The Astro A30 headset is for the rich or insane

How much are you willing to spend on a so-called portable gaming headset? $50? $100? How about $150? Anyone? What if I told you that it would also work with your computer as well as your iPhone, PSP, and Xbox Live account? Still no one? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

The Astro A30 is marketed to portable gamers. The thought here is that these folks probably want the very best audio on the go and won’t mind touting around large cans with their small PSPgo. I get that.

But they cost a whopping $149, which is expensive for a standard issue gaming headset that would never leave your desk. These, however, come with all sorts of cables and adapters so they’ll work on every platform. I guess it’s up to you and your bank account if you get this set, although I would probably wait until some reviews appear.
