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

 

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

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

For the most part, Astro Gaming has succeeded in creating what's likely to be the next hot gaming headset. $300 is a steep price considering how much consoles go for these days, but it's still closely aligned with competing products like Turtle Beach's...

Astro A50 (2016) review: Better than ever, but the competition's still catching up

 

Astro's new A50 packs in a base station that doubles as a charging station so it's always ready to go, but $300 is a lot of money for a gaming headset these days.

Charging station makes it easy to stay powered up ; Crystal-clear mic capabilities ; Intuitive and powerful on-headset controls

Price—this thing is expensive ; Sound isn't what you might expect for $300 ; Base station takes up plenty of desk space

In design, in presentation, in convenience, Astro’s new A50 finally delivers a compelling reason for fans to upgrade their old A50 headset. The charging station is an excellent (albeit ostentatious) bit of work, the motion-sensing auto-on/off is a...

Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station

 

The Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station sounds, looks, and feels fantastic, but carries a high price tag to match its premium features and build.

Excellent sound quality. Very comfortable. Convenient charging cradle.

Expensive. Bundle/cradle only works with either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. No wired option for mobile devices.

Astro Gaming's A50 is the best wireless gaming headset you can buy. It's comfortable, sounds excellent, and its charging cradle is incredibly convenient. It's expensive, but well worth the price if it's in your budget, making it our Editors' Choice. If...

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.
