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 visual and for marketing purposes only.

Simply The Best

GIN
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. Almost as an afterthought, I was also sent the Astro A50 Wireless headset to review as well. Skullcandy bought Astro, so I suppose they wanted me to look at their entire product lineup.

Astro A50 Headset Review

PlayStation Universe
4 February 2013
  • Summary: 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 play a game without one.
  • Pros: Stunning sound quality, 10-hour battery life, Wireless, wireless, wireless
  • Cons: Dependency on optical for audio

Astro A50 Review

Digitaltrends
30 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Under every testing scenario, the A50 continuously impressed. This headset nails all the feature points you’d expect from high-quality gear such as auto shutoff, hassle-free wireless connection, and long battery life. But more importantly, the A50 made every game title we played more engrossing and entertaining with their extremely visceral and powerful sound.
  • Pros: Immersive virtual sound environment, Pristine clarity, Comfortable design, Great balance
  • Cons: Slightly bright treble, EQ switch doesn’t deliver

Astro A50 Headset Review

Strategy Gaming Online
17 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Nearly every PC accessory manufacturer out there now has some kind of sound product on the market. Corsair's got speakers and headsets, while companies that traditionally have made input devices, like Logitech and Razer, have been selling audio stuff for years. There are a lot of choices out there, but few of these products have quite the same quality as Astro - who makes little more than audio products - and their line of wired and wireless audio headsets.
  • Pros: Excellent Sound over Reliable 5.8GHz Wireless Band
  • Cons: Prohibitive Price

Astro A50 Wireless

Gamereactor
22 July 2014
  • Conclusion: Das schon eine Weile erhältliche Astro A50 Wireless ist wie seine direkten Konkurrenten in der Preisklasse um 300 Euro beim Sound absolut erstklassig. Satter Bass, klare Höhen, ausgewogene Mitten - das ist einfach sofort hörbar sehr überzeugend. Der Klang, übertragen durch 5.8-Ghz-Funktechnik, ist wirklich mit das beste, was es in dieser Preisklasse für Videospieler gibt. Das Setup ist narrensicher einfach.
  • Pros: erstklassiger Sound, angenehmer Sitz und Tragekomfort
  • Cons: teuer, kein ausreichend langes USB-Ladekabel und kein Ladenetzteil dabei

Test: Astro A50

XboxFront
27 June 2013
  • Summary: Es gibt sie immer wieder, die „Ausnahme-Hardware“. Zu den besten Peripherien und Zubehörartikeln gesellt sich in unserer Hall of Fame nun neben dem CSR-Elite Wheel von fanatec oder dem Drum Rocker von Alesis Studiosounds auch ein Headset. Das Astro A50 gehört zu diesen Ausnahmeerscheinungen, dessen Wert man nie zu schätzen verlernt. Allerdings muss man für diesen Genuss beim deutschen Exklusivhändler Roxxgames auch erst einmal 289,00 Euro auf den Tisch legen.
  • Pros: + sehr stilvolles und kompaktes Design, + extrem hoher Tragekomfort, + seht gute Materialanmutung, + exzellente Verarbeitung, + sehr gute Dämmung der Umgebungsgeräusche, + hervorragendes Klangbild, + exzellente Kanalortung, + sehr leistungsstarker Verstärker, + hohe Akkuleistung, + drei verschiedene Presets, + störungsarmes 5.8 Ghz Band, + automatische Abschaltung bei Signalverlust, + Updatefähig (Mixamp sowie Headset), + Mixamp-Stromversorgung via USB, + Headset-Stän...
