A40 Audio System
Metal Gear Solid 4 Edition
About Metal Gear Solid & ASTRO Gaming:
Developed by Kojima Productions, the Metal Gear series has captivated millions of gamers over the past twenty years. When MGS4 was released in 2008 it was hailed as the “most technically stunning video game ever made” – and the crew here at Astro Gaming couldn’t agree more. When presented with the opportunity of doing an MGS4 Edition of the A40 with our newly enhanced PS3-compatible Mixamp, we jumped at the chance.
If you haven’t played MGS4, you’re missing out. Go out and buy yourself a PS3, get a copy of MGS4, and play the game as it’s meant to be played – in full Dolby Surround on your MGS4 Edition A40 Audio System.
Go forth and enjoy!

XBOX ONE COMPATIBILITY
All ASTRO Gaming console headsets (A30+MixAmp™ Pro, A40+MixAmp™ Pro, A50) deliver Dolby® Digital 7.1 game audio, but require the use of the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to enable online voice chat. To ensure you receive the best Xbox One audio experience, please make sure you have the latest firmware updates installed for both the Xbox One Console and Controller, as well as your ASTRO Gaming hardware.
ASTRO headsets are fully compatible with PS4 once the Firmware 1.50 update has been applied to the console. Our headsets will deliver Dolby® Digital 5.1 and 7.1 game audio and full voice chat functionality over the PlayStation Network.
ASTRO MIXAMP PRO
ASTRO MixAmp™ Pros let you adjust your game-to-voice balancing, choose from up to 4 different EQ modes (2013 ed. only) made for gaming/media, and link multiple MixAmp™ Pros together for a lag-free private voice network.
CUSTOMIZABLE SPEAKER TAGS
Change-up your style on the A40 or A30 headsets with our magnetic Speaker Tag system. Or, customize your setup by designing your tags at our online Speaker Tag Customizer.
DOLBY DIGITAL 7.1®
Plug into an ASTRO MixAmp™ and immerse yourself in the audio of your favorite games. Use every gunshot and footstep to pinpoint exactly where the fight is and get the drop on your opponents before they hear you.
ASTRO MixAmp™ Pro (included in all Audio Systems) and the A50 Built in MixAmp™ + Transmitter (included in all A50 Wireless Systems) ensure compatibility with any major platform you choose to game on. Whether you're gaming on a PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, or a mobile platform, ASTRO has you covered.

- "Astro Gaming represents the pinnacle of personal gaming audio. Although it is designed for the pros, nearly everyone in the intermediate or hardcore range can stand to benefit from its features, design, and construction. ""These things sound glorious." "A40 headphones deliver sharp, crisp and powerful audio, which I credit with helping to improve my performance in some recent Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer gaming. "
“The sound quality in this headset and mixer are amazing and second to none in the headset market. The bass/lows are right where they should be and are thunderous but not overwhelming. The mids and highs are crisp and clear. All told, the audio capabilities combined make ODST and Killzone 2 sound fantastic.”
“The Astro A40 system is easily one of the best headsets/gaming audio systems we have ever tested.”
