Battle through long, intense gaming sessions in comfort with up to 15 hours of battery life.

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
I love this headset so much and I've never had one better than this, however the noise gate on mine stopped working, and there are a lot of the time it will stop working for a couple of seconds and then work again. Other than that though, it really is an amazing headset.
Best Wireless Headset Out There
The quality is great. I also sprung for the Dolby Atmos after playing through the GOW4 campaign with the trail.I would, however, definitively recommend the mod kit if you want fully immersive sound because, with the stock ear cups, you get a lot of outside noise. I prefer the stock ear cups because of this reason so I can hear my surroundings irl.Honestly after having them since April 2018 the only issues I have is that they do lose sound for about 1/2 second maybe once every 4 or 5 hours, and the mic does pick up wind while walking around. Not even that big of deal being a wireless headset. I'm guessing the audio has to do with the compression and decompression of the audio since it has to be sent through the 5ghz radio...Overall, best headset I've ever owned. The intermittent, brief outage is worth cutting the wire--nothing like going to the bathroom or getting a quick snack while staying in the party chat/game audio😉Anyone saying they are having difficulty charging probably just doesn't understand to let the magnets do all the work...Hope this helps.(p.s. Logitech just acquired both ASTRO AND Blue Yeti mics, so there's bound to be either a new set of A50s or a better pair with a Blue Yeti mic within a year or so)
