  1. No difference, it took you 5 months to make this worthless update..

  2. No difference? Hmmm I can clearly hear a difference. My fellow A50 users don’t sound as loud or distorted as they used to. Chat Monitor also seems to have improved. Good job, ASTRO!

  3. My friends definitely notice a difference in chat in game now 🙂 thanks astro you still have yet to disappoint me 🙂

  4. This made my chat worse. My voice becomes periodically distorted now

  5. i like how they admit they’re product needs tweeking and not try to blame to consumers…. 😀 also a50’s over turtlebeach PX 51 😀
