Great review. As an owner of Astro A40's, I agree with Linus's stand on the mic. It's nice seeing this review and the future ones since the A50's get compared to other wireless headsets. I, however, would like to add something. The A50's 2013 edition came out late 2012, so they're pretty old tech. The BF4 Ed. came out late 2013, but they only changed the color scheme, not the specs. The price tag's a huge factor in this purchase, but if you're one who can look past it, you'd be owning one set of goddamn, badass looking headsets with pretty good sound quality. I own the Orange NCS edition A40's. They look hot as fk.
