  • Overview



    With specially designed 53 mm drivers, improved 3D Wing Support system and super soft earpads, the ATH-ADG1X open-air gaming headset gives you advanced, high-fidelity sound and a comfortable, secure fit. Plus, the all-metal honeycomb housings keep the headset light and cool, providing an open, natural sound. So you won’t work up a sweat even as you’re cast into the powerfully detailed sonic worlds of today’s FPS (first-person shooter) and other games.

    To keep you even more in control, the ATH-ADG1X comes equipped with a premium gooseneck microphone to handle all your in-game communication. The mic’s supercardioid element is excellent at rejecting unwanted ambient noise, so your voice will come through crystal clear every time. There’s even an included windscreen that slips onto the mic to further combat wind and breath noise, if need be. 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 for greater versatility.

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ADG1x High-Fidelity Gaming Headset:

        I was reading the 1 star review and everything he says is operator error or computer error. I plugged these in to my 4 year old computer and my brand new computer that I just built. After watching a few music videos, playing some Overwatch and World of warcraft and talking to my friends in Mumble I completely disagree with everything he has said. The mute button causes me ZERO issues. Its actually quite nice having the mute button and volume button on the cord instead of fumbling around on the headset. I hear zero "popping".

        The audio quality is AMAZING. These are "gaming" headsets. Not Ipod headphones. They do not have tons and tons of bass. They are for hearing gunshots and footsteps in video games. Which to me the quality is unparalleled.

        This headset fits so comfortably on my head it feels like it has almost no weight. The ear covers completely cover my ears and it feels like they've used a felt like material instead of a cheap faux leather you'd get from another company.

        You're truly paying for quality here. If you take care of this headset it will last you a very long time. Hang it up when you're done.

        Microphone Mute Switch Causes Loud Popping Noise

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ADG1x High-Fidelity Gaming Headset:

            I'm devastated to be returning these. I just got them today. Shame on you AT, who in the world approved this terrible mic mute switch? I guess I will continue to use my ATH-AD700X's with a ModMic 4.0 strapped to the side. The mute switch on the ModMic makes no noise at all, mkay? The issue is all you AT. Man, I can't tell you how disappointed I am. For those reading this who don't yet understand the MAJOR design flaw here, every time you activate or deactivate the mute switch there is a hideously loud popping noise transmitted over the line to anyone or anything listening or recording the signal. AT really dropped the ball on these, Frank ... looking at you, I mean it's your picture on the box fool.

                    thank you for your inquiry. Depending upon how loud you have the audio I could see the microphone picking up audio. Open back headphones do leak audio, so the microphone could pick it up.
