The Astro A10 is a great entry level gaming headset for $60! This is Astro's first entry-level gaming headset and now competing against others such as the HyperX and Turtle Beach, which are budget friendly gaming headsets as well. The Astro A10 comes in Blue for PS4, Green for XBOX ONE, and Red for PC. However, all of these headphones will work for any console or PC. For example, you can buy the Blue one and use it for your XBOX ONE or buy the Green for your PS4 so it just depends on which color you like. It comes with a 6.5 foot cable, which is detachable, and also has the in-line volume slider. So overall, the Astro A10 gaming headset are very impressive offering nice features, but are they the right headset for you? Let's discuss!
As far as the design, the Astro A10 gaming headset is mainly made out of plastic and looks very sleek and has a clean finish!! The only part that does not look the best is the headband on the top because it has a rubbery cheap feel and not the most flashy pair of gaming headset. It's not a big deal but just something to take note of. As far as flexibility goes, the Astro A10 very flexible and has a really nice range of motion, you can really stretch these and twist them a ton. Also, the A10 is very sturdy and won't break easily because they were designed very well and tough!
Comfort wise, The A10's are pretty comfortable. The memory foam ear cushions have a plush feel to them and are very soft with great padding support around the gaming headset. The top padding is the part that could of been improved because it's not long enough so when it sits on your head, it covers a small portion. The smaller ear cups may not feel comfortable for everyone, especially if you have bigger ears because it may not be big enough. Overall, I would say the Astro A10's are pretty comfortable. If you are going to be gaming, you can easily wear these for hours and hours with not much discomfort.
So next is the sound and microphone quality, a factor when trying to decide which gaming headset to pick. The sound is definitely impressive when gaming. You can hear things such as footsteps very clearly which create a competition edge over the opponent. When driving racing games, it sounds very clean and you can hear screeching tires and engines which create an immersive gaming experience. Now I will say the sound is not anything over the top when it comes to music. It's not going to have a ton of bass, detailed mids and highs, and provide any sort of clarity. The Astro A10's are just a great pair of gaming headset to put on and start gaming! As far as the microphone, it's pretty good and performs well. When you talk, friends will be able to hear you clearly while gaming. I wouldn't say it's the best or anything but it definitely gets the job done. If the mic is too close to your mouth, then it may sound a bit muffled but if you just tilt it away a little, then you won't have to worry. Overall, the Astro A10 gaming headset have great sound microphone quality for gaming and definitely impressive.
Overall, the Astro A10 gaming headset is outstanding for $60. The A10 has a very sleek design and provides a lot of flexibility where you can really stretch them out and twist them a lot and won't break easily. They are pretty comfortable and can easily be worn to game for hours and hours. The sound and microphone quality are very impressive when it comes to gaming and can provide an edge against the opponent with the clean sound. The Astro A10 may not sound the best for music but these are mainly for gaming which in that category perform very well. The best way to summarize is that if you're on a budget and looking for a gaming headset then the Astro A10 are a great option to consider.
