Gaming A40 Headset + MixAmp Pro TR Black (PC/PS4, 3AS4T-AGU9N-506)Astro Gaming is a relatively young brand and was founded as an offshoot of an award-winning design studio in San Francisco, California. Thanks to its technologically advanced products and unique design, Astro Gaming quickly established itself in the gaming sector.
The fusion of technology, lifestyle and design is the declared goal of Astro Gaming. The range of products, from headphones for high-end audio systems to the ultimate gaming headset, has everything that makes the heart of an audiophile beat faster. Both in design and production Astro Gaming plays in the league of the greats.
The black Astro Gaming A40 TR gaming headset is suitable for both pro and casual gamers, offering one thing in addition to its design and high wearing comfort: fantastic sound. The 7.1 surround sound is achieved with the help of the included MixAmp Pro and offers every gamer a new dimension of playing.
The high wearing comfort is on the one hand a result of the weight; With 360g, the A40 is one of the spring weights of gaming headsets, on the other hand the good padding and the flexible frame. The headband is as generously padded as the ear cups that cover the entire ear.
The headphones have a frequency response of 20 to 24,000 hertz. The distortion is less than one percent and the nominal impedance is 48 ohms. The dynamic transducers work open and the ear cups cover the entire ear. However, these dry numbers only allow for the legendary sound quality of the Astro Gaming A40.
The microphone is equipped with unidirectional noise-canceling and can be attached through the exchangeable connections both left and right. Alternatively, the A40 can be used without a microphone. If you want to connect the headset to a mobile device via the 4-pin jack plug you have the choice between the simple cable and a cable with integrated in-line microphone.
A USB splitter cable is included for the connection with the PC, alternatively the four-pole 3.5 mm jack connection can be used. In addition to the PC, the Astro Gaming A40 TR gaming headset is compatible with the Xbox One and mobile devices such as smartphones. For maximum sound experience, the A40 TR can be connected to the Astro Gaming MixAmp Pro TR.
In addition to the PC, the MixAmp Pro can be connected to most game consoles via TOSlink and USB and extends the sound experience of the A40 by 7.1 surround sound. This upgrade not only offers pro gamers many advantages, but also allows cinemas to play eg Blu-Rays with 7.1 surround sound.
In addition to a streaming port for livestreaming, the MixAmp Pro comes with four different audio profiles. These are the pro mode for playing under competitive conditions, the core mode, which is the standard mode, the media mode for movies and music as well as the LAN mode.
The LAN mode is similar to the Pro mode and has a custom microphone setting for very noisy environments. This mode is intended primarily for major gaming events. For the smaller private network sessions, you can connect multiple MixAmp Pros directly to an audio network.
The package includes an A40 TR headset, a MixAmp Pro TR and a two-meter headphone cable, a three-meter TOSlink cable and micro-USB cable, and a one-meter cable to connect multiple MixAmp Pros.
