    Sometimes the headset seems to just not go up in volume, I've never dropped it and always thought it was low battery but then learned it just happens normally. I love the audio on the headset honestly one of the best sounds I've had. But hardware felt cheap for the amount charged.

    The overall quality of the headset is great except the sound it makes when the battery gets low is really annoying.

    These are very comfortable and have pretty good sound quality. The battery life could be a little better but it is more than acquitted for most people.

    Astros are a great product but these A20s I purchased about a year ago are NOT for serious gamers. Echoing Mic if you turn your headset to full volume, battery life isnt great. Personally I just upgraded to A40s and the price difference speaks for itself. How this helps someone

    Have tried pretty much all of the ither headset out there trying to find a decent wireless model for xbox that didnt have commection issues. Have used the turtle beaches as well as the more expensive a50. For half the price of the a50 these cant be beat. Amazing sound using dolby atmos for xbox clear no hissing or interference and awesome battery life to go with it

    This headset is great! I got it at a discounted price as well which is a bonus! The ear pad size is perfect for Breathability also. The only "Issues" I have are the top headband and charging, the headband in my opinion has a little bit less padding than I would like. I recently had a minor issue with charging, the light that indicates the headset's power stopped working so I had to stop using it. Thankfully it was fixed when I unplugged the USB to the Xbox. All around it is a great headset and I 100% recommend it!

    The pros outweigh the cons big in this truly 100% wireless headset. With the help of the new windows sonic for headphones which is free on Xbox one. This gives you a surround sound audio of virtual 7.1 surround sound. If you prefer a more spacial sound you can pay for the dolby atmos for headphones on xbox which is just a couple notches above windows sonic but well worth the $12. This headset is pretty great. I play Ghost Recon and COD and I must say these things give you incredible sound and can be tailored (pc needed). With your pc u can adjust the sound to your liking or just import other players sound setting for fps's or rpg's or whatever your into. I have tinkered with mine on my own as well as well as imported other setting from other players. It has quality sound, a great mic (friends say I am very clear) and is just a touch above (in my opinion) the turtle beach stealth 700 that came out in the same time frame. I have both, I would recommend these over the TB 700 but if you are looking for easiest set up with just an app to make small changes to your listening then I would go with the TB 700. If you are serious about gaming and want a great mic and the ability to modify the sounds to what more important to you like footsteps preset, an rpg preset and may just an arcade style preset, you can do that. The astro feels a bit more solid that the TB 700 and is pretty comfy. Neither one weighs a lot so extended sessions are not and issue and I have not run out of battery on either one. Bottom line is if you want customization for different games or play styles, go with the astro a20. This is a solid headset and offers great sound and mic and imo is better than the competition in this price range of $150.

    I'm enjoying the A20 headset after about 10 hours into use. My background is I have audiophile grade and gaming headsets. This headset is closest to my Astro A50's (gen one) that is why I upgraded for easier connection to Xbox one X. Below are my Pros and Cons with this headset. Pros: Comfortable-the headset does not look comfy, but it's. The headset is semi open back with a small bit of passive noise cancelation. The earpads go over my big ears so I'm happy. Great Sound-Use the ACC to put some good eqs on here and it shines. You can use simulated surround on xb1 with Windows Sonic or use Dolby Atmos. Also learn to balance game and chat on the headset or you will have issues. Battery-8 hours straight and it's still going, hoping I get close to 15 hours. Cons:low volume-not happy with this as this headset only supplies 40mm drivers and it would appear Astro tuned the volume down to increase battery life. At max volume its fine, but it's nice to go up a notch like my A50s. Just be aware if this is a big deal to you. Microphone-it was super tough to adjust the mic to a good level and noise gate. I have multiple consoles and use a optical passthrough, I got it to work but absolutely requires ACC to tweak. Requires Update out of box-if you are reading these, as soon you get these tether to your pc and update firmware. That will fix your issues and also a hard restart will fix most anything else that happens Overall, this is a great headset if you can get it for 99 bucks like I paid. Any more and I would require higher volume levels for sure. Hopefully after break in the volume is a small bit louder.
