Hey Envy, I'm curious as to whether you've tried gaming on the XBOX 360 with the A40 + MixAmp 5.8 combination? From the reviews I can find around here, the A40s come off as 'hollow' but is that with or without the mixamp?
I'm purchasing a headset for use on the xbox and I was dead set on buying the PC360 + 5.8 combo but as tecz0r said, the mixamp is only available when bundled and I'm looking to replace these horrid turtle beaches asap, but I don't want to dive into the A40+5.8 bundle if it sounds horrid even with the mixamp.
I've noticed that "hollow" myself but I think it was because of the dolby headphone option, because the sound would be inside my head during DH and not outside, while it was off. But this might just be me haha. It'll sound hollow by itself, but with a tweak on EQ it sounds great. Though this is with a pre-2011 version (2009)! So I'm not sure how a 2011 sounds. They say they "improved" the wiring etc though.
Still though for the price $200 on the headphone by itself (though this makes the mixamp a $140 value) is still hard to swallow when you could get something much better like as you said the PC360. Guessing you don't like wired options if you didn't want to consider the Pro Mixamp an option? Rather it is your only choice at the moment if you wanted a Mixamp as a stand alone.
