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.

"*9.7 – Amazing (out of 10)"
“A30 is by no means a cheap endeavor, but in our opinion, every dollar spent is matched with high quality components, top-tier audio performance, and a level of unique style seldom seen in gaming headphones.”
"*The 100 best gadgets of the Complex Decade"
“The A30s previously made it onto our Best Of Year list because of its amazing sound quality—watching movies on our iPad using the A30s was sick—and its comfort. ASTRO outfitted the A30s with extremely soft ear pads covered in some sort of felt-like material. The end result is a pair of headphones you won't mind wearing all-day.”
“..the detachable boom microphone and additional in-line mic with call answer/music pause button let the A30 double as a smartphone headset.”
“…as a gaming headset it was compelling and comfortable enough to use whenever we booted up our PS3 or 360.”
