Astro is known as a professional brand that has been developing gaming headsets for more than ten years. They specialize more on eSports equipment which is why they put a lot of effort into creating solid, durable, yet light headsets for all gamers around. They ensure comfort despite long hours of continuous use to prevent gamers like you from feeling head pressure, over time. Astro recently released a new Legend of Zelda themed A10 headset and it looks amazing.
This A10 collection of headsets are not really new products, they’ve actually been in the market for ages, and this is all for a good reason – the quality and form that their products have, along with a very reasonable price, makes them hard to beat, thus, keeps them on their top spot in the market.
Now what makes the Astro A10 Gaming Headset for Nintendo Switch really impressive is that it has all the features a gamer’s headset should have. But it also adds a spin of a Zelda-theme to it which makes it an even better device. Though it may appear simple, the gold on black just gives off a nice, elegant appearance to it without neglecting the aesthetics, quality, and performance.
Today, we’re going to talk about the Astro A10 Gaming Headset for Nintendo Switch, and we actually have the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Edition. We’re going to give you details about its specifications, features, how well it performed, and if it’s something that we’d recommend to gamers like you.
Now without further ado, let’s first check out what’s inside the box of this A10 gaming headset from Astro.
Astro A10 Zelda Breath of the Wild Review – What’s in the Box?
Upon receiving our A10 Gaming Headset for the Nintendo Switch, we noticed that its package features a cool-looking symbol on the side. It appears like a golden eye with an Aztech-like design.
In front, you will see an image of the device itself, the name of the device, and the company’s name at the lower right portion of it. The upper right corner of the box displays the name Zelda to mark its edition. On the sides, you will find the Sheikah symbol, the name of the series, while at the back are other details like the specifications and features of the device.
When you open the package, you’ll see that the headset is fixed in place. The company ensured that the device and the other accessories included in the box are all segregated and kept in one place. This is to keep any parts from getting damaged while in transit.
Included in the box is the user manual, a couple of cables like the exclusive chat cable for the Nintendo Switch, and a 1.2m A10 volume cable. Of course, you’ll also find the device itself.
Astro A10 Zelda Breath of the Wild Review
The theme of the entire headset is from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All the iconography present on the headphones are from the game. On the right ear, you will find the “Z” of Zelda together with the Master Sword behind it. On the left ear, you will find the symbol of Sheikah. This is also where the microphone is placed.
Each of the ear cups are padded with foam just like all of the headphones from Astro’s A series. Its inner space is black unlike most headphone, and it also has a unique color. The part where the headband meets the cups, you will see the Wingcrest on both sides. These also have the Tri-Force.
Another great feature is the adjustable headband. Aside from being able to change its size, the design on this part is really cool. When you pull the headband up, you will see more of the Sheikah symbols. You will also see some gold marks which show how far you’ve taken the headband up. As for the microphone, this is completely black which we think is fine so it wouldn’t be too much of a distraction when we play games.
To make the headset work for Switch, it comes with a Switch adaptor so you can plug it to the console and your phone. Without the adapter, you can plug it directly to your other devices as long as these have the standard 3.5-millimeter jack.
With the Astro Audio, the A10 is precisely tuned to make your gaming experience more intense. This allows you to experience the world of Hyrule in your living room. Its top-notch materials are lightweight and flexible, allowing the headset to be comfortable when worn even for long gaming hours. Its flip to mute microphone is a great feature that allows you to be in command of your game and communication.
The headset comes with a 20 to 20,000 hz frequency response and a distortion rate of < 3% at 1 kHz. It comes with a characteristic SPL of 104dB + / – 3db 1kHz.
For its microphone, it has a 6.0-millimeter uni-directional mic with a DC impedance of 32 ohms. Headband pressure is about 4.5N while it comes an over-ear piece – an aspect that is often wanted by a lot of users, especially gamers.
The headset weighs a total of 346 grams without the cable. Its connections include the 3.5 millimeter 5-pole jack, plus drivers that are made from 49 millimeters Neodymium Magnets.
The A10 Gaming Headset for Nintendo Switch features a durable steel headband. This headband is encased in a rubberized cover that is resistant against damage. It is also strong yet lightweight which allows for durability and comfort. It also comes with a heavy-duty cable system that is detachable.

This gaming headset from Astro is one of the best that I’ve used, and with its price range, it really does make things a whole lot better.

In games, movies, and music, the A10 is consistent in delivering solid audio with clarity and detail.
This headset also delivers rich bass, just like every pair of Astro headphones that offer heavy bass tunes. In music, we think that this sounds really good and we absolutely loved it when we tried it for games. The sounds of explosions had more impact with these headphones compared to other headsets in the same price range.
Now let’s talk about the microphone which is one of A10’s strongest feature. Usually, this is our complaint when it comes to headsets, but this one was totally loud and clear.

Astro wanted to pay tribute to The Legend of Zelda by creating a headset designed after the game. Since they also wanted to build an affordable product for Nintendo Switch players. In fact, the A10 is one of the best headsets you can get at its price. Its audio is perfect and we didn’t feel any discomfort after long hours of use.
Although it took some time for Astro to release this headset, it was definitely worth the wait.
