ASTRO Gaming Unveils Fourth Generation A40 & MixAmp Pro TR

As many of you know, there are quite a few of us here at Xbox Addict who love gaming with headphones. We have had the opportunity to review headsets from the likes of Turtle Beach, Victrix, Hyper X, LucidSound, Audio-Tecnica, Seinheiser,  and others. With that being said, it seems that ASTRO Gaming has unveiled their next version of the A40 headset and a refined and new MixAmp.

Now, we won’t lie, we haven’t used an ASTRO headset in a long time, nor reviewed one, lately. So, with that being said, here are the details on the new, or should we say evolved, headset and MixAmp.
