Astro have just released a new headset – the A20s.
Comfortable – and more importantly, durable – the A20s feature 40mm drivers that provide excellent immersive sound, covering all ends of the spectrum.
The wireless headsets come in different units compatible with Xbox One, PS4 or PC, and we secured the PS4/PC unit to play with. The headset connects via a dongle that’s a bit on the large side as far as wireless adapters go, but not overly inconvenient. The dongle connects to the PC via a micro-USB – that’s also how the headset itself charges, and the optical cable connects for the PS4.
Astro’s A20s have a 15-hour battery life; we put them to use in the STACK office for two days without charging, and the battery didn’t go flat. The low latency allows for zero dropouts, and we never experienced a falter in sound.
The Astro Command Centre is helpful for customising your EQ settings. The mic on the side simply flips out of the way when you’re not using it, and the volume dial is conveniently positioned on the rear of the right cup.
Drawing upon Astro’s vast experience in the headset marketplace, the A20s offer comfort and quality at a price that won’t completely break the bank.
