Price Decrease: Although less likely based on historical trends, Astro could aim to increase its market share by offering the new generation at a slightly lower cost. This move, however, would be a significant deviation from their previous pricing strategy. Astro’s software is expansive but intuitive, making it easy for gaming newbies and professionals alike to tune the audio to their personal taste, and we like being able to have three different EQ presets just a button press away. The automatic muting of the mic when raised is a nice convenience feature and the separation of volume for game and chat is welcome (once you have committed button location to memory).

So like many MANY people on here, my A50's randomly stopped working today. Yeah, they just disconnected from my base station and no matter how many times I hard reset them, or tried to put the base into bootloader mode, I wasn't getting anywhere. I couldn't even update the firmware, it would fail at Step 3. Users have reported significant issues using Astro Command Center. As a result, we have lowered the App Support score from '7.5' to '6.0' and added information regarding the issue to this box. It is important to note that a hard reset will erase all settings, including any custom EQ settings. You will need to reconfigure your headset settings after the reset.

To reset your Astro A50 without a PC, ensure the power switch is ON. Then, hold down the Dolby and Game/Voice balance buttons for at least 15 seconds. This will hard reset your headset, and it should work again. How can I fix my Astro A50 if there’s no sound?

For connectivity, the Astro A50 Gen 4 wireless headset comes with near perfect wireless functionality with a range of up to 15m which is more than enough for most gaming environments.

Before resetting your Astro A50 headset, there are a few things you need to do to ensure a successful reset process. This section will guide you through the preparation steps. Charging the Headset This consistent pricing strategy suggests that Astro is keen on providing high-quality audio products at a stable, predictable cost for its loyal consumer base. Considering this pattern, we can venture a few educated predictions for the Astro A50 Gen 5 price: Astro headphones have very good microphone performance, and people you play with won't have trouble understanding you. Their recording quality is great, and your voice sounds full-bodied and clear. For anyone who currently uses a much cheaper gaming headset and is considering taking their setup to the next level, spending a chunk more will bring you a hugely improved experience. Pricey headsets are wireless for a start, while being more comfortable, customisable, and delivering better sound.

Move the base station to a different location to ensure it is not too close to other electronic devices that could cause interference.

Launch the Astro Command Center App, it should show the base station as updated and the headphones as still needing an update, however the headphones MIGHT be showing as charging at this point (the charge status LED's will be indicating that its charging again). Due to their high notoriety in the gaming industry, their headphones are pricey; you can find better-performing products at a lower price, especially when looking at cheaper Astro headsets. On the upside, you still get a good product with Astro. It’s important to note that a hard reset will erase all settings and configurations on your headset, so you’ll need to set it up again after the reset. If you are experiencing issues with your Astro A50 Gen 3 headset, a hard reset may be necessary. A hard reset will erase all settings and restore the headset to its factory default state. Here are the steps to reset your Astro A50 Gen 3:

While these are informed predictions, the actual price will depend on a variety of factors such as production costs, market competition, and the new features offered in the Astro A50 Gen 5. Desired Enhancements for the Next Version Software issues: If your headset is not working properly due to a software issue, resetting it might help. Before you reset, ensure that the software is up to date and that there are no conflicts with other programs. I can say with 100% certaintly that main cause of the issue seems to be something in the firmware and you CANT fix it / update the A50's to fix the issue with any other version of Astro Command Center other than the one from the Microsoft Store. With the base station still disconnected from the PC, hard reset the A50's by pressing the Dolby and Game buttons for 20 seconds while the headphones are in the power 'off' position.When I first wrote this Astro A50 Gen 4 review, it was one of the hottest gaming peripherals on the market. Today, that stands as somewhat true, however, with plenty of new releases from rival competitors, can the Astro A50’s still live up to the original hype? Resetting your Astro A50 headset is not something you should do often. It should only be done when you need to troubleshoot a problem that you cannot fix by other means. Here are some situations when you might need to reset your Astro A50: Microphone not working: If your microphone suddenly stops working, resetting your headset might fix the problem. Before you reset, make sure that the microphone is not muted and that it is properly positioned. For connecting to Xbox + Playstation, the Base Station of the device is necessary as it acts as the intermediary to connect between different devices. The base station of the device needs to be powered up using the POWER slot present of the rear, and then the device needs to be plugged in with the Micro USB for PC connectivity and OPT port with Optical cable to connect to PS or Xbox.
