What Is Not on the Box
What the brand doesn’t always tell you…
Released in early 2022, the Astro A10 Gen 2 is a closed-back entry-level gaming headset that aims to deliver almost zero audio latency, which is excellent for veteran gamers. Just like the best headphones in its category, it features precise and dynamic transducers on both earcups for analog stereo audio. And very similar to the highest-rated over-the-ear headphones in its range, it comes with cloth earpads.
Unfortunately, it is strictly limited to a 1/8-inch detachable TRRS wire-based analog connection with a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a mic splitter that features in-line volume controls and doesn’t have active noise canceling.
Our Apple AirPods Max review would be worth a look if you need ANC on an over-the-ear headset. The headset also comes with a built-in microphone with Discord certification for clear voice pickup.
