Best Wireless Headset. Period.

Had this headset for about 6 months or so now and they are hands down the best headset I have used for gaming. I’m a big fan of audio equipment and I used to my music headphones via an aux cable (Sony MDR 1000X); they are a decent set of headphones (the best I’ve used when listening to music) but when it comes to Gaming? The Astros beat them hands down!Very easy to set up, and I would highly recommend purchasing the Dolby sound pack for Xbox One to get the most out of them. If I had to state my best additional accessory purchase for gaming it would be this headset. Next purchase? The PS4 Base Station (on its own) so I can use them with the PS4 as well.

this headset is great!

it can be problematic at first, but once you have it updated to the latest version (you will need to do a manual install as the version it updates to is bugged and prevents it from updating itself, just google for it and eventually you should find an astro forum and they posted a manual installer there) it is as smooth as smooth can be and works like a charm!!

The best headset I've ever had

I've used this headset since December 2016 and I can surely say this is the best pair of headset I've ever used. It's super easy to use and takes less than 5 minutes to set up. Yay!- Sound quality is amazing and the equalizer is super customizable - The battery life is really good - Super easy to set up and no struggle at all when I swap to use it on my PC- Wireless. My cats can't chew the cable now haha! - Microphone talkback. I love this feature! It is possible to turn it off if you want. Nay! - Sometimes it's a pain for me to place them in the base station. I have to fiddle with them for a good minute until they start charging- The design is a bit boring. Maybe add some lights in there?- You need a PC to customize it

The first thought was wow that is packed very nice! Second thought was these better be worth the 330 bucks! Then I turned them on. The a50 has the best sound out of a headset that money can buy, hands down. an absolutely flawless design with a performance meant for champions. The only thing I do not like is the stock EQ presets are don't give the full output of what this headset has to offer. after playing with the custom settings of the EQ I was able to almost double the performance of the headset, footsteps are now heard from across the map, yelling is very directional oriented, gunshots sound real. I wish Astro would have put some more time into making better presets on the Astro app, however I can get past that and I'm just happy I can adjust it myself. BUY THIS HEADSET if you want peak performance. This headset alone could make you go from a average player to a very competitive semi pro player, if you know how to use it. once again Astro you have impressed me. Now all we need is a Gen 4 a50. I will buy it instantly, even though I just got the gen 3, this is my second set, I loved them so much I gave my first set to a friend in need.
