They're very similar to the 5hv2's, based on a similar design, with a number of improvements, from what I've seen. The spectrum speaker is one step up in quality, they're more lightweight (hard to believe, I know), and they're also more durable in terms of twisting/compressing/throwing.

I've never heard of 5hv2 mic problems outside of people not being good with the mic directionality. Who do you know had problems with their mic?

Thanks for the explanation.

I will seriously think about getting a pair.

nice review, and honestly i don't see the no voice feedback as a con at all. as a PC gamer i never have had voice feedback using vent (unless someone has their speakers up really loud >.<) or any other voice chat; i actually think it is distracting to hear myself talk. (maybe that is due to the slight delay, i dunno how it is on xbox) So in all honestly, you have sold me well on this product. Im gonna buy a pair b/c i hate that stupid dinky one you get with your xbox.

They don't have a hard release date as of yet. I believe they'll be available within the week.

Sick review.....I haven't decided what headphones to get yet :( Currently i use Senny 515s lol. I like astros because of the team speakertag idea. PC 350s because I have heard SO many good things about them, and lastly these look solid as well. IDK what to do :(

I'm sure this has been asked 19022890902 times, but...

is this headset compatible with the Astro A40 Mixamp, both online and on LAN? Do the required cords come with the purchase, or do you have to buy them separately?

Yes, I currently only use the Spectrums with the mixamp. Wise if you want to use them with the A40 mixamp you will need to use the mic cable that comes with the A40s. Just use all the cables from the Astros and use the Spectrums is the perfect combo.
