ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Headset Review

The MixAMP TX is included in the box and serves as the transmitter and charging station for the headset. The Power/Pairing button and Dolby Headphone Button are located at the front, while the ASTRO logo is displayed in the centre. Despite my best efforts, the MixAmp TX smudges a bit too quickly and it is near impossible to keep it clean for a prolonged period of time. Whilst the glossy surface does look attractive, a more robust coating would have been preferred.

The Power/Pairing Button and Dolby Headphone Button both light up red when the transmitter is in use. When pairing the transmitter with a headset the Power/Pairing button will blink white, as will the LED in the headset. ASTRO ships the A50 pre-paired. It was only after updating the firmware that I had to go through the pairing process.

The back of the MixAmp TX houses the AUX, USB and optical inputs/outputs.

It is possible to connect other headsets to the MixAmp TX with ASTRO's MixAmp RX. As no RX was provided, functionality with 2 or more headsets could not be tested.
