ASTRO is pleased to announced the A1 Pro Gaming Headset and Mixamp for the Sega Genesis.

Add in the  6-channel stereo ASTRO Gaming Surround sound (AGS) for total audio immersion!

  • 16-Bit Audio Quality – Hear every detail, from ring pickups to digitized voices.
  • Stylish and Comfortable – Perfectly compliments your SEGA Genesis gaming console.  Unmatched comfort designed for extended gaming sessions.

  • Premium ASTRO Construction – Made of our real plastic that’s nice and shiny too.

The headset has already been in the hands of several reviewers, and they’re excited (to say the least). I’m getting ready to start digging through my boxes and looking for my Genesis, and RF adapter. I can’t wait to play Sonic 2 and Toejam and Earl with this awesome headset!

“Joe Montana football never sounded so real.  And being able to let my NBA Jam opponent know what I thought of his weak game over Xband is revolutionary.”

— Electronic Gaming Monthly, August 1995

“The gold standard of Genesis headsets.  The surround sound effects Sonic the Hedgehog will have you looking over your shoulder for Dr. Robotnik.”

— Next Generation, June 1995

“Holy shit it was like Alladin was right there in the room with us.  And with Mortal Kombat you can literally hear every bone breaking.”

— Gamefan, July 1995
