The Astro A10 Gen 2 gaming headset has launched with an all-new, overhauled design, packing even more functionality into an increasingly accessibly-priced gaming headset. The Astro A10 appears to continue Astro Gaming’s reputation for high-performance audio and features and extremely flexible polymer headband. Astro Gaming recently Tweeted the launch saying ‘The all-new redesigned A10 Headset has landed.’

The synth-heavy 30-second sizzle real shows off some of the features that appear to set the Astro A10 gaming headset apart from the competition, especially at this price point.

Astro has long enjoyed a position of considerable importance in the gaming headset space, producing some of the best gaming headsets out there, the A50s in particular are notorious for their long-last comfort and stratospheric price of over $300. Since being acquired by Logitech in 2017 they’ve experienced rapid growth and ‘Astro’ has become a byword for gaming headset quality. Astro Headsets cater to every step of the pricing spectrum and the Astro A10 seems set to continue holding the line at the lower end.
