It's been six years since Logitech bought Astro and the brand has kept pumping out great gaming headsets in the years since. With the arrival of the ASTRO A50 X LIGHTSPEED (their all caps), Logitech is pushing for serious premium cred with a clever charging base station and easy one-button switching between Xbox, Playstation and PC gaming.

And yes, there's a price tag to match.

The headset comes in black and white but has a very stylish design – understated but impactful. The headset runs on 40mm graphene diaphragms which Logitech calls a 'breakthrough' material for clarity and detail. The microphone runs at 16-bit 48kHz throughput for a high resolution clarity.

The base station is a real feature here, giving magnetic click in charging so you're always topped up and ready to go without the charge cable fuss. This is also where you connect your consoles and PC for quick switching to whatever you want to play, with both HDMI 2.1 and USB-C connectivity. PLUS there's simultaneous Bluetooth so you can mix Discord chat with game audio or whatever else you want to blend in - maybe keep an ear on your phone?

The Logitech G Astro A50X drops first half of 2024 and will retail for $749.95.
