First time posting a link so take it easy on me!

Groupon has the popular Astro A50 on sale for $100 as a manufacturer refurb. Some of the other recent deals have been seller refurb so this is nice to see. Sold and shipped by Groupon so free returns should be available.

I ordered a pair and had to pay 10% sales tax here in WA but it was worth the extra money on tax compared to the Newegg deal given the Manufacturer refurb and free returns if needed.

Specifications
Model number: A50
5.8GHz wireless technology
Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound
Compatible with any major gaming platform, including mobile
Wear pro-style around neck or over the head
EQ modes for movies, hardcore gaming, and shooting games
Built-in noise-canceling mic and controls
Built-in rechargeable battery operates for up to 10 hours per full charge
Product dimensions: 9”x4”x9”
Weight: 12.8oz.
Condition: manufacturer refurbished
For warranty information, contact Groupon customer support

In the box: headset, wireless 5.8Ghz Transmitter, headset stand, 3.3’ USB power cable, 1.6’ USB charging cable, 3.3’ optical cable, 5’ Xbox Live chat cable

Edit: Gen 1. and includes Xbox One adapter, works natively with PS4

Appears to be the 1st gen based off the color scheme. Still a great headset.

The PS4 editions I have are black and blue and the Xbox one editions are black and green.

It says in the details that one is included in the box. If it isn't I will certainly be returning it but I have no reason to think that is wrongly listed.

i think you misread the details, it says it includes an Xbox Live chat cable. not an xbox one adapter. you will need a Microsoft chat adapter to communicate on XBL.

also i wouldnt return them if i were you. i own the gen 2 version of this headset and it is fantastic on xbox one. you will be very happy with it imo, just score yourself a chat adapter off ebay or amazon.

The mic is terrible (not sure which version). I highly recommend the Logitech 933's over these.

you will need a chat adapter only if you have the older version xbox one remote. the newer version has an aux input and adapter is not needed. i have the gen 2 of these and people dont have a problem hearing me. these headsets are loud. i tried turtlebeaches and i have to turn the volume up high to barely hear.

Try 'JUNGLE' for an additional $40 off (might be new customers, only).

if you have one of the newer controllers with the 3.5mm Jack built in then it should work fine with the cable included correct?

ok i just tested plugging a 2.5mm to 3.5mm 3 pole chat cable directly into the controller from the headset and it works brilliantly. on the console i maxed out the headset volume and lowered the mic monitoring to the minimum. hope this helps

also the chat cable i use i buy off ebay. i think they were originally designed for the turtle beach x41 but it is a 2.5mm to 3.5mm 3 pole cable.
