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 Media Cabling System – The Media 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 Media Cable that plugs directly into the headset via a 3.5mm 4-pole jack. The Media Cable offers an in-line microphone, an in-line mute switch, a volume control wheel, and a call/pickup/tracking button.
