5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Headset

Pros: - The most comfortable surround sound headset I have ever worn. It's somewhat heavier but you don't notice.
- Wireless works flawlessly, when using with my PC or PS4 there is no cut-out or buzz.
- Minimal setup/Easy to use and take advantage of features like 3 different present sound settings, VOIP/Game volume bias adjustment.
- Cloth cushions on headband and ears which reduces heat during long use. Also doesn't wear out like the vinyl on my old G35 headset.
- Aesthetically pleasing.
- Most importantly the sound quality is unbelievable. The surround effect is precise and clean. The lows are low and the highs are high!

Cons: - Low-end frequencies cut out. It is unlikely most will notice this, I have A LOT of experience in the audio quality market. Basically the effect it gives is if you're playing Battlefield on setting 3 (the higher bass setting) you can hear the low-end frequencies dip out. Best way to remedy this is to switch to setting 2, which I'd say is the best setting anyways. That being said it's not much of a con because the low-end bass is still phenomenal for a headset and most definitely impressive for wireless.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this headset after my Logitech G35 got absolutely DESTROYED by my dog. (R.I.P.) A friend from work had told me about Astro and said he had the A40s which are clearly more than my G35s but I LOVE good audio quality and he told me they could not be beaten. So, after watching a few video reviews I decided to pick up the A50s because I wanted the wireless feature. I had previously tried Turtle Beach and Triton headsets. The Triton's sounded OKAY, but too many issues for me. The Triton's felt cheap, had an overly complex setup process and BUZZ.. Buzz I also found in the Turtle Beach headset.

I haven't had ANY complaints about my A50s yet. My audio mic comes through clearer than my G35s, the headset itself is leaps and bounds more comfortable. If you're reading this and you're coming from a high-quality wired headset TRUST ME.. Wireless is sooooooooo nice. I love not having the issue of working around my wire. This is a no-compromise setup if you were to ask me.
