Summary: After 11 months the headset started presenting crackling sounds. Company more or less told me too bad, so sad. For the price you pay for these, it really shouldn't be that way. Moving back to a more reasonable price and company. Logitech.

Summary: there are many other headphones that can blow these ones of the wall at half or even a quarter of their price, also the money you spend on these headphones dont really go into sound but it goes into annoying cosmetics like having two different volume controls THAT DO THE SAME THING the only...
Summary: Headset stopped powering on and would not charge. Contacted Astro support about the issue and old me it was an internal defect. However, since I was three months out of warranty they couldn't help and referred me to their eBay store to buy a new headset.
Summary: For 300$ it's not what you should be getting, then again most gaming headsets are that way, I picked my pair up, the quality is sub-par, and the user has VERY little room to adjust the sound. Go with the G930, its only 100$, and in my opinion is better than these.
Summary: I love my A40 headset, but I ordered this refurbished and also a brand new HALO edition and both had the right headphone buzzing problem. If you're okay with the right ear emitting a loud buzzing every time the mic picks up noise, these headphones really are the perfect set.
IF YOU HAVE A 5G WIFI NETWORK THIS HEADSET IS NOT FOR YOU.

Summary: This many be the most important review you read about this product. I am not hating on Astro, in fact I love the audio quality that my A50s provide and in addition they are extremely comfortable. HOWEVER, they have one MASSIVE design flaw that Astro refuses to change or acknowledge.
Summary: Overall I really liked this headset and was sad to have to return it due to one serious design flaw. The outside cover of the right earpiece is actually a type of rocker switch for Voice/Game volume control.
Summary: I received the refurbished Astro A50 and followed the instructions in updating the firmware in both the transmiter/module and the headset. The headset had difficulty pairing but after about 15 minutes it finally paired. I connected it to my PS4 and the audio from the PS4 was great.
