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.
Here's a wub wub filled launch trailer for the headsets. Because..ya know...everything needs more dub step.
