Why I purchased the 2 year replacement plan for 14.99. Bestbuy let's you swap out for a new pair. No hassle.

 

You can just add this at the time of pickup, right?

Yep. They give you until the return period to add it.

If anyone grabbed an extra pair and would help a borther out that would be swell.

 

Just DM me, looking forward to these!

I have a pair awaiting pickup but I just don’t m ow if I should. I have a turtle beach elite 800 that I never use but I am expecting a baby shortly though so I’m thinking I may use a headset more just to keep the noise down. Thoughts?

Try them out, there worth it. Great sound quality and tons of options to tune them to your liking. There the most comfortable headphones I've ever used. (Previous gen). People hate on the 300 price tag but they are quality. At 100, you wont find better.

Grabbed three to gift for the holidays. Not a fan of the headset myself, but can’t complain for the price. Thanks OP!

You should definitely get them especially if you are going to need to be quiet soon with the baby. They are amazing and you got them at a steal of a price.

Looks like you can just buy the Xbox Base for these if you want to use them on there, on sale for $75 on the astro website. https://www.astrogam...SE_color=Green#

I kind of assumed this model would work on a Xbox and you only needed a base if you wanted to use your headset for multiple consoles. Am I wrong?

Really wish I had the stones to drop a grand on these to resell like some of these Ebay flippers. Alas. More power to em I guess!

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


I have a more stupid question. I just found my old Astro A40 with mix amp in my basement but it is for my Xbox 360. Will that still work for the Xbox one? Haven’t had a chance to try to hook it up yet.

Any chance they cancel after they send the ready for pickup email? I was going to be there when they opened but I wont be able to until later.

I currently use a pair of A40's with the older mixamp. Works fine for just audio, but I don't have the headset chat adapter for the controller so I can't use voice chat.

 

I kind of assumed this model would work on a Xbox and you only needed a base if you wanted to use your headset for multiple consoles. Am I wrong?

 

The headset itself is identical between both the PS4/Xbox versions, it's just that the base stations enable full functionality of the the chat portion of the headset. You can have a single headset and a base station of each console if you want a fully functional headset between both consoles.

 

I'm cheap as shit and don't use voice chat so I'll just use the PS4 base station for both consoles and swap the optical cables when I want to switch between them.

People on SD are reporting successful pickups, not sure if they can do anything after it's marked "Ready for Pickup?"

Holy crap the build quality and sound are amazing on these things, huge upgrade from my old ones. Being wireless is another plus. I haven't tested the mic yet though, I'll do that later when my friends get on.

 

Thanks again for posting OP you're a damn legend lol

Anyone grab more than one and would be willing to sell? Willing to pay shipping as well.

Worth a shot lol. Need a pair to replace my Sony Golds that are too tight on my head and give me a headache.

For anyone that missed out, these aren't that good. Check the amazon reviews.
