  • Great audio, overall. Only one small problem.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Hav0c - April 10, 2021

    I had previously had Astro A40’s and loved using them for about 3 years. This year, I wanted a wireless pair so I bought a pair of SteelSeries Arctis 7x’s. After my 7x’s were accidentally broken, I decided to buy a pair of these. After about 120 hours with the 7x’s, I can say the Astro A50’s blow the 7x’s out of the water. Great audio, great battery life, and the charging stand/receiver is great. The only gripe I have is that they are sensitive to WIFI signals. There is a faint clicking noise that comes through when it’s next to my PC and it’s on. I wish I would have never wasted money on the 7x’s and just went with these straight away.

  • Great sound quality but inconsistent mic.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anthony - December 21, 2019

    In the past month I have had 2 pairs of these headsets I returned the first one because I had to speak loudly for my voice to get picked up by the mic. With the second pair, I had to reset it out of the box because I couldn't adjust the game/voice audio. Afterwards, I learned that it picked up my voice better but it randomly cut in and out. The sound quality was great and you can hear small details other headsets don't pick up. I came to these from the A20's and they were great. I was just trying these out to see the difference but my experience was ruined due mic issues. This may have been a bad batch but this is my first impressions.

  • 2 issues in a row
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ryan - September 14, 2019

    So I had purchased this new headset and the first ones 4th charging light indicator wouldn’t light up. I exchanged it and now the second ones base station had frozen and I unplug it and plug it in only for it to not turn on again. I’m going to return it until they get these issues figured out. Otherwise while I was able to use it it had the best sound I’ve heard in a hdmi f headset. Base station is more portable and easier to place the headset in than previous models. It also cut out less on the new frequency they are using. And Dolby Atmos rocks. Shame that such an expensive headset has quality control issues at release a few months later.
