Going to PAX Prime 2010?
Need good quality headphones?

If you meet the above criteria you're eligible to pick up the PAX 2010 exclusive set of Astro Gaming A30's headphones that will be on sale this weekend at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, Washington.  This set features a fairly swanky design (as seen below) and if you want a pair you had better hurry as they will only have 400 of them in stock.  There isn't a price listed in the release but the regular A30's cost $199.99 so I would bring at least that much with you to their booth if you want a pair.



SAN FRANCISCO – September 2, 2010 – ASTRO Gaming, creator of premium video gaming equipment for professional gamers, and the online web comic Penny Arcade, founders and hosts of the semi-annual Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), are offering PAX Prime show attendees an exclusive offering this weekend. Just 400 Special Edition ASTRO A30 headsets with speaker tags featuring signature artwork of Penny Arcade’s Gabe and Tycho characters will be available directly from the Penny Arcade booth.

“Each year we try to create one special item for the attendees, and we’re super happy that ASTRO agreed to do these with us” remarked Robert Khoo, President of Operations and Business Development for Penny Arcade.

ASTRO Gaming is also proud to have been named the official headset provider for PAX 2010 earlier this year. The company’s recently released ASTRO A30 Cross-Gaming headset and highly popular ASTRO A40, the official licensed headsets of Major League Gaming (MLG), are also featured throughout the free play area at PAX Prime.

The new ASTRO A30 Cross-Gaming headset features a lightweight, street-smart design and delivers precise audio performance and crystal-clear voice communication across gaming consoles, computers and mobile devices. By contrast, the popular ASTRO A40 pro-grade headset provides a robust over-the-ear design for a pro-gaming experience suitable for any marathon gaming session. Both the A30 and A40 are also designed to work with the Dolby®-powered ASTRO MixAmp™ which seamlessly blends voice chat and game sounds. All ASTRO Gaming products are available directly through the company website at: www.astrogaming.com.
