"DICE's Battlefield 4 is one of the few games today that mixes an incredibly diverse variety of highly immersive and critically important in-game sound effects and audio cues with the need for crystal clear voice communication. Battlefield 4's need for spatial audio clarity is also second to none – hearing the People's Liberation Army soldiers before they come around a corner, an incoming airstrike before it hits or the heavy armour before it crests a hill is paramount to success in Battlefield 4," said Aron Drayer, Director of Marketing for ASTRO Gaming. "Our new ASTRO Gaming A50 Battlefield 4TM Edition was designed from the ground up to handle everything Battlefield 4 can throw at you -- from cutting edge KleerNetTM wireless to Dolby Surround Sound 7.1 to Game-to-Voice audio balance controls to custom EQ modes designed by DICE."
