The ASTRO A50 Wireless Headset for Xbox One, PC, and Mac delivers top-of-the-line acoustics, ergonomics, and durability that professional gamers demand. Experience legendary sound and performance without the inconvenience and restrictions that come with wires. The all-new ASTRO Base Station features a 5GHz wireless transmitter that provides clear, low-latency voice communication, while making headset pairing and charging simple. Battle through long, intense gaming sessions in comfort with up to 15 hours of battery life. Hear enemies and objects from all angles with Dolby® Headphone 7.1 surround sound and optimize chat levels and game sounds with the built-in MixAmp™ technology. The included ASTRO Command Center software allows Pros and Livestreamers to tune every input and output parameter of the A50 precisely configure it for their specific setup. For even more flexibility, the optional A50 Mod Kit allows users to add synthetic leather headband and ear cushions for improved noise-cancellation and comfort. Additional Base Stations will be sold separately in Spring 2017 to allow users to use the PS4 headset on the Xbox One. For VR gamers, the A50 will fit perfectly over the HTC Vive, Oculus, or PS VR and deliver an immersive audio experience.
*Please note: A50 Mod Kits are only compatible with the New/Gen 3 A50 Headsets and not any other headsets, including previous generations of the A50. The A50 headset is not included in the purchase of a Mod Kit.
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
Great headset but!
I love this headset, but the battery life is 5 hours or under and i am so sad about that.And when you play and charge it at the same time then the wire are to short.
Compared to the previous generations of Astro A50s, this headset is a major step down. Both audio and voice quality have dropped significantly, the battery life in shorter, often needs to be reset because either the voice or the audio portion is not working, and the wireless range is shorter. Both my Gen1 and Gen2 A50s lasted me upwards of 3 years before I started seeing issues while my Gen3 saw issues within the first week. I would have replaced them months ago but I can't justify dropping more money on a headset after only having this one for less than a year.
I am in love with this headset!!!! They are amazing wanted a pair for years finally got me a pair tax time and they live up to my expectations!!!! Great buy with no regrets recommend to every1!!!
