Are there any headsets better than the Astro A50s?

A40's are better imo because you don't have to worry about wireless interference or problems.

Are you 100% happy with it? Even with all the wires? Also, does it have any type of noise or wind guard on it?

Anybody who says they are 100% happy with their headset is either lying or doesn't know how it could be better. There's always trade offs and sacrifices.

The A40 has a terrific mic. I love my Sennheiser PC 360 but the mic on the A40 is better. Unfortunately for my friends, I care more about my own audio then how I sound in their ears! But they say that the PC360 sounds fine.

I'm not sure how much extra noise you have in your house, but the A40 (and PC360) mic are pretty good about only picking up your voice unless the noise is in that same room with you. It will pick up other people talking. I'd say that the PC360 are better about picking up only your voice, plus the PC360 have a nice mute system where it mutes the mic if you flip it up.

I think my A50s are terrific. I liked having the mixamp from when I had A40s, but overall I feel that the A50s are more comfortable on my head somehow.

I never had the A50 but I've never heard of anybody complaining about wireless noise, such as what you get with the X41.

Torn between the XO7's and the A50s'. Also wondering if there will be better headsets than both of these, that may end up coming out this Holiday season. I dunno if i should choose a set now, or wait for NOV and see what the new options are.

I love my A50s and never had any problems with wireless interference but they are the only gaming headset I have used so I am not sure how they compare with other gaming headsets.

How long do A50s stay charged?
Interestingly enough, video game companies used to be able to make money without selling out like cheap prostitutes.-KaiserWarrior

So no crackling or popping with the a50?
