I'd say they sound a bit better Tha tbe plats but the lack of bass is kind of a killer lol.
The Astros A50s still are head and shoulders better than both IMO.
I've been on the quest for a decent headset. Been going through reviews on sites, youtube, you name it. There never seems to be one that ticks all the boxes from comfort, to build quality, to sound quality and mic quality.
I stayed away from the Sony as so many complained about the headset band snapping. The Gold's. I had read about the Platinum lacking in bass. Read about the Astro A50 and again, too many complained it was far too bass-y in between the poor mic.
The Platinum looks really nice but I like bass but not too much bass. Despise boy racer bass that so many seem to crave.
I think I'm going to go for the Steelseries Siberia 800 since it has the bass for the presets and all the EQ adjustments. Or flat profile. Currently have the Turtle Beach 520 Stealth. It has a good mic but I feel the headphones are too bass-y/thundery as I'm stuck with garbage presets. Bass boost, bass and treble boost, voice boost or natural sound.
Plus I like the fact you can pop out batteries on the Siberia 800 while one is always on charge.
The Tritton Katana sounded good with it being HDMI but lots of complaints of sound cutting in and out. So many issues with so many headsets to poor support. :/
