I sadly broke my a40's and now use mobile phone headset, seems to also give good audio however, I have never had to dial it so far over to voice before!

get a superlux hd681 for 20 pounds winnnie, and youll wonder why you sticked to the a40 for all those years ;)

Is there a better alternative to the Astro mixamp on xbox one?

my only gripe is the chat audio quality. my voice sounds muffled and distant when my voice goes through the mixamp, but when I directly plug in my A40 to the stereo adapter, my voice is crystal clear.

And these are a few with the exact same problem;

for sound quality head over to head-fi website.

There are other alternitives. It seems that ps is more compatible to most of these devices because the Xbox controller . but I'm a ps4 guy so I know nothing so doing use me as an example

about the astro mixamp issues, the problem is the mixamp
if you have a 2013 version you need to upgrade the firmware of the mixamp, see astro homepage
then the odd chat sound is gone

the 2012 mixamp version cannot be patched but overall has less problems than the 2013 version
incase thats not acceptable for you then you might want to look into modding the mono chat adapter that came with the Xbox One, this one doesnt create any odd sound with any mixamp and can me modded to be compatible with any mic and headphone
see eg roads mod in this forum
