Here's the rundown.
[COMFORT] They just feel right - they're pretty light which makes it easier for longer sessions. Which for me occur frequently. And the padding is super nice around the ears.
[AUDIO] I like the audio - its super crisp. You can pick up a lot more subtle tones such as footsteps and door-creaks or other ultra-dim sounds. I've tested them out on my iPod and the highs and lows are equivalent to my Beats by Dre headphones. So, if you're thinking of buying some expensive headphones for music - you can save some money by just getting these.
[PERSONALIZE] If you want to have custom tags - like my Pinky and the Brain tags - you can easily create personalized headset tags on the astrogaming website. Also, here on amazon - you can purchase pre-made tags for about $10 cheaper than the custom ones. Another option for personalizing you're headset it to go with the TR add-on - last time i checked they had a green and black leather one and an orange and black COD option. These are also available here on Amazon.
[Ease-of-Use] Simple plug and play interface makes it super easy to control. After plugging it in you'll have to do a controller update (which takes about a min).
[CONTROLS] If you want nothing but game audio just tap the controller icon until the white lights have filled in the available slots and vice versa. The master volume control is super convenient and it also acts as a mute toggle.
[FEEL] The overall feel is supreme quality - its very nice and it contours to with your hands in the controllers in a pleasant ergonomic manner.
For the voice chat, I'm mixed. I like the balancing features and the very convenient volume wheel, but I find that even the lowest voice setting (without completely muting the voice chat) is too loud. I much prefered my trusty old Turtle Beach X3's, which had variable volume on both voice and game, but those days are over. The xbox one has a poor voice chat system, and the voice mixer does not work for game chat, only party chat. I usually mute the game chat anyways so this doesn't bother me too much.
Still, the xbox one headset options are a bit limited. Astro has produced the single best standalone headset if you don't want to buy their mix amp (which I wholly recommend, it's fantastic). If you can get this headset for under $100, buy it. But there is no way it's worth the $200 or even the $160 price tag at it's current price. I was lucky and managed to pick it up for around $90 in a Used - Like New condition. I recommend you buy it refurbished or Used - Very Good or better, because you can save around $80 by doing so, with almost no difference in product quality.
I'm happy with this headset but it has it's drawbacks, but that is not Astro's fault. They've made a very good headset for what they had to work with.
These are still going strong almost a year later. You get use to not having a voice monitor which is why it wasn't a big deal. The big difference between these and the Turtle Beach is that the volume controls on the turtle beach wear out way to fast, making it hard to get the chat and game volume mixed right. But the Astro A40s really are a great headset and investment if you take care of them.
