Have some Dell rewards money I can use on these, so pretty tempted as I've heard good things about Astros. Don't personally know anyone who owns them...what is the difference between Xbox/PS compatibility? They look like different colors, but are they physically incapable of working with the other?

And wired vs wireless... I don't know if the wire would be something I notice very much. However the mix amp on the wired version, does it give you any benefit that might not be apparent? Like better controls on the headphones that the wireless may not have?

Still looking into figuring out what model version these both are just to see if the reviews are outdated on them for any reason. If someone knows of a good review for these models that'd be awesome.

I'm surprised no one is buying the Used - Like New one's from Amazon for $44

I can see them changing to a different picture, but it's hard to tell if it's a change in item or just the wrong picture. That's troublesome given the cost of them.

Update on this...I contacted Dell's Customer Service..and supposedly it's a typo on their product description. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever that the Gen 4 lists a price but it SHOULD be Gen 3 ....even though all pictures show up right. And Astro website has the same price.

I can't even find the Gen 3 listed for the A50s on Dell, it makes most sense that they screwed up with a picture affiliation when they replaced the old version with the new on their store front. Shrug.

Anyone else have any better luck getting it clarified? Or is it something that will be a relatively easy return if they do send the old version in anyone's experience?

Damn I didn't even know about that deal until you mentioned it... Have an old pair of a50s that won't connect anymore so do need an upgrade but I can't buy these knowing they were $100 less just a month ago. I blame you!!!
Have you reset them? My gen 3's will periodically go out but a quick reset brings them back. You hold the Dolby button and the game button simultaneously for 10 seconds while it is powered on.

i have a pair of gen 3 still going strong and by far my fav headphones i've bought. anyway i also had this issue and sometimes the reset function might not work, if this is the case you have to sync them with the windows 10 program again and the last resort is to download the app from the windows store and sync with that app, thats how i revived mine when they were not connecting anymore and was about to throw them. hope this info helps anyone out there and long live the A50

Yeah the resyncing used to work to fix the problem but not anymore. Never used them with the windows 10 program (they're hooked up to my Xbox). I'll give that a try when I get home thanks a bunch!

How may I help you today?

I am trying to purchase Astro a50 gen 4. Which is on sale for 239
8:22:56 AM Customer Anto
the product page says gen 4 and shows gen 4 image and once I add it to the cart, in cart it shows gen 3 image.
8:23:11 AM Customer Anto
I am worried if the product is correct
8:23:52 AM Agent Ma_Krizia_Ginelli_Ba
Hello Anto. I'm glad that you chatted in. Let me see what I can do to help you with your concern...
8:24:57 AM Agent Ma_Krizia_Ginelli_Ba
The product is the correct one. I do apologize for the confusion that this has cause but it's an error on th online website which we have already raised and reported to our Head Marketing Team so they can fix it.

I can confirm in any case that you'll be ordering the Astro a50 gen 4 and will be receiving the correct item when ordered.

Our internal tools do show the Astro a50 gen 4 when we add the part number to cart.
8:25:26 AM Customer Anto
Thanks for the confirmation
