With over 50 years of audio experience to call on, Japans #1 headphone brand is now on a quest to deliver pro gamers their go-to headphone.  With the new AG1 and ADG1, Audio-Technica have utilized the core elements of their premium audio headphones and re-imagined them for professional and longtime gamers.


Released world-wide these units have not only been co-developed with the Australian branch of Audio-Technica, but with gamers and game developers as well. The development discussions inevitably lead to audio quality as being priority one, as modern gaming now incorporates all mediums of sound including speech, soundtrack and sound effects.  These three elements make the demands for gamer headphones something unique and although surround sound, 7.1, 3D and special effects are all fascinating to listen to, they are also ultimately confusing and inaccurate and detract from the precise and reliable soundstage that pro gamers require.


“We are already selling tons of our Hi-Fi and studio headphones to gamers all over the world, so we couldn’t ignore the need for a multi-platform gaming headset” said National Brand Manager Wesley von Grabill. “We listened to what gamers loved about these models and used them as a foundation for the AG1 and ADG1. What we ended up with were headsets that combine unparalleled comfort, a premium microphone and Audio-Technica’s legendary sound quality. We believe we are now releasing the best gamer headphones in the world.” 


The ATH-AG1 (closed-back) and ATH-ADG1 (open-back) both have a unique look and feel that incorporates sophisticated driver technology and superior components.  Both use huge 53mm drivers which deliver exceptional power handling and very high SPL, but most critically premium audio quality, incredibly accurate sound positioning and mastering quality detail.


As one of the world’s largest microphone manufacturers, Audio-Technica are no stranger to clear, precise audio capture and selected a high quality unidirectional condenser unit mounted on a gooseneck which can swivel through 100⁰.


A custom version of Audio-Technica’s unique wing support spreads the headband load evenly and offers extreme comfort for extended sessions.  Connectivity is via a fixed 1mtr, 4-pole mini-jack output cable for iPhone/Smartphone use, a 2mtr extension cable with 2 x mini-jack connectors for direct PC connection plus a USB DAC/Pre-Amp for added flexibility and increased performance.
