  • 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

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

Tom's Guide
2 March 2015
  • Summary: 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.

Review: Astro A50 7.1 Wireless Headset

GameAxis
5 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Nothing enhances the gaming experience like a nice headset. Surround sound creates an immersive experience, and turns the footsteps of a foe into a dead giveaway of his location. Single player campaigns become journeys you won’t want to back out of.

ASTRO Gaming A50 Battlefield 4™ Edition Review

Game Chronicles
4 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Don’t judge the hardware by the software it chooses to affiliate itself with. While Battlefield 4 continues to be a broken mess that somehow seems to get worse with each supposed patch, the good news is that relationship that game shares with the new ASTRO Gaming A50 Battlefield 4™ Edition is purely...

  • Summary: Finding a good gaming headset really shouldn't be as hard as it is. And yet for the longest time, I couldn't find a decent set of gaming headphones. Until Astro came along, that is. It seemed simple enough: I like playing video games with headphones.

Astro A50 Multi-Format Wireless Gaming Headset Review

eteknix.com
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...
  • Pros: 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 and easy to use, Swapping between systems is ...
  • Cons: 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 at £200.

Simply The Best

  • 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.
