Two of the most anticipated additions to the ASTRO Family have arrived! The Halo Edition A50 and Halo Edition A40 with collectable Speaker Tags are now available!
ASTRO Gaming was born from the professional Halo circuit, and players’ need for high quality audio and clear communication. As passionate gamers ourselves, ASTRO recognized the potential for Halo eSports and jumped at the chance to improve the player’s experience with their help. Thus the A40 + MixAmp Pro were born! By engineering a private communication network, high quality microphones, and 7.1 surround sound, competitors could now hear the game with precision and teammates without yelling. Over the years we’ve taken great pride in improving the sport of gaming and are honored to become the official headset for one of our favorite franchises.
Today we’re excited to launch our collaboration with 343 Industries, bringing the Master Chief’s style to our Xbox One Halo Edition A50, the Halo Edition A40 and collectable Speaker Tags.
Immerse yourself in ASTRO Audio with the new Halo A50 wireless headset and lead your team to victory! Ready for battle, the A50’s armored frame has been decked out with the original Spartan green, is accented with gold vertical size adjusters, and proudly displays the Master Chief’s 117 Spartan tag. The headset’s integrated MixAmp™ gives players the power of Dolby headphone audio and the AG1 chat cable enables clear communication with your team. Whether your passion is campaign or multiplayer, the Halo Xbox A50 completes the hardcore Halo fan’s experience.
Can’t decide which Halo game is your favorite? Relive our favorite hero’s journey with our Halo Edition A40 Headsets and Speaker Tags. Celebrating the iconic art from Halo: The Master Chief Collection, these Speaker Tags will transform your headset into a weapon suited for Spartan warfare. As the preferred weapon of choice for Halo Pros and legends alike, the A40 headset + MixAmp™ Pro is perfect for those pursuing glory in the upcoming Halo Championship Series.
This product launch is just the beginning of a celebration of all things Halo. This weekend we’re sponsoring the Halo: The Master Chief Collection Launch Invitational alongside ESL. This Invitational will be featuring 32 of the biggest names in eSports—along with OpTic Halo—going head to head in Halo 2: Anniversary Multiplayer for the chance to win $50,000 in prizes as well as the chance to be the first to play the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta.
The competition will take place at ESL’s Southern California headquarters and if you’re unable to attend, you can catch all the action live on Twitch.tv/Halo, November 8th – 9th. Be sure to follow @ESL on Twitter as they’ll also be providing a giveaway where two lucky winners will receive the A40 headset + MixAmp™ Pro bundled with all four Halo Speaker Tag sets.
Additional Highlights will be airing during the HaloFest live broadcast on Nov. 10th, including a sneak peak of the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta, the world premiere of the first episode of “Halo: Nightfall” and exclusive interviews with 343 Industries and the talent of “Halo: Nightfall”.
It’s a Halo weekend you won’t want to miss.
