    Astro Gaming sucks balls....

    Just a heads up, if you're thinking of ordering some Astros for use with your PS4, do it ASAP. By the time they ship these fucking things to you after you order, you'll be lucky to get them by the time the PS5 launches. Seriously. I placed my order with them almost a week ago and my BF4 A50s STILL haven't shipped,despite the order page saying I'd have these on Friday. Anyone get a headset during their Black Friday sale that has actually SHIPPED? I figured since Skull Candy bought them, their service would be better. Nope.

    So basically you bought a headset from Astro Gaming and they have not shipped your item yet. It wasn't until the last sentence where I finally understood what the hell you were going on about lol

    Slightly off-topic but slightly not at the same time,
    but what cheap decent headset would anyone be able to recommend for use with the PS4? I'm currently using my PX21's which I've had for my PS3 for ages, however it can only be set up a certain way and when you set all audio to come through them it renders the 'GAME' volume control useless as both game chat and game audio come through the 'CHAT' volume control, not good whilst playing with people with quiet mic's when they're being drowned out with the sound of gunfire.

    I'm sure Best Buy would have price matched Astro's sale if they had the A50's in stock.

    I'm sure quite a few other people also took advantage of their black friday sale. So I would assume they are swamped and working as fast as they can.
    What's the point in having an Internet connection if you're not using it to look up weird, ****ed-up pictures of dirty sex you'll never have yourself?

    Yep. Basic common sense involved. A sale goes on, a lot get ordered, it takes time to fulfill those orders.

    Not sure if there's a Best Buy and your area but the best buys here in Las Vegas always have A50s and A40s and stock.

    My experience with the Astro kids is that they're a great bunch and very helpful and friendly. I mean, yeah, they did design the Xbox 360 game console and space heater, but I can forgive them that gaffe, and otherwise I bet they're just swamped with orders. Unless they've really, really changed over there, they just got overwhelmed. They don't hate you.

    Understood, but I was told I would have these on Friday. Instead they sat in "pending shipment" status for 3 days, and won't be here until next week. I even paid extra to get them here faster.

    I'd be frustrated at some point as well, but also understanding that there can always be delays when something like this happens. It's a little give and take.

    Skull Candy are some of the worst headphones on the market, I feel sorry for peeps that get suckered into a cool name like Skull Candy. To be completely honest, that company never should have made it to fame at all.

    PS4 has little to no competition.

    Skull Candy bought Astro out as you know, but apparently the Astro quality is still intact. And so is their shit customer service. Anyway, I should have them in my hands next Thursday.
