Seems decent enough at less than half rrp for the headset and mix amp.

Sporadic stock as with anything Argos of course.

Awesome headset and mix amp, bought mine in the olden days on black ops 1 and it's still going strong.
Well worth this price

Stock available in Bangor and Newtownards

Quick question for those in the know. I want to use these cross format ps4 and xbox one. I'm aware you need a connector for the xb1. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the connections required?

You'll need one of these:
shopto.net/vid…A8w

Although at nearly 18 quid you might just want to consider buying a whole new controller with the 3.5mm jack socket built-in.

I am not 100% sure but i think you would need a splitter cable attached to xbox1 controller(1 sound 1 microphone) connect headphone to mic on controller splitter cable and a seperate cable from audio splitter to amp. I think.!!! With the new xbox 1 controller, no additional hardware is required as there is a 3.5mm socket(trrs) socket on controller.(trrs tip,ring,ring and screen.)

Thanks for the responses. I might as well go all out and get the new controller and save messing around.

Oh I see, so if I get a new controller and plug it straight in I can't use the mix amp? Did I get that right? Don't really want the mix amp to be an ornament lol.

Forgive my ignorance but how does it compare with the A40 with Mixamp M80 at £10 more?

I'd spend at least £10 in diesel getting to my nearest argos with this in stock whereas the other one is in stock nearby

Thats a nice price got mine from argos ebay for £76.60 in January (Grade B) absolutely nothing wrong with them and really pleased with them.

​M80 mix amp is stereo, mixamp pro is 7.1 surround.

used mine for a year or so on pc and ps4 paid well over the odds and very disappointed with them to be honest

Sorry to hear that. Given you paid over the odds, would you say they were at least worth the £89.99 here? Good to have a critical pov!

​I have these very good headset, but there is a problem with mic quality on the ps4 it's very bad with no fix unless you buy/use a separate mic xbox one I can't comment on

Wow that bad. Well I'm sure I'll cope. My ps4 is mainly for the exclusives and some jrpgs.

This isnt worth it for xbox1 tbh, you are better off waiting for a deal on the A40TR or Xbox one specific Astros that connect via the Xbox for 7.1.
Edited by: "catbeans" 19th Sep 2016

I've never had a problem with the mic on my A40s. Great headset, I'm terrible playing FPSs without it (not much better with it tbh).

I have the A50 and they're awesome.

used them for a while and was not disappointed. but now i got a50 and they are just epic!

Shame they can't be found anywhere near me. Wouldn't mind upgrading my old headset. Live chat isn't really a big help finding stock. They said "it's out of stock everywhere".

Finally a great deal that has stock at my local! Reserved. Thanks OP, heat added!

to use these on Xbox one all you need is 2.5mm to 3.5mm chat cable if you have the newer controller with 3.5mn jack. if you have the older controller you need the Xbox stereo chat adaptor.
you can also just use this headset direct into controller without mixamp.

None near Reading but a great price if you can find them

Just picked mine up. Quite impressed with the build quality to be fair. Thought it was going to be flimsy.

How do these compare with A50s? There's new A50s coming out in October but obviosly they are £250 which is a bit steep considering I could get the new PS4 for less haha

none in stock in liverpool, joke!

one reserved dpk argos

I have these. They're great.

Its not the greatest headset but for £90 it is a really good buy especially with the amp included.

Sorry mate got the last one at Formby

I love the amp that came with these. Basically everything about this headset spoke of quality even the cables were something else compared with brands like Logitech etc. Unfortunately I had to sell these as the clutter of cables was just too much to bare in my living room and I went back to using my old wireless Sony Pulse headset which is worse in every way but has no cables. I don't recommend using these in your living room unless you live on your own. It's a hot price though of course!

It's obvious this reduction is due to the redesigned PS4 (slim) not having an optical out port.

I kind of want to say yes that'll be why but then Argos mess up too much to have such foresight. PS4 slim is a bit pointless really.

Junk.

Get the HyperX Cloud II instead.
