great but not great

this headset is amazing for sound and battery life, it hits it mark there. but everything else starts to downfall after that. the base station is a great idea and with some improvements would work great but as of this model its garbage, hardly ever starts charging without playing around with it for five minutes every other week i have a problem with the headset not wanting to turn on and the price was just way to much for all these issues. i would not recommend this headset and instead wait till the next one.

Great when they work

When they work these headsets sound great. However, there is an ongoing issue with these that Astro chooses not to acknowledge. Go to the Astro Gaming Forums and read all the threads about these Gen 3 headsets not turning off and/or not producing any sound. Don't buy these.
