The Astro A40 has all the traits you'd expect from a quality headset - it's lightweight which comes in handy for longer gaming sessions and it's also quite rugged in design.

Where it comes into its own is its Audio V2 tuning though, which was made in collaboration with Pro Gamers themselves.

Impact: Go For Gold With This Alternative Option

Nick Mercs uses a pretty epic controller from Scuf gaming, that comes into its own thanks to its unique build.

The main feature with this Scuf Impact controller is that there are 4 paddles at the back of the controller which you can map on to different buttons. This allows you to keep your thumbs on the thumbsticks without losing valuable milliseconds when switching over to the usual buttons.

It's expensive sure...and a little weird to get used to we imagine, but well worth it in the long run.
