  • Good wireless gaming headset.
    Reviewed by Will - 2 avril 2022

    This is a good headset for gaming. When I use it for long gaming sessions and for school work it’s comfortable and feels good on my head. The wireless is good, although I wish it had Bluetooth. This headset is perfect other than using micro usb :/. Overall, this headset is a good overall wireless gaming headset :). Oh also I added the mic foam from my old headset it does not come with the foam

  • 5 star headset all day at the $100 price point.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Anonymous reviewer - 9 août 2021

    This headset is pretty great. If you have a lot of money then no big deal you will get a great headset for a terrible price. This headset is about $200 too much. If you want a headset that is better all around the turtle beach elite pro2 (it’s not wireless but one small wire you don’t even notice it) even the non super amp version for $130 is amazing sound quality and built with more premium materials. It’s also very confusing to get started using there is a lot of software and buttons. The firmware needs updated immediately as well. not a bad headset though. If this was $99 I would give it 5 stars because for being wireless and decent quality as well as the base this is actually why I bought it because the ease of just docking it and charging it. Pros: -Sounds good (not as great as I thought it would though for the price) -Charging dock/base is convenient -Comfortable -Mic sounds decent Cons: -Overpriced for the materials you get -Ear-cuffs aren’t bad but they feel cheap and after about 7 hrs my ears were starting to get sore. -Have to update firmware immediately through Command Center (their software) sometimes the 2019 app won’t work and you have to download the 2015 version. Program and update it first before using the app and updating again (very inconvenient for $300 shouldn’t have to do anything) -sound quality is good but average not one special thing about it. Conclusion: if you buy this you aren’t making a mistake it’s a good headset. For the money I would not recommend it and advise looking into other options Corsair void is $75 I think and this is on par with that. Unfortunately since they are a sponsor in MLG kids think it’s the best thing you can buy but it’s really not. Solid 3 star headset by me.

  • Best Gaming headset I’ve used on the Xbox One X
    Reviewed by nickcal - 14 août 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve used all sorts of headsets for the Xbox over the years and I thought I was sold on a different brand until I tried these A50s. I suffer from a high-end hearing loss so where most standard gaming headphones would sound great to most people, I end up missing a lot of nuances. These headphones get the job done! The ASTRO A50 Wireless Headphones are provide absolute immersion into your gaming experience. The bundle I have comes with a base station for charging and wireless transmission from your gaming system to your headphones. The headphones provide Dolby Headphone Surround Sound. They are engineered with spatial placement for a three-dimensional audio experience. They are fully wireless and have a 15+ hour battery life. The A50 will automatically shutoff when inactive and power on when it detects motion (i.e. if you pick them up and place them on your head). The microphone is a precision mic. Flexible and durable it offers clear, low noise communication and is optimized for gaming on the major gaming platforms (Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC and Mac). The mic’s boom arm operates the mute/unmute function. A simple flip upward mutes the mic and when you pull it down, it unmutes. In addition to the simple mic operation, you have the ability to adjust the ratio of game audio to voice chat. There is an Astro Command Center that is available for download for free that allows you to customize mic levels, EQ settings, and even share audio settings with other gamers. Getting started with the A50s wasn’t too difficult. In order to update the firmware you will need to download the Astro app — Astro Command Center. To connect to the software, you will need to plug your headphones in using a USB cable. You will need to make sure the base station is switched to “PC Mode” and then click the “ok” button on the prompt that states “A firmware update is required”. Once the update has finished you switch the base station back to “Xbox” and plug it back into the gaming system. With the Astro Command Center you also have the option to change settings for the devices. I connected them to my Xbox One X to start my first gaming experience with them. The first game I played with the A50s was Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. I was just blown away. The sound quality was wonderful and for someone who has normal hearing, these are probably such a game changer that it’s almost like cheating when playing against others. For me, I am hearing other players footsteps and gunfire from the direction it’s coming from. This is something I’m not used to being able to hear so it was like a wake-up call for me. The ASTRO A50’s are insanely good. So how about comfort? When I play I play for hours at a time, I’m not getting any headaches or sore ears. The ear cushions are super soft to the touch and they connect by magnets to the headset so they can be replaced super easily if they wear out or get damaged. These have been the best gaming headset I think I have ever owned. I don’t think I have ever been this happy with any other headphones…ever. I have some wonderful ANC headphones I love for music but even as great as they are, I have never been as happy to use them as I am the A50s. The A50s have honestly been a game changer for me. Are these worth buying? Absolutely. ASTRO has made incredible gaming headphones that are built well, feel great, and most importantly sound amazing!

  • Decent while they worked
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Haveben - 26 mars 2020

    Got em. They worked for a few months sent them back for repair. They sent them back and they worked a couple of weeks. Now, I hear the sound from the Xbox one, like a blip, when you turn them on and then nothing. I can hear my microphone chatter in my ear and nothing else. I adjust the volume and it does nothing. I reset everything and nothing changes. What a waste of money to buy and then the time and gas to ship and troubleshoot the product. I’m going back to the Plantronics Rig I was replacing. It was ok as well and had a huge battery life. Plus, I could replace it twice over for what I paid for these. This is a purchase I do regret at this point.
