A40 PC Headset
Neon Color Series
The 2013 Astro A40 PC gaming headset is all you’re ever going to need or want to game in the highest sound and voice quality on your PC or notebook. For years, the A40 has been the “gold standard” in gaming headphones. We now have a headset specifically for those who prefer the click of a mouse rather than squeeze of a controller trigger.
Capture all sounds the developers intended while speaking clearly through our precision mic. Tuned with Astro Audio, the “gold standard” in gaming headphones is now available in a PC specific version.

The Media Cable offers an in-line microphone, an in-line mute switch, a volume control wheel, and a call/pickup/tracking button.

- "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. "
