  • Great Gutz No Body
    Reviewed by hitsuyoo - October 17, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are good headphones. There's no arguing that fact. These are my first pair of wireless headphones for my Xbox One X and they definitely do the trick. Latency is at a minimum and the sound is top notch, The mic allows for clear and uninhibited chat. the directional surround sound is creepy good. The bluetooth connectivity is fabulous. I mean, dang! This is what you want in a great pair of headphones, much less, a pair of wireless headphones. The dongle transitions easily between the Xbox One X and my PC like a champ. From the way I'm gushing over these things and by the score I gave it, you're probably awaiting a big ol' BUT. Well, I'm not one to disappoint. Guys and girls. parents and guardians, hear me now. These headphones are for adults that appreciate the value of a dollar. What I mean by that, is simply this. The build quality of these headphone are a step below Fisher Price. These things are just one rage quit away from the trash or a bunch of masking tape. They're poorly built. Simple as that. These are are great sounding a performing headphones, but $119.99 is too much. I recommend these only to grown folk.

  • Sound OK, Get Dolby Atmos
    Reviewed by Trobadour - October 19, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] --- SETUP --- The setup for the Astros A20 was quick. In the package you can see a USB-C cable, the headsets, and 1 USB dongle transmitter. The transmitter goes plugged into your Xbox or PC and after a quick automatic installation of the software, the transmitter recognizes the headset. --- FEATURES --- The key feature of these Astros is that they are forward compatible with the Xbox Series X/S and, if you purchase a separate dongle, you can use them with a PS5 as well. This Xbox specific headset works with the current gen Xbox One/S. --- PERFORMANCE --- The performance for the stereo headsets was ok compared to others that I’ve used. I tested this headset with DOOM Eternal on Xbox One X and Hades on PC. For games like Hades, I had a great time listening to the voices of the characters with crisp, clear sounds. That game isn’t too intensive when it comes to audio, so it was perfect for that type of game. For DOOM Eternal, a game with lots of heavy bass music and crunchy sounds, I found it lacking in the audio department. However, Xbox has a one-time payment audio feature called Dolby Atmos that turns stereo headsets like this one into a surround sound experience. With that feature on, it was a great improvement. This review doesn’t take in consideration the Dolby Atmos add on, but it’s worth mentioning in case you want to get more out of the headset. --- EXPECTATIONS --- The product has its limitations. However, being a multi console owner, these headsets might redeem themselves once I can get my hands on a PS5 and Xbox Series X as the convenience of not having to switch headsets or transmitters could potentially outweigh the downfalls. Otherwise, the headset itself is light on the head and I found it comfortable for a person who wears glasses. --- VALUE --- The price for the Astros A20s in terms of value is ok for an introductory headset but having to buy only one for two consoles is definitely going to save you money. --- APPROVAL --- I highly recommend this product for people who are new to the gaming headset space and want an easy entry. Additionally, I recommend these headsets for future multi-console / PC owners.

  • Very comfortable, acceptable sound quality
    Reviewed by Ponskippa - October 17, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First opinion out of the box, the headset is big, but lightweight and feels very sturdy. All the materials feel pretty premium for its price point. The plastics used feel strong, the headband flexes without making any cracking noises. The headband has a soft comfortable rubber/silicon feeling material that rests on your head. The ear pads are very soft and comfortable as well. I have a large head and these for me very good. They are adjustable and even fit my 7 year old nephew nicely. The mic boom is also made of flexible yet sturdy plastic and mutes when you move it back into the “up” position. My friends said my voice came through loud and crisp in party chat. The handband has a notch in it so that you can place them over your tv/monitor or any headphone stand when you’re not using it. I thought that was a pretty neat design. The build quality and design of this headset is its strong point. Where I feel this headset is lacking is its sound quality. Don’t get me wrong, they sound good, especially in its bass / low end. Most headsets at this price point have very artificial sounding bass. Gunshots and explosions sound good with this headset. Where I feel the sound quality is lacking is in the rest of the audio spectrum. Some frequencies get drowned out in game. When playing Resident Evil, zombies and them scary demon dogs kept sneaking up on me because I couldn’t hear them coming lol. I wouldn’t recommend this headset for very competitive gamers who want an advantage in shooters. Battery life is excellent and I love that it charges with a USB C cable. It’s today’s standard and every device made in 2020 and beyond should have it. Thank you Astro for including it. They are very comfortable for long gaming sessions and I think most people will find them pleasant and comfortable as well. Pairing is very simple, turn on the headset and then plug in the transmitter into the USB port. It worked seamlessly with both my Xbox One X and my gaming laptop. At the end of the day, I think this headset is a great value and worth the money. It’s excellent build quality and comfortable design and wireless compatibility make it worth your money. I think most people will be pleased with its comfort and sound quality. Perhaps with some tweaking in sound settings you’ll be able to find a good balance. I just wouldn’t recommend it to audiophiles or very competitive gamers.

  • Level Up Your Gaming Audio
    Reviewed by Balboa3 - October 19, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great wireless gaming headset. It’s comfortable, sounds fantastic, has some nice features, and is easy to move between gaming hardware. Battery has no problem lasting for some extended gaming sessions, and when you do need to charge it, it’s great that it uses a USB C cable to charge it quickly. Getting the headset connected to my PC and Xbox is a breeze; just connect the included USB adapter and it connects on its own. We’ve easily moved the headset between our PC and Xbox by just moving that adapter back and forth. Sound quality is great on these. The included EQ button is nice and lets you switch to a sound profile that you like for your media/games. You can easily hear details in games and it allows you to pinpoint where some sounds are coming from. The flip up to mute mic is great. I love that I don’t have to hit a key on my keyboard, I just flip the mic up and mute myself. Lastly, comfort on this headset is awesome. Again, in extended gaming sessions, I’ve felt no discomfort on my ears or the top of my head. The cushions are comfortable and the padding on the band alleviates any pressure on the top of your head. I also love not having any cables to fuss with. Getting up really quickly to get a drink, or take care of something, doesn’t require me to pull off the headset and the range on these is good enough that I can walk into another room and still hear what is happening in the game. These are an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a quality wireless gaming headset. They tick all the boxes; comfortable, great sound quality, great build, and excellent battery life. The fact that you can easily switch back and forth between your PC and Xbox with little effort is just a big plus.

  • Love that it is multi use: Xbox, PC and Mac
    Reviewed by Ohanaman - October 23, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] THE BREAKDOWN: Overall, not a bad headset. The setup was pretty straight forward and quick. The box included the headset, USB-C cable, and USB dongle transmitter. Some of the features of this headset are they are NOT only used on one platform. You can use them on Xbox, PC or Mac. For me this feature is amazing as I do no like having different headsets for each platform that I play on. They are wireless and work on the 2.4 GHz range. I found that the range on these headphones was around 50ft like they stated. However, when adding floors and walls the range was around more like 40ft, but for me that worked well as I go up one flight to the fridge. The sound output was good. I found the highs and mids to be fairly clear and the bass was just ok for me. One thing to add on the sound is that you have Dolby Atmos for Xbox the surrounds sound really enhances the experience. The flip-to-mute microphone worked well, I didn’t receive any “hey who’s mic is echoing” while gaming rants. One, thing to note is that on mine you actually had to move the microphone all the way up to the vertical position to mute it. On others that I have used they had a midpoint mute which I kind of liked better. The fit was just ok for me, I have a big head and they fit me but felt almost like they bowed out some around the top. They were pretty comfortable for extended play time. Not the best comfort I have experience but by far not the worst. There is also game/voice balance and EQ presets. These all worked well and as intended. PRO’s: -Good wireless range -Can use on Xbox, PC and Mac -Flip-to-mute mic -Comfortable for extended wear -expandable with additional dongles CON’s: -No option for upgraded ear covers -The earcups do not rotate flat SUMMARY: Overall, these headphones worked well and were comfortable, and I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for device like this.
