Astro launches A50 Wireless Gaming Headset

Astro introduces A50 Wireless Gaming Headset
The audio aficionados at Astro are an impatient bunch, launching into their own next generation of hardware ages before console manufacturers are ready to take the plunge. Today, Astro Gaming has released the A50 Wireless Gaming Headset – a Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound, 5.8GHz behemoth for use with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Mac "and more."

According to Astro, the A50 has a 12+ hour battery life and includes a separate wireless transmitter – which features KleerNet tech to keep audio lossless over its wireless connection.

Acoustic authority comes at a hefty price, however, as the A50 is tagged with a staggering $300 price point. Hey, no one said hearing the falling tears of your enemies online would be cheap! The hardware is currently available on Astro's website and select retail locations.
