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 separately to allow users to use the Xbox One headset with the PS4. For VR gamers, the A50 will fit perfectly over the HTC Vive, Oculus, or PS VR and deliver an immersive audio experience.
5GHz Wireless Technology
Ditch the cables with confidence. ASTRO’s wireless technology provides robust, low-latency performance by operating at a higher frequency. This keeps you in perfect sync with your gameplay and eliminates interference from other wireless devices, allowing you to focus on winning. No chat cable required on any console.
Astro Base Station Transmitter
No one likes a complicated setup. The A50 headset automatically pairs with the ASTRO Base Station for frustration-free connectivity, while magnetic charging allows for effortless docking when the headset is not in use. The Base Station’s front display indicates battery life and charging status to ensure you never get stuck with a dead headset. The rear 3.5mm input/output supports additional audio sources, giving you the ability to take phone calls, overlay background music, or output your game audio and chat to external capturing devices.
Take control of your audio. The A50 integrates ASTRO’s MixAmp technology for advanced customization of all inputs and outputs. This all-digital solution allows gamers and streamers to fine-tune various audio settings, including Game:Voice Balancing, which adjusts the ratio of game audio to voice chat. Users can easily tweak the levels of each audio source to achieve the perfect mix.
Precision Microphone With Flip-Up Mute
ASTRO Gaming was conceived in the pits of eSports tournaments, so we know the importance of clean voice chat. The flexible, durable microphone offered on the A50 provides clear, low noise communication and is optimized for Xbox One and PC/Mac®. And with the ASTRO Command Center software, gamers can fully adjust microphone levels and other settings depending on their environment and preferences.
Comfort & Durability
ASTRO headsets were designed for marathon gaming sessions. The ear cushions feature cloth for maximum comfort, backed with synthetic leather for the best acoustic performance. Wear glasses? Not an issue. The A50 features lightweight, yet rugged construction with premium materials for a pressure-free fit that won’t overheat your head.
Astro Command Center Software
The innovative ASTRO Command Center software offers enhanced flexibility and control beyond default mix settings. The A50 has three new EQ presets (ASTRO, Pro, and Studio), which can also be accessed via the headset for fast and easy selection. Users can also independently adjust input and output levels, including Sidetone and Noise Gate. Profiles can then be updated, saved, and shared. The software also provides automatic notification of product firmware updates when they become available.
PC Compatibility and Support
The A50 offers multi-platform compatibility, making it simple to switch between console and PC/Mac® modes. PC gamers can access the ASTRO Command Center software via USB and adjust various audio settings and levels accordingly. PC gamers can also balance game sound and voice chat when using separate chat applications such as Discord™ or Skype®.
Dolby® Headphone 7.1 Surround Sound
Whether it’s stereo or multi-channel surround sound, the A50 delivers accurate audio no matter the source. Spatial placement and directivity are crucial in competitive play and the A50 was engineered with this in mind. The end result is a lifelike, cinematic gaming experience that gives you the ability to pinpoint various objects and sounds in a three-dimensional space.
Pro Quality Audio
ASTRO headsets are specifically tuned for gaming. We work closely with developers, pro gamers, and streamers to deliver dialogue, music, and in-game sounds as they were intended to be heard. ASTRO Audio provides a neutral, smooth, and extended frequency spectrum for detailed, true to life imaging. This means non-fatiguing highs, clear mids, and tight, distortion-free bass for balanced resolution.
Mod Kit Ready
The A50 headset already provides great comfort and sound out-of-the-box, but the optional A50 Mod Kit* (sold separately) gives users the ability to upgrade to synthetic leather noise-isolating ear cushions and a padded headband. The cushions provide increased noise isolation and limit sound leakage for quiet environments.
