Nice sound but....

This headset produces great quality sound. However my mic would cut out periodically (yes was fully charged) and they were uncomfortable with my glasses. I bought them specifically for comfort. Will return them since I can’t wear them for long periods of time.

Very poor support. a50's riddled with problems audio dropS out charging staion issues

When the headset is placed in the charging station 9 out or 10 times it does not charge with out messing with it. finally a charging pin falls off, Astro support asks for a picture. I then send them pics they can clearly see it has failed. they will not send me a replacement charging station first and say you need to ship at your expense the broken one to Astro in Usa. "we will evaluate it for warranty". so as a Canadian customer not only do you get to pay for shipping but you will be with out the product for 1-2 months. Do not waist your money garbage.

Can't charge and play

very good audio and mic audio is good but only downside is you can't play your game while the Headset is plugged in charging other than that these are very comfortable i think for the price it should have came with the mod kit but all good

Best headset for PS4!!!

I've used several headsets for the PS3 and PS4 over the years.....and the Astro A50 is the best wireless headset I've ever used. Excellent features along with the crisp and clear sound/chat makes this headset worth every penny!!!
