No matter how much I write, or how much I say I love these headsets there will be people who will always leave there bias opinion. But for those of you who actually want to listen and are skeptical/undecided like me all I can say is this headset is in all aspects perfect. Quality is astonishing. Shipping was so incredibly fast. Packaging is so detailed and so well presented that I was just there staring at it for like 5 minutes. Sound is beyond my description, no match. I’ve owned and used many headsets, turtle beaches, hyperx, Logitech, a10s, a40s you name it. But this right here is something different this is just plain and simple amaizing. Battery life is extremely long. For those people saying battery life is short they probably to lazy to even use the actual base when they’re done playing. Also if you undecided about a40s and a50s let me make it simple. Do you play sitting and don’t mind cables than go a40s. If your like me and play a bit more seperated from your tv and hate cables get the a50s. Both amazing but my personal preference a50s in both sound and everything else. Lastly, stop listening to other people complaints about Astro or there headsets, me and almost all my friends have owned astros for years and not once have we had issues. It’s as simple as take care of your headset, CHARGE IT, and stop leaving it everywhere and greasing it up with everything you eat. trust me they will never give you an issue.

Best Headset I've had

I've had several headsets in the last couple of years but this one is by far the my favorite, long battery, comfortable earpieces, and great quality sound. If you can afford it this is the one to get

Whole New World

Had my headset for less than a week, and let me just say, this is whole new world of gaming for me.The build quality on the A50 (Gen 3) is superb, very sturdy and solid all around. The one-size fits all works spot on for me, but may not for others with smaller heads (unless there's a way to adjust the height, that I've not yet worked out). The over the ear couplings and the padded headband piece (which can be swapped out with a leather headand and noise-cancelling leather ear cushions - sold separately), these are a blessing as I game with glasses, and even after a lengthy gaming session, my glasses havent been pushed hard onto my noise/ears, like my previous headset used to do.The weight on the A50 headset is incredibly lightweight, they don't move around on your head, and they don't fall off when you "duck and weave" during those gaming moments.The charge dock is fantastic. It took a few hours to fully charge to 4-bars on the battery indicator, and even then after about 4hrs of gaming, the indicators were still on 4-bars.Simple on-off rocker switch on the headset for powering on/off, with almost instant sound response. A button to instantly activate Dobly Surround (but who turns these things off, right!), and a gem of a feature in the voice chat/game volumes - provided you have the PS4 set to Optical Audio as primary output, and then there's the master volume "roller" to increase the overall volumes.The mic boom is very strong yet flexible. It offers directional response, and tends not to pick up other noises in the room. Flick the mic right up (right up and behind a bit) and it mutes.One final plus, when gaming, if you remove the headset and place them down on a surface, they will "sleep" after about 10 seconds. Pick them up place them on your head, and they'll be back on ready to continue.I cannot fault these headsets. Whilst expensive (I paid $459AUD), they are a long-term investment, and they're built to last.Highly recommend for those willing to spend up.
