About the Astro HDMI Adapter for PlayStation® 5

Add optical digital output to your PS5

If you've managed to pick up a PS5, you'll notice it doesn't have an optical connection. That poses a problem for folks looking to take full advantage of their high-quality Astro headphones. Without an optical digital audio connection, you won't have the ability to adjust the game/chat balance with Astro's MixAmp. This makes life difficult if you've invested in a pair of A40s with the outboard MixAmp or the A50s that have it built in. On top of losing game/chat mixing, the A50s also lose the enhanced sound directionality of Dolby® audio decoding.

Fortunately, there's a way around this hurdle. Astro's HDMI Adapter lets you pass your HDMI connection from the PS5 to your TV while splitting the audio signal off via an optical output. You can then link up the optical connection to your headphone system, business as usual, and go back to enjoying your game sound at their best.
