  • 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:

      Extremely poor value for the money, bass is no where near my old sony headphones, head pillow latches look and feel very flimsy, volume knob highly sensitive.

      If you like these, make sure you test them for at least 30 minutes before you buy them.

          (Sorry for my bad English i'm french)

          Best Sound Quality i ever had !

          I used it for long sessions of gaming (4-5hours) and i haven't pressure on my head or something like that !

          Microphone is one of the best! I have the same voice in a mic as in real life (that's pretty awsome)

          But i have a cons :/

          Is missing a sound card with dolby digital, but you can still buying it for 50-60$

          (Personally i use a Xonar U7 in a 24bits 192KHz) My ears is in paradise, literally

            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.

            9.5/10

                Thank you for your inquiry. I am not sure. This headset has a 4 pole (TRRS) connector. If your controller has this type of input it may.

                A:

                Thank you for your inquiry. They only come in the grey / red color combination. Open back verses closed back is subjective. Closed back provide more isolation while open back are more spacious.

            • Q:

              I would like to know if parts are available for this headset. I have the gold trimmed verison. WOrks and sounds great...but the left head suspension piece broke. one of the tabs contained in the foam cusion portion failed. The piece attached to the headphone is ok. Now it is painful to wear them.

              would be a shame if a 300$ headphone is useless due to a 50 cent part.
