What are your thoughts? I like the new mix amp. Here is a list of features:
New Quick Disconnect Cabling System: Updated version of the ASTRO Quick Disconnect system, offering the same flexibility of using multiple cable types and lengths, but now plugging directly into the headset via a 3.5mm 4-pole jack instead of the oiriginal mid-cable release. This increases reliability and durability while also making it easier to change to preferred cable lengths and update cables as desired.
Best Sounding ASTRO Headsets Ever: The 2013 Edition ASTRO A40 has re-tuned drivers and enclosures with improved low-end response and less distortion at high volumes making them the most accurate ASTRO headsets ever

Removable Mic System: The ASTRO A40 feature a removable boom mic that can be removed and swapped from ear to ear.
Dolby ® Digital 7.1 Surround Sound: ASTRO 40 headsets deliver pinpoint spatial accuracy and crystal clear definition with Dolby ® Digital 5.1 and 7.1 Surround Sound decoding providing more immersive gaming, movie and music experiences.
Customizable Speaker Tags: ASTRO A40 features a magnetic, removable and customizable Speaker Tag system. Tags can be designed online to create a unique look for teams, clans, guilds or simply for pure personal expression.
