Available in versions starting with a $199 wired PC model, and going all the way up to $279 for a wireless edition that works with gaming consoles, the A40 is one of the best gaming headsets available, with great surround sound, a good mic, and a comfortable fit. If you want to go wireless, however, the new A50 is better alternative to the $279 version, which combines the A40 with Astro's Mixamp base and a belt-based receiver, since the A50 includes the Mixamp and integrates the belt pack into the headset, and sells for just $20 more.
