Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review



Every once and awhile a friend or colleague will mention a brand or product to me that I didn’t know even existed. Sometimes I check out these products and realize that there is a definite reason that I don’t know who the company is. The other times though, the company ends up being a group like Astro.

As somebody doesn’t spend a whole lot of time following MLG and things of the sort, I had very little knowledge of Astro or their high-quality headsets. Luckily a friend and I were talking one afternoon when he told me that I should definitely try and get a pair of Astro A40′s for review. I asked him why, and he responded with, “they’re the best sound gaming headsets on the market.” Being thoroughly intrigued, I had to look into them. What I found was a company that is well regarded for making headsets that succeed on every level.

Color me intrigued, so off I went to get in contact with them. After awhile I finally succeeded in making contact, and a few weeks later I had a pair of Astro A40′s on the Go! Gaming Giant test-bench. So, let’s get this review of the Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition started already.

Box Overview

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The Astro A40 headset comes in a rather large grey box. On the front is a picture of the headset, MixAmp, as well as two listed features (but the most important for decision making)

Swinging around to the back, Astro gives us a diagram showcasing a few different setup features for the Astro A40′s. These include how to install the microphone, connecting the headset to the MixAmp, as well as the key information that you can install the mic on either side of the headset, and that the ear tags or interchangeable, meaning that you can purchase ear tags for your favorite games and replace the pre-included ones.

Over on the right side of the back is where Astro lists the essential information for both the A40 headset and the MixAmp.

The Goodies

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

After sliding the outer-sleeve off, we’re introduced to the inner box. This one has some crazy robo-graffiti stuff going. It’s a bit epileptic, but I dig it. Grabbing the clear little tab and pulling up leads to the two partitions opening, revealing the A40 and MixAmp PRO. Those aren’t what we’re interested in at this very moment. Instead, we want what’s in that far right compartment.

Pulling it open gives us a sheet of paper on top, under that the microphone nestled safely inside plastic. Removing that gives us the cables and a another sheet of paper underneath.  The first sheet is a welcome sheet to the Astro family, (I have too many families, sorry Astro) with the other being a Quick Start Guide.

papers Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

Before I get started, I just want to mention that all of these cables have a rubber coating and gold-plated connectors. Alright, let’s work our way through this large bundle of cables. At the very top is the breakaway cable. This one is the cable that runs from the headset into the MixAmp PRO. Notice that it has a little plastic box connected to it. This rubber little bugger is your microphone control. In the red position it’s in means that the mic is muted. sliding it up will turn the microphone on. It’s rubber coated, and has little nubs all over it, making gripping it relatively easy, but sliding it is still a bit of a hassle.

Below that is the extra 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. (AUX) You can use this for hooking up to your TV or Stereo or Phone.. Basically anything with a 3.5mm port available. Next up is the Xbox 360 chat cable. This cable looks similar to the AUX, but it’s not. The AUX is 3.5mm, while the Xbox cable is 2.5mm.

You can’t utilize this system without power, so this USB to Mini-USB cable is by far the most important cable in the box. It’s plenty long for average usage, just don’t hope to run the box 10ft from its’ power source. The single 3.5mm to 2x 3.5mm is pretty self-explanatory. This adapter is used for those of you who don’t have digital optical available on your PC. By using this adapter, you will be able to utilize both the mic and headset with your PC, whereas the single 3.5mm (AUX) will not support both.

The last two things we have are the microphone on the far left, and the digital optical cable on the far right. The things to note for both, is that the microphone is entirely malleable, making getting into a comfortable position extremely easy. As for the digital optical cable — it’s only compatible with the MixAmp Pro, so please don’t try to use a different cable, or lose this one. (or else you’ll have to buy a new one) The reason behind this is because it has a unique design that is only useable with the MixAmp PRO. (It can be seen at the bottom of the cable in the image)

An A40 And MixAmp PRO Walk Into A Bar….

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The MixAmp PRO

Before we get to the headset, let’s take a look at the MixAmp PRO that I’ve heard (and in-turn, you’ve heard) so much about.

From a top-down perspective, it’s a good looking piece of hardware. We have a power button in the top left corner, a gigantic volume wheel right in the middle, EQ button on the left side, Dolby Surround Sound button on the right, and a smaller wheel that controls the balance between game and voice.

The buttons have a satisfying click to them, while the wheels both have enough resistance to not feel cheap. They have a black textured finish, while the rest of the top has a glossy black finish. This will of course lead to plenty of fingerprints, but that’s just something you’ll have to live with. Something I didn’t get a picture of, is that the top may be glossy, but the rest of the MixAmp has a rubber coating, including the bottom. It doesn’t grip real well, but it helps a small bit. The box has plenty of heft, so it shouldn’t slide all over the place unless you’re yanking vigorously on the cables.

mixamp top Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

On the front is four ports. From left to right is a daisy-chain port, the A40 cable port, Xbox microphone port, and an additional daisy-chain port. For those of you who don’t know what daisy-chain ports are, it means you can plug in multiple headsets into this MixAmp IF you have the available 3.5mm cable on your additional headset.

mixamp front Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

The back is laid out in a simple fashion, much like the first. We have from left to right the optical port, MP3 port, (also known as AUX) stream port, and the USB port. What is a Stream Port?? I’ll let Astro tell you in their own words. Perfect for live streaming or game capture, the Stream port is a 3.5mm jack that combines the Dolby mixed Game Audio with both incoming and outgoing Voice Chat into a single output to go into a PC mic input or video capture devices.

mixamp back Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

The Astro A40′s

I wasn’t sure what to make of this headset at first. It looks great, but is also solid plastic, which worried me. The front gives us a general overview of the entire headset, including the cloth ear-cups, solid black finish on the headset, and the padded headband.

a40 front Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

Here is the left ear-cup, this is the stock microphone side, which is obvious because of the 3.5mm opening. The headset has a matte black finish, while the included ear tags are glossy black, with an ‘a’ in the middle. I’m not a fan of the exposed wiring here. It may never get damaged, but it does make me uneasy since it’s just kind of hanging out there. Pulling off the ear tag reveals to us the open-ear design that the Astro A40′s use. This headset breathes extremely well on your head, while still giving sonically accurate audio. Note that the ear tags are held on by four small magnets.

Well that’s a little bit different. Instead of having a black ‘a’ on the right ear-cup, Astro decided to put actual branding on this side. Peeling off this ear tag reveals the exact same thing as the other side, including the support for the microphone. All you need to do if you want to switch sides is switch the ear tags. It’s really that simple.

Let’s take a closer look at the headband adjuster. They use a compression method that requires a bit of force to adjust the headband. If you look inside the opening, you can actually see the cable bundled inside. I found this hand placement was perfect for adjusting the headset. Almost like squeezing a giant syringe! ^_^

Moving up top gives us a bit more Astro branding. The top uses a floating suspension system, helping distribute the weight across three points, while only one sits on your head, which is of course the middle cloth part. This little opening below the left ear-cup is where you’ll install the breakaway cable we spoke of earlier.

headband top Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

As anybody who has worn an uncomfortable headset can tell you. The ear-cup have to be able to move to fit the ears comfortably. Well fear not, Astro made sure that not only do they maneuver up and down, but that they have a full range of motion side-to-side, allowing for them to turn completely sideways. This is obviously NOT have you will wear them on your head, but it does allow for them to sit flush on your desk, if that’s how you like to roll.

First Impressions / Setup

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

My impressions of the Astro A40 headset and MixAmp PRO were extremely positive all the way around at first. Now that’s not to say that I left feeling letdown, but simply that I had high expectations going in, and the A40′s didn’t disappoint at first.

The build quality worried me initially, thanks to them being entirely plastic, but I can report confidently that this headset is very well-built, and can take a beating and keep on going. The black finish on the headset is, luckily, not a fingerprint magnet, and doesn’t chip away either. Sadly I cannot say the same for the MixAmp PRO. No, don’t worry, it didn’t chip! It’s just a massive fingerprint magnet. You have to wipe it down at least every other day if you want it to continue looking awesome.

Fit Finish Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

Setting up the entire system was very painless. I ran the USB to Mini-USB from the MixAmp into the PC, then ran the Digital Optical cable to the PC, proceeded to run the breakaway from the headset into the MixAmp, and away I went! Make sure that inside your PC Audio settings you set the default audio source to Digital Optical NOT the Astro A40 MixAmp. The reasoning behind this, is that selecting Astro A40 as the default, leads to it bypassing the MixAmp, and giving you simple Stereo Sound, whereas selecting Digital Optical gives you full control of the MixAmp, which means surround sound, and EQ settings.

The first thing you’ll need to decide for yourself, is which EQ you prefer. There are four included, which are Custom Audio Profiles – Like the ASTRO A50, the MixAmp Pro now has a new control allowing users to switch between 4 pre-set Audio Profiles – Pro, Core, Media and Sports. Soon ASTRO users will be able to create and share their own custom audio profiles via astrogaming.com as well.

1. Pro – ASTRO’s pro gaming mode, created with our pro teams and players to provide the best sound profile for competitive gaming, accentuating details like footsteps and respawns in an immersive surround sound experience.

2. Core – Hear your games just as the developer’s intended with no extra processing or balancing.

3. Media – Best for watching movies or listening to music, accentuating vocals and bass.

4. Sports – Put yourself in the stadium, whether playing sports games or watching sporting event on TV.

I personally found the Pro to be best for gaming, while the Media was by far the most enjoyable for listening to music. Since I don’t watch sports on my PC often (football season is over) I didn’t find a usage for the Sports EQ, and just testing it out with music and gaming, it sounded terrible. (probably why it’s not made for them) The Core also sounds quite good for gaming, especially if the game has great mixing to begin with.

Also, the Dolby Surround Sound is an absolute must for this headset to sound great. As with most headsets tuned for virtual surround sound, listening to things in Stereo Mode sounded so flat! In fact, just testing out the stereo sound made me cringe. Everything about the sound is super flat in stereo mode. I do not recommend using this headset in stereo for any reason!

Dolby Digital Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

As for the mic, this is another hit-or-miss scenario. At times, my teammates on Vent would say that I sounded absolutely amazing, with the microphone being sharp, crisp, and clear, along with background noise being cancelled out.. Other times, I still came in crisp, and sharp, with the background noise cancelled out, but apparently I sounded like a robot.. I tested the microphone with some self-recording, and came to the same conclusion they did. At times the microphone sounds professional-grade, while other times it gives me some weird distortion.

Obviously I went in and made sure that all effects were disabled and whatnot, but it didn’t make a difference. My voice consistently came out nice and loud, with background noise being cancelled out extremely well. (a feat made more impressive by the fact that my brother-in-law sits behind me yelling into his mic the entire gaming session) The problem was with what I sounded like. Although this was an issue, the control over game and voice volume was definitely not!

Testing

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

For testing, I ran with a handful of games for different systems as well as some movie and music testing.

 

Music

 

Excision & Downlink – Existence VIP 

High – A // While the highs had plenty of pop, and the sound quality was phenomenal. The problem I had was that the sharpness and clarity were lacking, taking away from the brightness.

Mid – A // Overall the mids were extremely positive, with everything being crisp and clear, until there was a lot happening in the track towards the middle. At this point, the mids began to muddy a bit, detracting from, up until that point, was an almost perfect, crisp experience.

Low – A+ // No complaints at all here. The Astro A40 headset took every low frequency that the track threw at it, and responded with strong and clear bass. I was thoroughly impressed with the results here. There was the perfect mixture of boom and crisp thud to make any bass lover smile.

 

As I Lay Dying – Awakened

High – A+ // The highs on this album have never sounded better to date. Everything was so bright and vibrant, with me even being able to pick out stick effects on the hi-hat during some tracks. That’s an amazing feat when there is so much happening at one time.

Mid – B+ // I was disappointed here. After how clear the highs turned out to be, the mids ended up just feeling muddy. Now perhaps that’s just my perception, since the highs were so freaking sharp, but compared to them, the mids gave me the impression of lacking in clarity.

Low – A // Not nearly as impressive as with the dub step, but still a highly enjoyable experience. The low frequencies here actually got a bit too boomy for my taste, leading to a lack of clarity on certain low frequencies. This happened mostly on tracks with massive double bass and mad bass-slapping riffs.

 

Fear Factory – The Industrialist

High – A // On a high note (pun intended) these highs were great. At times there was a lack of definition, but for the most part every track was clear and crisp, with plenty of brightness and vibrancy.

Mid – A // Not much to say here. The album was clear and crisp. I didn’t notice any faults with the mids, just simply that they weren’t as bright as what is possible with the source material.

Low – A // With that synthesized drum-track, I knew that the low would have plenty of clarity, but what I wasn’t expecting was the added bit of thump that I got on certain tracks with the Astro A40′s. They did a great job picking up the few rare occasions when the fake drums actually had some stones.

 

28 Days Later Soundtrack – In The House, In A Heartbeat

High – A+ // What an experience. That’s really all there is to say. The highs were bright, vibrant, and wholly engrossing. You can hear every little effect, as if you were listening to it in person. It was brilliant.

Mid – A- // The mids were a solid A+, right up until the drums kicked in. At this point, the mid sound range muddied up ever so slightly, leaving me wishing for just a smidge more clarity.

Low – A+ //  With all of the low-end that goes into this track, it’s no surprise that it drew an A+ here. The A40′s delivered a completely satisfying low-frequency  to me, with the drums, bass, and lower-frequency string instruments really bringing the power to the track.

 

Movies

 

Inception – Blu Ray – 9/10

Another highly enjoyable experience. I found there to be no lack of clarity for the highs and lows here, with the highs also being extremely bright, and the lows bringing the thump. The mids, as has been the case, sounded great, until things begin to get hectic on screen.

Once we get into the range of full-blown chaos in the movie, you begin to quickly lose mid-range clarity, and venture into the realm of muddiness. On a side note, the 7.1 virtual surround sound, sounded amazing here. The voice and sound cue placements were nearly spot-on.

 

Between the Buried and Me – Colors Live – 9.5/10

A concert well worth seeing for those who like music that ventures into all different realms of sound. Overall the album sounded amazing, with the only way it could sound better is if I was sitting in the front-row. Again, the 7.1 sound placement was great.

 

Games

 

PC

Tech Steam Mobile Logo600 Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

 

Far Cry 3 - 10/10

You’ve never played Far Cry 3 if you haven’t played it in surround sound. I never knew there was so much vibrancy in the sound of this title. Sure stereo headsets give you crisp and clear audio, which is extremely important, but with the Astro A40′s, you’re getting more than just crisp and clear audio. You’re also getting exact sound placement, making the entire jungle come to life. Whether it’s the sounds of birds chirping, soldiers driving on the road, or a pesky komodo dragon sneaking up behind you, the sound is always spot on, bringing the island of hell to life!

 

Crysis – 10/10

You can basically read what’s above and get the same gist. (minus the komodo dragons, although it would be cool to go strength mode and punch one in the face) Crysis has never sounded so good. I did play Crysis when it first came out on a 7.1 surround sound stereo system, and it sounded amazing, but the quality that you get from this headset is just as equal.

Whether you’re fighting Koreans or Aliens, nothing is lacking, with all frequencies being sharp and the sound placement being spot on.

 

Xbox 360

xbox 360 logo black Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

Halo 4 – 10/10

Halo 4 is the shining example of what the Xbox 360 is capable of. That one last hurrah, for a system that has long out-lived its predecessor. Anything less than the experience I received with the Astro A40′s in Halo 4 would’ve been a letdown.

Everything here was amazing. Enemy fire is lively and powerful, with the orchestral score absolutely soaring here. This was definitely the way Halo 4 was made to be played, that I have no doubt.

 

Red Dead Redemption9/10

Ironically, getting a game that scored a 9 here was actually a letdown. There’s nothing wrong with Red Dead on the Astro A40′s. The experience just wasn’t nearly as engrossing as Halo 4. Perhaps that was due to the sound placement, which wasn’t entirely 100% spot on, or perhaps it was just the lack of high-end clarity here.

I would wager that those issues are a problem with the title, and not the headset, since those are going against the norm of what I experienced throughout my testing.

 

Playstation 3

 ps3 logo Astro A40 Audio System 2013 Edition Review

Dark Souls – 8.5/10

Ok, perhaps it is the headset. Dark Souls sound so flat with the Astro A40′s. No matter if I went 7.1 or stereo, no matter if I went with any of the four different EQ’s, this game just sounded flat… In the end, it doesn’t really matter. As flat as it was, it was still the clearest and crispest flat audio you’ve ever heard.

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – 9.5/10

A return to form. Something tells me that I need to either drop the Souls series from my testing, or find a new title entirely, because Black Ops 2 sounds amazing with the A40′s. As somebody who enjoys winning. (duh) I had an absolute blast playing Black Ops 2 with this headset. They picked up the sound of footsteps so well that I actually could anticipate the enemies coming before they even knew I was there.

Normally I play Black Ops 2 on my 7.1 sound system, and that’s a great experience, but nothing is more engrossing than the Astro A40′s pumping 7.1 surround sound into your ear canals. The sound placement was just as spot-on as my sound system, with the footsteps being accentuated thanks to the EQ settings on the MixAmp PRO.

 

Microphone Quality – 6/10

The black sheep  of this deal. In case you didn’t read the First Impressions section, I’ll include that info here as well.

As for the mic, this is another hit-or-miss scenario. At times, my teammates on Vent would say that I sounded absolutely amazing, with the microphone being sharp, crisp, and clear, along with background noise being cancelled out.. Other times, I still came in crisp, and sharp, with the background noise cancelled out, but apparently I sounded like a robot.. I tested the microphone with some self-recording, and came to the same conclusion they did. At times the microphone sounds professional-grade, while other times it gives me some weird distortion.

Obviously I went in and made sure that all effects were disabled and whatnot, but it didn’t make a difference. My voice consistently came out nice and loud, with background noise being cancelled out extremely well. (a feat made more impressive by the fact that my brother-in-law sits behind me yelling into his mic the entire gaming session) The problem was with what I sounded like.

 

Build Quality - 8.5/10

Same as above.

The build quality worried me initially, thanks to them being entirely plastic, but I can report confidently that this headset is very well-built, and can take a beating and keep on going. The black finish on the headset is, luckily, not a fingerprint magnet, and doesn’t chip away either. Sadly I cannot say the same for the MixAmp PRO. No, don’t worry, it didn’t chip! It’s just a massive fingerprint magnet. You have to wipe it down at least every other day if you want it to continue looking awesome.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Conclusion

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

What a ride. We shot some aliens, terrorists, mercenaries, and komodo dragons, all before dinner time. We went deep inside our own minds, listened to some dub step, heavy metal, and even orchestral pieces, while also finding the time to play cowboy and commando…

The Astro A40′s let me do everything I wanted to do, with a level of quality that I have yet to see be matched. The comfort of the headset while gaming is perfect, and the control of voice and game volume is a feature I’m not sure how I’ve lived without up until now.

Sure there were a few bumps in the road, like the mic not nearly living up to the quality of the headset and MixAmp, as well as a few of the tests feeling lackluster in the end.  But when it was all said and done, the Astro A40′s came, saw, and conquered everything I threw at them.

Would I recommend the A40′s to you guys? Absolutely! Just be aware that at $249.99, they are not cheap. The complaints I’ve heard about sound quality are completely untrue in my opinion. I found everything about this headset to be amazing when it comes to sound quality, except for the time or two that the mids decided to muddy up on me, but that happens.

I would not recommend these to you without the MixAmp though. I can tell you without a doubt that this MixAmp is what carries this package. I’m sure on their own the headset sounds good, but this MixAmp will carry any headset into the range of amazing. 

Overall, this package is worth the price of admission, even if the microphone is a huge letdown. If you’re in the market for a professional-grade GAMING headset, this is the way to go. And don’t mistake that, these are for GAMING. They work perfectly fine for music and movies, but in overall, this is a package marketed towards gaming, and that’s what they’re graded on for the most part.

The microphone is sadly going to hold these back from a Gold award.. This normally wouldn’t be the case, but because these are geared towards competitive gaming, the microphone is just as important as the headset itself, and since this microphone let me down, it also let the rest of this amazing bundle down as well.

UPDATE: Instead of altering the entire review, I’m going to give an update here. After the review was posted, Astro informed me of the latest (wasn’t out at the time I tested the headset) firmware for the headset that was supposed to fix the issues I had with the microphone. After installing and testing the microphone again, I was greeted by a warm and natural sound instead of the robotic effects I was getting before. With that said, the headset has been upgraded to the Gold Award that it most definitely deserves!

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

A quick explanation of the award system. We have the main award category with three awards; Bronze (Good Overall Product), Silver (Great Overall Product), and Gold (Excellent/Near Perfect Overall Product) as the highest. Then we have two different Sub-Categories, Internal Hardware Awards for performance; Yellow (Low-End Performer), Orange (Mid-Range Performer), and Red (High-End Performer) as the highest. The third and final Sub-Category is for both Internal Hardware and External Peripherals; Black (Enthusiast/Gamer Qualities), Blue (Exceptional Build and Design), Green (Terrific Dollar To Performance Ratio), White (Innovative But Flawed)

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Pros:

  • Amazing Sound Quality In 7.1
  • Build Quality Is Durable, Even If It Is Plastic
  • Ability To Put Mic On Either Side Is Great
  • Plenty Of Attachment Options On The MixAmp PRO
  • MixAmp PRO Gives An Amazing Amount Of Control Over Your Game/Voice Volumes
  • Pro, Core, And Media EQ Settings Sound Great
  • Headset Is Extremely Comfortable
  • Microphone Is Crisp And Loud, While Cancelling Background Noise Really Well
  • Audio And Build Quality Is A Steal At $249.99

 

Cons:

  • Microphone Makes Me Sound Like A Robot 50% Of The Time
  • Exposed Ear-Cup Cables Freak Me Out
  • Mids Have A Tendency To Muddy When There Is A Lot Going On In Music And Movies (Not An Issue With Games)
