    Great Entry Level Gaming Headset!

    Here is a helpful video that covers more in details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPC3sk94PfA Overall Thoughts: 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.

    Good sound, decent fit, if not a little bulky

    I bought these along with the Arctis 3 (wired) headphones, to try out both and see which I preferred. I ended up keeping both (see my other review). I preferred the Arctis 3 over these for the overall design, but these are great too. The sound is nice and the mic works great. the mic flips up and out of the way, but I like how the Arctis hides back inside the earphone itself. Just a personal preference. These are a little bulky...?... they kind stick out a bit. But surprisingly, they are not heavy or uncomfortable. Ears get warm after several hours of wearing, but I feel that way about most headphones. These sound great with my cell phone too, but no way am I wearing these outside (nerd alert). These are decent low priced wired headphones, don't expect top tier quality, but they are definitely worth the price.

    Currently use this for my PS4 Pro, and the overall quality of the headset is very good. I've used a few other headsets in the past, and they are either very uncomfortable to wear for long or don't last. Sound quality is very good, but of course won't compare to anything you'd pay $150-200 more for. I've had this headset for almost a year now and I don't really have any complaints. But if I must nitpick.. Cons: -No physical button to mute headset (must flip up the mic) -Could be a bit louder -Headset wire a bit too long Pros: -Build is pretty solid -Super comfortable to wear for extended periods of times -Glasses friendly -Good mic quality

    I spent a ton on the A50 (wireless) and it was a horrible experience. The mic made me sound robotic and for whatever reason I would spend 4-5 hours charging and get 30 minutes of use (this happened again after I exchanged for a new one). I bought the A10 even though my thoughts on the brand were tainted and I have to say I’m enjoying these. Sound doesn’t get super loud but it’s comfortable and works the ways it’s intended to.

    I bought this headset to plug directly into my controllers without the need of a mixamp. For that purpose it works well since it has volume control and flipping up the mic to mute works great. The biggest drawback with this headset is that it gets uncomfortable after long gaming sessions, the headset starts putting a lot of pressure on my ears and I have to take it off as it starts to get painful.

    Decent Gaming Headphones

    These headphones worked out great and are about what you would expect for the price. If you don't want to spend the crazy amount that wireless headphones cost then these would be a good substitute. Had a slight problem with them when they were set for just party chat, I couldn't hear anything out of the right headphone. But, when you have them set up for all game audio they work just fine.

    If you’re not looking for super high end gear, you can’t go wrong with the A10. I use it exclusively for Fortnite on the PS4 and the audio comes through clear on where the enemies are when you’re in a fight. These lost a star because they don’t have a mute button. But the mic is clear and stays out of your way. Ear pieces are comfortable to wear for a few hours at a time.

    Good headset for the price. I like the durability and the comfort. You can basically wear all day if you desire. The audio cable is quite long for my liking but overall a good headset. I also like that I can lift the mic up and mute on the fly. Lastly, the headset does not need batteries which are a major plus!

    Very good headset for gamers! The only thing that I can complain about is that if you do plan on using this for a PC, be prepared to buy a pc splitter for the headset! Than again that is the only thing that I can complain about this headset. GREAT sound quality, GREAT microphone quality. Would defintally recommend!!

    So far so good, I cannot complain for the price it is, it is a great value, very comfortable and light and the use of a cable (which may be a downside for some) is great because one less thing I have to worry about to charge. Have and would still recommend to friends and so forth.

    My 11 year old has already gone through two Turtle Beach headsets (apparently these types of things don't last too long.) This one was a bit more expensive, but it seems to be better quality. He says that it's comfortable. Time will tell how long it lasts...

    I think this is a great headset for gaming on a regular basis. The sound is on point. It catches your background noise so make sure to adjust your mic settings. Not that good for hours of gaming. Might feel uncomfortable after 2-3 hours of playing. But overall great headset.

    Great price and great sound from this headset. Fits comfortably over the ear and seems like it’s going to be very durable in the long run. One slight downside is that this headset is a little heavy. With that being said I would still buy again.

    This is a Christmas gift and I thought for sure the gamer would want a wireless headset. He said no to wireless because of the use and charge time. He'd rather have the wire set so he doesn't have to stop playing to charge. I can't give a five star review because it is a gift and he hasn't received yet.

    This is a good starting headset, lets you hear everything going on around you in games and gives you an edge. Friends say I can be a little quiet though through the mic, and can get uncomfortable after a while. But overall gets the job done for a god price.

    I've had this headset since August and i really like it. The reason i am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because you can't adjust the game/chat audio with this headset. It is still a great headset and i definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great headset under a 100 dollars.

    Decent headphones with good sound without costing an arm and a leg. I like the volume controller on the wire so I can easily turn up or down the sound. Fits pretty comfortably over my ears.
