                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:

                  These phones sit down around the bottom of my face, so the bars run across the top of my head. Not like I expected - I thought they would sit on the arms at the side of my head instead, but the arms are way to floppy to do that. Is there some way to adjust them so they sit properly over my ears instead of mostly on my jowl?

                    A:

                    The ATH-ADG1 Gaming Headset does not require a specific driver. If you are using the USB DAC, it should automatically use the generic USB Audio CODEC which is part of a computers operating system.

                    The mute button is just a mechanical push to mute type button. It does not require a driver or a specific setting to operate.

                    The ATH-ADG1 are stereo headphones and additional DSP processing such as surround sound would be via your source.

                • Q:

                  Are these fully over-ear or on-ear and what is the diameter of the inner ear cup, i.e. what is the maximum ear size these can handle before the cup hits the upper/lower ear?

                  I am asking this question as I have had other headphones from your range which have been too tight around my ears and forced the top of my ear against my glasses leading to constant discomfort.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. Yes they are. The new XB1 controllers have a standard 3.5mm TRRS jack and some of the new XB headsets use the same TRRS now
