    Tango vs Astro A50, November 6, 2012

    = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Black Ops II Tango Programmable Wireless Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset (Accessory)

    I am posting because I was looking for a comparative review between the Astro A50s and the Turtle Beach Tango before I went out and bought one and I couldn’t find one. I saw gamers here waiting for a similar review so I decided to do one. This isn’t a professional comprehensive review this is just my take and how I ended up with one over the other. I am not saying which you should buy I am just noting my opinion. IF you have either one of these headsets then you have a great headset and you will be very happy. For me there were some things that stood out over the other and because of that I was able to make my decision and I feel I made the right choice!

    So I picked up both the Astro A50s and the Turtle Beach Tangos to test out. I used each one for about two days on various games and tried all the features to help me decide which of these 300 dollar headsets I wanted to keep.

    In the end I felt the Tango’s are well ahead of the Astro A50s in terms of awesome features like software to create user custom EQ presets for audio or chat, surround angles, removable microphone and Bluetooth, which makes it compatible any Bluetooth device like a real headset. The sound quality on both the A50s and Tango are great so any edge the A50s may have isn’t enough to lose out on all the features the Tango’s give you. Honestly even if the Astro A50 were $100 cheaper I would still opt for the Tango’s. The Astros just don’t have enough features, and with no Bluetooth you have to use them with the transmitter only. The Tango’s have incredible features and since I can use them with my Vita, smartphone and tablet I feel has more use and therefore a better value.

    I am not a fanboy I have wanted the Astros for a long time, when the A50s came out I decided to make the plunge, I was a bit disappointed which lead me to try the Tangos. Between the two the Tango’s are it. Turtle Beach really made an awesome headset that is packed full of gaming features and is comfortable and stylish. The Astro A50s are bare bones compared to the Tango and the lack of features and comfort does not make up for the slight sound difference.
    So on to it!

    Setup: Verdict: Tango

    Astro A50: It wouldn’t power on via the PS3 Slim USB port. I had to go online and install a firmware for both the headset and the transmitter. Once I did that it worked somewhat. Every time I would power off the PS3 and power it on again the transmitter would not come on – I have to keep switching USB ports to get it to turn on. Not what I want to do for a 300 dollar set of headphones. Also you have to turn on both the headset and transmitter manually. No charge and play cable so I had to wait for it to charge before I could use it (I didn’t have a long USB)

    Turtle Beach Tango: No issues. When you turn on the headset the transmitter turns on automatically – small but great feature. The Tango’s also came with a long charge and play cable.

    Sound : Verdict: Astro A 50 (but only by a slight edge)

    Astro A50:
    Very nice, warm deep rich sound. I wouldn’t say I was blown away but they were nice. They have a bit more bass and volume then the Tangos.

    Turtle beach Tango:
    As with the Astro I wasn’t blown away but again these sound great. The Tangos produce a different sound from the A50s, they aren’t as warm but they do seem to have great clarity and still sound very awesome.

    Surround Sound: Verdict: TIE

    Both do surround sound and both sound awesome, listing to both I am happy with either one. The A50s do 7.1 the Tango’s do 5.1. I don’t think you need 7.1 as most movies and games aren’t even in 7.1 and really that is more used for bigger spaces. Also the 7.1 is almost too much for headphones and can make it a little harder to pinpoint direction like footsteps – you still will be able to great it just may be a little less accurate. 5.1 are plenty for headphones and you will be able to pinpoint better in my opinion. So for surround sound, they are both great!

    Surround Sound Angles: Verdict: Tango

    Astro A50: none

    Turtle Beach Tango: 6 surround angles. This is a very cool feature that lets you select 6 different surround angles,. The angles are basically simulating different distance and angle setups for the front and rear speakers and it works well. I use setting 5

    Comfort: Verdict: Turtle Beach Tango; Feels great even with extended gaming.

    I wore both headsets for extended periods of gaming

    Astro A50:
    They are a heavy headset. The ear cushions feel great no issue at all however the head strap felt uncomfortable after about 40 minutes due to the weight and was definitely noticeable. After longer game time I started adjusting the position of them on my head.

    Turtle Beach Tangos
    They have memory foam, are lighter and they did not get uncomfortable at any time of extended gaming,…

    Turtle Beach Call of Duty II Tango’s ROCK!!!, October 31, 2012

    Ordered these on October 25th 2012 and they were released on the 26th for shipment. Being that was a Friday the 1 day business shipping didn’t get them to me until the 29th as expected. First impressions: These appear to be MUCH better made than my Turtle Beach x4’s that they are replacing. They are solid, appear to be made of good material and have a nice feel to them. Included in the box were the headset, transmitter, Bluetooth chat puck, (1) optical cable & (1) USB power cable (The transmitter is powered by a USB power cable & does not plug into an outlet but into your Xbox), (1) short USB cable to plug into the headset for charging purposes when sitting on the transmitter, & (1) long USB cable to charge & play. The headset is factory paired with the Bluetooth puck so no set up required. Just hook up the transmitter with the two cables to the Xbox and go. WOW! Sound is amazing. 100% better than my x4’s. They are paired with the transmitter via dual channel wireless where my x4’s were infrared. IR required line of site & anybody or anything (my very large Weimaraner) walking between you and it would cause static or fallout of sound. There is NO problem like that with the Tango’s. Sound is very crisp with no static, hum, popping or fallout. Since Black Ops II isn’t out yet I fired up Modern Warfare 3. FANTASTIC! These things flat out ROCK!!!!! There are a number of presets built into the headset for different sound profiles that can be accessed by just a button push. These cover both chat & game sounds. It appears you can even program your own which I will try at some point. I have been using the presets but will experiment with all of the available options later. Also another very cool feature is the Bluetooth is dual pairing which means you can pair it with another Bluetooth device. I paired it with my Samsung Galaxy S III with no problems which enabled me to listen to my music while playing the game and chatting. How cool is that!!! Also supposed to be able to use your phone to make & receive calls while playing. Have not tried it yet but see no reason it wouldn’t work since the music does. My son has Astro A40’s and these beat them hands down. They also make my TB x4’s seem archaic. If you are an Xbox gamer & and can afford them then I don’t think you will be dissapointed.

    PROS: Too numerous to list! Best headset I have ever used or owned.
    CONS: None at present except maybe price. But I guess you get what you pay for.

    Honest review about the Tangos, December 9, 2012

    This review is from: Turtle Beach Call of Duty: Black Ops II Tango Programmable Wireless Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset (Accessory)

    Ok so this is my third headset, the others are Turtle Beach X12 and Tritton 720+ (I highly recommend both of those).

    After getting tired of seeing “OMG this headset sucks it has such a low volume” I have to make an update and put it first

    THIS HEADSET HAS PLENTY OF VOLUME
    USE THE ADVANCED SOUND EDITOR PEOPLE!! THIS IS WHY ARE YOU PAYING SO MUCH MONEY FOR THIS HEADSET

    Pros

    -Sound Quality is great, in MW3 I could easily tell where the enemies were. I’d give these 9.5 and Trittons 720+ 8.5
    -Advanced Sound Editor (ASE), make all the adjustments you want to your audio and chat. With a lot of room for presets.
    -Mic is 10/10 just like the X12
    -Very nice design
    -Wireless with no interference at all, everything works great
    -Voice morphing, yeah, this may be stupid and unnecesary but it can be real fun, you can make tons of jokes with this option

    Cons

    -Sound out of the box is meh, you have to go the ASE to get great sound quality
    -“EAR GUARD” THIS IS WHAT MAKES THE HEADSET TO HAVE “LOW VOLUME”, YOU CAN TURN IT OFF IN THE ADVANCED SOUND EDITOR! DOWNLOAD THE MANUAL FROM TURTLE BEACH WEBSITE
    -The most disappointing thing for me is that they do feel a bit cheap not what I would expect from a $300 headset, To me the X12 and Trittons are way better in this category, both feel more resistant to falls and everything
    -Optical cable, it is sooooo slim but I guess this isn’t a big deal…
    -Price is a little high since they feel cheap and the sound out of the box is not what you would expect

    I had to return these because I had some problems (sound would cut off for 5 seconds from time to time and it would make a distorted noise in the right earcup every 10 mins approx)

    Even with the problems I had with the Tangos I would say this is a nice headset (although a bit pricey imo) and probably better than the Astro A50 (I am sure my Tangos were one of the very few that were defective, but the A50 it seems like 50% are good and 50% are defective) and from what I’ve seen all over the internet the Warheads sound is somewhat mediocre for $300.

    UPDATE 01/25/2013

    After trying the old Astro mixamp with the Sennheiser PC 360 (which, lucky me, they were defective too) I am back with the Tangos.

    I wanna say the old mixamp is really good imo.
    The Sennheiser PC 360 are beautiful for music but in games I don’t know if it was because they were defective or I had to get used to their sound (like it happened to me going from TBs X12 to Tritton 720+) but it was harder for me to hear footsteps, I am not quite sure as I just tried them for a few hours.

    Anyway, I am back with the Tangos and I am pretty happy with these, no defects so far, everything works great as I was expecting. This is the best headset for gaming I have tried so far.

    If you can get them for $199 that is a great price or even $249 would be fair imo.
