It's comin' in hot!
Our latest release, the wireless MixAmp 5.8™, has been getting amazing reviews from all over. Thousands of man-hours have been spent compiling this epic list to help you make your holiday gaming purchases.
“The one thing Astro Gaming’s lineup of gaming headphone solutions have been lacking is wireless connectivity; that is, of course, until now. The company has responded to the demands of players and critics with the MixAmp 5.8 – a new adaptive wireless system that allows users to combine not just their existing Astro headphones, but any set of headphones or earbuds from any manufacturer with the system to achieve wireless freedom. We’ve put Astro’s new wireless solution to the test, and we’ve been blown away by the results.”
“I’ve mentioned in the past that I have become quite a fan of headphone gaming. Living with a girlfriend and having neighbors who don’t appreciate a good subwoofer rocking the apartment will do that to a person. So when I was invited by Astro Gaming to come check out two of their newest products, I started to feel a geeky tingle of excitement in my knees to see what they’ve been cooking.”
“As for the sound…well, it’s Astro. They don’t roll something out unless it works, and works well. We used them for everything from music (DJ Hero 2) to action (Fable III) to FPSes (Modern Warfare 2), and it all sounded great. The Dolby 7.1 (as long as you use an optical cable to connect your console to the base station) means you can hear everything, from footsteps overhead to the direction a gnome’s chastising voice is coming from. There’s been a lot of sequels in gaming this year, but we can confidently say that this is one innovation that we can’t imagine improving upon.”
“…this is the MixAmp we have been waiting for. Light, small, stylish, and wireless. It has most of the benefits of the original, in a package that we can freely move around with. If you will be purchasing any MixAmp this holiday season, we suggest this one.”
Don’t take our word for it, take theirs. After all, they’re the pros and do this kind of stuff for a living. Stay tuned for more review recaps!
