Astro A40Headphone

 

Meet the Astro A40s, a high-end headset that is compatible with just about everything under the sun with a headphone jack. While they are quite pricy, you definitely get what you pay for, as the A40s are a well-performing, solid headset with a dizzying...

Very comfortable ; Angled drivers ; Solid design

Cumbersome cord

Certainly impressive, certainly expensive.

Astro A40 Wireless System

 

While a bit pricey, the Astro A40 Wireless System is easily one of the best virtual surround-sound gaming headset systems we've ever tested.

Great 5.1 to 7.1 surround simulation; fairly easy to set up; comfortable and lightweight headset; wireless audio transmission; completely adjustable/removable boom mic; customizable volume levels; optical in/out; can work with any headphones

Pricey; not exactly fully wireless; some items sold separately; no direct solution for multiple console connections

Frag Freely Without Waking the Neighbors

 

If you frequent LAN parties, or an ill-tempered roommate / significant other/ downstairs neighbor disapproves of muzzle fire thundering from your speakers at 4

Comfort, for multiple head and hair sizes. Clear voice quality is a plus for smack-talking. Connectivity options to complement most setups

PC gamers won’t mind, but wireless La-Z-Boy warriors probably don’t want to be tethered to their audio system. Add every component up and you've got an expensive setup on your hands

If you're looking for a headset that can work with just about anything you can play games on, the A40s are worth looking at.

Very comfortable.; Angled drivers.; Solid design

Cumbersome cord

At the end of the day, what you get with the Astro A40s is certainly very impressive, if you’re looking for a headset that can work with just about anything you can play games on. While it is very pricy compared to some of the lower-end headsets, you...

Astro A40

 

The fact that the ASTRO A40 is an award-winner and the officially licensed PC gaming headset of the MLG says a lot. However, nothing compares to actually using one. The audio is superior to most other headsets in the same price range, and the design is...

ASTRO listens to their pro players and has been continuously adding requested features

The mic is very sensitive, so you'll need to be careful not to overpower your listeners

This is a well-designed PC gaming headset and is highly recommended by professional gamers.

Product Specifications

The Astro A40 Headset combines audiophile-grade sound and crystal-clear voice communication with the most user-configurable headset on the planet. In addition to the A40 Headset's removable speaker tags, you'll find a completely user-configurable microphone boom. It attaches to either side - or removes completely for solo gaming and music sessions. The A40 Headset comes with a quick-disconnect cable and multiple ends: an A40 MixAmp cable, and a standard dual-jack PC connector with in-line volume and mute control. It is an excellent standalone headset, but even works better when teamed with the A40 MixAmp.
