At the end of the day, we'd be hard put to find any significant problems with the MixAmp 5.8. ... With support for a number of different headphones and earbuds, user preference is maintained. More than anything else, the MixAmp 5.8 sounds absolutely fantastic and has incredible range.

Overall, Astro's Mixamp 5.8 works as advertised -- you get to use your corded cans without having wires stretched across your living room. Plus, it's compatible with consoles, computers, cable boxes, and pretty much anything else putting out audio through a standard Toslink connector. It delivers great audio, but in return it requires strapping something the size of a 90's flip phone to your waist to work.
