Summary: I play a ton of video games so I've owned a couple of different gaming headset over the years. Since I prefer wired over wireless, the cords in my headset always go first. I was so happy to find that the cable for this can easily be replaced. The whole headset offers customization.
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.
Summary: Best. Headset. Ever. This is my second A40 the first was killed in an unfortunate cord tripping accident. RIP This headset is for gaming however, it also sounds great for music and especially movies. Expensive but worth it. Highly recommend.
Summary: Just picked up the 2015 astro a40 dark grey. Just decided to replace my astro a40 from 2009 wcich has used for 6 years mainly for CS:S and CS:GO but also used a handful of times on Xbox 360. Had no issues with my old Astros just wanted a new color scheme.
