Comfortable headset that provides excellent sound quality and an intuitive equalizer to balance "chat" and "game" audio on the fly. The microphone also does a great job filtering out background noises when playing games in a busy room which means I can continue chatting with friends without them hearing everything thats going on around me. The battery lasts at least 14 hours when fully charged and seems to recharge quickly once returned to the charge dock. Its easy to set up out of the box and easy to use once linked to the system. I have used a handful of cheaper wireless headsets over the last 2 years but would recommend to anyone that can afford the higher asking price, to just go for the A50's. The other wireless products I've used dont evek come close.

When I first bought them I had to reset the headset because of would not connect. That seemed to fix the problem for a while and then the issue seemed to come back and now I can't get them to connect properly at all. Been on touch with Astro and the solutions they have provided so far have not worked.

Bought these to replace my A-40’s. Won’t stay connected. After turning the Xbox off for a day or so you have to unplug the base to get them to reconnect to hear game and chat

When I turn on my Xbox one it sometimes doesn't connect when turned on or I have sound and no microphone. That is my only complaint.

You’ll have to buy a separate base station to use it on both systems only one dock works with xb/pc and the other works with ps4/pc you can’t use the same dock on different systems but you can use one headset with different docks
