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 A40 Headset with MixAmp Pro (2015) Review

 

Take your music and gaming audio seriously? You'll want to add the Astro A40 to your shortlist

The majority of the headsets we've reviewed recently have slotted into the £50-100 category but none include an external audio device as capable as the MixAmp Pro either. The latter has its limitations both physically and functionally too but overall...

Astro Gaming A40 TR + MixAmp Pro TR

 

Astro Gaming's A40 TR headset with MixAmp Pro TR is a high-quality wired gaming headset/amp combination that provides a very comfortable fit and excellent audio for a premium price.

Excellent sound quality. Light, sturdy design feels premium. Plenty of audio customization options through the Astro Command app.

Expensive for a wired-only headset. PS4 Slim users need an HDMI splitter.

Bottom Line: Astro Gaming's A40 TR headset with MixAmp Pro TR is a high-quality wired gaming headset/amp combination that provides a very comfortable fit and excellent audio for a premium price.

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 TR plus MixAmp review: A tough sell nowadays, but still a top-notch headset

 

Astro's A40 TR and redesigned MixAmp feel pricier than ever given the current state of the headset market, but great build quality and a bevy of input options might win you over.

MixAmp handles a sizable number of inputs with ease ; Sounds great, albeit much better with EQ ; Microphone is one of the best on the market

Expensive, especially for a wired headset ; MixAmp purchase is borderline essential ; Cable is long and tends to rub against the neck

So, the million (or $250) question: Does the A40 with the MixAmp sound good enough to justify its price? That answer is complicated. The A40 with MixAmp sounds great, definitely one of the better-sounding gaming headset packages. But $250 is steep...
