A40 TR Headset + Xbox Series X|S Setup Guide

This guide will provide you with all the information you will need to set up your A40 TR Headset (Standalone) with your Xbox Series X or S. For setup with the MixAmp Pro TR, see here.

Here is the ASTRO equipment you will need to connect:

  • A40 TR Headset
  • A40 Inline Mute Cable


Step by Step

Step 1: Make sure your Xbox Series X|S system is turned on.

Step 2: Connect the A40 Inline Mute Cable with your A40 TR Headset firmly until you can no longer see the 3.5mm connector showing. The end closest to the mute switch should be connected with your headset.

Step 3: Take the other end of the A40 Inline Mute Cable and connect it with your Xbox controller.

Step 4: Open your Xbox menu by pressing the Xbox button on your controller, then head to the Settings menu.

Step 5: Navigate to the Volume & audio output settings menu.

Step 6: Under Volume options, set Party chat output to Headset.

Step 7: Under Headset audio, ensure that the Headset format is set to Windows Sonic for Headphones.

If you’ve purchased a Dolby Atmos license, choose that instead and use the Dolby Access app to customize additional Equalizer and audio settings. Here’s more about Dolby Atmos and Xbox Series X|S audio.

Step 8: Close out the menu and start up your favorite game.

You’re good to go! Be sure to check in-game options regarding potential player muting or other audio setup, as these features can differ from game to game. Your A40 TR Headset can also be manually muted using the mute switch on the A40 Inline Mute Cable, and volume + Game:Voice balancing can be controlled through the Xbox menu.
