Why can't you buy them? The A40's are cheaper than the XP500's. I guess I might have been a little hard on them however the last pair of Turtle Beaches I had were very cheaply made. I was obsessing over reviews after that and have found that while those
turtle beaches do pack a lot of features, the sound quality is slightly inferior and the build quality is very inferior. I have read a lot about tritton as well and have read a lot of complaints about things breaking on them such as the mic boom. I am also
not completely sure I trust tritton due to my past experiences with Mad Catz.
