Unboxing the ASTRO A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station

November 5, 2016

This week we gave you a first look at the ASTRO A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station. Now the time has come to unbox the new headset. We received the PlayStation 4 and PC version for our unboxing and review but keep in mind that the Xbox One and PC version is basically identical minus the color of the device and the way it interacts with that respective console. The A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station is available now for $299. Before you order your own, check out everything that you’ll find in the box when you pick one up in the video below

UPDATE: An eagle-eyed reader helped me realize that ASTRO did in fact include the toslink/optical cable in the box, it was just in packaging that I overlooked during my initial unboxing. Sorry for not catching it right out of the gate. I’m old.  (Thanks Anthony!)
