E3 Hardware Preview: Astro A50 Wireless Headset System

Hardware Lust: Astro has always been in our peripheral vision, but we finally experienced the company’s gaming headsets first-hand when reviewing Ubisoft’s music game slash guitar tutor Rocksmith. Our review bundle shipped with the Astro A30 headset and Mixamp, and it’s been our go-to headset for gaming since — especially with the hardware being platform agnostic. I can use Astro headsets for any device from my Xbox 360 to my Android tablet.

Of course, there were still wires to contend with (we hate wires), and a few design issues that kept the A30s from being perfect. After spending some time with the Astro A50s (which release July 2012), it’s safe to say that Astro has directly addressed those issues, while combining the Mixamp and the 7.1 Surround headphones into an insanely comfortable, wireless, audiophile-grade piece of ear candy.
