Review: Is Astro's A50 Wireless the Perfect Gaming Headset?

How's it feel?

Despite the added bulk and weight (the A50 is about 12 percent heavier than the A40) from the integrated mixamp and built-in battery, the A50 sat comfortably on our heads for up to three hours at a time, and we still didn't feel fatigued from wearing it (just from getting cursed at by 12-year-olds in Halo).

The headphones and headband carry a significant amount of padding, and while we're worried about the sweat and oil build-up over time, we're also thankful for the added comfort all that soft foam provides.

The microphone flips easily up and down to mute/unmute your voice, and the volume and mixing controls are intuitively accessed on the right earcup.
