Great audio quality, but had problems.

  • Summary: The sound quality on this headset was incredible, and exceeded my expectations. Playing Call Of Duty I could hear footsteps, and it made it feel like you were really in the game. However, I did have several problems with the headset. The headset would not turn off, had a frequent audio pause, and did not work with the chat adapter (may be the chat adapter). Due to these issues, I will be buying the a40s today with hope that it does not have these problems.

Wrong Headset!

  • Summary: Ok, so i ordered these about a week ago and got them in. The first time i opened the box i got Astro A40's. I have no clue how they mixed these up but i did get the wrong headset. So i used those just to test them out and i was trying to get away from wires and stuff but i really did like the A40's. So anyways once i noticed i got the wrong headset i reordered these and this time i did get the A50's.

Good sound quality but a flawed product

  • Summary: I got two of these reberbs and I have to say Astro must not run quality control on these puppies before shipping them back out. First they do not charge properly 48 hours and the yellow light that indicates charging is still on. In fact it stays on even after you unplug it. This just started today, and its was the reason I replaced the first set, they NEVER charged properly until the indicator turned the proper red.

It's a good headset overall, but compared to other headsets, the price is a stretch

Everything was great but the Mic. Quality was scratchy.

  • Summary: I dont know if this happens on PS3 or Xbox 360, but whenever I talk online, people tell me that the mic is making my voice real loud, which I'm not a loud person, and they tell me it's really scratchy. Other than that, this headset would have gotten a 5/5.

  • Summary: Its an alright headset. Its better than every other one out there, except Steelseries H wireless... Its Not worth $300 though. but the sound quality is good, the chat/mic could be better, its lots of static. I bought these and the steel series at the same time to see which were better, I returned the A50's. The fit is good, fairly comfortable, but you definitely notice them after a night/day of gaming.
