ASTRO Gaming’s recently released Wireless MixAmp 5.8 and A*Star In-Ear Headsets were just highlighted in the latest issue of USA Today and their Technology Live blog.
No surprises here…they loved em.
“The Wireless MixAmp ($100; www.astrogaming.com) from premium video game equipment maker Astro provides wireless connectivity between your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 to nearly all headphones, something that keeps the living room or den looking neat. Simply connect the wireless connector to your audio receiver and the headphones to the MixAmp unit and players get 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound.
Using its belt clip, you can attach the MixAmp and play fully wirelessly during new Microsoft Kinect and Sony PlayStation Move games. Astro’s new Blade Runner-esque looking In-Ear Headset ($80) usuable with the system, also has a sound baffling microphone so if you happen to use them outside the home, your cellphone calls come in clearer.”
