    Designed with the serious gamer in mind, the ATH-PG1 gaming headset delivers wonderfully immersive audio and long-lasting comfort that puts you in the game and lets you stay there as long as you want. Large 44 mm drivers provide powerful, lively sound specially tuned to accentuate all the sonic detail of the gaming environment.

An additional 2.0 m extension cable terminating in two 3.5 mm mini plugs for mic and audio works with either of the 1.2 m cables to provide increased flexibility when gaming on a computer.

    Very versatile, a little bit unconfortable


    A very good headset but there are more reliable options in its price range.

    This is awesome. Used it for everything... Except gaming.


    I love these headphones, as headphones, but as far as headphones go they could be better. (Like the ATH-M50's) The mic is awesome! I can hear all the little sounds my mouth makes. (Which is not good if you're a heavy breather, heh heh) The duel cords is not only NOT confusing (for me,) but I also appreciate it, to be able to use outdoors! I clicked the "cord too short" option only because I'm 6'5" and it could be an inch or two longer. If you're average height you should be fine. But I love how the cord isn't ridiculously long like the M50's, so I can use it outside of my home without looking obnoxious. Also... I don't know if it's my specific pair, or what, but... my Mute button doesn't seem to work. Like... at all. So beware if you love your mute buttons. My least favorite part about these headphones is the lack of console support... I got these for the main purpose of gaming, but it seems you can only use it for PC, and PS4 (which I don't have, yet) so you can see how limited I feel when I get gaming headphones and cant use it for gaming, right? I mean... I suppose I could use it with my 3DS, but... Theres not many games that support chat on there, if any at all! What I HAVE been using it for is regular headphones, and also with Skyping with my friends on my iPhone. (And also Karaoke) but... All that stuff os on my iPhone... So... Still not much versatility. As much as that annoys me, I genuinely enjoy these headphones, overall. Would recommend. I just really wish they weren't as expensive as they are.

    Great sound period!


    I have been using these headphones for about a month now and they sound wonderful. I use them when I am gaming on my PC, watching Netflix or games on my PS4, and also listening to music on my MP3 player. They sound clear and all levels of bass, mids, and highs are harmonized really well. When I am playing COD Advanced Warfare, I can hear more bullets around me and footsteps as well. I have not used the Boom MIC that comes with the PG1 yet, but I have been complimented on the clarity of my voice when I use my smartphone and the supplied smartphone cable that comes with the PG1. I also own the ATH M50x headphones and comparing the two... I would say the PG1 has a wider soundstage and does let in more exterior sound. The ATH M50x is more concentrated and isolating compared to the PG1. It is well worth the money and I would buy it again.
