Today, ASTRO announced the release of its new ASTRO A40+MixAmp M80 Halo 5: Guardians Edition. Much like the popular A50 Master Chief Edition…this is a beautifully matte skinned gaming headset with an entirely new color scheme that’s subtle, yet iconically Halo.
The headset itself will not be available until September, when we’ll announce a few additional Halo-themed audio products. However, pre-orders officially start today!
In addition, the ASTRO A40+MixAmp™ M80 Halo 5: Guardians Edition will include a special downloadable in-game REQ Pack* for Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One which features a special ASTRO Gaming in-game emblem.
* REQ Packs are a bundle of random, digital goods in the form of unlockable weapons and armors, skins,
vehicles and more that players can use in the Arena and Warzone multiplayer modes
The ASTRO A40+MixAmp M80 Halo 5: Guardians Edition will officially release in September, but is
available now for pre-order at select retailers nationwide and directly from ASTRO Gaming at
www.astrogaming.com, for $220 USD.
