You guys peer pressured me into ordering one. Hope these are good. Anyone know if they're that much better than the PS4 Gold Headsets?

It's kind of interesting for me to watch the amount being sold on eBay, just during the 1:58 time stamp in that 60 seconds, 65 headsets were sold.

You cant even compare Astro A40, Astro A40TRs, and the Astro A50 to anything made by Sony. Worlds better.

Wonder if they'll actually ship or just refund for a price mistake.

~350 headsets were sold in right about 50 minutes from the OP posting, it's insane.

Looks like you can just buy the Xbox Base for these if you want to use them on there, on sale for $75 on the astro website. https://www.astrogam...SE_color=Green#

Mine is also ready for pickup.

 

Going to show up right at opening and expecting a cancellation/denial, otherwise killer deal if it goes through.

I missed out, if one of you ends up with two or three, I’d be happy to pay shipping to California!

I second that. If anyone copped an extra pair I’d be willing to pay shipping to Cali as well.

If your order says ready for pick up they can still deny you at the counter? I never had that happen to me when an order said ready for pick up.Hmmm.

Nobody here is kind enough to sell me one at cost plus shipping? Most will probably be on eBay by tomorrow morning when the store opens.

I jumped on a pair of these early on, but personally decided to cancel my own order. Apparently, the latest gen of these have a multitude of issues, especially concerning the battery, mic, and connectivity. The recent Amazon customer reviews on these are all over the place and 29% are 1% reviews.  I quickly read quite a few of them....which lead to the nuking of my own order. 

 

Not shitting on this thread in any way, as it is an incredible savings....just wanted to share some information regarding some tech concerns.

 

I wish the best of luck to those who do get the deal, and more importantly, get long-lasting value out of them.

Missed out on this one. This was a good snag. Astros are the best headsets imo

Why I purchased the 2 year replacement plan for 14.99. Bestbuy let's you swap out for a new pair. No hassle.

I read similar things, and honestly I had a lot of issues with my A50s (pre dock model). Their customer service was decent, and so was the headset when it was working. This replacement pair is going out though...

 

Wish I could have bought your order from you before you canceled it :[

Hm how good are these compared to the Sony pulse elite headset? Pretty sure they’re better than Sony gold.

Nothing comes close to the Astro a40/50
Anyone into hi fidelity headphones, there’s nothing else
