  • Great sound with one problem.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by frankcastle - November 2, 2016

    Walked in and purchased these after being disappointed with the Turtle Beach 800x headset. I had had Astros before, and the sound just wasn't as good. Setup was easy. Just an Optical and USB to your Xbox, Place the headset in the base and it PAIRS automatically. Easy! The Sound is very nice. If you like the Crack of Gunfire, and the Boom of explosions, this headset is for you. The 7.1 Surround works as advertised. The only problem that kept these from 5 stars is.....The Mic. I am told that I sound like I am Calling in to a Radio Station. Very poor Mic Quality. Even though, I still say these are the best sounding "GAMING" headset on the market.

  • Best Headset by Far
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Army2willis - March 10, 2018

    When I bought this headset, I already owned 2 previous sets of Astro head gear and new the quality and customization that sets it standards by. What i did not expect was for the headset to have that Abode atmos feel. Hearing things like the cursor moving on the Xbox home page but, instead of hearing it from the headphones it felt like it was coming from somewhere else. Talk about 3d sound. The comfort level, Customization, Sound that beats Beats by Apple, flip the mic up to mute, and wireless too. I can truely say that once you Go astro you will have new standards. NOTE if buying this headset you need to get the warranty because it is expensive.

  • Good sound and on sale
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Freestuff - July 10, 2019

    I picked these up as a replacement for turtle beach 800 elites, sound is good out of the box but you have to load the Astro app on your computer and update your headset then the sound can be fine tuned. They are comfortable but ear covers and head padding is low end but of course they will sell you a upgraded set of pads. The boom mic works well, just have to adjust to correct distance to mouth. Of course they are still new to me but good so far. The instruction manual is lacking and they only send one micro usb cable but you need two so you don’t have to keep removing the one they give you from base and gaming system so you can update headphones
