When it came time to purchase a new headset, (I’d been degraded to using iPod earbuds and a desktop mic I found in our basement, possibly from ’95), I asked around my circle of gamer friends for suggestions. The Astro Gaming A40 Audio System caught my attention. I’m primarily a PC gamer, but I do enjoy console gaming as well. The idea that I could use the same headset for my PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, not to mention a standard headphone jack for my iPod, was exciting to me.
