    In a world of pricey headsets ...

    Gaming headsets can be an interesting case study in the art of price & features! It's easy to find headsets either in stores or on-line for $150 or higher. I've owned the PS4 since launch & had used the PS4 Gold Wireless headset until the hinges failed (which is a well documented issue). It has a TON of features but can be pricey. During my trip to Best Buy I wanted something with a lower price tag as well as a wired headset. I'm a fan of wireless however I didn't want to mess with yet another gaming accessory where I had to make sure it was always charged. This brings me to my Dec 2017 purchase of the A10 headset. I stood in the headset isle at Best Buy reading headset reviews on my phone. The A10 included a wired connection & a price tag of $59.99 - both where what I was looking for. After having the headset now for over a year I would highly recommended the A10 to any gamer or parent looking for a headset for their child. Having a less than durable headset in the past has made me cautious, however I can say the A10 has held up. I liked it so much I bought the Xbox version for my son. Stand Out Features: Audio Quality Noise Cancellation Wired Connection (no batteries needed) Comfort (well padded) My only "issue", if you want to call it that, is the lack of channel mixing between the game audio & chat audio. This feature is something the PS4 Gold headset does extremely well (the console offers this feature however it's not the same as a headset that splits the channels). The reason this isn't really an issue is this feature isn't something you'll find in this price point. The A10 also doesn't offer true surround (via either 5.1 or 7.1). Again -- this a feature set you won't find at $60. For these features games will need to look at headsets like the Sony PS4 Gold ($99) or Sony PS4 Platinum ($159.99) headsets or the Astro A40 + MixAmp ($249.99).

    Astro has always been known for their expensive headsets, but when this cheaper one was announced, I was skeptical. I watched some early YouTube reviews, and everyone praised this headset, so I decided to purchase this as my new one. This headset has the same audio drivers (minus surround sound) as the A40s and still sound awesome and can get pretty loud! They are a lot more sturdier than I thought they were going to be, and these are built to last for a long time. Youtubers were encouraged to put this headset in extreme conditions, some were bending, someone even slammed a door on them. Each resulted in them working 100% fine (although the door one scuffed up the headset a tiny bit but that's expected). The headset is also comfortable to wear for a long period of time. It obviously isn't the most comfortable thing due to its price point, but it does a good job at it and I enjoy it a lot. I recommend this headset for anyone looking to not spend a whole lot. This headset by Astro will give the others a run for their money. You can even convert this to surround sound if you want by purchasing a mix amp online, but then you'll have extra cords, but that is up to you. This headset is also very simple. Just a headphone jack is needed and this headset is compatible. I use it with my PS4, and my Nintendo Switch.

    The Astro A10 headset is Astro's first entry in the budget priced headsets. I grabbed this to replace my 2 year old Sony Gold Headset. In a lot of ways, it feels like a strong upgrade. In a direct comparison: I miss the Gold's wireless factor, but love how the A10 does not need charging, ever. The A10 also has a mic that is not removable, but my friends online say that I sound way better. The ear cups are a little smaller than the Gold, and I will say that for the first few times I felt a little uncomfortable but now I can wear them for quite awhile without any issues. The fact that I never have to worry about charging and that I sound better make me happy with my purchase. I recommend them.

    I was waiting to get the A10's for about a month after seeing they were announced. I really didn't want to blow a lot of money on a pair of headphones, since I have nice listening headphones and these would just be for gaming with my brother. The feel is not bad. Foam on the ear doesn't squeeze the ears and is relatively soft. The plastic on the band feels stronger than turtle beach headphones at the same price. The mic is not flimsy. The sound quality is quite nice with good staging for hearing noises in the game. It's very bright and clear sound. The flip-up mute feature is nice and the inline volume is subtle meaning it won't feel like a big block in the cable. Plus the versatility for my Xbox one and ps4 Pro make it a great choice. For $60: It's a really great headset. I would highly recommend.

    Budget Headset from Quality Maker

    I hate to admit it but I was a little skeptical on buying these at first because of the mixed reviews, but I'm glad I did because I'm very pleased with how this headset performs so far. Pros: - Very comfortable, you will have to adjust the headset accordingly if you have a bigger head, but overall it's pretty comfortable. - The sound quality is amazing, I used to own the Turtle Beach X12's until the screws on each side of the headset keeping it together broke, but the Turtle Beaches never had this good of sound quality, honestly impressed with how efficient the headset is money wise. - Adding onto the sound quality, the bass kicks SUPER hard, honestly love it because it just sounds good, but I thought I'd add that just because.

    I walked into my local store and told the employee that I needed a headset for PubG, but didn't want to spend too much. Without hesitation, the young man took me to this headset and said that they are the best bang for the buck.they we're sold out of the Xbox branded headsets, so thank God they are universal. OMG they work very well. It was like I had been missing a large chunk of the game when I was playing without a proper headset. That's how I would describe these. A proper headset for 60 bucks. Sturdy and comfortable. Sometime I go to lan parties at a buddy's house. They pack in a laptop bag with my Xbox one without breaking. I wear them for hours without them feeling like a vice, and they don't loosen over time either. The sound is very detailed and directional. I'm sure there are better headsets out there, but seriously doubt that are at this price point.

    This is the first headset I have owned. It is great to be able to converse with your friends while playing games with them online. I have not had any connection problems. I have wireless controllers so I didn't see the point in spending another $30-$40 on a wireless headset. I just plug the cord from the headset directly into the controller, which still allows me to move about freely. The sound quality is great as well. I can hear the tears drops falling as I hang fiddy on my friends in Madden.

    After the first day of use, they're really comfortable and sound great. Definitely an upgrade from my Turtle Beaches XO Ones. I have an xbox one, but I prefer blue over green, and after messaging the Astro people directly, they said the only difference between the Astro 10s for xbox and ps4 was the color. I bought the 2-year warranty on it as well, so I'll update this review if I have problems within that time.

    I bought this headset for my PS4 recently and I love it. Before now I had the $15 turtle beach cheap headset and moving from that cheap one to this luxe one is life changing. I’m hearing things I never heard before. And the ear pieces are hella comfortable for my head. My favorite feature is the way that you mute yourself. You just lift the microphone part and it mutes you. There is no hassle of accidentally hitting he mute button while you game. It is perfect.

    $200 Caliber Headset

    This headset produces excellent sound and is extremely comfortable. Easily as good as the higher priced and very popular Astro A40's. I do wish that there was a mute switch in line instead of having to raise the mic to mute. You also may want to invest in the mixamp if you want to further customize the game and chat audio levels. Oh, don't forget these are universal... just because the blue ones say they are for PS4 doesn't mean you can't use them for XBox or PC as well.

    Quality Headphones for a mid range price.

    My brother recommended these for me and they are fantastic. Really worth the money. Budget headphones are usually pretty low quality. This is mid range pricing but i would suggest saving for one. The quality is impressive. However, be aware that it is a wired device. It is not wireless. Which some don't like. It doesnt need charging so its really good for those who forget to charge their devices.

    Been gaming for years and have had my share of high end headsets for gaming, these are good for those who have been at the top of headsets and want good comfort for a far price. Between a 1 to 5 I give these a 4 1/2 good fit,sound is good and the headsets fill solid for the price not like a plastic toy that will break in a month great buy.

    Great headset with good quality speakers and mic, at first I wasn’t too sure about getting it cause of how cheap they were compare to the A40s and A50s and to my surprise they sound just as good as the other two (I know this cause I own the A50s) sure you have features on the other two but for 60 bucks your getting a real good quality product.

    For being a cheaper headset this one is really good the audio is on point and it’s pretty loud. The design is great and it’s really hard to break these headsets. It’s also universal so it makes it a plus just for that even though it’s a wired headset. I would definitely recommend this product especially if you’re on a budget and need something that’s affordable. This one is it, trust me!

    BETTER THAN CHEAP TURTLE BEACH

    Lord knows how many headsets my 15 year old has gone thru.....all have been Turtle Beach. They are cheap plastic and some of them the transmission stops between the PS4 and headset. He likes the oversized ear cups AND the cushion at the top of the headset (sits on the top of head). He hasn't complained yet, so it gets the parents stamp of approval!

    As a (console) gamer on a budget I’d definitely recommend these. They work very well and after over a year of use they’re still holding up with no damage. It connects through a 3.5mm jack so it works for basically anything, not just a PS4. I also find them to be very comfortable for prolonged periods of gaming.

    These headphones are awesome. They have good quality sound. Very durable. The mic works well, my friends said my voice came in pretty clear without any break ups or issues. They are pretty good for listening to music too! Overall, great product. I also love the flipping up the mic to mute it, pretty clever...

    This headset is perfect for not only the average gamer but also pros. The sound quality is top of the line and after playing for hours the headset will still sit comfortably on your head. I’ve dealt with many headsets in the past and this was by far my favorite for its comfort,design, and sound quality.
