Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro 2019 Design

The Astro A40 TR have a minimalist and at the same time striking design. They are completely black, which helps bring out the details. The metallic brackets and the blue used for the branding details, make them combine perfectly with the aesthetics of the PS4 Pro.

In the same way, as Astro has accustomed us, the headset is completely customizable, and in the United States for about $ 60 USD, the “Mod Kits” can be purchased.

In general, they feel comfortable and have the right weight, built with high quality materials and very resistant. Both the ear cushions and the headband have the necessary amount of memory foam, covered by a synthetic leather so that they do not tighten too much and give a pleasant sensation when used for several hours.

The pads completely cover the ears and create a good isolation, that you can hardly hear what is going on around you, although it is not the same as “Noise Canceling”.

MixAmp and news

The large slider controls the overall volume, while the small knob prioritizes the audio you want to hear, be it chat or video game. In between, there are four LED indicators corresponding to the EQ presets and a button to switch from digital audio to Dolby Audio. The only drawback is that it does not have an on / off button for the LEDs, which is a bit annoying if the player likes to play with the lights off.

On the back of the MixAmp are all the connection ports, the classic 3.5 mm, a port for streaming, mini USB, Optical and two special “Daisy Chain” outputs to connect several MixAmp to each other. It can be confusing the first time to use it, but the use of each outlet on the box is very well detailed, making installation a breeze.


The Astro A40 is a headphone that does the job perfectly, the bass is rich and the high tones sound good. The way in which the headphones are attached produces an immersive sound, which is not a minor detail.

When putting them to the test in multiplayer games, we were pleasantly surprised, the explosions and the sounds of the movements are clear, this helps to better position and hear the movements of the rivals. But still, it must be said that its price is very high compared to similar options.


Now, when used with the MixAmp, everything improves. Increase sounds significantly, its four presets are of great help depending on the use that is being given, whether you need strong bass without distortion or you use it to listen to music.

Being able to mix voice / game is very important for online players. If what you want is to enjoy games like God of War or The Last of Us at its best, the Dolby audio function enhances the sounds even more, producing the feeling of being in the game in a way that no sound system could match. easily.
