To make a long story short, I have the Astro A40's. I bought the mixamp as a solution to the poor sound quality from the mobo, but it really didn't help out much. I have a strong preference to sound quality, whether that is from a $50 headset up to $300. The A40's just do not cut it at all (my original $30 headphones I bought when I built my PC was almost comparable). I do have a sound card that has substantially helped since I can adjust the EQ levels.
From what you have used in the past, were there any brands/headsets that have far stood out on sound quality?
*Edit: Anyone try/have the Sennheiser Game One headset?
