While I absolutely love this headset when its working

Summary: While I absolutely love this headset when its working, it tends to give me troubles... a lot. Apparently, this is a common problem with the model. People in my clan asked if I was using A40's.. and I was like "how'd you know?!". Evidently the crackling and terrible connections are very well known on this model. Wish I had known before I bought it. I've sent it in to Astro for repair after only 1 month. Like I said, they are awesome when they actually work.
Summary: This item was repackaged, not refurbished in any way. I had some obvious signs of heavy use and some cables were tied with rubber bands rather than the factory twist ties. I have no confidence that the product was quality tested or evaluated in any way by the manufacturer. Despite it's heavy use, it is working properly.
Summary: Now this is my personal opinion, but i didnt like the headset at all. The mixamp is great, i bought one separate already but the actual headset was to uncomfortable for me. I didnt like the cloth earpads (made my ears sweaty), the headset was heavy (gave me a headache every time i wore it for more than 30 min) and it was so tight (i felt like my head was slowly getting compressed.
Summary: owned these for about 2 weeks and I just dont get it. I've had several pairs of gaming headphones from razer, Logitech, Plantronics and others. I've received more complaints about my voice quality using these than any other pair. Most of which cost less than half as much as these. Do the head phones sound good? Sure. But not noticeably better than the new razers or Logitechs at half the price.
Headphone arrived Greasy , The wire Between the Mixamp and the headphone is inconsistent

Summary: The dials and knobs for the mixamp is very greasy to the touch probably because astro applied too much lubricant . The cable between the Mix-amp to the headphone is inconsistent , sometimes when you move your head around one side would mute off. i tried playing around with the cable and realise its probably faulty at the connector as i move it from left to right it did cause the sound to cut in and out from the left earcup .
Summary: I give this a two star because I love how everything was packaged and how it looked brand new. The Headset is comfortable but sadly the mix amp game volume doesn't work and the headset mic doesn't work either so now I have to return my astro and buy new ones in the store so I can get ones that are sure gonna work even though the price might be 100 bucks higher for peace of mind
Summary: Had to purchase another cable for just the thing to get audio then had to get a new microphone to put in it complete pain, plus spending 50$ on an adapter for my xbox to work with the headset it was a terrible pain but once I got it it works great.
Summary: At first I love it! It feels comfortable and sounds amazing. But after about 2 weeks of use? My friends told me I didn't sound as loud as i use to be. I tried to change the configurations and people still cant hear me well.
