Also the same price at Amazon and a few other retailers but a welcomed drop from 230-250.

How do these compare to the A40s as of old in terms of audio quality?

Maetras

Yeah they’re definitely comfy. I was actually going to get the steelseries arctis pro but there were so many people saying that they broke within the year. The build quality on these seems to be good so far. I do prefer faux leather ear cups though. PS I recommend getting some custom EQs from online like the Zalias ones if you haven’t already. After applying the presets, the headset sounds even better.

It doesn’t but the like for like comparison between headsets were still of noticeably different quality. I tried Hyper X Alpha, Astro A40, Sennheiser zero and Sennheiser gsp 500. A40 and Zeros were both very comfortable but had comparatively poorer audio in soundstage and imaging. The Alphas had very good audio and it was easy to precisely pinpoint footsteps and the rest but were so uncomfortable I couldn’t wear them for much longer than 30 minutes without literally experiencing pain in my ears. The mic was also faulty. The gsp 500 has great sound and is sufficiently comfortable so I kept that. Gsp 500 does have a far too strong clamp force though so expect to have to wear them in for a bit.

That’s because PUBG doesn’t support Dolby. When playing PUBG any headphones can be used, even standard phone earphones. However, playing games like CoD will be insanely different.

comshoplesce

any good?

MK_Nath

I have the Arctis Pro + GameDAC and they are so bloody comfortable! Was only using the PS Gold before that, so can't compare to Astro. But I can confirm that Steelseries are really decent.

adam_rockon

Philips Fidelio X2 on sale with vmoda mic, at higher price points though could be anything. Not knocking the astros. Ive had them before and they are incredibly light but in terms of sound and versatility there better out there.

llamaalarmallama

There's generally quite a bit at this price range that is just flat out better. The astro's tend to be marketed as utterly world beating when... they're just... good. It tends to be "just good" at "UTTERLY WORLD BEATING/YOU WON'T FIND BETTER!" price. For this sort of money, there's headphone+mic combo's that'll wipe the floor with this (and still be tidy). There's headset options from sennheiser that are better for the money too.

Solado

This deal is for the headset only.

mminghella

These don't come with the mixamp?

Azwipe

Yes they sound amazing even with a PS4 controller, the open back design gives a wide soundstage so it's easy to detect where sounds are coming from.

khodos

Hello, could you elaborate? Do you recommend the senns based in sound quality?

The gen 3's didn't have chrome so never had the issue but I can see it with these. If you can find a good deal on those then you can always go for them if scratching is a worry. In terms of quality the changes are ver very minimal and you'd hardly notice other than the redesigned mixamp. The gen3 is also a little more neutral in its colour scheme.

3anana

I've got the Gen 3 which isn't much different. Comfort is great, mic is fairly decent for a gaming headset and sound quality is pretty good too. It is a little pricey but you're also paying for the mixamp which is pretty neat.

This set is the Halo 5 edition, goes very nicely with the Halo themed Xbox One. The included Mixamp M80 actually helps produce some pretty decent sound, considering it's just a plug in for the controller. But if you want virtual surround sound you'll be needing one of the Mixamp Pro versions. Seems a decent price, voted hot.

I tried a mixamp, which I picked up off of avforums, with my superlux headphones. I have to say for the amount of cables everywhere, coupled with the background hiss of the amp, I fail to see the appeal of these units at all. The audio improvement just isn't significant enough IMO. Unless I'm missing something?

i dunno if you just havent been keeping up or just follow the general consensus that they are crap but you can get 7.1 headsets, for example the Strix has 5 drivers per ear and is highly reviewed. https://www.asus.com/uk/Headphones-Headsets/STRIX_71/ Frankly it comes Down to price, but nowadays true 7.1 is more than viable and there are some great sounding true 7.1 headsets. As always. High end> low end

minicale

You don't get actual 7.1 surround headsets they can't fit the speakers inside properly and with true 5.1 surround headsets the speakers suffer because of the small size they have to be to fit in the earcup. I'd take a pair of good stereo headphones over surround sound headphones, I have had multiple and after swapping for surround to stereo I wouldn't go back the sound is much more natural and detailed.

catbeans

Thats not right at all, virtual surround sound, is 2.0 and has post processing to simulate surround sound and distance (only 2 drivers), however it is still stereo and hard to judge distance/direction. "Actual" 7.1 headsets have multiple drivers (alot of the time 5.1 plus virtual processing) and though drivers are close a good quality pair do not sound tinny and youcab actually judge direction pretty well.

minicale

​7.1 Surround sound is all simulated in headphones, it just makes the audio sound tinny

rebornadd

I got a perfectly working pair of these with the mix amp for 70 quid on eBay. or you could just eBay a mix amp pro buy a really good pair of headphones and a MOD mic and you have a much better sound and experience than with the astros

​I think they are too heavy and for long gaming sessions they are uncomfortable.. I'd try different personally

The_Hoff

Reading the feedback on the Astro's it seems they're woefully incapable of addressing the issue and seem to be lacking in after sales. No direct experience of mine, but it's worth noting. If anybody is unaware of headphones amps/dac's, here's an recent article which might draw attention to them: http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/5/26/11783296/audioquest-dragonfly-dacmagic-xs-usb-dac-review I have an audioquest which travels with me to the office, and I use my HyperX USB sound card on my PC. It will transform even a mediocre set of headphones through an average source, well worth investing in.

delahmed

+1 I bought mine on day one from Kingston stall for £72. I'm sure a friend bought these for £40 on amazon black friday a few months later. FYI - My mic stopped working on Win 10 suddenly, called up RMA (which is based in SW london), they sent me free mic boom and once that did not fix the issue, they asked me to send the headset back with soundcard (I kept my boom mics and 2 sets of ear muffs and the nice box), next day a brand new one arrives. Didnt even need a receipt. Very tempted to buy Kingston stuff now (SSDs most likely next) as RMA was london based. Never used Astros but if anyone is on the fence, get Cloud II's - no brainer....

The_Hoff

If you want a decent headphone amp (who really needs levels and a DSP?) get an Audioquest Dragonfly Black for £90, you can use this portably with a smart phone too so has the benefit of mobility whether at home or not.
