The padded headband, the ear cups, mic and even the ear backs are all customisable. You can swap out any of those for both a new style or a different comfort level.

The MixAmp Pro unit lets you carefully adjust sound balances and the EQ on the fly. It's still powered purely via USB.

While you can just use the headphones by themselves if you want, it's the MixAmp that does some seriously heavy lifting when it comes to great audio.

This model even allows for streaming audio, for people creating online gaming videos or live streaming their play to an adoring fanbase.

The ear cups shuttle up and down to adjust for any size head. Well, nearly any size.

Pop off the speaker plates, as Astro calls them, and you'll find there's a plug for the mic on both of the cans, making it easy to pop the mic where you want it, or even remove it all together.

The ear cushions are held on magnetically, letting you easily swap them around for a more comfortable material or better noise isolation.

If you're wondering how you get all these additional bits, Astro has mod kits that come with everything you need.
