Excellent sound quality for the price ; Good mic ; Durable design ; Simple installation

Can be uncomfortable after prolonged use ; No surround sound

Astro A10 review: The perfect budget headset as long as you don't care about looks

 

The Astro A10 won't win any beauty contests, but compromising looks to focus on audio seems to have paid off here—it sounds way better than its $60 price tag implies.

Rich bass for a $60 headset ; Flip-to-mute microphone ; Very durable

Narrow soundscape sometimes leads to muddy audio ; Plastic, plastic, plastic ; Colors aren't very eye-catching

Like the HyperX Cloud Stinger last year, there’s a lot of equivocating in this Astro A10 review—a lot of “It’s good...for a $60 headset.” Because it is. There are certainly aspects that could be improved, from a wider soundscape to larger earcups to a...

Astro Gaming A10 Headset

 

The Astro Gaming A10 wired gaming headset takes the excellent comfort and audio performance of the company's much more expensive models and puts them in a budget-friendly package.

Excellent audio quality. Powerful bass. Feels very comfortable.

No accessories included. No simulated surround sound.

The Astro Gaming A10 is the best budget headset we've tested by far. It's comfortable, sounds excellent, and costs a completely reasonable $60. It doesn't have the customizable aspects or simulated surround sound of the A40, but it's less than half the...

Astro A10 review

 

Astro's entry-level gaming headset successfully goes no-frills on a budget

Strong sound for the price ; Comfortable, durable build ; Smart flip-to-mute mic

No surround sound

Deviating from its premium offerings, Astro's A10 Gaming Headset still delivers a quality aural experience without breaking the bank.

Best Budget Headset

 

Astro have been a premium brand for headsets for years, previously you would need to have spent over the £100 mark to own a pair of these. This headset is the company's first debut into the world of budget headsets and they have hit it out the park....
