Astro unveils the next generation A40 headset

Astro has announced a new version of its beloved A40’s the A40 TR, along with the MixAmp Pro TR and the new MixAmp M80, all designed to help people elevate their in game audio experience, from a person at home to the most demanding of professional gamers.

For loud environments such as pro tournaments, gamers can transform the A40 TR to a closed-back noise-isolating headset by adding a Mod Kit (sold separately), which features closed-back Speaker Tags, synthetic leather ear cushions and headband, and a voice-isolating microphone.
