Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset - Black/Gold is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work, and software suckkkkkkkkksssss I just got a pair and thought it was going to be the easiest set-up because of the instruction given by Astro. However, the headset struggles to connect to the charging dock. The dock doesnt connect to the pc. Yes, I have also looked up many different solutions, but nothing still works. The software for the headset doesnt even detect the charging dock so updating and setting up the headset isnt even possible. My headset was able to connect one time, and the software asked me to update the headset. However, the software ran for 3 hour until it told me that there is an error with the download. Thus, I have not only wasted my time, but also my money. I recommend just buying a wirehead set or DO NOT BUY the wireless A-50. SUCCKKKKKKKSSSSSSSs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Xbox Series X headset you need, after the faff I was provided this headset to use with my Series X for review at 8-it Island. The headset took a bit of faff to get going, because the software from the Astro website to update it doesn't work. If you install it from the Windows store on your PC it will work then once it was going it has been a dream. The headset is super light and comfortable, yet feels surprisingly sturdy. The sound quality is awesome and popping it into the dock to charge is really helpful. It's an expensive headset but well worth it if you have the spare coin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect but could be tighter fitting. Before these I had a set of Steelseries Siberia 600's which were the old premium Steelseries range. Audio quality is better and comfort is better but they could be a tighter fit, the Astro A50's will slip off your head. Battery is built in which I dislike. Battery life is good but the charger station is a little tedious. Whereas the Siberia series had two removeable batteries that you could charge simultaneously. So if your Astro's go flat - your toast until it charges. Overall is what you'd expect from a premium headset but isn't perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Wireless Sound [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Astro A50 has to be the best headset I have used in terms of comfort, sound and accessibility. I actually have two of these headsets for each of my studios and they work perfectly with my mixing desk due to the base station they come with. Haven't used a better headset to this date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astro A50 - hard to beat After a lot of research settled on the A50. Does not disappoint, sound is clean, clear and deep. More than a gaming headset, music sounds amazing, but mic is excellent. Easy charging base means set is always charged with excellent wireless range. Best set I’ve had.
