XBOX ONE COMPATIBILITY
Our headsets will all deliver Dolby® Digital GAME AUDIO on the Xbox One, just like they do for the Xbox 360. However, the chat connector on the controller is now a proprietary connector, meaning that our current products will require an adapter to connect to the controller for Xbox Live voice chat. Fortunately, until this chat adapter is available, the built-in Kinect microphone will provide full voice communication access to Xbox Live while using ASTRO headsets on the Xbox One.
ASTRO headsets are fully compatible with PS4 once the Firmware 1.50 update has been applied to the console. Our headsets will deliver Dolby® Digital 5.1 and 7.1 game audio and full voice chat functionality over the PlayStation Network.
ASTRO MixAmps lets you adjust your game-to-voice balancing, choose from up to 4 different EQ modes (2013 ed. only) made for gaming/media, and link multiple MixAmps together for a lag-free private voice network.
CUSTOMIZABLE SPEAKER TAGS
Change-up your style on the A40 or A30 headsets with our magnetic Speaker Tag system. Or, customize your setup by designing your tags at our online Speaker Tag Customizer
DOLBY DIGITAL 7.1®
Plug into an ASTRO MixAmp and immerse yourself in the audio of your favorite games. Use every gunshot and footstep to pinpoint exactly where the fight is and get the drop on your opponents before they hear you.
ASTRO MixAmps ensure compatibility with any major platform you choose to game on. Whether you're gaming on a PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, or a mobile platform ASTRO has you covered.
SWAPPABLE CABLE SYSTEM
The new Mobile Cable plugs directly into the headset via a 3.5mm 4-pole jack and offers an in-line microphone, an in-line mute switch, a volume control wheel, and a call/pickup/tracking button.

"*9.7 – Amazing (out of 10)"
“A30 is by no means a cheap endeavor, but in our opinion, every dollar spent is matched with high quality components, top-tier audio performance, and a level of unique style seldom seen in gaming headphones.”
"*The 100 best gadgets of the Complex Decade"
“The A30s previously made it onto our Best Of Year list because of its amazing sound quality—watching movies on our iPad using the A30s was sick—and its comfort. ASTRO outfitted the A30s with extremely soft ear pads covered in some sort of felt-like material. The end result is a pair of headphones you won't mind wearing all-day.”
“..the detachable boom microphone and additional in-line mic with call answer/music pause button let the A30 double as a smartphone headset.”
“…as a gaming headset it was compelling and comfortable enough to use whenever we booted up our PS3 or 360.”
