PAX West 2019 (Some of us still call it Prime)

The ASTRO Gaming Crew is heading to Seattle once again for PAX West! This year the team has something awesome for the ASTRO Family. I’m not going to dance around it with a big lead up list of things you can do at our booth and around the show like demo our gear in tons of booths while playing great new games. I’m not going to bury the lead by telling you about all of the awesome streamers, esports players, youtube creators, and celebrities that you will get to hang out with, game with, and maybe even win some gear with. I won’t even waste your time telling you about the discount you can get on ASTRO Gaming Headsets, Controllers (that’s right the brand new C40 will be on sale in our booth only) and other ASTRO products. I won’t even get into it about the killer prizes you can win just by stopping by the booth and maybe playing a few games. You can’t even make me get into that stuff. I’m here to tell you about what you really want to hear.

 

ASTRO.ID

Last week we announce that in October we will be launching our new custom design A40 program. What we didn’t tell you is that fans attending PAX West 2019 will have a chance to get their hands on the new ASTRO.ID A40s a month before the program officially launches!

The ASTRO.ID in-booth experience will give you the opportunity to design your own personalized ASTRO.ID A40 TR Headset by selecting 6 different colors for 6 different headset parts. This allows for over 40,000 possible color combinations. We would say you should collect them all but that would be some other level if you did.

ASTRO Family members will have the opportunity to design their own personal ASTRO.ID A40 TR Headset and have it built on-site by a member of the ASTRO Crew (No you can’t specify which member so please don’t request Thadeous or Aron, do request Fletcher or Brandon though :). Designed by you, built by us. The ASTRO.ID A40s will cost $199.99 USD and will come packed in ballistic weave headset travel case to make sure you new swag makes it home safe from the show.
