Computer accessory company Logitech announced today that it's acquiring Astro Gaming, a popular console gaming headset maker, for $85 million in cash. For now, it sounds like Logitech G will stay focused on PC peripherals, while Astro will remain a console-first brand.
In this regard, when did Logitech buy Astro?
Logitech first announced its agreement to acquire ASTRO in July 2017, as the Company invests in an adjacent gaming market — the console gaming market.
Subsequently, question is, is Astro a good brand? Taken on its own, the Astro A10 is a fantastic gaming headset value. For $60, you get great sound, a durable design, a solid microphone and a mostly cozy set of cans. However, Astro's wallet-friendly headset can get a little too tight, and it has some serious competition in the sub-$60 price range.
Regarding this, who bought Astro?
