Over the years I've reviewed, worn, listened, and tried dozens upon dozens of gaming headsets. They've all had one thing in common - they were designed for gaming and communication first and audio second. That's not to say any of these headsets sounded bad - the Astro A30s still are still my go to headsets I use almost daily. But the latest headsets I've been testing are different - they were designed with audio in mind first. In fact the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 stereo headsets were designed "by the community" for both their weight, feel, and audio tuning.

Astro Gaming have launched their latest and greatest headset, the Astro Gaming A50 wireless headset, the sequel to the Astro A40 wired headsets.

We went ears on with the Astro A50's at E3 and were super impressed with the quality.
The Astro A30s are my go to headset, but I've been eyeing up the A40s for quite some time. Now with the Astro A50s on the horizon, basically a wireless version of the A40s, it might be time to finally upgrade my ear cans.

CES is about gadgets. Most gadgets don’t apply to us, but when we get a solid lead on a new headset that brings players together through communication we can’t help but get a little excited.

The headset features a retractable microphone, easy to use settings on the right earcup, and a few different settings to really bring players into the game. We we're big fans of the wired 5XBs, so the 7XBs sound like a worthy upgrade.
