Astro A10 Budget Gaming Headset Review: Worth $60 Bucks?

Astro has never widely released a headphone that cost less $250. There’s a ton of competition in the gaming header market these days and companies like Hyper X have made lower cost headphones competitive, at least in terms of sound quality to the higher-priced players. This is a smart move for Astro. They suck up some of that market and maybe the A10s are a gateway drug to the higher priced models. But it’s only a smart move if the headset doesn’t suck, so lets talk pros and cons and see if they hold up.

PeeWee's Productions says:

Just want to say.. These headsets are amazing when you hook them up to a MIX amp PRO/TR… The mic is the best out of all the headsets and when you pair it up with the MIX amp you will get amazing sound. Remeber the A10 use the same speakers as the A40s and 50s. Yes they sound low on PS4 without the mix amp but if you have 40$ around the house just go on ebay pick a cheap one up and u will have a high end set up.

Oscar Otter says:

Good review, goes over lots of details. Thanks


Let me know if your having trouble with video quality. Some folks have said there’s something going on but everything looks fine for me in this end.

Alfred Miranda says:

Lincons are 5$ each

Blitz Quake says:

I’ve heard that this headsets audio is terrible on the ps4, is that true? I play tactical fps games on ps4.

Derek Bowens says:

What about when they are paired with the mixamp m60?

Hazem Gohar says:

brant mann says:

Love to see a video comparison of the A40’s vs A10’s with mix amp. Seems like a good money saving salution.

Bro, 3 Lincolns though?…3 Lincolns though???… Did you not like even check and save yourself the embarrassment before you just said that? None of us would have even known that you needed to check. But it sounds like you didn’t do that. I couldn’t even finish the video after that
