Best Premium Wireless Gaming Headset: Astro A50
In 2016 Astro launched a new version of the wired A40s, the Tournament Ready variants, bring the award-winning headset back in a big way. In 2017 they did something similar with the upgraded A50s, the latest version of our favorite headset of all time. The powerful (and expensive) wireless headset is something I've used for years in gaming, streaming, and podcasting and the latest model is the best yet coming with a Base Station, interchangeable ear cushions, and up to 15 hours of battery life. It's even certified for Discord and comes in different variants for PS4 or Xbox One users (they all with PC and Mac too).
The ASTRO A50 Wireless Headset for PS4, PC, and Mac delivers top-of-the-line acoustics, ergonomics, and durability that professional gamers demand. Experience legendary sound and performance without the inconvenience and restrictions that come with wires. The all-new ASTRO Base Station features a 5GHz wireless transmitter that provides clear, low-latency voice communication, while making headset pairing and charging simple. Battle through long, intense gaming sessions in comfort with up to 15 hours of battery life. Hear enemies and objects from all angles with Dolby® Headphone 7.1 surround sound and optimize chat levels and game sounds with the built-in MixAmp™ technology. The included ASTRO Command Center software allows Pros and Livestreamers to tune every input and output parameter of the A50 precisely configure it for their specific setup. For even more flexibility, the optional A50 Mod Kit allows users to add synthetic leather headband and ear cushions for improved noise cancellation and comfort. Additional Base Stations are sold seperately to allow users to use the PS4 headset on the Xbox One. For VR headset users, the A50 will fit perfectly over the HTC Vive, Oculus, or PS VR and deliver an immersive audio experience.
Make no mistake. This is the best gaming headset on the market.
The Astro A50 retails for $299.99.
