Anyone thinking of buying astro a50's please wait. There appears to be a lot of bad hardware issues with a high amount of them. They do not work with scuf controllers and customer support is really bad.

Sending mine back, after 4 support requests and 5 emails and countless phone calls and posts on the astro gaming forum I got the agree for a refund.

Poor all round from a large company, just have a quick look on the astro forum and see all the people having exactly same issue. Phone Post

I have the new trittons warheads. They are completely wireless (no lead from headset to controller). Uses a battery and has a spare on charge in the base unit so it can be swapped. And they are a fantastic head set. Buttons to swap between game, music and film sound modes. Surround sound. Also independent controls for game and voice volume. They are a brilliant headset, very happy with them and I could not tell any sound difference between the a50 and warhead. I would suggest the warhead over the a50's.

Also on a side note, the a50's have no replaceable battery so when the battery in the headset fails (it's only made to last for a certain amount of hours) you have to send the whole headset back to astro for them to change the battery. Phone Post
