Leading Headset Manufacturer ASTRO has today announced that they will be showcasing the new ASTRO A40 TR X-Edition Headset at E3 2018. The new headset will work on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Mac platforms and will offer a premiere gaming solution for esports gamers, streamers and developers alike.

The full specs of theĀ X-Edition headset aren’t fully known yet with just a teaser released to the press and on social media pages. We expect it will include some extra features given it is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the ASTRO A40.

ASTRO made the news last week by announcing their first ever Nintendo Switch headset. They will begin by launching the ASTRO A10 on the Nintendo Switch with a bunch of different themes, and so far they’ve shown us a beautiful The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild headset.

Check out one style of the new ASTRO A40 TR X-Edition headset on its stand below:

The ASTRO A40 TR headset was originally made in collaboration with esports athletes ensuring every feature of it assists in getting ahead in online competitive gaming. It has also been crafted to fit perfectly over several VR headsets including the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PSVR. The headset has also received Discord certification, making it a choice for plenty of gamers over the past decade.

No pricing has been released yet for the ASTRO A40 TR X-Edition Headset here in Australia, however we can confirm at this stage that it will launch in the Spring 2018 season. As mentioned, the new headset will be available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Mac platforms, and Rocket Chainsaw expects the retail price to be somewhere around the $300-350AUD pricepoint.
