Summary: I specifically bought this because of multi-platform and 7.1 Channel support. I find this headset a worthy piece of gaming technology that will serve well for a long time. But for it's price you'd expect a much better mic quality or at least for the manufacturers not to skimp out on the cable...
Pros: I've had this headset over 2 years now and had bought this in 10/31/2013. And to this day I still am using this headset for my computer while gaming, watching movies, listening to music or all at the same time. Here's a list of the pro's on this item: + Very good sound quality and range. Has real...
Cons: Just a few cons that don't really affect the quality of the sound of the product but here are some to list: - Not sure its a con but it fits a little loosely. Often I find it slipping off my head if I look up or down. Fits as long as you don't head bang to your music. In short you won't be able t...
Summary: Had these for 4-5 months now and they have been great. I was nervous about spending so much on headphones but I defiantly don't regret it. I was also nervous of the quality of buying used but they looked like new and had no problems with them. Pros: Great feel Love the wireless.
The A50 is by far the more comfortable headset. The sound is clear and accurate

Summary: I can only compare Astro's A50's to Turtle Beach's DPX21. The A50 is by far the more comfortable headset. The sound is clear and accurate, I forget the headphones are even on my head they are so comfortable. You can wear this headset for hours.
Summary: I was always hesitant about picking up a pair of Astro headsets, primarily because of the price tag. So when I saw a lot of the reviews on here saying the refurbished ones are just as good/new and a hundred dollars cheaper, I took the plunge. I'm so glad I did. YOU WILL TELL THE DIFFERENCE.
Summary: Great sound!! These are awesome! If you can afford to spend the money, and you are a gamer, you will love these. They are comfortable to wear, and the sound is so vivid. I rated a 4 out of 5 only because of the price. Other than that, I love these.
Summary: Work great on my Xbox one and ps4! (Even though it says Xbox 360). Needed a firmware update first, but that was easy, just followed their YouTube video. Obviously used, but came with all necessary cords and original packaging. Haven't tested battery life yet but it seems okay.
... they started to hurt my ears do to the stupid design of the interior ear cup being slanted

Summary: First off i started with the Sony gold headphones unfortunately after am hour they started to hurt my ears do to the stupid design of the interior ear cup being slanted. So i picked up the refurbished astro50s. I gotta admit these things are loud. I mean real loud.
Summary: Sound good, are comfortable and easy to use. They aren't as wonderful as people like to say they are, I was still disappointed, but I don't think there is anything better out there for gamers. Trust me. I have several Turtle Beaches...top to bottom, Skullcandy, and Afterglow's.
Summary: Pros: Great sound Easy to set up Compatible with all of my consoles Great fit Cons No bluetooth No line in for audio an mic to support other devices such as phones and iPads No charge meter indicator showing the charge level of the battery No indicator of chat/game volume balance.
Summary: Good mic quality, comfortable, but for me the battery life is not so great. I had a Logitech G930 for years and its battery was getting bad too, which is why i switched to the A50. I wish they made a cool stand that used Qi wireless charging so no wires were needed at all.
