5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing surround sound experience August 18, 2011
Color Name:White
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.

Introduction:

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 Experienced owner of other brands. November 12, 2012
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I already own a pair of these and use them for my game consoles, however they are capable of much more! I've also used them on my iPhone and laptop. The sound quality of these headphones is near audiophile level. The directional precision is impeccable, the quality is so high that I had to change the way I sound-whored in Battlefield. I own a pair of X41s and Tritton AXPROs, they're now retired and collecting dust. The build quality is very impressive and comfort level is unparalleled. Astro actually studied the amount of pressure required to maintain comfort. They don't hurt even when I'm wearing my glasses and 3D glasses at the same time. Both of the microphones on the headset are very good too. The boom mic is my favorite with it's ability to be moved to the other side with a quick pull and push. The in-line mic is also very good and if you're not a fan of boom style mics offers a great alternative. When they're plugged into the mix amp, they provide the best clarity and noise cancelling for the mic I've ever experienced. If you take gaming serious and want to compete on a higher level, these are the headphones for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A40+Mixamp 2013 bundle = worthwhile January 12, 2013
Color Name:Black
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
You may know me as Mad Lust Envy on Head-fi and Shin CZ/Raven Crimson elsewhere.

Aah, things have come full circle. Back in 2009, the Astro A40+Mixamp bundle was my very first foray into headphone gaming. While they weren't what truly started the obsession as you all know it today (that goes to the AD700s, as they were a real eye-opener), the A40 was the first recommendation I was ever given. While I wasn't impressed by the bass light, hollow sound coming off the A40s, the Mixamp which became the most important purchase I had ever made in audio. So even though I didn't love the A40s, that bundle was the very beginning.

The current A40 Audio System comes with the Mixamp 2013 Edition, which brings in the addition of an Equalizer/preset button, to customize the sound on whatever headphone you have plugged in. The presets benefit the A40s greatly, as I will touch upon in the review. This review of the A40 will be when paired to the Mixamp 2013, compared to my other reviews which have been with the Mixamp 5.8. Makes more sense, as anyone interested in the A40 will more than likely buy it as a bundle with the Mixamp 2013 Edition. The differences in the Mixamps are that the 5.8 is slightly brighter and thinner sounding (a little clearer sounding overall), while the Mixamp 2013 Edition is warmer and thicker (which I find more beneficial to thin sounding headphones). The packaging is very well-crafted, and artistic. Astro surely knows how to present their items like no other headset company.

Upon first listen, I found that the A40s are quite warm and bass emphasized. A radical departure from the thin, cold, and hollow sounding old school A40s. The A50s are very bass heavy and muddy in it's innate sound signature, which the A40 thankfully isn't.
