Can Neon Colors Improve Gaming Performance?  ASTRO Determined to Find Out

SAN FRANCISCO May 3, 2013 – ASTRO Gaming, a division of Skullcandy, Inc. (Nasdaq: SKUL), and creators of premium video gaming equipment for professional and hardcore gamers, today announced a slew of bright new neon colors for the brand’s most popular product the ASTRO A40 Pro-Gaming Headset.  ASTRO Gaming fans have recently been clamoring in support of a wider color palette for the studio’s best-selling audiophile-grade headset and today ASTRO has officially delivered four of the most requested colors – Pink, Yellow, Orange and Red.  The ASTRO A40 Pro-Gaming Headset’s four new neon color choices join the two existing color options of Black and White.  Neon Pink, Yellow and Orange ASTRO A40 Headsets are available now; Neon Red ASTRO A40 Headsets will be available later this summer.

“ASTRO Gaming has one of the most passionate fan bases in the gaming industry and we’ve always paid close attention to their suggestions for product improvement – it’s a critical part of how we’ve maintained our edge, delivering technologically superior, professionally performing and cutting-edge products year after year after year,” said Aron Drayer, Director of Marketing, ASTRO Gaming.  “While there is currently no conclusive scientific evidence that Neon Colors can improve gaming performance there is no question that any player sporting a new set of Neon A40s is going to stand out in a crowd and may even distract a few opposing players!”

The recently revealed 2013 Edition ASTRO A40 Pro-Gaming Headset, which is now available in four new neon colors, including Pink, Yellow, Orange and Red, features an update to the company’s highly popular Quick Disconnect Cabling System as well as re-tuned drivers and enclosures that make the audiophile-grade headsets the most accurate and detailed ASTRO Gaming has ever produced, with improved low-end response and less distortion at peak volume.

2013 Edition ASTRO A40 Pro-Gaming Headset Features:

  • New Neon Colors:  Customize your cans with four new high-style, neon color choices now available for the ASTRO A40, including Pink, Yellow, Orange and Red.  The new neon colors join the A40’s existing black and white choices for a total of six color options.
  • Quick Disconnect Cabling System:  Updated version of the ASTRO Quick Disconnect system, offering the same flexibility of using multiple cable types and lengths, but now plugging directly into the headset via a 3.5mm 4-pole jack instead of the original mid-cable release.  This increases reliability and durability while also making it easier to change to preferred cable lengths and update cables as desired.
  • Media Controller Cable:  Designed to move freely between mobile, console and PC gaming, the ASTRO A40 Headset features a unique Media Controller Cable providing total audio control featuring: an in-line mic; an in-line mute;  a switch that toggles between in-line and boom mics; a multi-use call/pick-up/music track control button; and, a volume control wheel.
  • Best Sounding ASTRO Headsets Ever:  The 2013 Edition ASTRO A40 has re-tuned drivers and enclosures with improved low-end response and less distortion at high volumes making them the most accurate ASTRO headsets ever
  • ASTRO Audio Experience – Engineered specifically for gaming, ASTRO Audio delivers audiophile-grade sound in a richly detailed positional audio experience.  ASTRO A40 headsets are designed for extended game playing, movie watching and music listening sessions and feature superior fit and finish.
  • Removable Mic System:  The ASTRO A40 features a highly precise, removable boom mic, which can be removed and swapped from ear to ear for a more customizable in-game communication experience.
  • Customizable Speaker Tags:  ASTRO A40 headsets feature a magnetic, removable and customizable Speaker Tag system.  Tags can be designed online to create a unique look for teams, clans, guilds or simply for pure personal expression.

ASTRO Gaming also recently announced significant permanent price reductions for its most popular gaming headsets, including the 2013 Edition ASTRO A40 Pro-Gaming Headset, which is now available for $149.99.  An A40 Audio System, including the 2013 ASTRO MixAmp™ Pro, is also available for $249.99.
