This best-in-class gaming headset is 33% off for Prime Day

The Astro A50 Wireless gaming headset is one of the best money can buy, even at full price. At half price it’s a practical steal.

Currently as part of the merriment of Prime Day, you can get the PS4, Windows/Xbox One model for just $199.99, which is a third off the usual $300 asking price.

This wireless headset, with Dolby headphone surround sound and is Dolby Atmos ready, comes with its own basestation and boasts a flip-to-mute microphone for all your in-game chat needs.

Minus the amp component the headset is fully compatible with the Sony PS4, Windows PCs, Nintendo Switch also, making it a great addition for the multi-platform gamer.

We awarded the Astro A50 Wireless headset a superb 4 stars out of a possible 5, praising it for the comfort being extremely comfortable, boasting strong audio quality, the ease of use and sturdy construction
One of our only peeves was the price point, and that concern has now been completely blown out of the water by today’s Prime Day sale.

Our reviewer says: “The A50 is a very similar headset to the Astro A40TR. Both offer solid construction, have a well-crafted sound signature and are comfortable to wear over long periods.

However, while the wireless execution of the A50 is near-flawless, it adds significantly to the price tag. For £280, you could buy yourself a remarkable pair of headphones and a dedicated microphone, which is something I strongly recommend you consider.

“If you’re dead set on buying a wireless headset at this price point, however, the A50 is hard to fault. Set up is easy, sound quality is great, and the wireless system is brilliant. All in all, it’s a great bit of gaming kit for those who can justify the cost.”

High praise indeed. Jump on board while you can.
