I just got a pair of Plantronics Rig 800lx. True wireless headphones for the Xbox one, EXTREMELY light and comfortable on the head. Comes with a code for the dolby atmos xbox app so you can get simulated atmos soundscape for every game.

I love the damn thing, def recommend

If these are actually manufacturer refurbs and in great condition, this is a great deal. I got my A40s with Mixamp new for $65 a few years ago by chance, would jump on this if I needed it.

These appear to be a 2014 model with wired chat and non charging base

FYI these are not 100% wireless for xbox one, they have a chat cable.

I had the gen 1 of these and they were "OK" IMO. I have the TB stealth that they dont even make anymore. I also like chat feedback (where you can hear yourself when you talk) and the astros don't AFAIK, the ones i had didnt. I was interested in Lucid Sound's newest headset but reviews TBD. I would recommend a TB headset that connects directly to the xbox itself without an amp or base station. A new line just came out.

I have a tendency to keep buying headsets, its a problem i have lol.

No wireless chat... not worth the money IMO. Old tech = money that could be better spent investing in new tech. Not trying to TC. Great price for what you're getting. Just need to be okay with having wireless headphones that plug into your controller. That's not wireless to me. TU to the OP.

I have just the ASTRO A40's without the MixAmp, and they are fantastic. Very comfortable headphones, and the sound quality is great. I use them on PC. just had to get a few adapter cables.

People say this but I don't know how. I just recently bought a used pair of gen2's, but my 2013 a40's are still in perfect working condition. Worst thing that happened to them was a screw backed out, but I just put some blue loctite on it and screwed it back in.

Also FWIW I bought the new A50s from Astro the day they came out, and they got bricked by the first firmware update after a bunch of problems. The nice thing about the gen2 wired mixamps is you can use optical audio for xb1 and ps4. I use mine with two different PC's as well, with a cheap optical audio splitter.

I've tried lots of different headsets, but always end up going back to A40s. They just work, and you can buy used headsets with no accessories off eBay for less than $30 usually.
