correctly on the product that it requires DDL since not many motherboards actually support it.
  • Pros: Great sound quality Lightweight and durable Very comfortable to wear
  • Cons: Terrible mic quality and sensitivity If you dont have a sound card with DDL support or a mobo then you wont be able to enjoy this headset to the max. I have the mix amp as well and I dont want to spend additional 50-90 dollars for a soundcard.

Bad Quality

Caleb C., Newegg
15 June 2015
  • Summary: the headset does feel comfortable, and can be left on for extended use, but with the amount of cons that my headset has, whether they all have them or i just happen to be an unlucky person and got a headset that was built poorly, its worth looking into other headsets.
  • Pros: The headset works.
  • Cons: Their is constant feedback, there are occasional loud static popping sounds, the mic doesn't play back my own voice (so i have to yell to hear myself), the headset only supports stereo on Xbox One (5.1 and 7.1 are not supported). Also, would be nice if you could disconnect the cable from the m80 ...

Sound quality is bad! get these with the mix amp!

James, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: First thing that I have to say is that all these reviews are by people who bough the headphones with the mix amp. I bought the a40's without the mix amp, and I sent it back after 5 minutes of listing to it, mainly is because the headphones distort if you don't have the mix amp, there is no bass what...

The headphones were great. Audio

max, Amazon
2 November 2014
  • Summary: The headphones were great. Audio, quality, and comfortable. Now I list this as one star because their customer service is garbage. Also that replacement parts are almost impossible to get, basically rendering my headphones useless.
