If have been introduced with the popular Astro A50 gaming headset last 2012, then you know that the new gaming headset is the company’s 2016 version, with some upgrades and customisations based on the Astro A40 and the 2012 Astro A50. Get to know the Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset 2016.

Indeed, the first versions of the gaming headphones were really comfortable in use but when one feature, which is the stand, is one that fails the entire design architecture of the first versions, then we said someone needs an upgrade with that. Fortunately, Astro listened to many feedbacks and they have replaced the stand with a base station that handles the charging, pairing, and transmitting.

The Astro A50 wireless gaming headset supports Dolby 7.1 and three EQ presets that can be customized via the Astro software. And when it comes to its design functionality, this new version of the wireless headphone is still very light and when used is very comfortable on the head. The Astro A50 uses a 5GHz spectrum and is designed to support up to 30 feet of range.


Another major difference in the new gaming headphone is the removable ear cups and headband, which is similar to the feature of the Astro A40 TR. With this, the new Astro A50 can enable you to customize the entire wireless headset for color changes and comfort of use.


Aside from these, the Astro A50 wireless gaming headset also features the following:

  • Support for PC and Console: The Astro A50 is a wireless headset that is dedicated for many gamers out there. There are two models of the Astro A50 and each one supports the PS4 and Xbox One, in addition to both models supporting the PC as well.
  • Mic Technology: With the new Astro A50, the boom mic has now been improved with a noise-cancelling feature as well as an auto mute function when you will flip the mic up.
  • Battery life: The new Astro A50 rates with up to 15 hours of battery life and also has a standby mode for extra battery life. The gaming headset is integrated with an accelerometer that can identify if the headset is lying flat, which if it does, will hit the standby mode in order to save battery. The Astro A50 also has a micro-USB charging option for you to charge it anytime you want to or need to.

The new Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset 2016 is now available in the market and sells at a price of $299.
