So since this thread keeps popping up...
Im looking to buy a new wireless headset. Zero wires connecting to either xbox or ps4 controller.
I have the Astro A50 and the Plantronics Rig 800 for xbox in mind, both on sale at Gamestop where i have like $30 credit still. I hear people bash Astros, and praise them.. i tried them on at Bestbuy and have to say they fit great but thats as far as i was able to “test” them cause their soundboard setup was broke.
Am i looking in the right direction? Or is there an alternative to those?
Remember no wires connecting to either controller, and im not too worried about loss of surround on either cause i dont run headphones all the time. When i do its mainly when in a party, and game sound is turned down to hear the the ball busting instead..
I was in the same boat like you. Ironically, the a50 is the ONLY set that doesn't hurt my ears for extended gaming session. Second reason (besides comfort) was the ease of switching from my PS4, Xbox One X and PC. Third reason, wireless baby!!
That being said, it might not be for some ppl but for what I look for (extreme comfort, convenience, and wireless capability), a50 serves my purpose
