And when you're done it fits perfectly on its own headset stand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Headset with Some Unfortunate Flaws I started with A40s + MixAmp Pro and was extremely let down when I decided to switch to the A50s. While the sound quality and the mic (make sure to update the firmware on the headset and transmitter) were impeccable, the constant "freezing" of the headset was too big of a problem to ignore. Someone else mentioned it earlier, but when this occurs you can't turn the headset off, mic doesn't work, can't change any settings... basically useless until the battery drains. That's Astros' tech support's answer to the problem at least. The biggest concern is the number of people experiencing this problem. A quick look at the Astro forums reveals that this is a massive issue. So far this happened on two occasions during the first two days I owned them. At this point I'm not sure whether to keep trying different pairs of A50s or to switch to another brand. That said these headsets do have some amazing features, but what's the use if I can't use them half the time while I wait for the battery to die?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great headset. alright, some people get lemons, any one who works with technology knows that happens with any product, ive had no problems out of them but apparently astros support is great, firmware is super simple to update, and build quality is great, flexible where they need to be, but nice and firm, no squeaks or gaps, fantastic build, super, super comfortable. i can wear them from a full charge until they die in a single sitting(about 8 hrs). no they dont have bluetooth or an aux in on the ear phones, they do on the transmitter,and for xbox one chat you do have to plug them into the controller, but you knew this going into the purchase. thats not what these are for, their for someone who wants the best gaming headphones out there. sound quality is serious unbeatable, you hear everything and know exactly where that sound is coming from, saved my life many times. the only negatives about these are lemons and features that these headphones dont have that you know they dont. buy them anyway, theyre worth every penny. paid 150 for turtle beach xo seven pro, returned them, got these, so glad i did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gaming Headset The sound quality can not be beat. You hear every nuance in the game that the designers have created to make the experience second to none. The surround quality is superb. These are lightweight and super comfortable especially over extended periods. The mic works great-have had no issues like some other reviews mention. The setup is very easy-just remember to update the software. Wouldn't trade these in for anything else. They are expensive but if you are a serious gamer it's well worth spending a little more to get a lot more that will last a long time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you payed for... easily the nicest, best sounding, well made headphones i have ever owned.. the price is not for everyone but if you game alot and like to hook yourself up from time to time these are worth their weight in gold... My only beef (besides the price) is there "kinda wireless) as in with the xbox one version you still need to plug the headset into the controller for voice chat..having said that i never had any issues with my mic like others have had.... make sure you update your controller on your xbox and update the firmware on the mix amp and you should be good to go

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING HEADSET, NOT FOR EVERYONE With the steep price of $300usd i wouldn't consider this to be a headset for everyone. It lacks nothing quality wise, however i wish they would give some indication of battery percentage instead of solid light when charged and blinking light when its almost dead.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth It. Not very good. I needed a good headset for the xbox one. I thought this was good but the mic is extremely poor. Didn't work in the xbox live party. Also tried skype, nothing. Nobody could hear me. I'm stuck with my Old Turtle Beach pair... wireless but good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Headset great sound and comfortable too. I had tried several different headsets and always ended up returning them Turtle beach, afterglow etc. The only downfall with the Astro A50 headset is the occasional static that comes through. Great sound and good quality craftsmanship.
