It looks as if ASTRO Gaming has done it again and introduced another gem into their stunning line-up of elite gaming headsets. ASTRO Gaming has let their new ASTRO A50 Wireless Gaming Headset loose on the general public, and the masses are already clawing at the websites digital doors to get their hands on one.

The wireless ASTRO A50s are specifically crafted to provide crystal clear audio quality for the wearer with Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround Sound. That’s better than most home theater systems! While the ASTRO A50s, much like previous ASTRO Gaming headsets, are designed for those playing video games that’s not their only function. Proud owners of this headset will be over the moon listening to their favorite songs on their iPod or even streaming an action movie through their PC. If your device has a headphone jack the ASTRO A50s can enhance your entertainment experience ten fold if they are anything like the A30 and A40 models before them.

Founder of ASTRO Gaming, Brett Lovelady, had this to say in today’s press release: “To improve the overall gaming experience and fully hear things as the game developers designed, you need a killer headset.  ASTRO Gaming has been elevating expectations of what gamers expect from their audio since we introduced our A40 Pro Headset and MixAmp™ in 2008.  Now after 4 years in the gaming arena, we’ve proven our products are unmatched in material quality, audio fidelity and innovation, and are used by pro and serious amateur gamers the world over.  The wireless ASTRO A50 was our next natural step to provide a more streamlined and integrated audio experience while maintaining our industry leading levels of comfort and quality – features which will appeal to an entirely new audience of home entertainment and gaming enthusiasts.”

 

 

The ASTRO A50 Wireless Gaming Headset brings a lot of new things to the table, giving owners of older models more than enough reason to upgrade. The headset has KleerNet 5.8GHz wireless technology that assists in increasing the operating range of the unit as well as provide even more audio clarity than ASTRO users are accustomed to. Dolby 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound are both options as well for those who really want to experiment with both settings to get the spatial accuracy that’s right for them. One improvement is the uni-directional microphone with flip-up mute. Yep, that’s right. Gone are the days of fumbling for the mute switch, or moving the mic away from your face only to be forced to whisper as loud as you can to be heard by those in the room with you. Simply move the microphone up, and you’re muted! Toss in a long lasting lithium-ion battery that can be charged by USB and the embedded ASTRO MixAMP 5.8 to balance the in game audio with your team mates voices, and you got yourself enough reasons to bust out the credit card! And did we mention you can use it on any platform? PC, PS3, or Xbox 360. Choose your poison, put on your ASTRO A50s, and lose yourself to the power of awesome.

And you will need a credit card to pick this one up. The ASTRO A50 Wireless Gaming Headset is available now for $299.99 from the manufacturer’s website: www.astrogaming.com.
