Highlights of the Audio-Technica products on exhibit at PAX West 2019 include the following:

Taking design inspiration from the company’s industry-standard ATH-M50x pro audio headphones, Audio-Technica’s new ATH-G1WL wireless and ATH-G1 gaming headsets deliver powerful, spacious audio quality and crystal-clear in-game voice communication. Both headsets’ lightweight design allow gamers to enjoy even long playing sessions in total comfort.

The wired ATH-G1 (SRP: US$169.00) is compatible with computers, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and any platform with a 3.5 mm headset connector. It features specially tuned large-diameter 45 mm drivers to bring studio-quality sound to game audio. Its highly directional detachable boom mic delivers exceptional voice clarity while rejecting ambient noise and keyboard clicks.

The wireless ATH-G1WL (SRP: $249.00) adds stable, lag-free wireless connectivity, a long 15 hours of battery life and a virtual surround sound function for an even more immersive 3D audio gaming experience. Its wireless USB transceiver ensures compatibility with computers.

The premium ATH-AG1X closed-back and ATH-ADG1X open-back high-fidelity gaming headsets (SRP: US$299.00 each) deliver a spacious sonic environment that draws participants completely into the playing field. The headsets feature 53 mm large-diameter drivers for impactful sound and include a gooseneck microphone with volume control.

The BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset (US$199.00) was developed for professional use, yet its natural, focused audio reproduction, noise-isolating closed-back design, high-output gooseneck-mounted dynamic microphone and rugged design make it ideal for gaming as well.

Now anyone can convert their favorite headphones into a full-fledged gaming headset, thanks to Audio-Technica’s ATGM2 detachable boom microphone (US$79.00), which easily attaches to any headphones and adjusts for optimal positioning.
