ASTRO Gaming announce new headset lineup

E3 News

ASTRO Gaming have continually tweaked their headset formula to keep bringing gamers the best and up-to-date tech in their line of A40 and A50 gaming headphones, but now they’ve decided to set their sights on those looking to drop considerably less dollar on a headset for their gaming platform of choice.

 

 

The ASTRO A10 is compatible with the whole Xbox One family of consoles and can be picked up for a mere $60/£55. The headset can also be used in conjunction with ASTRO’s M60 MixAmp

 

 

“ASTRO’s mission is to improve the sport of gaming – our innovative products and cutting-edge technologies enhance the experience and make it more immersive, exciting and memorable.” said Aron Drayer, VP of Marketing for ASTRO Gaming. “With the A10 we wanted to challenge ourselves to see if we could deliver that same ASTRO experience at a price point that is more attainable for the average consumer.  Whether you’re gaming at home or an aspiring pro, at ASTRO, we’re just as serious about the comfort and quality of your gaming experience as you are. We’re confident that you’ll be impressed with what we’ve been able to accomplish with the A10.”
