  1. Astro A40 + Mix Amp M80 Is The Best Headset I've Ever Owned!


    Today is the day I finally say goodbye to Turtle Beach. I've been using Turtle Beach headsets since the X1s, but the Astro A40 is hands down the best headset I've used so far, especially for the price.

    First off I was skeptical since it plugs directly into the controller, I had a pair of Turtle Beach XO Sevens and the audio quality was a huge let down, but this headset sounds AMAZING! Footsteps are nice and crisp, the bass is absolutely perfect, and I
    feel like I'm getting a great 360 degree audio experience. This headset has also shown me that you DO NOT need surround sound to have a great gaming experience. When I returned my XO Sevens I picked up the PX4 because of the emulated 5.1 surround sound and
    the EQ/limiter presets, and the A40s blow the PX4 out of the water. I just can't stress enough how awesome this headset sounds.

    Side Note: Game devs need to move away from surround sound and just begin recording in stereo binaural audio. Don't know what binaural audio is? Get some noise canceling ear buds or headphones and check this video out:


    Second is comfort and build quality. When I first pulled them out of the box I was a little upset that I couldn't adjust the headset, but after putting them on that worry went away instantly. They feel like a feather sitting on your head, and this is the
    first headset I've had that didn't put direct pressure on my ears or my glasses. It's really nice to wear for long periods of time. It also isn't made from that cheap plastic that a lot of other headsets use. I feel like I could toss this headset down on my
    couch or accidentally drop it and have no fear of anything cracking or breaking.

    Finally, this magically MixAmp M80. OH. MEH. GAWD. Imagine having a MixAmp Pro plugged directly into your controller. The thing that makes it so great though is the built in LED display. Unlike the official Microsoft headset adapter, you have a LED display
    that shows you your volume levels and the balance between the voice and game volume. It also has 3 different EQ presets (Natural, Pro, and Media) that you can change right from the controller. This little device is what the official adapter should have been.
    ( Here is an image of the M80 for reference:

    )

    Overall this headset is an awesome pickup for $175. If you're looking for a headset that is $200 or less and you want the most bang for your buck, this baby is it.

    Audio: 8.5/10

    Comfort/Build: 8/10

    Price: 9/10

    :)

    Audio Submenu Disappeared From Settings Menu

    I don't have the Audio option there either, I am using an Astro A40 + Mix Amp M80. The Mix Amp has a built in game and voice balancer, as well as volume control, So I've never really needed that.

    Do you have a headset that is plugged in to the controller and registered by the Xbox?

    Please recommend a XBOX Gaming HEADSET

    I have an Astro A40 and Mix Amp M80 and it works great, I can't say I have had any issues with it.

    There is an 'adapter' like device which plugs into the Xbox One controller via USB connection, but that is included. (or at least with the one I got).

    Just be sure to do your research before purchasing a headset to make sure that will work in the way that you want it too.

    I will be happy to answer any questions you have about the Astro A40 and Mix Amp M80, should you want to know more.
