Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-ADG1 High-Fidelity Gaming Headset:
Hey, I'm summit1g, the popular twitch streamer/GT-R enthusiast. This headset is a great alternative to any other headset on the market for particularly large headed individuals. The arc on the top of the headset really assists me in making my head look more like the planet it could become. 1G's up in the chat.

Q:So if im using the OPEN back gaming headset in a crowded room with about 5 people while im playing games and theyre all talking, will i have trouble hearing my game? if so, will the CLOSED backed headset help this issue? Also i was wondering if i did get the CLOSED back headset is there any way i can change the ear pads to the soft cushiony ones the OPEN back headset has? thanks
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Closed back headphones will offer more passive noise isolation. we do not provide other ear pads for this headphone.
A:I don't usually answer my own questions....
A:Hope you got this working
A:Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at email@example.com for assistance with this.
Q:Can I use these headphones to have a conversation on my iphone, or only to listen to music? Do they require any special adapter for conversation?
A:Yes. I have an Iphone 4 and the headphones work great together. I have received compliments on the improved sound quality of my voice while using the supplied inline mic cable. I also use these headphones to listen to music on my computer and MP3 player. I don't need any special adapter for any of it, I just used the supplied cables.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. these will not work with an iphone.
Q:Exactly how audible are the open back version compared to the close back version for those around you?
A:Thank you for you inquiry. There will be sound leakage with open back headphones, although the amount of passive isolation provided by closed back headphones is not something that we measure.
Q:Do these have the same or similar sound stage as the AD700x?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The sound would be very similar, if not identical.
Q:Condenser or Dynamic?
A:Both the ATH-ADG1 and ATH-AG1 feature a Condenser microphone.
A:According to the specs page, it is a condenser. I'm not versed enough in the different microphone types. Is that good or bad or neither?
Q:im trying to find a place to buy these
A:I don't think they've been released in the US, yet. I think they'll be available here when they are released:
Q:Will this work with the ps3/ps4?
A:While I don't own a pair -yet- they're not on sale in the States, I have been using a pair of ATH-AD700 headphones for several years with an Astro Mixamp. I can speak to the comfort as these share the same design. They are the most comfortable headphones I have worn. I can play for hours and I don't think about them once. Conversely, the Astro A40 cans that I own have a more traditional headphone support strap and they get uncomfortable rather quickly. The weight of those headphones ends up being concentrated on the center of the strap and therefore at one point on the top of your head. The AT wing design distributes the weight to both sides evenly and there is no pressure felt on your head.
Q:When talking into the headset are you able to hear yourself as if your having a normal conversation?
A:I don't think so, but I'm not sure. But because this is an open style headphone you will be able to hear yourself better than with closed headphones. An open style headphone doesn't isolate the sound.
