Cable

Cable:
"I prefer wired equipment in general because I hate constantly recharging things, but one of the problems I run into a lot with headsets is the cables going bad, getting a short in it, or whatever - the mic stops working, or audio only comes out one side, etc."
_
"So if I do ever have a problem with the cable, I can just pop onto Astro's website or even on Amazon here and pick one up for about $20.Aside from that, it's super comfortable, very well built, mic sounds great, and it just meets all my needs perfectly."
_
"When the headset arrived it was missing a 2.0m cord."
_
"I went so far as buying a separate clip on mic and xbox chat cable at the same time I ordered these after reading all the horrible mic quality reviews."
_
"The first gen system had a swappable optical cable, which is great for me in case something went wrong with the included cable, or it was too short, whatever the case may be."
_
"Amazing product, good quality, light weight, removal parts(if your cable somehow splits) easy to replace customizable!"
_
"Setting up the unit was pretty easy (Just make sure you have the mute cord closer to your body)."
_
"I know that being able to replace the mute switch cable is supposed to be a feature but I prefer having the wire permanently molded to the headset as I never experienced static with those."
_
"The first gen system had a swappable optical cable, which is great for me in case something went wrong with the included cable, or it was too short, whatever the case may be."
