Astro Launches A50 Wireless Headset, Your Ears Will Wub You
Astro Gaming have launched their latest and greatest headset, the Astro Gaming A50 wireless headset, the sequel to the Astro A40 wired headsets. We're a big fan of a quality headset here at Co-Optimus, communication is key in cooperative games, so a good headset is an important tool. We went ears on with the Astro A50's at E3 and were super impressed with the quality.
A50 - Built for long hours of play, the A50 matches superior fit and comfort with premium audio drivers and a uni-directional mic with flip-up mute.
5.8GHz WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY - Operating at higher frequencies than most wireless devices, the A50 provides uncompressed clarity and range with less interference.
ASTRO AUDIO - Engineered specifically for gaming, Astro Audio delivers professionally tuned sound for audiophile-grade performance with three custom EQ modes.
BUILT-IN MIXAMP™ 5.8 - The A50 features integrated wireless MixAmp™ 5.8 technology with easy-to-access controls for Master Volume and Game-to-Voice balancing.
DOLBY® 7.1 SURROUND SOUND - Hear the details you’re missing with pinpoint spatial accuracy and crystal clear definition.
EMBEDDED BATTERY & DISPLAY STAND - Lithium-ion battery system for ~10 hours of uninterrupted gaming. Show off and charge your A50’s via USB with the included display stand.
The headsets are now available and shipping from Astro for $299.99. They are compatible with a variety of devices including PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and other media devices that support optical input.
