Pros: Comfortable, compatibility, sound and mix amp pro.

Cons: No boom mic

This headset the minute I put it on was so comfrtable and have been using this headset for over 2 months now and it feels so great still. The sound is great, coupled with the mix amp pro that comes with this pack is nice to be able to have eq modes already done for Gaming, Core, Media and Sports.

These modes are great as sometimes you want a more cineamtic experience you don't need to ALT+TAB out of a game or pause a movie to change the EQ. I find this nice.

The flexibility of the headset in terms of size is great as not everyone has the same size head or ears.

I have used these over 6 hours in gaming sessions and they don't hurt at all, the lightness of the headset makes this happen I think.

Construction of this headset is amazing, I love the strength and metal construction. To me having used plastic headsets before, this is nice.

Being wired doesn't bother me too much for this as I hide the wires although the A50's are wired if you want that.

Anyway what more is there to say about this product? It's light, comfortable, has great sound, is very compatible and has great construction.

Another thing I forgot to mention is the fact it works with PS3, Xbox 360 (These will work with next gen as there will be optical out on the Xbox One and PS4 as I've seen the units in real life) and PC.


One thing I don't like is the mic, it isn't a boom mic. The mic is fine but a boom microphone would've been nice.

I rate this a 9/10 due to not having a boom mic. thumb.gif
