I was reading about this headset and wanted to get some user feedback on it. What's the sound quality like and how do you use the mic on the 360(I've read that you need something extra to be able to chat.)? Basically I want to know if it's worth the price.

You shouldn't need anything extra. I think the PS3 needed an additional cable but I think they include that now.

I have the A40, I imagine the sound is similar. The A40 are great but eventually I bought the Sennheiser PC360 to use with the mixamp.

I have the A50 and love it.

It comes with everything you need. There is a cable that runs from the headset into the xbox controller for voice chat.

Great sound, very clear, not distortion or interference. Good bass response.

There are known issues with the headset but Astro rolled out a new firmware and hardware mod for the newest sets that should take care of the issues. I received mine with no problems at all.
