For serious gamers, a high-performance gaming headset is just as important as a pro-level controller, solid and speedy Internet and one powerful console (or maybe two).
Available for pre-order for $379.99, the Logitech G Astro A5O X is a wireless dual-band gaming headset, which means it can connect and switch audio from console-to-console with just a tap of a button with Logitech G’s “PlaySync.” It’s ideal for those times when you want to finish up a game on your PlayStation 5 and then start a new game on your Xbox Series X.
It delivers exceptional gaming audio that’s clear, robust and completely immersive with deep and heart-thumping bass — thanks to Logitech G’s 40mm “Pro-G Graphene” audio drivers and 24-bit “Lightning Wireless” technology for a low latency wireless audio with virtually no lag.
“Over the last decade, the A50 has become an icon in gaming headsets due to its focus on gamer-centric design, premium sound, and superior comfort and durability,” said Ujesh Desai, general manager of Logitech G, in a press release. “Our new A50 X elevates this beloved headset with an unmatched level of performance by combining the A50’s award-winning design with several new features and advanced technologies that truly revolutionize gameplay.”
Meanwhile, the wireless gaming headset — which has comfortable padded earcups and omnidirectional microphones — comes with a base station that works as a go-between the headset itself and your 4K TV via HDMI 2.1 for better performance and audio. It also works as a charging station for the wireless headset with up to 24 hours of battery life per charge.
Compatible with Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and most PC and Mac gaming sets, the Logitech G Astro A5O X Wireless Gaming Headset — which comes in black and white models — is set for release in early 2024. It’s available for pre-order for $379.99 at logitechg.com.
