    ATH-AG1 High-Fidelity Gaming Headset 4.5 5 2 2
    The best example of perfection If you want the best gaming headset on the market think of Audio Technica once and for all. I've tried many other brands of headphones and by far the ATH-AG1 surpass all other cans on the market! April 30, 2015
    Comfortable with great sound you expect from AT but with a few adjustments needed We got these sent to my work and my supervisor told em to take them home and try them out. The self adjusting fit is nice but it sits a bit low on my head. It feels like my ears are holding up the headset from the inside because the padding will rest on them. If you move your head around a lot or get worked up while you play these will slide around. That being said once you get it to sit just right these are one of the more comfortable pair of headphones I have ever wore. I've been gaming for a long time and have worked in radio and they are very comfortable. I love the USB DAC but the only downfall is that the 2 m extension cannot be used with it. For PC gamers whose tower is on the other side of your desk this can be frustrating. If you don't have USB on the top of your tower you will not be able to use the DAC. The USB DAC is an obvious PC gaming accessory so I'm not sure why they would not include a longer cable or extension to be used with it. Overall great gaming headset. January 20, 2015

    Surround Sound and Mic Monitoring

    I was wondering if this headset uses or is capable of surround sound and/or microphone monitoring (the ability to hear your voice reflected by the microphone without software listening).

    Answer: 
    This headset like many gaming headsets will pan the audio as the game deems necessary. It's only two speakers so the best it can do is L R.

    If you have Windows you can always listen to your mic by going to control panel > sound > recording devices then double click on your mic go to listen and select listen to this device. You will listen to it until you uncheck that box.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The headphone is a stereo left right headphone. Your program material would have to provide some type of surround emulation to hear in surround sound. The microphone is not heard in the headphone unless it is configured for monitoring within your software.

    How good is sound isolation?

    My son is asking for a Gaming Headset with ANC so he wont be bothered by his brother playing Xbox ONE in the same room while he is on the Gaming PC. How well will these block external sound sources?

    Answer: 
    They do a decent job of cutting out noise but if the TV is up loud they probably wont cut it. This headset is great but it is not designed to be a noise isolation or cancelling solution.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The headphone does not have active circuitry to cancel noise, although they do provide a degree of passive isolation.

    Will this work with the Xbox One?

    This product says it works with PS4... The Xbox One's headset adapter is being released in early march, and says it supports any 3.5 mm headset, but the Xbox One is not listed here as a compatible system. So I'm curious if this will work with the adapter that is being released.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    At this point, the ATH-ADG1 and ATH-AG1 are not compatible with the XBOX and XBOX ONE.

    However, XBOX announced that they will be releasing an accessory called the "Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter" some time this year (2014). When that product is available, Audio-Technica has plans to re-test the above gaming headsets to re-check for compatibility with XBOX ONE. When the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter is available, please wait for at least a few months after the product has been released to contact Audio-Technica United States, so that proper testing can be completed.
