Summary: These headphones in my opinion are the best wireless headphones for gaming on the market (at least from what I've tried). They are definently worth the money. The packaging it comes in is great (I'm into presentation) and you get everything needed to setup right out of the box (XBox will need the...
Great sound quality! Poor build quality... Overall overpriced, find a better alternative!

Summary: Let me start off by saying I don't claim to be an expert in audio, but I have had my share of both gaming-specific and studio-quality headsets over the years and I will use that knowledge and experience to compare to these.
Summary: I am not an audiophile so you can take my review with a grain of salt. So these headsets are the best I've had. I've only had astros and will continue to shop from them because they have helped me get that competitive edge during gaming.
Summary: When I first got this headset, I was overjoyed. The sound quality was really good, it was easy to setup and the headset would last 8+ hours of solid usage. But within a couple of weeks the battery life got shorter and shorter to the point where I had to have it constantly wired to be able to use it.
Summary: For 300$ it's not what you should be getting, then again most gaming headsets are that way, I picked my pair up, the quality is sub-par, and the user has VERY little room to adjust the sound. Go with the G930, its only 100$, and in my opinion is better than these.
Horrible Mic quality ruins an otherwise-perfect headset.

Summary: As has been widely noted, your voice will sound very thin and tinny while speaking through these. The headphones are very comfortable. The audio is great. Surround sounds fantastic, and other people sound very clear. But your voice to them will sound terrible.
A decent headset, but not worth the money. Astro Customer support is awful as well.

Summary: I'll start by saying I did like this headset at first. It's very comfortable, sounded great (aside from what the astro forums believe is a buzz due to the audio gate). I'll start by saying that I was using this on a PC with optical audio and USB for chatting.
Summary: I specifically bought this because of multi-platform and 7.1 Channel support. I find this headset a worthy piece of gaming technology that will serve well for a long time. But for it's price you'd expect a much better mic quality or at least for the manufacturers not to skimp out on the cable...
Pros: I've had this headset over 2 years now and had bought this in 10/31/2013. And to this day I still am using this headset for my computer while gaming, watching movies, listening to music or all at the same time. Here's a list of the pro's on this item: + Very good sound quality and range. Has real...
Cons: Just a few cons that don't really affect the quality of the sound of the product but here are some to list: - Not sure its a con but it fits a little loosely. Often I find it slipping off my head if I look up or down. Fits as long as you don't head bang to your music. In short you won't be able t...
Summary: I love my A40 headset, but I ordered this refurbished and also a brand new HALO edition and both had the right headphone buzzing problem. If you're okay with the right ear emitting a loud buzzing every time the mic picks up noise, these headphones really are the perfect set.
