Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Headset

 

Astro Gaming's A50 Wireless Headset is one of the more expensive gaming headsets you can buy, but with its excellent audio quality, comfortable wire-free design, and compatibility with PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, it's our Editors' Choice.

Excellent sound quality. Comfortable

Expensive. Slightly awkward control placement

A50 Audio System review: Astro Gaming's latest wireless headset (mostly) pwns in 7.1

 

Alright, so you've been successfully pwning n00bz in Battlefield and Call of Duty, but lately you've decided your rig could benefit from one of those

Superb fit and finish ; Impressive sound quality and noise isolation ; Painless setup

Non-removable battery lasts about six hours ; Needs gamepad-to-headset chat cable on Xbox

Despite a few niggles, Astro's A50 stands as one of the best gaming headsets on the market.

Look great, great sound, very durable, rechargable, wireless

Mic quality isn't the best

Illest set of headphones out there

 

I've been messing with/building/programming for about 15 years as a point of reference.

So I've had the Astro A50 headset for just over a month now. This is by far the illest headset on the market. I have it paired up with a Sound Blaster Z 5.1 PCI-e sound card. I play a lot of BF4 and it sounds absolutely amazing. And for those nights...

LEDs are red. I'm going to figure out a way to change that. The rest of my LEDs in my build are blue. If I figure it out, there will be a youtube video or something because I seriously doubt anyone else is crazy enough to crack this thing open and...

Good Product, Terrible Support

 

After 9 months of use the headset will now no longer stay on when not plugged in and "charging". Even if left plugged in for days the headset turns off after 3 mins of being unplugged. I can then turn it back on, and it will stay on for about 3-4 mins...

The headset is very comfortable and fits snugly on the head ; Sound quality is great and the surround sound is perfect for FPS games and anything that you play in first person ; Mic is great, never have any complaints about quality of sound when on...

Expensive, easily one of the most expensive headsets you can get for gaming ; Firmware has not been updated in months, not sure if this is due to it being "perfect" or laziness on the part of Astro

Best Headset Ever

 

Great Headset! Have been using it for almost a year now and it's by far the best headset I've had. (It better be for the cost!) I'm a gamer and love to have the great sound quality and also be able to do voice chat during games. This headset does it all

The only con I have is it took a little while for the docking station to sync with my computer. Once I got it to connect and get my computer to recognize whenever the headset was on to take priority there has been ZERO problems
