Headset choices?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sup people,

I own 2 pairs of tritton's, they suck anyway, I just want to know your thoughts on the Astro A40's 2013 edition?

I own a ps3, xbox and pc so I need a headset that is cross platform hence the "Gaming" headset.

I'm not after AKG sounding stuff just nice enough you know?

Question: Should I get the Astro A40's or even the A50's? they are only $30 more and th\e only difference is wireless.

or should I wait for the next gen consoles (assuming they are being released soon) and see what companies offer?

I have just been trawling the astro forums to find so many people complaining about issues with the headset. So there goes that.

I need these;

  • A 5.1 headset at minimum
  • Cross platform (PS3, XBOX & PC) IF POSSIBLE (IF NOT DONT WORRY)
  • Good construction
  • Good sound
  • Under $320 AUD (just so you know the a50's are $350 here in aus so anything less than the a50's anywhere else I suppose)
  • EXCELLENT REVIEWS WITH PRODUCT TESTING AKA YOU HAVE USED IT (I'm sick of the tritton's they were promised to be good and they where, for the 1st day and then the mix went)

Thanks smile.gif
