How long is the cable?
It has a microphone built in too that works when the boom mic is not plugged in. Received this on Monday, tried them out last night. These headphones require charging and being switched on to use certain functionality. I was aware they required charging however was unaware this included if I want to use the play/pause, volume control and mic mute button. Assumed that charging was for the additional EQ feature only! Not bad for the money, build quality seems quite strong and they look better than standard gaming headsets and can be used as standard headphones for pc/phone, they are somewhat heavy, had to take it off after an hour and not great that I have to charge my wired headphones. I'd give it 6/10
Increasingly I am finding that I now pretty much only turn my mic on when some %&*%&* is cheating and I feel I must attack him at once. Imagine if I can't find the mic though, because I detached it, I would be fuming lol. I know it would happen too.
Heat added, had a pair delivered today for occasional Xbox use. Had been looking for an inexpensive pair as my basic turtle beach xl1 don't easily connect to the controller without adapters and a USB power supply. Didn't realise these were amplified and rechargeable, decent enough sound for the price and fit my head ok. Was looking at £50+ based on reviews but these do the job just fine. So happy, I ordered a second pair. Thanks
Astro also has suspect build quality although usually they are good. I say this because I recently had to return my Astro A50's (gen 3 XB1) back to Amazon (used my A40's as a backup meanwhile). I picked them up off the charging base station and to my horror, the ear cup made a clicking sound due to the plastic snapping clean off around the screw thread. The ear cup was hanging on for dear life. They were only 6 months old and I've looked after them too. Luckily for me I've recently had a brand new replacement and sent the old pair back to Amazon, with minimal fuss. Even though they did break I will also recommend them as they sound great, are really comfortable and being properly wireless or wire free is absolutely brilliant. The amount of times I have pulled out the chat cable from a chat adapter or pad (whilst moving or slightly animated) is probably in treble figures. Anyway sorry for rambling on. As for the Lucid Sound LS20 headset it's a pretty good deal at that price.
