We got to plat with the Astro A50 Wireless Headset. I’ve been a bit out of touch with new hardware for a few months and it was great to get back into things.
I’ve heard of Astro before but never had the opportunity to play with any of their products. Below is my Video review and I will also put up a small write up of my thoughts.
I’m not that good with videos yet but I want to start doing more of them going forward. Please give your thoughts and comments below.
The Astro A50 is a great and good looking headset. It has all the little extras you need, especially all the cables and the stand. The headset itself is very strong but still light at the same time, the ear cups fit comfortably over your ear and the surround sound you experience will blow you away.
The price is a bit hectic but comparing it to other brands with the same quality and specs it is on par. The new version of the A50 is being released soon so hopefully prices might drop a bit and you can get this supper headset for a bit cheaper.
A well rounded and quality headset, the Astro A50 is a gamers dream!
