Astro A30 headphone review

Metropol’s tech guru Ian Knott takes a look at Logitech’s first gaming/lifestyle headphone release under its new Astro marque.

The Astro A30 wireless headset is a versatile and high-quality audio device released under the Logitech brand. It is designed to work with a wide range of devices and platforms, including PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PC, mobile, and more. Whether you’re gaming, listening to music, or taking calls, the Astro A30 has you covered.

One of the standout features of the Astro A30 is its connectivity options. It can connect to devices using Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio, or Logitech’s proprietary Lightspeed wireless technology with a dongle. This gives you plenty of flexibility in how you use the headset, whether you’re at home or on the go.

In terms of design, the Astro A30 is available in either white or navy color options. It also has customisable speaker tags, so you can add a personal touch to your headset. The ear cushions are made of memory foam and have a faux leather finish, providing a comfortable and premium feel. Removing the magnetised speaker tags reveals a very stylish shiny rainbow metallic finish.

When it comes to sound quality, the Astro A30 delivers. It offers good audio and positional audio for gaming, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the action. The headset can also connect to multiple devices simultaneously and mix audio between them, giving you even more flexibility in how you use it.

In terms of controls, the Astro A30 has a joystick on the earcup for easy access to volume and other functions, along with a detachable boom-mic. Using the Logitech G Mobile App, you can adjust the input and output settings, which is essential due to both microphone options being very sensitive. Use the default settings at your peril.

In terms of battery life, the Astro A30 can last around 27 hours on a single charge. It can be charged via USB-C, making it easy to keep powered up.

The Astro A30 has a robust build quality and is built to last. It has some weight to it, yet feels balanced and comfortable to wear for extended periods.  That extra weight also gives you a sense that the headband won’t snap easily as with so many other gaming headsets.

When using the Lightspeed dongle, the headset has a range of up to 30 feet, giving you plenty of freedom to move around.

Overall, the Astro A30 is a top-quality wireless headset that offers a great combination of versatility, sound quality, and comfort. It has an RRP of $492 and comes with a very stylish carrying case, USB-C and 3.5mm audio cable. At present you can find them on sale for anything from $300 upwards. Whether you’re a gamer, music lover, or just need a reliable headset for work or personal use, the Astro A30 is a great choice.
