Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Astro is a fantastic company to buy from. They boast excellent surround sound tech and headphones as well as a focus on great customer service. I know this personally, as over the summer I purchased their A40 Audio System (White) and have been loving it ever since. You may wonder why I would buy a pair of their A30s since I already own the decidedly more powerful A40s. Well, I'll get to that later, but first, let me just objectively review the A30s as best I can. Whenever deciding whether or not I should purchase pair of headphones as expensive as these, I always appreciated the reviews that went into great detail the most, so I will try to be as informative as I can here for you. Full disclosure, I already own the Mixamp from when I bought my A40 audio system, and I only bought the A30 headphones this time around. That been said, I can tell you from experience about all parts of this package very accurately.

You'll know you've received an Astro product the minute you see the box their stuff is packed in. It's all very slick and reminiscent of an Apple product: modern, artistic, striking, almost zenlike. The Mixamp itself is quite stylish and simplistic, sporting a large knob for volume, a small one for Astro's patented voice/game balance controls, and two buttons, one to turn the system on, and one to activate the 7.1 surround sound. The A30 headphones are gorgeous, and quite different in design from the A40s. It actually reminds me of something you'd see out of 1960's space age comics, such as a space suit component or computer/TV from that era. It's all very, very cool in a sci-fi retro sort of way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best headset ever? June 21, 2011
By Henry
Color Name:Black
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been researching a ton on a universal headset for gaming for all consoles including PC, perfect headphones for music and movies, and of course... sexy looking! I not only researched, but also tried out a bunch of headsets in the market. Turtle Beach and Tritton are the main competitors for Astrogaming. Turtle Beach's are honestly, not that great. The new PX5's, supposedly the best out the TB's... aren't that good, as critics all over the internet say. Tritton has a pretty good lineup with the 720's and the pros. I'd say the 720's are the best bet if you're strapped on cash.

Once you're done looking at those options, the Astro Audio Headset is the way to go 100%. There are two models you can decide between... the A30's and the A40's. I've debated between myself as well as many other people to which headset is better... the answer is all personal. They both perform highly in surround sound gaming, music quality, as well as high quality sound for movies. It depends on whether you like on ear or over ear designs, and down to the aesthetics. I personally love the look for the sleek, slimmer, more portable A30's over the huge, bulky, but still cool looking A40's. A30's are designed to be the ultimate cross-gaming headset as well as for a must for mobile users.

When I mean by mobile, you can literally take this headset anywhere! They're designed to be in your room, around your house, but definitely also street-ready. You won't be looked at weird if you have these babies on, as they look like traditional, but also their own unique sexy headphone styled headset. In fact, people have complimented on how nice the headset looked.

Onto gaming, probably the main reason why I got these bad boys. Like I said, it performed excellently with great sound quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not meet my expectations January 7, 2014
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Sometimes the mic does not pick up my voice and other times I could not hear people. I would need to unplug the cords and plug them in again before the mic would continue working. Would happen at least 3 times per hour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, versatile headset! November 1, 2011
By Fabian
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Recently my wireless Turtle Beach headset messed up which led me to search for a replacement. Originally I was going to buy another headset like a Turtle Beach which are around 60 dollars. After much deliberation and having used my cousins Astro A40's I decided to buy an Astro headset. Originally I was going to buy the A40's, but then I came across the A30's. It should also be noted that just becuase the A30's have a lesser model number than the A40's, the A30's are actually the most recent model.

Both are great headsets, but the A30's provide much more versatility than the A40's. For instance the A30's can be used with your phone. The boom mic is detachable and there is an inline mic for phone use. They are also perfect for listening to your music while walking around which is what I do around campus. If you have ever owned or seen a gaming headset you would know that they can be huge, but the A30's have a low profile compared to many others. They are slightly bigger than the Dre headphones which is relatively small.

The sound quality on these are amazing. I can clearly hear and distinguish the lows, mids, and highs on the A30's. It's just so crisp. When I used these while gaming I could hear everything clearly. When I played MW2 for the Xbox 360 I could clearly hear the footsteps of others and the sound of the footsteps were never distorted by the loud noises of an airstrike.

The mix amp is just pure genius. You can plug in an MP3 or iPod to it while having the main line connecting the headset to the console. I actually enjoyed this feature because when I played MW2 or any other game necessary to hear sounds, I would have to stop playing music via the Xbox music library for no matter how low it was it seemed to supersede the game noises.
