Astro Gaming A50 Wireless Headset for PC/PS3/Xbox 360. 4.5 5 27 29
Thanks great purchase Work fine loving them 29 July 2015
Astro a50 good all round headset, easy to setup and the battery life on them is so good 29 July 2015
Best headphones Easy to use , very comfy 5stars all the way .wish I had got them sooner 29 July 2015
Bargain Everything I anticipated and more. At £90 less than the Astro A50 Gen 2's... I done a lot of reading and figured out the only real difference was purely astetics. Sound quality is excellent, comfort is top notch the only thing I found frustrating was the assembly of the stand however 9/10, would recommend these to anyone. 15 July 2015
very good value. I am 75 years of age, but my 12 year old grandson had no problem connecting up these head phones.very good sound and I am very happy with them. 15 July 2015

For example if I wanted to listen to music from my computer while also listening to the game sound from my games console would both be able to play through the headset together?

Answer: 
Hi Alex,

I have looked into this for you and can confirm that it is possible to do this.
To achieve this you need to connect the TxD unit to a PC using the USB cable for sound and voice communication, and the optical to the console for sound.

I hope this helps!

Looking at the pictures all I see is a different colour of wire from blue to red. And of course the price hike.

Answer: 
Hi Peter,

I have looked into this for you and can confirm that the main difference between the two models is the systems they are compatible with.

Cat number: 139/4973 is compatible with PC/PS3/Xbox 360.
Cat number: 362/7301 is compatible with Mac/PC/PS3/PS4.

I hope this helps,

Answer: 
Hi Jordan,

I have since looked into this and can confirm the following.

All Astro Gaming Headsets are compatible wth the Xbox One but require the use of the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter to enable online voice chat.

It is also recommended that you update to the latest firmware for the full Xbox One audio experience.

Please see the following link for further information - http://www.astrogaming.co.uk/a50-wi...

I hope this helps and thanks for using Argos Q&A.
