Background and Identification ¶ 

The Astro A40 Gen2 was released on November 1, 2013 and comes with an over-the-ear headset, cables for connecting the headset to the Mixamp, and the Mixamp to the console, and a MixAmp pro. The Astro A40 Gen2 has game and voice audio balancing, customizable speaker tags, a multi-system compatibility, and can stream audio output.

In addition, the headset contains a Dolby 7.1 surround sound system that can exert frequencies from 20Hz to 21kHz, allowing you to hear everything within human hearing frequency range. The detachable microphone can exert a frequency range of 70Hz to 15kHz, meaning you will be able to talk with the highest and lowest pitch voices a human can provide.

Although the Astro A40 Gen2 headset and MixAmp Pro might seem similar to other Astro headsets, this system is the only version that is not wireless . Therefore, you can identify this device by its long wires connected to everything. Unlike the older versions of A40 Mixamps with 2 buttons, this version has 3.
