  • Summary: I've owned this headset for about 1 year now I purchased it through this twitter account I follow called IGN deals. Got it for $200. I play regularly everyday for 4+ hours. And I see why there are no reviews for this headset considering it is one of the best and thats just what it's known for.
  • Pros: Easy to use, sounds great. good battery life
  • Cons: mic quality

Astro A50 Wireless Xbox One Gaming Headset Review

2 May 2015
  • Conclusion: Astro have done it again, time and time again they’ve shown me that they can make an exceptional headset that will leave your jaw on the floor. Sure it’ll also leave your bank balance looking pretty beat up, but you only need to test it once to be convinced it was money well spent.
  • Pros: Class-leading sound quality, Flawless wireless signal, Stylish design, Dolby processing, Powerful and clear sound, Exceptional build quality, Comfortable, Rechargeable
  • Cons: Expensive

Astro A50 Multi-Format Wireless Gaming Headset Review

9 September 2013
  • Conclusion: 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 first headset I’ve found that contends with my...

Simply The Best

25 March 2013
  • Excerpt: A couple weeks ago I reviewed the Skullcandy PLYR 2 Wireless Gaming Headset. As an entry-level device, it was pretty good. Getting into the wireless headset arena, cutting your cords with your computer, and experiencing good sound for $129 is not a bad deal.
