5GHZ WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY
Ditch the cables with confidence. ASTRO’s wireless technology provides robust, low-latency performance by operating at a higher frequency. This keeps you in perfect sync with your gameplay and eliminates interference from other wireless devices, allowing you to focus on winning. No chat cable required on any console.
DOLBY HEADPHONE 7.1 SURROUND
Whether it’s stereo or multi-channel surround sound, the A50 delivers accurate audio no matter the source. Spatial placement and directivity are crucial in competitive play and the A50 was engineered with this in mind. The end result is a lifelike, cinematic gaming experience that gives you the ability to pinpoint various objects and sounds in a three-dimensional space.
ASTRO BASE STATION
No one likes a complicated setup. The A50 headset automatically pairs with the ASTRO Base Station for frustration-free connectivity, while magnetic charging allows for effortless docking when the headset is not in use. The Base Station’s front display indicates battery life and charging status to ensure you never get stuck with a dead headset. The rear 3.5mm input/output supports additional audio sources, giving you the ability to take phone calls, overlay background music, or output your game audio and chat to external capturing devices.
PC COMPATIBILITY AND SUPPORT
The A50 offers multi-platform compatibility, making it simple to switch between console and PC/Mac modes. PC gamers can access the ASTRO Command Center software via USB and adjust various audio settings and levels accordingly. PC gamers can also balance game sound and voice chat when using separate chat applications such as Discord or Skype.
ASTRO COMMAND CENTER SOFTWARE
The innovative ASTRO Command Center software offers enhanced flexibility and control beyond default mix settings. The A50 has three new EQ presets (ASTRO, Pro, and Studio), which can also be accessed via the headset for fast and easy selection. Users can also independently adjust input and output levels, including Sidetone and Noise Gate. Profiles can then be updated, saved, and shared. The software also provides automatic notification of product firmware updates when they become available.
PRECISION MICROPHONE WITH FLIP
ASTRO Gaming was conceived in the pits of eSports tournaments, so we know the importance of clean voice chat. The flexible, durable microphone offered on the A50 provides clear, low noise communication and is optimized for Xbox One & PC/Mac. And with the ASTRO Command Center software, gamers can fully adjust microphone levels and other settings depending on their environment and preferences.
COMFORT & DURABILITY
ASTRO headsets were designed for marathon gaming sessions. The ear cushions feature cloth for maximum comfort, backed with synthetic leather for the best acoustic performance. Wear glasses? Not an issue. The A50 features lightweight, yet rugged construction with premium materials for a pressure-free fit that won’t overheat your head.
MOD KIT READY
The A50 headset already provides great comfort and sound out-of-the-box, but the optional A50 Mod Kit* (sold separately) gives users the ability to upgrade to synthetic leather noise-cancelling ear cushions and a padded headband. The cushions provide increased noise cancellation and limit sound leakage for quiet environments.
*Not compatible with other headsets.
Absolute Immersion. We've optimized the new A50 to make it the best fully wireless companion for your next-gen console. Broadcasting in interference-free wireless 5 GHz, you'll experience low latency gameplay in Dolby Headphone Surround Sound. With the ASTRO Command Center software, the A50 allows you to tune every input and output parameter including mic level adjustments and creating your own EQ modes. The new precision boom microphone is voice chat optimized for next-gen consoles and features flip-up mute functionality. The A50 headset is lightweight, easily adjustable, and Mod Kit ready, allowing you to transform your headset by swapping components like a synthetic leather headband and ear cushions for improved noise isolation. And when you're done, the new Base Station makes charging and pairing your headset simpler than ever.
Top customer reviews
-Sound quality is absolutely incredible, Dolby 7.1 surround sound is crystal clear
-Super comfortable. Ear cups and headbands are breathable foam, and honestly the most adjustable headset on the market, there's no notches on the headband to set it to, it's a spring on each side so it's adjustable down to the millimeter
-The battery life is 14 hours, and you actually see a real time digital display of your remaining charge on the charging stand itself, so you always know how much time you have left
-The microphone is really sensitive, there's never a problem picking up my voice and the snap up to mute on the mic always works. Absolutely no complaint.
-They're true wireless. No wires from your headset to anything else. Just one cable from the charging stand to aux output on the xbox, and then one to USB in the back of the xbox for power. That's it.
-It doesn't say this on the advertising but there's actually even an aux in port on the back of the charging port, so you can plug in an aux cord and play your own music straight from your phone or iPad or whatever.
-Wireless distance is really good. I can walk out of my room, and down the hall of my dorm with it's cinderblock walls and still get signal.
-It's 1.8 lbs, so it can be a bit heavy at times, but, this is easily remedied by just shifting the headband forward or backward half an inch, problem solved.
-If you don't use/charge the headset for about 3 days, it can lose it's charge. But again, toss the headset on the charger when you pass by every day or two and let it charge for a bit, easy fix.
-The microphone is SUPER sensitive, so others can often hear your breathing or you're just generally loud. But, these little windscreens fit PERFECTLY over the head of the microphone, sometimes I can even blow a fan directly in my face and my friends can't hear it. And they do it without really compromising how loud you are to them. https://tinyurl.com/AstroA50-Microphone-Windscreen
-Sometimes when I boot up my xbox and turn on the headset, I can't hear any volume whatsoever. This problem is ALWAYS fixed by turning the headset off, unplugging the power cord from the charging stand, plugging it back in and turning the headset back on. It takes 10 seconds (if that) and has fixed any and all audio problems I've had as long as I've used these.
This headset is the best I've found in my hours an hours and HOURS of research across tech forums, amazon, reading hundreds of customer reviews, tech specs, all that. I was iffy at first because of the "horror stories" of Astro but this headset has far surpassed any expectations I've had for them, and they're absolutely top of the line. They're so good, I'm honestly considering buying them for my best friend. And I'm a 19 year old college student with a minimum wage job, that's how good they are. And if it wasn't clear, I'm not being paid or getting a discount to say any of this, I just really love this headset.
The Astro A50, however, have amazing sound, good depth and bass, feel great to the touch, have a velvety cup that feels great on the ears, are comfortable to wear for even hours, and the charging base that charges without wires adds a great touch to make it easy to charge and also look great as a showpiece. In order for them to be used wirelessly, they require a USB connection as well as utilizing the optical (fiber optic) port on the back of the XBOX. With those, however, these are fully wireless and work great. No issues with static, connection problems, or range.
I simply love these and highly recommend paying the extra money for something quality that you'll enjoy and be proud of!
Since we've had no problems, we haven't experienced Astro's customer service or lack thereof.
