Astro Gaming A40 TR + MixAmp Pro TR

 

Astro Gaming's pricey A40 TR + MixAmp Pro TR wired gaming headset is packed with features designed for serious competitive players, including a separate amp/mixer for controlling your audio levels.

Solid design and build. Good sound quality. Custom art options available. MixAmp Pro TR puts plenty of physical controls within reach.

Very expensive, especially for a wired headset. Surround sound isn't effective in a headset.

Conclusions Astro Gaming's latest version of the A40 headset is unsurprisingly excellent. It's also unsurprisingly pricey. Still, it's a testament to Astro's design and engineering that the A40 TR stands as a rock-solid gaming headset aimed at serious...

Astro A40 Wireless System review: Astro A40 Wireless System

 

Astro A40 Wireless System

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.

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.

Review: Astro Gaming A40 Audio Gaming System

 

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

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

Astro A40 + MixAmp Pro Headset Review: Great Sound Meets Great Customization

 

The A40 + MixAmp is a very expensive audio setup. It doesn't work that well for living room configurations, and the sound quality without the amp is variable. Nonetheless, I enjoyed every minute I spent gaming with the device.

Excellent sound ; Intuitive amp ; Comfortable fit ; Good for both PC and consoles

Not great for living room setups ; Expensive

Pick up the Astro A40 + MixAmp if you want to do some serious gaming or streaming from a desk setup. If you game primarily in the living room, though, you may want a wireless option instead.

Astro A40 TR X-Edition Gaming Headset Review: 10 Years of Quality

 

When you consider that the A40 TR has basically not changed in the past 10 years, it's remarkable how well the headset has held up. It still sounds great, looks great and works with just about any system effortlessly. At the same time, it's missed out...

Excellent in-game sound ; Generally comfortable fit ; Works with any platform

So-so music performance ; No inline volume controls ; Expensive

The Astro A40 TR gaming headset is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" incarnate, and there's a lot about the device that simply ain't broke.

Astro A40 MixAmp M80

 

I've tried many gaming headsets in my time, but never actually had a chance to get my hands (or head) on a pair of Astro A40s. Well-known for being one of the top headsets on the market, I opened up my first pair with high hopes for the Xbox One and PC...

Durable, comfortable design ; Excellent sound quality ; MixAmp M80 is a perfect addition

Fairly expensive ; No surround sound

The Astro A40 is a perfect headset for whatever you use your Xbox One for. It's not too expensive, and the appeal of the MixAmp M80 just adds to its excellent audio capabilities.

Astro's latest A40 headset lets you customise your gaming cans (hands-on)

 

Astro's range of gaming headsets has always been well regarded: back in 2012 I was blown away by the Astro A50 series, while one year earlier my colleague Jeff Bakalar called the A40 series "one of the best virtual surround-sound gaming headset systems...

It's early days, but so far the Astro A40 TR headset is wowing me just as much as the A50 did -- maybe even a little more. I'll be testing it further on the PS4 and updating this hands-on first take in the near future.
