ASTRO Gaming A40 TR Wired PC Headset : Microphone on the headset sucks

Amazing headset wish to have the mix amp but very good quality and is super comfortable i personally say their better than my razers.

Headset is alright but the microphone sucks.

Comfortable with great sound quality.

Amazing for gaming use it for counter strike and i am also a big audio head and love these cans for music use as well 5/5.

Confused about the negative reviews as i have had mine for years, and they sound fantastic for gaming. The build quality is great, mine have took a real beating and are still going strong. The cables are detachable so are easily replaced if damaged, and the same goes for the microphone. I have owned hyper xcloud ii, high end turtle beach, astro a50s astro a40s and astro a40 tr, and hands down these are the best overall. They sound better than the others i have owned (in my opinion) as the treble, mids and bass are very well balanced, and the sound detail is really really good. Sure you could buy an expensive pair of music headphones which might have better drivers, and be better sounding, but you’d pay more and probably not have a good quality microphone attached to them. When it comes to gaming headsets you won’t find much better, and you can pick them up extremely cheap second hand.

Great headset but not as displayed; be carefull. This is a full black, pc version, does not include the xbox plugin as displayed on the picture, nor does it have the blue trim. Dissapointing that this product is not displayed correctly. Had to buy a seperate microsoft xbox controller plugin to use this headset.

Perfect apart from the weight which you soon forget after a while.

Very nice headphones i like it. Excellent microphone (no static) and good sound. The headphones are very soft and comfortable for hours of gaminghighly recommend for anyone.

Quick delivery and one of the best quality and comfort headsets i’ve used for my xbox.

Excellent piece of kit, i would only recommend audio technika or sennheiser over these if you have the money, but the surround sound on these guys is awesome. The only gripe i have is the mic, it’s not the best mic in the world and doesn’t provide 100% clear speech all the time, but apart from that, the headset is great, super comfy and lightweight too. I would recommend this for console gamers or pc gamers who are looking for their first decent headset without sleeving an absolute fortune.

A few months back i decided i really wanted a gaming headset – i’d started to play online with friends and i found my basic desktop microphone to be annoying, and my music headphones (ultrasone hfi 580) to be far too uncomfortable after more than an hour. I wasn’t too fussy about how much they cost, but i wanted them to perform in all areas. To jump the gun a bit, i ended up trying out the hyperx cloud ii, razer krakken 7. 1 chroma, and the astro a40 + mixamp. If you’re in a similar situation to me where you are debating similar choices, i’ll give a mention for all of theseastro a40 + mixampafter being unhappy with the 2 other pairs mentioned for one reason or another (see below), i decided to go all out and try the a40s. There are a few options for top-end gaming headsets, and the added option of going wireless. I shied away from wireless since there are quite a few reviews complaining about buzzing, which is something i can do without, and wires aren’t too much of an issue for me. While the a40 headset in itself isn’t that expensive (~£140), i opted to go for the mixamp as well. I can tell you that, as you’d expect, these were by far the best pair in comparison to the others. Build quality is excellent – metal and sturdy – but are much heavier than the other sets.

I bought this product a while ago and so far works great however there was a slight problem. The box it came in said pc on the front and i am unable to use chat features of the headset. I now use them just for game sound and have separate earphones for chat however it was slightly annoying. I’ve been told that the mixamp will enable me to use party chat and i am planning on buying one however still find it strange that a pc edition arrives when it clearly states xbox one in the product name 🎧🎧.

My 12 year old son says these are the best headset he’s ever had.

Best headset to buy for the xbox one can’t go wrong.

Didn’t buy, won via a competition. Have been using for 10 months and its one of the best headsets i’ve ever owned. Comfortable, just the right weight, microphone can be detached and plugged in on either side. Reason i even wanted to write the review though is customer support. After 10 months, the volume controller on the cable started behaving badly. Since i won the headset through a competition, i had no purchase receipt. Astro support team still sent me a replacement, free of charge, even after i offered to pay. I want to see another company offer free replacements when they don’t have to and get money thrown at them.

Christmas presents so not sure what they are like but look really nice.

Perfect headset this is my second pair as mine broke in transit moving to new home i couldnt go to anything different just make sure you get the mix amp with it aswell as that allows more customisation but honestly best headset you could own.

They look pretty much how they do in the pictures apart from they don’t look as cheap in person. My problem lies with the size and overall look, when i tried them on i felt very silly wearing them, i wasn’t expecting them to be so big, even though they are not uncomfortable they just look very odd. Also i can not hear anything else in the room when i am wearing these which can be slightly annoying when talking on mic or streaming. I’m already thinking about returning these and going with a different brand.
