Astro gaming a50 wireless headset

lost. Gen4 A50s is now more suitable for desktops than before, while still very beautiful, but we will discuss it later. The

Astro A50 wireless gaming headset is surprisingly comfortable. I spoke very lightly because I hope high-end headphones will be comfortable, but since I was disappointed with Sennheiser GSP 670, I was a little worried. The

A50 weighs 380 grams, which you would normally think is too heavy to play. However, with the perfect holding force and padding that I can only describe as a cloud, they stay comfortable throughout the day.

The clips on these clips are very comfortable, but it's worth noting that they need to be adjusted when leaning forward or dancing like crazy, so be careful not to fall off your head. The rectangular holes of the

ear muffs can accommodate quite large ears, but the padding is so soft that even Garry Lineker can wear them without complaint. The plush ear cushions are removable and are located on the plate connected to the headphones via three magnets. The padding is woven with a breathable fabric, which feels lighter than the previous generation A50. The fillers are great for the skin and also for the gamer with glasses, it feels like they sink into the ears and skull.

My ears have never touched these inner walls, but I'm not even sure I can tell you. The inner wall uses the same cushion material as the plush cup, which is also soft and velvety. The

headband is also designed with a bit of padding on top of the head, but more importantly, the headband appears to evenly distribute the weight of the headset, making it feel much lighter than when worn.

For fit, Astro A50 is slightly angled to accommodate a wider head shape. The earbuds can be rotated 90 degrees, giving you the option to fit them comfortably on your shoulders, and due to the low clamping force, they won't throttle you. The

slider fit option feels tighter than the previous generation, but the design is basically the same. There are markings on each post that give you clear instructions for placing the headset on your head.

How can I emphasize that these feelings are not comfortable enough? They appear to be designed to provide a comfortable fit for almost all heads. After using them for so long, I will try to get back to daily driving. What a great headset.

Although the Astro A50 is designed specifically for gaming, they have excellent sound settings and minimal lag, so they are also well suited for neutral listening.

You can hear these details are great, they have a good frequency response, and the sound settings are probably the best I've found on gaming headsets. The lows are prominent and extended, and the mids and highs feel very balanced. The overall sound is clear and it always feels accurate, which is especially suitable for gaming. The

dip type is divided into two parts, a seal and a high quality 40mm neodymium magnet driver. So far, this is the best audio experience I have gotten with gaming headsets, there is nothing to complain about.

Although these are not particularly good at isolation, the stamps are enough to completely immerse me in the audio I am experiencing. In games like Squad, not only is the sound effect clear, but the powerful, undistorted bass is also worth seeing under the continuous firing of guns and mortars. When playing CSGO, accurately locating the enemy's position signal is a piece of cake. I am not sure if I have noticed the sound I heard before, and from an audio point of view, I do feel the advantage. No matter what game I play, the stereo image is correct, which is absolutely correct for the game.

Installing Dolby Atmos makes the movie work better and really draws you into single player campaign missions, especially cutscenes. What's impressive is the out-of-the-box performance without installing any software, they sound amazing, and the lead vocals and instruments are always accurately reproduced.

Split audio (game / chat) was a bit used at first, the chat mix sounded like it was in the foreground and the game audio was in the back. Game audio isn't quieter, but the way it's delivered to the ear is different from the Sennheiser GSP 370 I'm used to.

Finally, the A50s has never lost connection, and it has never produced a hiss like the cheap Corsair HS70s, although the leak is not the best, so avoid using it in a quiet environment. The

Astro A50 gaming headset is equipped with a unidirectional, rotating mute, voice isolation microphone. The

cantilever microphone is not removable, but it is clear. The performance of this microphone is no less than Arctis Pros ClearCast microphone, even better than Sennheiser model. Its clarity may be comparable to the Corsair Virtuoso SE microphone, but it is difficult to distinguish. The microphone sounds complete, and I have no problems with Discord or game chat when I use it. The recording quality is very good, it sounds a little better than the previous generation, but this does not mean that you should use it for streaming, in this sense I would still choose a separate microphone. The noise reduction / processing of the

A50 microphone is top-notch. The microphone does an excellent job of separating background noise from my voice, providing clear and clear commands to the voice server. By using this software, you can use four different noise gate settings to give you better control.

Bonus content "Life". In addition to the incredible build quality, high level of comfort, and excellent audio / microphone performance, the Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headphones have some additional features that entice you to upgrade. The

headphones are wireless via 2.4GHz frequency Connect to a base station. The base station not only looks great, it also has a lot of inputs and can also charge your headphones wirelessly. The

variant here is fully PC and Xbox compatible, and can be swapped out on the back. In addition, the base station will indicate on the screen which one it is currently using. The base station is advertised as locked for a specific console, but headsets of either variant can be connected to both base stations.

On the back of the base station, we see an input / output line, which means you can run your speaker setup through the docking station without having to think about it in Windows settings. There is an auxiliary port and we also saw a USB port on the back, giving you plenty of options.

Unfortunately, Astro A50 only supports wireless connection, but the charging stand is located in front of the desk and I have never lost a charge. The

Astro A50s is equipped with a single-cell lithium-ion rechargeable battery, which can provide uninterrupted use for more than 15 hours (advertisement). I managed to get about 16 hours on a full charge, and it took me about 4 hours for a full charge. Although the 1,517 hours of battery life is a few kilometers from the Sennhisers GSP 370's 100 hours, you don't have to worry about this drop. As mentioned above, since base stations are so convenient, you can put them on automatically and they'll charge right away, giving me infinite power. The

headset also has an automatic sleep timer like the previous generation, which will turn off after eight minutes. The slightest movement will reopen them, so when you grab them, the sound will play when you place them on your head. There is a microUSB charging port on the

handset, if you need to charge these charging ports away from the base station, but the base works great. The

Astro A50 comes with an interesting customization feature. It looks like a gimmick on the surface, but it doesn't affect the performance or function of the headphones, making it very popular. Users can purchase leatherette module kits to replace ear pads and headbands to improve noise isolation. I don't buy mod kits, but it's great to have options, and these ear pads are very easy to replace, which is good for extending the lifespan.

It’s worth noting that you need to buy a gen4 mod kit, because gen3 ear cushions don’t seem to fit the latest models.

As mentioned above, these sounds are available out of the box. They have been tuned to Astro Audio V2, which provides accurate sound reproduction and lifelike images. With Dolby Audio and built-in MixAmp technology, you can enhance your audio experience and fully immerse yourself in the most cinematic games. The

Astro Command Center is easy to master. The equalizer is great, you can enter your own settings and assign it to the EQ button on the right earbud, replacing one of the presets. The weird thing is, you can't control the mic's frequency response like the previous gen3 model, but it works well enough, that it's not something I normally change.

There is no question that this is a superior gaming headset. Wireless performance is incredible, outshining the competition. SteelSeries Arctis Pro is controversial because they are a more versatile pair. The A50s are leaky, have no Bluetooth capabilities, and are generally very bulky, so compared to the Arctis Pros, using them on the go doesn't make much sense. That said, both headphones have similar sound profiles, and while they're closed, their soundstages are great. The comfort of the Astro A50

stands out among other products. Although your ears will get a bit warm over time, its cushioning performance is the best I have ever used. Build quality stands out once again from Corsair, Sennheiser and SteelSeries, they are so durable it is instantly noticeable.

If you can afford the high asking price, I highly recommend the Astro A50 wireless Gen4 gaming headset. They allow me to completely immerse me in a game where audio is king. I have never heard so many location prompts. If you are looking for a headset for gaming only, Astro A50 is my best choice. The

Astro A50 gaming headset is one of the best premium options on the market. For anyone looking for wireless technology, you will not be disappointed, these are great.
