Astro A50 Wireless

 

As one of the most expensive headsets on the market, the Astro A50 is an excellent choice for those who are willing to invest over £250. It's well constructed, sounds great and delivers an immersive surround-sound experience.

A remarkable gaming headset – but you certainly pay for it.

Astro A50 Gaming Headset review

 

Is Astro's A50 the premiere gaming audio package?

Excellent sound fidelity and mixing ; Soft, comfy earcups ; Connects to anything with an optical port

Variable battery performance ; Lack of separate channels for talk and game sound ; Useful cables and adapters sold separately

Astro A50 Multi-Format Wireless Gaming Headset Review

 

This headset sounds amazing, looks fantastic and performed beyond our expectations., Wireless tech is hit and miss, but the A50 never missed a beat, never crackled, never faded away and has a 30ft range., The base unit and stand are lightweight, small...

The £250 price tag is more than justifiable given their performance, but this maybe a bit too high for many to take a chance on trying out the headset, those looking for the next best thing should look at the wired A40 which are a little less expensive...

The Astro A50 has blown my mind this week, I was expecting it to be nothing more that the A40 with the wires cut and on the surface, perhaps it is exactly that, but my overall experience of the headset was so much more than that of the A40 and it’s the...

Astro A50 Headset Review

 

In a world where gaming headsets are readily available, the people at Astro have made their name synonymous with quality. The Astro A40 headsets have been adopted by Major League Gaming, they're all over events like PAX, and they can even be found in...

Stunning sound quality ; 10-hour battery life ; Wireless, wireless, wireless

Dependency on optical for audio

Gamers know about Astro: they make headsets that are bleeding edge in terms of quality, and their A50 set is no different. They've removed all of the hassle of wires and made something that's an absolute joy to game with. Hell, I don't think O could...

A50 Audio System review: Astro Gaming's latest wireless headset (mostly) pwns in 7.1

 

Despite a few niggles, Astro's A50 stands as one of the best gaming headsets on the market.

Superb fit and finish ; Impressive sound quality and noise isolation ; Painless setup

Non-removable battery lasts about six hours ; Needs gamepad-to-headset chat cable on Xbox

For the most part, Astro Gaming has succeeded in creating what's likely to be the next hot gaming headset. $300 is a steep price considering how much consoles go for these days, but it's still closely aligned with competing products like Turtle Beach's...

Astro A50 (2016) review: Better than ever, but the competition's still catching up

 

Astro's new A50 packs in a base station that doubles as a charging station so it's always ready to go, but $300 is a lot of money for a gaming headset these days.

Charging station makes it easy to stay powered up ; Crystal-clear mic capabilities ; Intuitive and powerful on-headset controls

Price—this thing is expensive ; Sound isn't what you might expect for $300 ; Base station takes up plenty of desk space

In design, in presentation, in convenience, Astro’s new A50 finally delivers a compelling reason for fans to upgrade their old A50 headset. The charging station is an excellent (albeit ostentatious) bit of work, the motion-sensing auto-on/off is a...

Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station

 

The Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station sounds, looks, and feels fantastic, but carries a high price tag to match its premium features and build.

Excellent sound quality. Very comfortable. Convenient charging cradle.

Expensive. Bundle/cradle only works with either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. No wired option for mobile devices.

Astro Gaming's A50 is the best wireless gaming headset you can buy. It's comfortable, sounds excellent, and its charging cradle is incredibly convenient. It's expensive, but well worth the price if it's in your budget, making it our Editors' Choice. If...
