These are Gen 1 refurbs, Gen 2 isn't really any different -- slightly different mic build and microusb instead of miniusb. Gen 3 is coming in August and is a complete retool a la the A40 TR's. They'll have a wireless charging stand/transmitter and replaceable headbands and ear pads.

The sound quality on Astros won't hold a candle to audiophile wired headphones like Audiotechnika, etc. But for $100 these'll be vastly better than similarly priced wireless sets from competitors like Turtle Beach.

Would these be a step up or down from my audiotechnica ad700?

Wait...didn't Turtle Beach buy the Astros company and just keep the brand name running?

Ooops sorry, it was SkullCandy that bought out Astro back in 2011.

Xbox One - connecting the headset to your controller's 2.5mm jack is required to utilize the boom mic.

These were released before the PS4, so how would they hook up to it?

Obligatory A50 post about the sound when using the microphone.

When the microphone is down and transmitting (you are talking or picking up background noise), these headphones have a buzzing in the right ear cup that can't be stopped.

Some people don't hear it or are not bothered by it due to game sounds being louder. Personally I had a pair of these at one point and had to return them because it drove me crazy.
