The difference between the ASTRO A50 and the elder product comes right from the matte outer shell of the earcup, as well as the red part of the wire (instead of the black color in the previous design). It looks fragile, but actually used. The application shows that the A40 does not experience any wire breaks. Therefore, it can be believed that the A50 will be just as durable.
Behind the right earcup is a volume control wheel, which fits within the reach of your thumb. A little further, is the power button with an indicator light, and a switch to switch between 3 different sound modes.
Quite easily, these are some of the most comfortable headphones you’ll ever wear. The weight of the A50 is slightly higher than that of the A40 (367 grams compared to 322 grams) due to the integration of more technology.
The wireless connection used is still the same 5.8GHz technology that was introduced with the MixAmp 5.8. At the same time, Astro also equips the A50 with KleerNET lossless audio processing technology.
With the A50, there are 3 sound modes for you to choose from: Media (bass boost), Core (balanced), and Pro (treble boost). Following in the footsteps of Turtle Beach, Astro also said that users will soon be offered the ability to create their own modes (although there is no exact time).
