ASTRO Announce A50 Wireless Gaming Headset

Posted on July 24, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Are you looking for a pair of headphones that may never leave your ears? ASTRO’s latest wireless gaming headset may come at a hefty price, $299.99, but we can guarantee they’ll probably sound better than what you’re using right now. If you need a set of headphones that will put you right into the action of Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty is there any other choice?

Admittedly, we’re not the kind of gamers to spend more on our headphones than we did on the console we’re using them on, but there is no denying there is a market for high quality headphones. You see these things everywhere: whether its demoing a game at a retail chain or convention or watching pro-gaming high quality headphones have a place in the gaming landscape.

The A50 Wireless Headset does feature a nice catalog of premium features like the ability to control voice communication volume and game audio independently on the fly and automatic tuning that customizes your experience to whichever device you’re using, whether it’s listening to music from your PC or fragging n00bs on Call of Duty through your Xbox 360. Heck, the whole this sweetened by the fact that these badboys support Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound!

Are the A50’s an instant buy? Probably not for the majority of gamers, they are certainly at least not an impulse purchase but if you’re seriously considering upgrading to a wireless headset the A50 seems to fit the bill perfectly.

Astro has also released the following 1 minute long promotional trailer:
