The astro a50 is a great headset but its held back by being made for Xbox. There are many other better options like the steelseries arctis 7 or the arctis nova pro wireless that has a lot of features and removable batteries you can recharge in its base station so you don’t have to stop gaming to charge your headset.
The SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless is a new standard in premium gaming headsets. Its sound quality is superb, with excellent bass and treble, excellent detail and a wide soundstage for a closed-back headset. Its earcups have a brushed aluminum finish that looks fantastic. It also has a retractable microphone that pushes into the headband when not in use. Its audio controls are built into the base station, which also functions as a charging dock.
Its comfort is also excellent, thanks to the soft material covering its foam headband and ear cups. The earcups are a bit smaller than the Astro A50’s, which reduces pressure on your ears and makes them more comfortable for long gaming sessions. The earcups are designed to fit over glasses, and they can be rotated upwards or downwards to ensure you get a good seal.
The SteelSeries Arctis Nova pro has a few more features than the Astro A50 Gen 4 Wireless 2019, such as ANC and a customizable audio profile that you can set with the companion app. Its microphone is also a bit more sensitive and picks up less background noise, and it’s compatible with multiple platforms, including PCs.
