Multi-System Compatibility

ASTRO MixAmp™ Pro (included in all Audio Systems) and the A50 Built in MixAmp™ + Transmitter (included in all A50 Wireless Systems) ensure compatibility with any major platform you choose to game on. Whether you're gaming on a PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, or a mobile platform, ASTRO has you covered.


Featuring premium materials and construction, ASTROs are highly adjustable and surprisingly lightweight. Clamp them on your dome for days or turn them flat around your neck.


The new Mobile Cable plugs directly into the headset via a 3.5mm 4-pole jack and offers an in-line microphone, an in-line mute switch, a volume control wheel, and a call/pickup/tracking button.


We work with pro gamers and top audio designers to deliver the highest level of clarity at every frequency. Your games, music, and movies will sound amazing.


All ASTRO Gaming console headsets (A30+MixAmp™ Pro, A40+MixAmp™ Pro, A50) deliver Dolby® Digital 7.1 game audio, but require the use of the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to enable online voice chat. To ensure you receive the best Xbox One audio experience, please make sure you have the latest firmware updates installed for both the Xbox One Console and Controller, as well as your ASTRO Gaming hardware.


ASTRO headsets are fully compatible with PS4 once the Firmware 1.50 update has been applied to the console. Our headsets will deliver Dolby® Digital 5.1 and 7.1 game audio and full voice chat functionality over the PlayStation Network.
