Reviews around bass (4.61 of 5)

  • The bass is perfect, trebel is great, and it is very comfortable
  • I had some inexpensive turtle beach head phones 6 years ago that had crazy bass
  • I absolutely love the bass and immersion you get from these, you will not be disappointed
  • The Astro A50, however, have amazing sound, good depth and bass, feel great to the touch, have a velvety cup that feels great on the ears, are comfortable to wear for even hours, and the charging base that charges without wires adds a great touch to make it easy to charge and also look great as a showpiece.
  • The sound is great - good deep bass, and the depth of the surround is awesome

Reviews around gaming (4.32 of 5)

  • but I would stick to turtle beaches if u don’t absolutely love gaming
  • By far the most comfortable gaming headset I've ever owned.
  • For an all around comfortable long gaming session with none of the mic problems i've seen written here, these are great
  • I mean if look at the headset price you will think gaming plus, if that is the case than you will be mostly disappointed mainly because the sound is just suited for gaming now that's not to say that movies and music don't sound good or immesive is just not the sound you think you would get for a 300 dollar set
  • These are great gaming headphones but they take a bit of work for the end user

Reviews around way (3.86 of 5)

  • I love the way these dock and charge in the base station as well as still being able to charge via USB while wearing them
  • I was constantly setting it in the cradle the wrong way causing it not to charge.
  • Save your money these have way too many issues to waste $300
  • But the issue with this headset is, they have way too many problems
  • I can tell what direction footsteps are coming from, but no easy way to turn up the bass

Reviews around comfort (3.50 of 5)

  • If they would have just abandoned the money they threw away on terrible R&D for the charge base, they could have invested in a microphone that didn't sound awful
  • n’t burn battery life when I forget to turn them off when I put them down
  • as it stands, you get outstanding sound quality AND comfort, but you won't get some of the additional bells and whistles that would have put this in a league of its own.
  • Besides having great sound quality and great comfort, this headset lasts
  • Amazing sound and comfort if your willing to deal with the constant connection issues

Reviews around headphone (3.47 of 5)

  • These are the 2nd most comfortable headphones I have ever used
  • For the money these headphones are awful because of these issues
  • These are good headphones for sure, but not great and not worth the price
  • it's not a bad headphone, it's just really not worth the price tag... after comparing it to 6 other of my gaming headphones (including the G933

Reviews around product (2.96 of 5)

  • The thing that made me hate this product was not the sound they sounded great
  • Would be a great product if they had put a plug on both ends so you didn't get bilked for $75

Reviews around cause (2.28 of 5)

  • 500X(as well as
  • great!-It fits really well and distributes the weight of the headset effectively without causing discomfort to the gamer.-Completely wireless.-Battery indicator lights on the
  • Worked easily with my computers and my Xbox one s!!
  • I almost feel bad for their forum mods trying to help all the people having problems but it is a lost cause because there isn't a fix besides just sending the ---- thing back and getting a refund
  • It conflicts with the frequency of the headset and the base causing constant audio and voice drops, up to one a minute and the duration of the drop out can be up to 10 seconds

Reviews around charge (2.22 of 5)

  • only thing is these new Gen 3 designs could have been a lot better Design especially the magnetic charging
  • I honestly do not take care of these as well as I should, but they have not shown any sign of damage yet
  • And why do they fully lose their charge in less than a day if they are POWERED OFF?!?!?!
  • The fact that they are wireless and come with a cool charging dock, they look cool and all the reviews I'd read made them sound perfect for the job
  • you don't use/charge the headset for about 3 days, it can lose it's charge

Reviews around signal (2.00 of 5)

  • I have no issues in the gaming room, but if I walk out of it, it loses signal
  • The signal only works on a very narrow channel and band that can't be modified, causing literally any wireless router or access point released in the last 15 years to interfere with it.
  • Another thing is i will wear headset to go to kitchen for drink while gaming and headset will lose signal and become scrambled like literally 15
  • I honestly do not take care of these as well as I should, but they have not shown any sign of damage yet
  • The range is good but because of the 5ghz signal you can't go past to many walls my front door is 15' away from base unit and as soon as I shut the door I lose signal

Reviews around voice (1.69 of 5)

  • Then, the other half the time, the connection to the base gives off a static sounding voice that your friends complain about
  • This is frustrating when I am playing cooperative games requiring accurate voice communication
  • People always say that I'm cutting out, that my voice is unclear, or that I get this broken robotic sound to my voice.
  • But then you join an xbox live party and your friends tell you sound like you're talking into a can and every few minutes my voice apparently sounds like a robot and no one can understand me for a few seconds
  • -The battery life is 14 hours, and you actually see a real time digital display of your remaining charge on the charging stand itself, so you always know how much time you have left-The microphone is really sensitive, there's never a problem picking up my voice and the snap up to mute on the mic always works

Reviews around problem (1.61 of 5)

  • Great sound and comfortability but constant problems with the headset "freezing" and becoming inoperable
  • Those problems were so infuriating that I took to buying my first gaming headset not produced by Turtle Beach
  • I would have bought a more reliable cheaper headset because the problems that come with a slight increase in performance is defiantly not worth it
  • So a gaming headset with a built in mic should solve the problem, right
  • I love the headset, but these problems are irrefutably inexcusable

Reviews around customer service (1.49 of 5)

  • They are now owned by Logitech and the customer service is crap, this isn't the ASTRO gaming I once knew
  • Secondly, customer service is hard to get; they will try their hardest not to service your product providing you a number of things for you to try before they will even think about filing for warranty use
  • Worked easily with my computers and my Xbox one s!!
  • My customer service with the company may have been horrendous but their product, when it works, is phenomenal

Reviews around connection issue (1.39 of 5)

  • Worked easily with my computers and my Xbox one s!!
  • The sound quality is good, the mic quality it good, unfortunately connection issues completely overshadow those positives, leaving me thoroughly dissatisfied with the product
  • While the headset sounds and feels great, this has horrible connection issues
  • Worked easily with my computers and my Xbox one s!!
  • NOW why I gave it 4 stars is because is sometimes has connection issues with the dock station

Reviews around reset (1.33 of 5)

  • Worked easily with my computers and my Xbox one s!!
  • It has a hard reset function (thank god) which the geniuses at Astro completely forgot to include with the gen 2 headset; went through two pairs of the gen 2 after they would freeze and no longer respond to any buttons on the headset and had to send them back
  • To get it to barge I have to hit the hard reset bottoms and place it back on the base to charge.
  • If your Xbox is having trouble connecting or finding the headset hold the Dolby button and the GAME button, both located on the right earphone, at the same time until the headset does a hard reset
  • If they would have just abandoned the money they threw away on terrible R&D for the charge base, they could have invested in a microphone that didn't sound awful

Reviews around doe (1.00 of 5)

  • There are a few minor issues that might bother some is the mic quality should be improved for the price, game chat does not work in destiny for Xbox, and lastly the headset needs a little wiggle to put in, but it is still easy to place and use
  • If they would have just abandoned the money they threw away on terrible R&D for the charge base, they could have invested in a microphone that didn't sound awful
  • a lot of people say the mic quality sucks, and it does for in game chat, while in a party chat I say it sounds good

Reviews around volume (1.00 of 5)

  • Volume can go louder than needed(read reviews on other brands that the volume isn’t loud enough), sound quality is awesome
  • , the headset seems to drop connection once or twice upon use throughout the day and comes back quickly after; sometimes upon starting my PC the headset won't work unless I unplug the USB cord and plug it back in giving this hard power up sound you will hear from the headset so careful not to have loud volume when doing so
  • It is almost surreal how without loud volume the chat feature effortlessly crosses through other noises to your ears with precision
  • Volume can go louder than needed(read reviews on other brands that the volume isn’t loud enough), sound quality is awesome
  • I originally bought turtle beaches 800x, and while the Bluetooth was cool, they weighed three pounds and have l gave me such an intense pressure headache
