While the Astro A50 headset can be a great gaming headset for gamers, it does have its issues.
Sometimes, the Astro A50 stops working without any apparent reason. This is a common problem that you’ll find on Reddit or online forums.

Step-by-step Astro A50 reset process
It’s almost impossible to find steps to reset Astro A50s online. After searching forums and articles on YouTube, I finally found the answer.
Before we begin, A hard reboot like this will wipe any custom presets that you have saved to your headphones.
Although it isn’t ideal, this is something you’re willing to do. I would like to take a screen shot of your presets before proceeding.
Now, place your Astro A50s onto the charging station. Move them around until they charge.
To turn the headphones ON, press the Power button once the dock has charged. Next, remove the headphones from your charging dock.
Next, Locate Dolby On/Source audio button.
Find the Game side of your Game/Voice balance.
Locate the buttons and simultaneously press them for about 15 seconds.
After is expired, place your Astro A50s in the charging dock. Now your headphones should work!
