The A50s are presented in a large box that has a black cardboard outer shell. Taking the box out of this shell reveals a beautiful graffitied design. You will also find an extremely helpful and well designed brochure that explains how to set up the device for each system. I was extremely surprised with the amount of great quality connections that were included in the box. These included a beautiful plastic stand, an optical cable, a 2.5mm cable for Xbox voice chat, A mix amp and two mini-USB to USB cables. Everything included is of extremely high quality and well thought out in design.
The first thing you will notice about the Astro A50s is that they are quite bulky. Despite this they are extremely lightweight and really comfortable. The headphones were clearly manufactured with design and comfort as a huge factor. Every piece of the headset is covered in a soft foam. I noticed that i’d forget that I was even wearing headphones after a few hours of wearing them.
I found the A50s to be a bit loose-fitting on my head but I really appreciated this as it made them extremely comfortable with my glasses. The headphones feature an all black matte design which makes them incredibly stylish and instantly make them feel like a premium product. The red, exposed cables that run up the headphones are a great design element that gives the headphones a much-loved pop of colour.
