    Hi i really like what i hear about the reviews on the Astro A40 but can't really find much in terms of them being used on xbox one, I know there is a seperate model made specifically for the xbox but does anybody have them?, I've seen a video on youtube (Not sure if i'm aloud to post links) and it shows the comparison between a really bad Reverb/tinny sound on the latest version of the mixamp in comparison to the old.

    Something to do with Dolby, not an error in which astro made themselves. If thats the case with the tinny/Reverb would this be correct if i was to use Dolby Atmos on my xbox with the latest version of the mixamp if i was to buy one?, I just don't want to waste a lot of money buying them if there is going to be problems using them with the xbox.

    Thanks

    I got the a40tr after having tb elite 800x for 2 years. Ill be honest I was happier with the sound quality of the elite. I tried the recommended settings and when using the a40tr mixamp surround mode I lose the ability to pinpoint enemy location and also get that awful reverb echo I have read about. Its super frustrating and I would expect better out of a 250 pair of headphones . I ended up purchasing Dolby atmos and have to play with the surround mode off on the mix amp in order to hear surround sound . tho what I find is that the sound has to be directly ahead of me to sound like it's in front of me .. otherwise the sound quickly sounds like it's on the side . The sound quality isn't that enjoyable when watching movies. I actually get better bass when I plug my earbuds into the mixamp that I got with my galaxy note 9 (you can use any headphones with the mix amp).
    The elites sounded more like Bose headphones whereas these seem to have more higher pitch sounds and less deep base.
