This year at PAX West there was a new sound in the building. Audio-Technica came to PAX West with their new high quality gaming headsets. Audio-Technica made a lot of noise on the 6th floor with their ATH-AG1X and ATH-ADG1X High-Fidelity Gaming Headsets. Audio-Technica is known for their high quality headsets, but its time to travel into the gaming world.
Both the ATH-AG1X and ATH-ADG1X headsets utilize core elements of the company’s audiophile models to deliver an immersive sonic experience with exceptional dynamics and clarity, and a realistic soundstage that draws listeners completely into the gaming environment. Both include a built-in microphone with windscreen along with additional gaming-specific features.
The ATH-AG1X and ATH-ADG1X feature all-new premium large-diameter 53 mm drivers to deliver superlative reproduction of speech, special effects and soundtracks, with high-power handling and volume, deep bass and superior midrange and treble definition. The closed-back ATH-AG1X employs Audio-Technica’s exclusive Double Air Damping System, which uses a main air chamber that houses the driver plus an additional chamber that controls and focuses the airflow produced by the driver, for expanding and controlling its bass output. For listeners who prefer an open-air design, the ATH-ADG1X offers spacious yet impactful sound coupled with lightweight comfort.
Both headsets have a gooseneck condenser microphone with a supercardioid element that is exceptional at rejecting unwanted ambient noise, to deliver clear and intelligible in-game voice communication. The ATH-AG1X and ATH-ADG1X are supplied with a windscreen to further combat wind and breath noise. The gooseneck mic swivels over a 100-degree path, and new features include a simple volume control and integrated locking mute switch to enable one-hand operation.
