The Headset I didn't know I needed
Pros: - Dolby Atmos Feature - It was like listening to sound for the first time, full of ranges and frequencies I hadn't experienced before. I felt like crying. - Multiple EQ settings to allow swapping between different functions like gaming or video calling with people. - Wireless range is pretty good, can basically walk anywhere in a room and still get perfect sound. - Comfortable: Padding on the headphones is comfortable for long periods, fabric mesh that breathes versus leather/faux leather which I find gets sweaty. - Battery Charge lasts a long time, I haven't done a timed test but never had any issues using for multiple hours at a time. - Astro Command Center - Software is pretty easy to use and calibrate as well as syncing settings to the headset.
Cons: - Sound leakage: Full volume blasting on the headphones will be very audible to the people around you.
Overall Review: I would absolutely recommend this to other people, trying these for the first time was mind blowing from just the quality difference between the A50 and other headphones. I've bought many brands of headphones but I think the Dolby Atmos really makes a difference. Compared to AKG, Sony, and Beats by Dre for just listening to music, I think it surpasses them all from just the default EQ settings by Astro. I also like it for gaming, especially for games like Apex Legends or Counter Strike where directional sound of footsteps are clutch in determining where enemies are located. Using with Discord was pretty easy, no issues on voice pickup while chatting with my team. This was also my first wireless set of headphones, and not having wires getting tangled or caught on my chair is a real game changer. Overall, very solid pair of headphones.
