ASTRO Gaming A40 Headset + Mixamp M80 – Halo 5 Special Edition for Xbox One

The result of a deep collaboration between ASTRO, 343 Studios and Xbox, the A40 headset and MixAmp M80 feature colors, materials and finishes that match the Halo 5 Xbox One console and controller.  In online team-based games, no game can be won without proper communication. One of the first things you are going to notice is that most of the online games do have a built in feature that allows users to chat by using their microphones, in order to successfully build their strategies and update each other on new events.

It is almost considered mandatory for players who enjoy such games to have a headset, but even more than that it is important for the headset to provide superior microphone quality and still have great sound to offer.
