ASTRO Gaming MixAmp Pro TR : Great little bit of kit

I bought this to use with my xbox but its not great for it. If you want to configure it you have to plug it into your pc. Which is fine but it means you are making changes to settings that you cannot really test live (assuming you don’t have games on your computer. When you configure something you want to try it with actual scenarios you will use it for, right). This makes it a chore to setup. When plugged into the xbox there is often a low level buzz which is annoying. I was hoping i could use this to record party chat and my voice chat as a separate channel to the game audio but i couldn’t do it. I used it about 3 times now its just sitting in a box.

Sound works but no mic comes in evin tho i can hear my self pc is the same.

Great design and audio quality.

Great little bit of kit, have used astros for 5 years and the mixamp is definetly worth the money. The intergration with xbox one is really nice as the xbox picks it up as a headset device just from the usb (rather than having to have a cable to the controller). Note: if you are buying this for a console, white is for xbox one, black is for ps4. They aren’t cross compatible.

I’m using it with the hyperx alpha headset and they’re 10 times better than being plugged into the controller. Only thing i’d advise is finding different eq present settings as the ones it comes with aren’t great.

Best mix amp to buy for the xbox one.

Works a treat for xbox and pc.

Granted the a40 headset isn’t great – hence i’m using just the mixamp. But when paired with my sennheiser g4me one, it is unbeatable. Finally get audiophile grade sound on your xbox and it works perfectly. Also loving the fact i don’t have any cables going into my controller anymore. Any questions about the setup just ask. I also have tried with the kingston hyperx cloud ii, sennheiser hd600, bose ae2, creative auravana. Sennheiser game one, open acoustic gaming headset – black is the best option to give you the highest quality of audio for your xbox one. Granted there are better soundcards for the pc, such as the creative sound blaster e5.
