Mic Quality. Very clear sound. Communication is very good, you're able to hear individual words well. It's not going to make a natural sound like when you're talking face-to-face with someone. It's more like a crystal clear radio voice with no raspy interference or static, which you need if you're in a competitive team setting
Picking up footsteps (Mainly for first person shooter games). Works very well, the drivers in the headset is dedicated to it, seeing use in other forms of entertainment is okay. This is basically what you're getting the headset for in my opinion as it's the main focus as being a tournament ready device. In general, the headset picks exaggerated footsteps sounds very well, which is perfect for gameplay (which is more enhanced if you hook up an Amp)
For dynamic range of sound, from my experience it depends on the game, and sound team of devs that built the game. If you want to be competitive for any game while using any headset, i recommend going to the sound options of the game and turn off music volume completely and max out sound effects/in-game sound. This will improve your game sense and may rank you up in the game because of it.
Comfort. One of the best headsets for long term use. Best I've tried is the Honstek G6 Wired PC Gaming Headset; fit your head very well and super soft even after extended use, but the sound quality is not good on it. Back on topic, ear bud padding is excellent, does not clamp your head with excessive pressure. You are able to adjust the vertical length of both sides for a custom fit. Love how the cups rotate, and able to hang below your neck and lay on your chest. Most headphones I've tried have a tight clasp squeezing, if not trying to choke you making you take the headset off completely and put it off to the side when taking breaks. With these they can just hang on you without any discomfort.
Visual design. It's all black with hint of gold. Would love if the spiral wire on the sides were of different color to make the headset pop-out more like the Astro A50 I own. Looks very good for home/office use. For displaying in public, you may get some odd looks, especially with the mic attachment. With the A40TR you are able to switch face-plates if you want a more custom look
In-line controls. Very ergonomic, you are able to distinguish every button/slider without looking at it. Very natural, don't even have to build up a habit. You can also lift up the mic on the headset to mute yourself, which I tend to gravitate towards since I built a habit with the A50s.
Overall, very solid gaming headset. If you can afford it, I'd get another headset for other forms of entertainment as this headset does a decent job, but not the best out there.Having a variety of headsets also helps you get more focused in a competitive setting when your head feels the difference in pressure making you more in-tune with the game (maybe that's just me). If you have any questions, put in the the comments and i'll try my best to answer to best of my ability. Happy Gaming!
The headset is also very comfortable, and the audio is good as well.
Another thing that makes this headset great is the swivel action of the cans themselves, and the fact that you can unplug the cord from the headset. Also, the ability to switch the mic to be on either side of the headset is nice for people who have a strong preference. Lastly, the ability to be able to order custom tags for the sides is really cool.
CON: No boom on the mic.
Maybe a little too easy to accidentally adjust the volume knob.
