Summary: Pros: Pass through audio plays PC audio through headset, helping to un-muffle your PC sounds (I love this). Also cloth ear pieces are super comfortable. My suggestion is to find these features somewhere else. Cons: First set came with a very loud hiss or whine in the right earpiece.

Summary: These were good at first but started to turn off and back on every 10 - 15 minutes. Astro told me to send them back for warranty which wasn't a problem. The headset they sent back a few days later has chat and no game volume. Astro hasn't responded to my issue that I'm having now.
Summary: I've had this headset for less than 5 months and the mini USB connector that provides power to the base fell off its circuit board. I also frequently had issues with being unable to turn the headset off, thereby running the battery out when not in use, even though I kept the firmware and software up...
Summary: have owned the headset for 4 months... about once a month when left over night to charge. i will come back to the headset being fully charge but they refuse to transmit audio.... have to wait for battery to die in order to re connect. what a gun way to kill a day of gaming.
