Dopo 5 anni di Sony 2.0, ho deciso di cambiarle, ma non trovavo mai quella caratteristica che volevo ci fosse a tutti i costi presenti sugli headset, ovvero l'audio chat e gioco regolabili indipendentemente, e qua oltre ad aver trovato questa caratteristica, ho trovato delle cuffie di altissima qualità design fatto molto bene, con materiali misto tra plastica robusta e alluminio e padiglioni ruotabili a 180°. La comodità delle cuffie è fantastica le metti e non ti accorgi di averle addosso anche per 3, 4 ore, i comandi per regolare le cuffie sul mix amp pro sono sempre a portata di mano e posso dirlo è una goduria girare le due rotelle in alluminio.
Cuffie molto professionali regolabili anche tramite il PC, collegandoci il mix amp pro, si posso settare tutte le caratteristiche dalle varie frequenze che compongono l'audio, al microfono ovvero sentite il ritorno in cuffia del microfono o la potenza che deve avere.
Niente per me queste cuffie dal punto di vista del gioco non hanno niente che non vanno, sono complete al 100% magari a qualcuno da fastidio il cavo che dev'essere sempre collegato, ma a me non da per nulla fastidio.
Mi raccomando se avete 10 minuti guardate il video dove spiego nel dettaglio le cuffie, componenti come collegarle alla ps4 e al pc(per gli aggiornamenti) e tante informazioni che io al momento della collegamento e funziomento non sapevo, ma che piano piano ho scoperto, detto ciò. Ciao a tutti.
Sadly, being a Mac user, Astro have yet to make the Astro Command Centre software for this version available yet - at the moment its Windows 10 only. Sadly this meant I couldn't adjust mic or audio settings. From the factory, the mic noise gate isn't suitable for me (too much noise reduction) and the audio lacks sparkle. Used with a set of Sennheiser PC373D (essentially Game One/PC37x) the mic and audio were significantly poorer than using a similarly priced Creative G6. I tested on a PS4 Pro.
Wanted to really like this but if you're on PS4 and in the market for a audio device like this and have your own headset/headphones - the G6 is a far better sounding option to my ears.
**Update - MAC software now released so have been able to change the Mic noise gate. Most of my thoughts still remain though - in summary, the layout of the controls, build quality etc is a great step forwards. Audio wise - neither the mic audio quality or game audio quality are in the same league as the Creative G6 - on a PS4 Pro. The Mixamp is a more convenient option though (Voice/Game Mix for example on device) so I guess it boils down to what your priority is?
Set up is easy
Even after a few days speaking to Astro we couldn’t fix the issue of no game sound.
Seems to be a Mixamp fault.
Even a replacement Optical Cable didn’t resolve it.

Als Vergleich dienen Beyerdynamic 880, Aiaiai TMA-2, alte AKGs, Creative H5/7 und die Steelseries Arctis Pro.
Im Vergleich zum vorherigen Mixamp gefällt mir das Design sehr viel besser, klanglich hat sich am mixamp wenig getan, er rauscht etwas weniger und das Dolby Audio klingt etwas anders. Ob besser oder schlechter möchte ich nicht beurteilen, Surround auf Headphones ist so ne Glaubensfrage, es stört zumindest nicht mit Audio Artefakten und bei pve Spielen kann die Soundstage durchaus größer werden. Für pvp, naja, kann man, muss man aber nicht.
Das Headset an sich klingt aber m.M.n. sehr viel besser als die alte Version und ist in den Höhen sehr schön offen und erlaubt gute Ortung im Multiplayer.
Im Vergleich zu meinen anderen Headphones:
- als Gaming Headset für mich mit den Creative definitiv die Nummer 1. Sitzt gut, klingt gut!
- im Vergleich zu dem ähnlich teuren Arctis Pro um Meilen besser, ich kann dem Arctis zwar nichts wirklich ankreiden aber irgendwie passt es für mich nicht 100%.
Negativ: wie immer bei Astro sind die Sound Presets aus audiophiler Sicht absoluter Müll, da wird der EQ aufgedreht bis Anschlag damit eventuell irgendwie der Gegner etwas früher zu hören ist, mag ja funktionieren, wenn ich davon aber nach 20 Minuten kaputte Ohren hab, kann das auch nicht Sinn der Sache sein.
Zumindest ist jetzt per default auch ein Profil mit flachem EQ programmiert.
- Mikrofon wie bisher top aber immer noch ohne Auto-mute, muss man am Kabel machen.
I think the sound is great for Xbox gaming, music and movie watching. I have an issue with comfort unfortunately. The headsets hurt both of my ears and head around the ears, mainly the left side one – I can feel my ear on yeh speaker driver. It seems like the headset is very comfortable at first and it takes maybe 30 minutes or so to begin to get painful. The top of my head also aches a little with the thin padding and I have no hair at all so that does not help. It also starts to give me a headache, I think. I had considered buying the mod kit but I don’t want to pay another £45+ ish for them when I will only really want to use the ear pads and the top cushion. Anyway, the leather pads do not seem that much thicker than the stock ones. I prefer open backed design and apparently the mic is not as good as the stock one so I expect I would not use the microphone of speaker tags.
Speaking of the microphone. I think it sounds good and it’s useful that it rotates all the way around. I am not bothered it cannot be muted because I attached the headset to the Xbox stereo adaptor which makes it easier to adjust volume and mute the mic (It’s a very good ‘thing’ and if you don’t have the adaptor you should get one).
The cable is rubbery, long and removable but at the top and where the main jack is, is quite long before the cable material starts and it can interfere with clothes I am wearing if they have a high collar. I If turn my head to the left the cable kind of gets in the way because it’s so stiff. I hope that explanation is clear. It’s not too bad though and I could live with that minor issue.
The headset is simple and quick to adjust and finding the right position is easy and the ear cups move a little bit while on your head.
The volume of the headset while listening to music is slightly less loud than HyperX headsets I have tried and I can increase the volume to maximum on my Android phone, but I’d not want to listen to music that loudly. In-game sounds are loud enough and I would not want to play games at max volume as that would be too high. I tried Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos on the Xbox and IMO Windows Sonic sounds better
I expect this headset will be returned to Amazon in the new year because of the comfort issue I have, if the pads were thicker or if there were third-party pads that would fit, I expect I would give them a go and hopefully that would mean I could continue using the headset.
I am disappointed because the headset is pretty good otherwise. Definitely one of the best I’ve tried and I’ve tried a lot!
Interesting fact, there are currently 58 ratings on Amazon and 16 of them are VINE.
