They also make a new version specifically for the xbox one (the mixamp is the chat adapter) for only $200http://www.astrogaming.com/a40-headset/A40-HEADSET-ASTRO-GEN2-XB1.html?dwvar_A40-HEADSET-ASTRO-GEN2-XB1_color=a****eal
I agree with blaster... Go big now so you dont have to go small 2-3 times before going big.
You'll save money in the long run
EDIT: For comfort reference - I'm 6ft tall and have a pretty large head - My hat size is 7 3/4 - 8 depending on the fit.
The only downside to this astro a40 (The xbox one exclusive) is that its not surround sound so its that that great when it comes to
hearing where the noise is coming from hence why they're $50 cheaper.
From what I heard, the $250 astros are surround sounds which makes a huge difference. Esp with games like CoD if you wanna hear your enemies footstep directions and boosts.
I have the a40 with the mix amp and used a wide range of Turtle beach, triton, $ony and M$ headsets
Surround sound adds to the experience but it doesnt make a "huge difference" in your ability to play the game... IMO it adds more to immersive games like far cry then it does CoD.
I Play CoD (already over 100hrs on AW) on my a40 w/ mixamp (surround sound) vs. my Turtle beach XO sevens provides no gameplay
The A40's w/ the mixamp do have a superior sound due to surround sound, but you're not only paying $50 more... you also have to pay for the XB1 Chat adapter... Also the setup is wire city
if surround sound means u have to deal with ~6 wires + adapters then i highly recommend the xb1 one that is all inclusive
