Switch Astro A10 Zelda Headset Announced


ASTRO Gaming has today revealed an all new Astro A10 Zelda headset, as well as announcing there are more Nintendo themed A10 headsets in the works made specifically for Nintendo Switch. The new A10 headset will also be previewed during E3 2018.

Rocket Chainsaw covered the launch of the original A10 in July last year. We also reviewed the original Astro A10 headset giving it 4 stars and saying, “if you’re looking at getting a new gaming headset, but baulk at paying the $200+ required for most of the well-known brands, the Astro A10s are a fantastic option.

The new Astro A10 Zelda headset is exclusively based on the Nintendo Switch and Wii U critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. Featuring a slick black design with gold logos and a gold ring around the ears, the headset is made with the Nintendo Switch chat in mind. It also looks like other colours will be available, as per the image below.

With our new wired headset for the Nintendo Switch, we celebrate the iconic gaming experience that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild delivers to a new generation of gamers,” said Cris Lee, Head of Licensing & Partnerships at ASTRO Gaming. “We worked closely with Nintendo to create a stylish, uncompromising audio experience, with a special new chat adapter designed specifically for the Nintendo Switch. With the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app, players can chat with their friends while playing compatible games at home or on the go.
