Ok but has issues Posted by: from: on They sound great however I have two major issues with them. 1. There's no way to turn up or down your microphone volume. Sometimes people just can't hear you. 2. They sometimes freeze, when this happens you have no choice but just to let the batteries die this could take up to 8 hours depending if you just charge them.

I didn't want to believe the reviews. Posted by: from: on Being a a previous owner of TB headsets, I decided to try out the Astro A50. I was looking for nice great surround sound with a BOOM! and Astro delivered it. I was very pleased with the sound quality overall even when watching movies. BUT then it came the mic, its terrible! it has no mic monitoring at all!!! Players can hear me in chat but i couldn't hear myself and it came to the point where i had to shout.. No matter what firmware they promise to fix, it will be an external issue. Going back to TB.

NOT COMPLETELY WIRELESS!!!!!! Posted by: from: on I purchased this product for the simple reason that I hate cords while I game and I love Halo and the Master Chief. This item is NOT completely wireless it just runs off batteries, you still have to plug a wire in to the controller defeating the purpose of it being "WIRELESS". For $300 it should be completely wireless. Besides that downfall the sound is AMAZING!!!!

Simply amazing Posted by: from: on The headset sounds better than my Bose and beats headphones. I love that I can use them with all my devices ps4,pc,xbox one,etc. I also like that if I want to just use them for chat I can still hear my home theater system(with a lil extra volume). All in all these are the best I should know I tried like 10 other headsets before I found this one.

Amazing Headset Posted by: from: Schaumburg on I bought this headset for two reasons. One It Looks Amazing! The 117 Spartan Style is Fantastic! Secondly, I have heard great things about Astro's. From what I've experienced with mine, everything I head was spot on accurate. I use them for my PC, Xbox, and PS4 (Yes... PS4 I enjoy all games).

Best Headset I Have EVER Used! Posted by: from: on I used a Razer Kraken Pro with Razer Surround Pro on my laptop for a long time and recently my laptop's become too old to play games, and with computer gaming hardware constantly changing as much as I love computer gaming I decided to sit back and wait to see how things go and take the opportunity to go back when I believe the time is right. Since then I started investing a lot of time into my Xbox One and been through 5 headsets Microsoft Stereo Headset, Turtle Beach XO ONE Stereo Headset, Turtle Beach XO FOUR Stealth Stereo Headset, Turtle Beach Stealth 500X DTS 7.1 Surround Sound, & Astro A50 Limited Halo Edition Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound. The Turtle Beaches are a complete joke they break easy and the sound quality especially at the first Surround Sound Headset Turtle Beach did for Xbox One being the Stealth 500x are a joke in themselves you almost feel like you are listening to a really badly made video game, but then you think wait a minute it's not the game it's the *** headset. <(I don't watch movies or TV shows on my Xbox, I only play games or watch YouTube.# Within one month of buying them they started to crack a little on both headbands just above the ear piece. The Microsoft Stereo Headset was a lot better had good bass and you actually had to keep the volume down to at least 60% to avoid blowing your eardrums out, unlike the 2 other Turtle Beach headsets I tried being the XO FOUR Stealth & XO ONE they were ok with the bass boost, but the volume was still very low at max. Finally after deciding I wasted too much time, energy, and money into Turtle Beach and Microsoft doesn't make a Surround Sound headset (yet anyway) I went with the Astro A50 Limited Halo Edition at the cost extreme cost of $300.00 plus $39.99 for extra protection and I never felt a better headset that sounded incredible, has great bass, treble, and feels like a pillow on my head in all my games even compared to my Razer Kraken Pro. Point of the story is if you really hate wasting money on Stereo headsets or Surround Sound headsets, but they sound bad or break easy just go with an Astro A50 and you won't find a better headset at least for the Xbox One, also here's the real deal breaker it's compatible with both PS4 & PC as well as Xbox one, meaning one Astro A50 for all 3, the other versions are just for branding I think, you may have to Google instructions on how to set it up for the other two systems if you want to know more. I could be wrong, but it may work on PS3 & Xbox 360 as well, You may need to buy extra adapters and what not for certain features to work.

Works fantastic Posted by: from: on Gaming is taken to a whole new level! Crisp and clear sound as well as interactive feature when talking with friends. No more garbled sounds from the other player this head set takes you there in the game with no outside interference!

Not for me! Posted by: from: Utica, N.Y. on Well these are just another in a long line of headsets that suck for Xbox one. They absolutely are not loud enough, nor do they interpret 7.1 sound well enough to justify the 300 usd price tag. I also don't get the feeling that they will be able to last for years to come. Further, they are heavy on your head. Everything you don't want in gaming headsets.
