When I was doing some searching about something else, I came across some comments to the effect that MLE's review of the A50's was flawed because there was a firmware update to fix the bass or something. Is that the case, or was I misreading it? The A50 is available at $200 for a refurb and I'm curious if the value proposition gets better at that price point, especially if the SQ is better than what MLE heard.
$200 for a wireless mixamp and a decent headset is not a bad deal. I'm still not too keen on the wire running across the room for my current setup and I'm still tempted by the wireless of the A50 and the PLYR1. They're both about the same price now (if you're into refurb, which I am).
Just remember that the A50's wireless receiver is built into the headset so you won't be able to use the Mixamp with other headphones, only the Astros. For me that'd be a deal breaker and as such I've never considered the A50.
