    About the A40 Headset

    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.

    New Mobile Cabling System – The Mobile Cable is has been optimized for PC, Notebook, and Mobile gaming by putting the controls right at your fingertips. We've updated the Quick Disconnect system, with our new Mobile Cable that plugs directly into the headset via a 3.5mm 4-pole jack. The Mobile Cable offers an in-line microphone, an in-line mute switch, a volume control wheel, and a call/pickup/tracking button.

    **NOTE - The MixAmp™ MUST be purchased in order to use Xbox Live, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 online voice communication and enable 7.1 Dolby Surround in your A40 Headset. Please browse Audio Systems for MixAmp™ plus Headset bundles.**

    "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. "
