Summary: I used the turtle beach x42 for a year now and it was my first virtual surround sound gaming headset and MAN i had an amazing experience with them for my xbox 360 and xbox one. I always been curious why astro gaming headsets are one of the best gaming headset in the market, so i bought the astro a40 at gamestop for about $218.00 after tax because it was on sale.

Summary: I'm giving this 4 stars because the audio is pretty amazing. The microphone on the other is pretty bad. I've been told by my fellow gamers that my voice is staticy. It's a little frustrating to get the levels right for in game voice communication. Mind you, this is after the firmware update. You also cannot hear your voice through the headset regardless of how you mix it. This is something that is strange to me.
Comfort 8/10 These are very comfortable. They grip the head nicely

Summary: Overall, these headphones are fairly priced. They serve their purpose well. However, they don't really standout for the price, so take that into consideration. Comfort 8/10 These are very comfortable. They grip the head nicely, however sometimes when I wear my glasses and these at once, I need to readjust a bit. After that, they are fine.
Summary: I bought this intending to use it with the mixamp I had from a previous pair of Astros. It works fine but the inline mute cable it comes with is about 30" long. This is very annoying as I have to sit impossibly close to my mixamp to make this set up work. Otherwise I'll have to pay an additional 20$ to buy a 2 meter mute cable.
Summary: I want to give it a 3 but I am going with a 4 because I don't have the mix-amp that you're supposed to buy along with these. Therefore, I am probably not getting the most out of them as intended. For the price without the mix-amp they just sound like regular headphones and don't have that high quality omph I'm looking for. Not much bass as I would have expected.
Summary: Overall it is an amazing headset for the price.. Top of the line everything and customer service was great as well (didn't get an xbl chat cable, but they sent one the next day). Max volume could be a little louder and a lot of sound is leaked as they are open back. Mic is a lot better than my last headset (skullcandy gaming series). Mix amp is is probably the key to this headset... The Dolby surround sound helps so much with fps and multimedia consumption.
