  • At $300, the Astro A50 headset isn't cheap. It's more expensive than most game consoles these days. Despite the steep price tag, and with the notable exception of the firmware bug that causes intermittent "hiccups" in the audio, this product looks, feels, and acts like you're getting your money's worth. It's an investment in quality that I would have absolutely no problem recommending to enthusiast PC or console gamers, provided that Astro quickly fixes the firmware bug.

    KleerNet™ 5.8GHz Wireless Technology - Operating at a higher frequency than most wireless devices, the A50 Wireless System provides clarity and range with less interference using the best 5.8GHz chipset available today. Point to Multipoint - pair multiple ASTRO A50 headsets with a single transmitter. Totally uncompressed, lossless, and lag free.

  • If you can afford its hefty price tag, the Astro A50 Wireless' excellent surround sound, cozy design and long battery life make it one of the best high-end gaming headsets available.

    The Astro A50 justifies its $300 price tag by offering stellar wireless gaming performance on Xbox One. The headset's 7.1 surround earcups helped me stay extra-aware of my surroundings in competitive games, and fully immersed during cinematic experiences. The lightweight A50 is cozy enough for marathon sessions, with battery life that can get you through a day of play on a charge. While I would have liked better chat controls and more equalizer options, the Astro A50 is a sexy, comfortable and great-sounding headset for serious gamers.

  • The Astro Gaming A50 Headset + Mixamp is one of the best gaming headsets you can buy right now. It's clear, comfortable, and wireless, and despite its small on-headset controls it's very well-designed. Admittedly, the $300 price tag is daunting for a gaming accessory, but if you're looking for a best-in-class headset, the A50 is it. It unseats the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 as our Editors' Choice for gaming headsets. If your budget is limited, the Logitech G930 is still a good choice, but its audio quality isn't nearly as good, and it isn't quite as comfortable.

The ASTRO A50 is also very comfortable to wear as it was also made from premium materials. Your head and your ears will be thanking you despite long hours of gaming with the comfort that it offers. A similarity that it has with the A40 is that it is surprisingly light on your head, so you will never have to feel weighed down.
