ASTRO Gaming announced the launch of their latest headset the ASTRO A50 in Australia and New Zealand through their distributor Bluemouth Interactive today. The ASTRO A50s is a fully wireless headset system that takes ASTRO’s famous Mixamp 5.8 and builds them right into the A50’s headset. The headset is engineered to provide audiophile grade Dolby 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound in a light weight and comfortable package. The ASTRO A50s is compatible with the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, the PC, and more through a wide range of input options. KleerNet 5.8GHz wireless technology is used to ensure the least amount of interference with the highest quality sound. ASTRO is adding the ASTRO Audio Profiles with their product for the first time. This new feature allows users to tweak their sound to best suit their activity. The added ability to create and share their profiles online is currently in development.
The ASTRO A50s are priced at $349.99 in Australia and $449.99 in New Zealand and will be available at EB Games and JB HiFi.
