Day one for us was packed from the gaming products to one of the biggest games like Call of Duty Black Ops 2. We saw a lot. I wanted to give you guys what still had me saying wow after sleeping and waking up after the first day. This product just blew me away, it comes from Astro Gaming. It’s been 3 1/2 years since I’ve had my A40′s and they have never ever caused me a problem. Just recently I felt like getting a new pair just because I wanted something ‘new’. To my surprise, Astro timely comes out with this product!
Astro A50 First Look Video
Astro, in my eyes, have thought about everything and waited til they had the correct 5.8GHz wireless technology. They are first headset company to be using Kleer technology. This is a new ‘Bluetooth’ technology but better. It’s predicted that this will fully replace Bluetooth in time, right now they have started with other products like Astro and HP ENVY 14 Spectre Ultrabook PC. Because of this they are able to have their famous MixAMP within the headset.
The controls are the best I seen that are actually on the headset. The position of everything is for a reason. Lets say volume, its on the right ear in the back of the ear cup. Astro did this because of the natural way people take off their headset. So if you reach to that cup, your thumb naturally lands on the volume control. The mix between game sound and audio has replaced the right speaker tag as a clickable button for your selection of mixture between the two.
Astro Gaming has really put a lot of thought into this product. The features from the video above give you a quick over view of the product.
I could go on for another thousand words why this product is amazing. But know this, with Astro Gaming, your not only buying a high quality item that will blow you away, you’re not only buy a product that will have software support later on (to adjust the 3 audio presets to your pleasing) but you’re giving your trust to Astro Gaming that if anything is wrong they will be there for you. And they will, there customer support is the best in the industry. Stay tuned for our review on this product in the coming weeks! Astro wins our Best at E3 for Headphones and Gaming Accessory, also might be one of our Best in Show.
