  1. What the f%&#…where is the noise gate setting ? I never had a trouble with the led !
    Guys, this update is not serious !

  2. Hi,

    I was just wondering when we can expect the feature to be able to create custom equaliser settings. This is definitley something worth adding and I have seen many a person over the web talking about how great this would be.

  3. i was wondering if you guys can raise the footstep a little bit more on the mixamp pro mode preset because compared to the other presets they all sound a little bit like the same

  4. Give noisegate or gtfo … seriously, what is this?

  5. is anyone else having the problem of sounding like an astronaut on your a50’s? my friends complain that my astros sound like a kinect mic when talking and it buzzes too. im not sure if this would be a talk back cable problem or the headsets themselves

  6. hello, i just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone at astro for what i know has to be extremely hard work in creating this masterpiece of a headset. i am absolutely amazed with this product in its entirety and have had nothing but wonderful experiences with it. i did have a question about when we might expect to have the ability to customize our presets? thanks again and keep up the good work!

  7. “Once you have the firmware tool downloaded, plug in your A50, TXD
    MixAmp, or 2013 MixAmp Pro, and the tool will automatically recognize
    your current firmware status” What is the firmware tool? When I plug my a50s in I have to manually pick the download I want, it doesnt automatically do it or recognize what I already have
