Not the quality i thought it should be.

Having issues since day one with base station not charging properly and the adjusting of the game/chat mixer is really fiddly, for the price of Astros , definitely not worth full price.

Mic problems

The microphone on this headset sucks, sounds like you're talking through 6 pairs of socks

Asro A50 Gaming Head Set

The Astro A50's came with a dock/charging station which was staright forward to set up.

I have now used the Astro's for 6 months and I noted the following Pro's and Cons.

Pro's:
1. Sound Quality
2. Battery life

Con's:
1. Uncomfortable
2. Price
3. Check updates
4. Must set up on computer before use

Overal: The biggest issue I found with the Astro's was there is a section of foam in the topside of the headset which sits on your head. I found this section of the headset to move at times and the hard plastic around it cut into your head. This has been the same feedback from friends who have the Astro's. We all now wear hats when playing to provide extra protection.

You wouldn't expect this from such a high end headset and is an issue.

The sound quality and noise cancellation is great as you would expect for these. They are not the "perfect headset" and I do feel Astro can still develope a much better head set but that maybe a model or two away.

Would I recommend the Astro's? not for the price, next time I will look at purchasing an earbudd set up instead.
