For console gaming the Mixamp is nice. It does a very good job with the simulated surround sound and its nice to have game/voice volume control. However, if this is for PC use then no. You can get a better amp/dac with a volume knob if thats what you need.
The Astro Gaming A40 TR headset with MixAmp Pro TR is an impressive headset/amp combination that provides excellent audio in a light and comfortable build that feels very premium. At $250 it’s a very expensive package, but one that justifies its price with quality.
Yeah the mixamp should work with most headset/headphones. I used them with the Steelseries Siberia V2s and they sounded great. Though I do recommend getting the A40s if you‘re looking for a comfortable headset.
Astro Gaming – A40 Wired Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac – Black/Gray. This item is no longer available in new condition.
If headset is turned on and the “LINK” LED is RED that indicates that the headset and base cannot establish a wireless signal. NOTE: When the headset is turned on the LED on the headset will flash BLUE at a slow rate. If you are seeing the RED light that means that the unit needs to be reset.
The auxiliary port can be used to add an additional source (like your phone) to the Mixamp, so you can hear it in the headset alongside game audio. The Stream port is the niftiest of the group, connecting to either a PC or capture card and merging all of your audio into one source for streaming or capture.

Sometimes the mic on A40 won’t work simply because the volume is mute or set too low. To make sure the volume is audible: Click the sound icon on the lower-right of your screen, then move the volume slider all the way to at least halfway up. Test if your A40 headset is working properly.

“Feel” is probably the most important thing to consider when choosing a controller. The Astro C40 TR’s shape makes it feel more like an Xbox One or Switch Pro controller than a PS4 controller. Everything but the inputs, front faceplate, and touchpad is covered with a rubberized matte finish.
Plug the mixamp into the bottom of your controller, then connect your controller to the Xbox with a micro USB cable and update the controller’s firmware (Settings > Devices & Accessories > Controller > Update). Edit: Update your controller before you plug in the mixamp.
Played a lot of Outlast last night using headphones and the stereo audio worked wonders with sound perception and scaring me senseless. Yes you can, but you loose all the surround sound. They will work just like normal stereo headphones. Do they still have surround sound if you plug them into a PC without the mixamp?

You don’t need that with an Astro mixamp.. It’s all settings on the xbox and the optical port. The mixamp is 100% worth it. The headset itself, not really.
What is the difference between this version and the ASTRO A40 TR Edition? Nothing. The TR mix amp is all digital and the headset can be customized with a different mic, speaker tags, and ear cups. Basically a marketing scheme to sell an old product for a new price.

Hold down the power button on the console for about 10 seconds until it shuts down and then remove the power cable from the Xbox and the power outlet for about 5 minutes. Then re-connect and wait 60 seconds before turning on the Xbox. If that doesn’t help then you will need to try out a soft factory reset.
