Dammit. I really don't need these, and really don't need to spend the money. But, I've been eyeing some Astros for awhile.

Do these work better with the Mixamp?

They were on sale for 225 (instead of 300) on Black Friday so must be a mistake

Ordered! Thanks op

Best price I've ever seen on these. The xbox one version is still 225. Really hoping bestbuy honors these, placed 1 for store pickup as well.

Also wondering if you purchase the 2 year replacement plan, will they replace with a new version of the a50s or will they just give you a 100 gift card? For 14.99, it's a no brainer if they'll swap out for a new one in 2 years.

These are on sale for the same price on google express. You might be able to use the holiday18 promo code to get them for less.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but will these work with the Xbox One also?

You get those from Best Buy for $9 on that glitch back in the day?  How long did they last you?

I think the Xbox One version comes with a cable to enable chat? I don't use voice chat on my Xbox One anyway and the base station just needs an optical input so it should work for both consoles just fine for audio.

Yep, I got them from BB for $9, and they still work great. The plastic on the mic broke so it's just dangling.

Also wondering how much better than the Gold these are. Seriously don't need em right now but for $200+ dollars off, I figure why not. Can always return them if I hate myself too much!

depending on the size of the store they may have a small crew working overnights for merchandising and stocking.  To bad they wont let you in though.

I have the Astro A40's and the PS Gold's.  I like my gold's but my Astro's have much more clarity and definition.
