A20 Headset + Xbox Series X|S Setup Guide

This guide will provide you with all the information you will need to set up your A20 Wireless Gen 2 Headset with your Xbox Series X or S.

Here is the ASTRO equipment you will need to connect:

  • A20 Headset
  • USB Transmitter


Step by Step

Step 1: Make sure your Xbox Series X|S system is turned on.

Step 2: Press the USB Transmitter’s multi-function button to enter Xbox mode. The transmitter light will illuminate green when you have done so successfully, and will illuminate white when in PC mode.

Step 3: Turn on your A20 Gen 2 Headset.

Step 4: Open your Xbox menu by pressing the Xbox button on your controller, then head to the Settings menu.

Step 5: Choose the Volume & audio output option.

Step 6: Under Volume options, make sure that the Party chat output is set to Headset.

Step 7: Under Headset audio, make sure that the Headset format is set to Windows Sonic.

If you have purchased a Dolby Atmos license, choose that instead and use the Dolby Access app to customize additional Equalizer and audio settings. Here is more info about Dolby Atmos and Xbox Series X|S audio.

Step 8: Close out the menu and start up your favorite game.

Step 9: You’re good to go! Be sure to check in-game options regarding potential player muting or other audio setup, as these features can differ from game to game.
