A decent headset, but not worth the money. Astro Customer support is awful as well.

  • Summary: I'll start by saying I did like this headset at first. It's very comfortable, sounded great (aside from what the astro forums believe is a buzz due to the audio gate). I'll start by saying that I was using this on a PC with optical audio and USB for chatting.

Not worth the $300

  • Summary: I received this as a gift for Christmas and did not have the best experience. The first issue was that the original headset did not work properly, the left ear cup did not produce sound and the firmware did not update on the headset so I exchanged it.

Mic Gate Noise

Michael /., Newegg
13 October 2014
  • Summary: I liked that the headset was solid and very comfortable but am annoyed by the buzzing sound.
  • Pros: Though the stand may feel cheap, the headset itself is solid. You can feel the quality and sturdiness of the device. I've had this for almost two years and the headset still holds up really well.
  • Cons: This issue will drive you mad and as of right now there is no fix: the mic gate noise (a buzzing sound that comes from the right ear cup) activates whenever you speak into the mic. Normally you won't be able to hear this if you're listening to music and the volume is above a whisper but during mo...

  • Summary: Today I got my Refurbished A50. For a start - it's noticeably used. They have a scratches and scrapes. And now I spend a two hours already trying to get it worked with my PS4. The surround button is not turning on and I have no sound. I update headphones and mixamp to latest firmware..

  • Summary: While I won't give a 1* review because I know Astro is capable of making good products (Love my A40's), these refurbished A50's are garbage. I was pretty excited to get these at a further discount while they were on sale and had my fingers crossed that I'd get one of the better sets, I was sorely...

  • Summary: Top quality sound no doubt. Worth $300? No way! I went through two, TWO defective units and I've finally given up on Astro. First some positives, without a doubt the most comfortable headset that has ever graced my head.

Right ear Buzzing!!!

Choi Yun jin, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I have recently purchased an Astro a50 and am using it for both my PS4 and my computer, however on both the PS4 and my computer, i hear a constant buzzing sound in my right ear. It is very annoying and I'm not sure if I can get over it. This mostly happens when the mic is down.
