Really enjoying these. Very comfy.
Pricey but you get what you pay for.
my samson sr850's are better. all these so called gaming headsets are a gimmick and way to expensive for the quality.
Everyone always has their budget headphones that are better than the pricey headphones. If some audiophiles got in this article all hell would break loose.
Aren't those just headphones? The A40's can be just headphones, but also have a removable mic. To each his own, but you get what you pay for.
@4LC4PON3 Obviously you have never held, touched or listened to astro a40's. You wouldn't be making that comment if so.
The 7.1 surround sound is frickin awesome on the A40's.
actually i have and for the price they are not that impressive. Way over priced for what they are. The world is clueless on audiophile equipment I just find it funny that people spend this kind of money on an inferior product when you can get way better headsets for the money. @ftwrthtx 7.1 is a gimmick I find it laughable that you really believe that your hearing 7.1 in a headset.
The 7.1 gimmick sure sounds better than the 5.1 gimmick.
Then by all means school me on quality audio. What sennheiser? I have a denon 4311 avr with B&W speakers for my theater room with 2 svs subs. But you're going to school me in audio.
What would you recommend for gaming with a Mic? Genuine question. I have Turtle Beach X31's and they're quite flimsy. They have to be wireless and have a Mic.
