Astros A30?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
How do these sound with regards to music quality? I've read around that the gaming sound quality is very good, and that music sounds alright on them, but I'd like an opinion from someone who actually owns them.

Oh, and thanks for reading.

they're designed for gaming, with directional audio and artificial bass in mind.

not music. i would not recommend these if you are after an exceptional audio experience.

Well, the thing is, I need a good headphone for mainly gaming (read: has a mic) and I'll likely be using it for music sometimes. I'm not looking for a music oriented headphone, but something that works well for the price.
