Astro Gaming A40 Quick Disconnect Connector Circumaural Headset - Black
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Mic broken, poor customer service 10/19/2014

This review is from: Astro Gaming A40 Quick Disconnect Connector Circumaural Headset - Black

Pros: Worked for under 4 months, was great. Sound is okay, not much sound cancellation.

Cons: Broken mic and poor customer service. If you'd like a full description, I'd recommend going to the white version of this headset. Because I posted a full review there.

Other Thoughts: There are better headsets from more reputable companies for less. Buy elsewhere.

1 out of 5 eggs Revoking my review. 10/19/2014

This review is from: Astro Gaming A40 Quick Disconnect Connector Circumaural Headset - White

Pros: Sound works. Was good while it lasted.

Cons: Microphone broke, and it transmits input audio even before the microphone broke, (music I listen to, game audio, anything I hear) back through the output. This means that whoever I'm talking to gets the enjoyment of hearing themselves and anything else. As of this point I revoke my previous review in this new light. Furthermore, Astro can't seem to maintain any decent degree of customer service and takes them days to respond. I HIGHLY recommend that this product be avoided, there are cheaper headsets with better quality; they do not, by any means, uphold the $150 I spent on this headset. What kind of gaming headset has frequent microphone issues in less than four months? Honestly.

Other Thoughts: If you want to replace the microphone, they charge you $25 (15 for the mic, $10 for shipping).
I wish Newegg would implement a review edit so I don't have to submit one again.

5 out of 5 eggs A Much Needed Improvement 08/07/2014

This review is from: Astro Gaming A40 Quick Disconnect Connector Circumaural Headset - White

Pros: Great sound, bass, sturdy, relatively comfortable, good looks.

Cons: Uncomfortable on the top of the head after 4+ hours, but just shift them back/forward a bit and it'll be fine. Headsets are like shoes.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a nice headset with 7.1 audio. While the Logitech G930s were appealing (to the point where I almost purchased them), a week of thinking it over led me to conclude that the A40s were for me, research included. They are sturdy, possess excellent features, and emit sound only able to be mimicked by angels. Obviously the last part isn't true, angels can't sound this good. $250 on a headset was too much for me, but $150 was a good median for me.
