  • Overview

    Featuring newly designed 53 mm drivers with Audio-Technica’s double air damping system (D.A.D.S.), the ATH-AG1X high-fidelity gaming headset gives you an incredibly immersive gaming experience with sharp, detailed audio and deep, resonating bass. The headset also boasts an improved 3D Wing Support system and extremely soft earpads for a comfortable, secure fit that lets you happily game on for hours.

    The ATH-AG1X also comes equipped with a premium gooseneck microphone to handle your in-game communication. The mic’s supercardioid element is excellent at rejecting unwanted ambient noise, so your voice will come through crystal clear all the time. There’s even an included windscreen that slips onto the mic to further combat wind and breath noise, if need be. For additional control and convenience, the headset’s 1.2 m (3.9') cable includes a simple volume/locking mute switch for easy one-hand operation, and comes with a 2.0 m (6.6') extension cable.

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-AG1x High-Fidelity Gaming Headset:

      Man, I have never heard this quality before, everything is sharp but doesn't make your ears tense. The clearest sounds I have ever heard no doubt. Love the wings to fit my head, no adjusting, it just fits right every time. Mic is great, friends have commented on how much better I sound online in terms of clarity and no more ambient noise. The only con is that it just isn't loud enough. I want something just a bit more skull shaking and bass. I want to feel it a bit more.

      Overall still easily the best gaming headset I've ever had.

      For the price I would like something to put them on, maybe a stand or something made from the same kind of material as the head bands.

        Will this work with say an Astro mix amp, or something that enables Dolby Digital 7.1 virtual surround?

          Thank you for your inquiry. The headphones are stereo headphones. You may need to run this past the manufacturer of the amp.

        Will this work with the Xbox 360 or do I have to get a pin size converter thing

          Unfortunately, this headset will work with XBOX ONE (not the 360). To get the headset to work with an XBOX ONE, you must first purchase the stereo adapter from xbox.com

      • Q:

        Hello, my name is Dakota.

        I have a few questions about the ATH-AG1x.

        I am wondering when the ATH-AG1x will be out. I haven't seen anything on it except for what's on the website and I've heard amazing things about audio-Technica.

        I am also curious what are the major changes from the AG1 and the AG1x.

        I've never had an Audio Technica product but bery interested in multiple.

        Thank you for your time.

        Sincerely,

        Dakota Wise

        PS. Are there any stores in the Tacoma or Seattle area where I can try high fidelity Audio Technica products? Such as the ATH-AG1.

          The tentative release date is sometime between March and April. However, tentative release dates are subject to change. Still, the best and quickest way to find out whether or when it will be available in the United States is to sign up for the ATUS eNews letter, which can be done at www.audio-technica.com. The link to sign up for the news letter is located on the lower right-hand side of our homepage, next to the social media links.
