Astro A40 has a swappable microphone. You can change its place either on your right or your left side. It also comes with customizable speaker tags, 1.0m A40 Mobile Cable, and 1.5m PC Splitter/Adapter. The cables make it possible to connect to PS4, PC, even Mac and iPhone. However, its speakers are straight stereo, so you would need additional hardware or software to make it surround.
Meanwhile, the Sennheiser 343D is fully surround, supporting Dolby Digital 7.1 and Sennheiser’s “Eargonomic Acoustic Refinement” technology. You can actually choose between stereo mode and surround mode. Its microphone provides crystal clear conversations and automatically mutes whenever the boom arm is raised.
