  • Not impressed
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Micky5490 - August 15, 2019

    If you have the previous generation don’t bother upgrading. Not much difference clearly in the design and as the other review stated it is very low in volume. Not sure if I have a defective one or my ears just need to have the sound blasting. But my gen 3’s are super loud and I had high expectations. All of the reviews that are paragraph long are not even worth the read. If you don’t have a pair of A50 cop these and mess with the command center to make them loud. If you have any previous version not worth the buy. I will be checking out the steel series wireless and comparing and will make my decision. Needless to say I am disappointed.

  • Disappointing premium headset
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JayDG09 - October 29, 2020

    Got mine last week, will be returning my unit this weekend. Constantly having problem on pairing and charging the headset, I needed to constantly hard reset the headset. Every time I use it and put it back to the dock, it keeps on doing the blinking white lights, not pairing and charging. I guess this is a very common problem, I found out when I started researching on how to charge my new headset, bunch of people experiencing the same problem. Would give 3 stars, for the audio quality and comfort. But only 2 stars, if I’m paying $300+ tax included for a premium gaming headset, I expect to experience no problem fresh out of the box.

  • Dont even bother
    Reviewed by JoeB - November 21, 2020

    These are definitely not worth the money. I have the previous version and I cant say fi they made any changes but I have the gen 3 version so you'd think they could have gotten it right. The sound quality is ok but for $300 dollars it should either be amazing or at least have sound cancelling. Now my headset cuts out constantly, but since I have no control over the wireless channel or any troubleshooting tools at all they are basically worthless now. The cradle is pretty poor too. getting them to connect is a pain and one of my kids broke one of the charging pins off because he couldn't get it to connect. I will never buy another Astro Headset again.
