I owned the 117 Halo Edition beforehand and I can say these are a subtle but welcome improvement

Pros
: Lighter then the Gen 2 counterpart
: Foam ear cups are super comfortable ( I wear glasses & no issue )
: Sound quality is crystal clear and chat mixes well
: 100% wireless no wires needed at all
: Firmware updates and equaliser customisation through the Astro Command Centre
: Simple and easy to use controls

Cons
: Price is high whichever way you look I paid £250

Other than that a cracking upgrade if you have the cash to splash you'll enjoy every bullet fired.

Sound quality on this headset is best I've heard. That may not mean much, but I can tell you these are comfortable and I can go 6-8 hour sessions without having head or ear pain. This is because they sit so comfortably. Mic sound from what I read on the net was sub par, however after I updated the firmware of the base station and headset (highly recommended), the mic quality and customization setting are up there with the best of them. There is a reason why pro-gamers use ASTRO. Battery life is as described and for a truly wireless experience I have no regrets. I have also been able to sit directly in front of an in-wall air conditioner (I link in Australia) whilst having the fan blow full speed, only for the software to remove the air con sound and isolate my chat voice. The party chat could not hear the air con, where as with my previous headset I had to unmute the mic each time I was chatting. When using my previous headset I was asked if i was playing from an industrial warehouse, now I can play through the summer without forgetting I am on mute half the time.

This is my second try on a pair of Astro A50's for Xbox one. I recently purchased the A50 Gen 2's which were dead on arrival and the led charge light would never indicate a full charge.

These Gen 3 headsets unfortunately drop audio on a regular basis! They cut out 3 times last night in the space of an hour. Incredibly frustrating paying £250 for something which should be premium.

As many on the internet have documented all trouble shooting steps to resolve did not work including changing WiFi channels, resetting, checking cables etc etc...

Wouldn't recommend, very bad quality control.

I've had astro A40, A40 TR's and now A50's and my god they sound fantastic! The range isn't magnificent but the build quality is great and the sounds are crystal clear.. And the bass!! Well it's better than the TR's for sure! I would highly recommend for gamer's and streamers!

By far the best headset in the market at the moment. Same built quality as A50s Gen 2 but with all the microphone issues fixed. The battery is long lasting.
