Astro A20 Gen 2 Wireless Headset Trailer
The Astro A20 Gen 2 headset features various improvements upon the previous design, including increased battery life and wireless range. The redesigned headset costs $119.99, which is currently the same price as the first-gen A20. Considering they’re the same price, the new version is clearly the better deal of the two.
The new and improved A20 headset has been designed with next-generation consoles in mind. This makes it among the first gaming headsets to be compatible with upcoming consoles. Don’t retire your old Astro gaming headset yet, though. The A20 Gen 2 headset isn’t the only Astro product ready for next-gen consoles. In a recent blog post, Astro also announced that their “entire line of gaming headsets are Future Proof,” as they will all be compatible with both PS5 and Xbox Series X. This includes all current-gen Astro gaming headsets as well as MixAmp audio hardware.
“We are excited to launch a new generation of our A20 headset which features full compatibility with Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5,” said Aron Drayer, VP of Marketing for Astro Gaming. “The A20 delivers the sound quality, comfort and durability gamers expect from ASTRO with excellent wireless performance and multi-platform potential at an attractive price.”
Alongside the new Astro A20 headset comes a new, more discreet wireless USB transmitter designed for both PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Each new A20 headset comes with its own Gen 2 USB transmitter. The transmitter is also available as a standalone purchase for $19.99.
The Astro A20 Gen 2 gaming headset is currently available for pre-order and will start shipping in October 2020. For more information, head over to the Astro Gaming website.
