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.

Best Wireless Headset. Period.

Had this headset for about 6 months or so now and they are hands down the best headset I have used for gaming. I’m a big fan of audio equipment and I used to my music headphones via an aux cable (Sony MDR 1000X); they are a decent set of headphones (the best I’ve used when listening to music) but when it comes to Gaming? The Astros beat them hands down!Very easy to set up, and I would highly recommend purchasing the Dolby sound pack for Xbox One to get the most out of them. If I had to state my best additional accessory purchase for gaming it would be this headset. Next purchase? The PS4 Base Station (on its own) so I can use them with the PS4 as well.

this headset is great!

it can be problematic at first, but once you have it updated to the latest version (you will need to do a manual install as the version it updates to is bugged and prevents it from updating itself, just google for it and eventually you should find an astro forum and they posted a manual installer there) it is as smooth as smooth can be and works like a charm!!
