So after 10 hours plus of use I can honestly say the Astro A50s are the real deal. The sound is excellent. Every time I wear them playing Destiny 2 I'm getting hit with a symphony of crisp, clear sound. It feels like I can hear sound effects layered over music layered over even more sound effects.
I've had headsets in the past that didn't go as loud as I would have liked but these do and then some. And even at very high volume I haven't heard a hint of distortion. The bass hits well but doesn't seem to want to reproduce the really low frequency stuff. In fact the bass is the only fault I can find with the headset so far. And even thats not so much a fault as it is just not as impressive as all the other aspects of the headset.
The ear pieces are incredibly comfortable. They feel like super soft memory foam covered in velvet. Some headsets have made my ears feel hot after prolonged use and this hasent been a problem at all with the A50's. I haven't had any disconnection or static issues whatsoever thus far.
A few features I like are:
Mic mutes in up position
Headset goes into sleep mode if you lay them down, and repower when you put them back on (upright)
Ear pieces twist to lay against chest when hanging around neck
Good battery life at higher volumes.
Base charging cradle is convenient
Voice mic monitoring
Based on use so far, if I had to grade them at this point I'd give them a 9/10
