5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing surround sound experience August 18, 2011
Color Name:White|Edition:New
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am very happy to say that my extremely stylish white Astro A40 2011 audio system arrived recently and after much time pouring over it, I can safely say that it was worth every penny I spent. I noticed no one has reviewed the white ones, which I will now remedy. My wife and I live in a smaller-medium sized house divided into three apartment sized living spaces. I'm surrounded on two sides by in-law relatives. It's not a very soundproof house, and I sometimes suffer from insomnia or just want to play a game really loud. Until now, I've always had to turn the sound way down and could hardly hear anything. I've also never lived somewhere, ever, with an up-to-date surround sound, high fidelity sound system. Well, I decided I was through with that and so my wife and I got this package. It may be my best entertainment-related choice all year (at least tied with the PS3 I bought in Spring).

Immediately grabbing is the presentation of the A40s, even starting as early as the very slick, stellar packaging that is very reminiscent of an apple product. It's an impressive, clean introduction to Astro as a company. The Mixamp itself really has a retro-futuristic vibe to it and is very enjoyable to look at. In fact, the Mixamp's gorgeously simple design is immediately striking, just sporting two knobs, one for volume and the other for chat control, and two buttons, one for power and the other to activate simulated 7.1 surround sound. The buttons light up red, and really accent the black & white sheen of the Mixamp. Keeping up with the quality aesthetic design are the headphones themselves. The white ones remind me very much of the black & white droids with the red LED face screens from

Hello, this is D-Day1944, and today I will be doing a review on the Astro A40 Audio System (2013 Edition). I know that many of you have been waiting for this one. So, let us get started.


Astro has already proven themselves as a one of the most successful gaming headphone brands in recent memory. However, with Turtle Beach snagging the contract for the new headset licensed by MLG (Major League Gaming), and Tritton having made their turnaround with the 720+, things are more difficult for the A40. To make matters worse, Astro's old rivals, the Beyerdynamic MMX 300 and Sennheiser PC 360, did not make things any easier for this new edition. The most talked about this year, however, the Plantronics Commander, has made things even harder. With all these new competitors, does the A40 still have the sound performance to best its rivals, or has time really taken a toll on this consistent successful performer? Also, should you even consider to upgrade to the 2013 edition? Those questions will be answered soon, so stay tuned!

Out of the Box/Looks:

To start out, if you have already have owned the Astro A40 System, there will not be much change here. However, if you have not, here is to explain what the box looks like.

To start out, the box itself has the Audio System logo on it. On the back, there is a quick set-up guide for those who are new to how a gaming headset is supposed to be hooked up, and on the sides, their is additional information about the A40 specifications.

Now, as you pull of the cover of the box, you are greeted with a eye catching design of graphical artwork. You will then notice a tab sticking out. Once you pull back the tab, the headset itself will appear. There is a 3.5mm input located on the left side.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best. May 16, 2013
Color Name:Black| Edition:New|Verified Purchase
I have been debating for quite some time as to whether or not to purchase this headset, mainly because of the price point. After seeing the ringing endorsements made by various pro gamers, I decided that there must be at least a kernel of truth in them, and made the plunge.
Am I ever glad I did. The headset itself is very well designed and made, with superior materials and workmanship. The design makes the headset very comfortable to wear over long periods of time, and is easy to adjust to fit your noggin. Each earcup can swivel, and is individually height adjustable with a sliding scale, not a cheap clicky one. I've read some reviews that state the A40 is heavy, that is a somewhat misleading statement. In its class, which is the professional gaming headset, it is actually on the lighter side, and again its design makes it extremely comfortable to wear.
The MixAmp is the heart and soul of the setup. With this little box, you get Dolby Pro Logic without using the optical cable, or Dolby 5.1 Surround with it. The setup comes with an optical cable for use with the PC setup, and a TOSLink cable is available separately. One of the features that sets this apart from its competitors is the ability to turn the game or voice audio up or down depending on which channel you wish to be dominant. The difference here is that the MixAmp does not simply turn volume up or down, it actually changes the mix of the channels in the output to match your desires. The setup is able to be used with the Xbox, PS3, PC or Mac, as well as other devices you may wish to use a headset with.
The soundstage provided with this headset and MixAmp is spectacular. The MixAmp comes with 4 preset EQ settings accessed by the EQ button on the MixAmp.
