Gaming Headset: Astro A50 Generation 4 by Astro Gaming
The A50 is a wireless surround sound gaming headset with the hardcore gamer in mind. Whether you are a professional gamer or a keen gaming enthusiast, the Astro A50 Generation 4 is the ultimate gaming headset.
Compatible with the Playstation 4, XBOX 1 and PC/MAC the Astro A50 is absolutely packed with features. As with all Astro Gaming headsets, there are a host of settings to customise in-game sounds and voice communication. Unlike previous generations of the Astro A50 Gaming headset, the Generation 4 includes Dolby ATMOS!
What is Dolby ATMOS Surround Sound?
Dolby ATMOS provides an extra layer of sound compared to Dolby 7.1 and allows for fully immersive 3D surround sound. Early gaming headsets provided stereo sound so you could hear sounds from the left or right. The next generation of gaming headsets featured Dolby Surround Sound, so you could pinpoint your enemies no matter what direction they are coming from. Whilst you could hear the direction your enemies were coming from you didn’t know if they were above, below or level with you. Up until now, surround sound has been a 2D thing and in modern games – think Fortnight or Call of Duty – this can be a problem. With Dolby Atmos the Astro A50 Wireless Gaming Headset solves that problem, with positional speakers giving you a fully 3-Dimensional gaming experience.
