Audio-Technica is showcasing its ATH-G1WL wireless and ATH-G1 premium gaming headsets at CES 2021 (January 11 – 14, 2021). Taking design inspiration from the company’s iconic ATH-M50x professional studio headphones, the headsets boast powerful audio reproduction as well as comfort and convenience. Their lightweight design allow both esports players and casual gamers to enjoy a long gaming session in extreme comfort.
The wired ATH-G1 (SRP: US$169.00) is compatible with PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and any platform with a 3.5 mm headset connector. Its specially-tuned large-diameter 45mm drivers bring precise, clear studio-quality sound to game audio, while its 1,300mW input capacity takes full advantage of dedicated sound cards to deliver a full-force gaming experience.
Engineered for accurate voice communication and command, the ATH-G1's detachable microphone will not pick up distractions, like keyboards or ambient noise, with its hyper-cardioid directionality. The mic’s detachable design also enables the headset to be transformed into on the-go headphones. The 6.6’ cable’s inline remote features volume and mute controls and a Y type stereo headset cable is also included.
Equipped with the same 45mm drivers and detachable microphone as the ATH-G1, with the added flexibility of stable, low-latency 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, the ATH-G1WL (SRP: US$249.00) also adds virtual surround sound, for an even more immersive 3D audio gaming experience. With 15 hours of battery life, the headset will last through the longest gaming sessions – but it will also work while charging. It features controls for surround sound, volume and mute on the earcup.
The ATH-G1WL is compatible with laptops and PCs via its wireless USB Type A transceiver. A pair of extra earpads is in the box for your future replacement.
