Gaming isn't just about racking up wins and scoring points. When you pop in your favorite game and settle in for a long playing session, you're really entering a different world. There's so much to enjoy — in-depth stories, heart-pounding action and stunning visuals. Sound is another key component to enjoying your games. Whether you're immersed in the sonic details of a virtual world or communicating with friends, crisp audio is key to your experience.

Get lost in lush, detailed soundscapes with this A50 Wireless Gaming Headset, which delivers high-quality audio when paired with your Xbox One console. Settle in for a long gaming session wherever you're most comfortable thanks to simple connectivity via wireless Kleernet 5.8GHz technology. Customize audio output with three varied EQ settings that let you fine-tune sonic output to your liking. When clear communication is critical, the unidirectional microphone isolates your voice and eliminates background noise to ensure crisp vocal transmission. Plus, you can play as long as you like — the lightweight, adjustable design provides the comfort you need during those long sessions. At the end of the day the headset can be neatly stored on the included stand.

Finally a headset loud enough Posted by: from: on I'm not a pro gamer or spend many hours playing but I decided I wanted to by a headset for my Xbox one to hear all the details in the game, I tried the turtle beach seven pro, 500x and the ELITE 800x and I returned them all because the audio was just too low for my taste even when I turned it at max, I went back and bought the Astro a50 and wow the difference is stunning, the sound is not only 3 times higher than all the turtle beaches I tried it also sounds better to me. The turtle beach elite 800x have many more functions but when it came to design and sound which is what I really care the Astro A 50 turned up to be the perfect headset for me. The only thing I didn't like is the volume wheel feels weird and it's hard to control and find the desired level, I wish they had put a tone to when you reach the min/max levels, hope this review helps others.

Little things, but I love them. Posted by: from: on I got the green/black scheme and I love them. They generally look cool. Wish you could stream music via Bluetooth like my TB 800x and the cups could be a bit more sound isolation but overall I've them. I will buy the new generation, because of the interchangeable parts.

Amazing for an avid gamer. Posted by: from: on I've tried all the other competitors, thankfully these were the last pair I compared as they are amazing! The sound is Crystal clear, highs and lows. But best of all, these are by FAR the most comfortable that I have tried.

unfortunate experience for a longtime astro fan Posted by: from: California on i've owned several astro's and have been a long time fan. there was quite a bit of popping and crackling noises with these. i switch controllers, tried exchanged for another set and several other troubleshooting tips. i really tried to love them as much as my a40's and gen 1 a50s but even after opening a support case with them zach just tried to run me around (i will not make this a review about him even though he was terrible) and wasted my time for days. after a week of troubleshooting and getting run in circles, i finally gave up and very sadly returned them. i felt like i broke up with a longtime girlfriend/boyfriend. it was a sad day.

Top of the line Posted by: from: on I'm still skeptical as I've only had these a few months. It seems I buy a really expensive headphones and they work great for a bit but then either the mic goes out or the speakers start crackling. So far these are great, worth the money.

Absolutely amazing!!! That is all Posted by: from: on I originally bought the Turtle Beach stealth 420....it sounded ok, but on a whim the next time I was at Best Buy I tried on the Astros. Wow...what an incredible difference!!! You hear things you probably shouldn't lol. Anyway if one has the money, consider this a solid investment!!!
