Have been using my A50s for about 5 years now. Have used it hooked up to almost every console, the one I have works with Xbox One if you hook it up through the controller and ps4/pc through USB.

I hated my A40s (for XB1) but that's still a good price 👏🤙 Sound wasn't as pronounced as my much cheaper Turtle Beach XOONE's.

A40's are wired with a seperate mixer box that is also wired to your console/PC. A50's have a wireless base station and you need the appropriate version for your console.

Not sure about the A40s, but the A50s are not the latest models that came out in August this year. They are previous year's models.

Still a better deal on them than elsewhere.

If I dont have an Xbox One, but have a PC, Switch and PS4, is the PS4 version the best option?

Yeah, the A50s are Gen 3 and not the latest Gen 4s. Although there isn't a huge difference.

Do these still have reliability issues? There's a few people I know who had Astro headsets at some point and they've all broke on them after a year or two of use

If I have to hook it up to the controller then how is it wireless?

I thought the Gen4 was meant to have a much improved mic? I have the A50 Gen 3 and the mic is quite poor quality, friends always complain when I use it. So I mainly use my older HyperX Cloud Alpha even tho it's wired.

Those aren't the A40 Gen 4 either.

I've read people just upgraded their MixAmp Pro which is the main product anyways right?
