Established audio manufacturer steps into the world of gaming
Audio-Technica, a company that has been around for over 50 years, has unveiled a new line of gaming headsets this week at CES 2014. Known for designing, manufacturing, and selling audio equipment, this is the first time that the company is offering two headsets that will cater to gamers.
The ATH-AG1 is a closed-back headset that will retail for $249.95 while the ATH-ADG1 is an open-backed device with a more expensive pricetag of $299.95. Both headsets feature a condenser microphone with 100 degree range of motion, self-adjusting 3D wing-support system, 1 meter cable, 3.5mm gold-plated connector, and a USB adapter with a 2 meter long extension cable.
With Audio-Technica’s core double air damping system (D.A.D.S), coupled with 53mm drivers, the ATH-AG1 is expected to provide a deep, resonating bass while offering total isolation. Meanwhile, the ATH-ADG1 has been given a honeycomb aluminum casing and 53mm drivers in conjunction with Bobbin-wound CCAW voice coils, providing a high quality of sound and comfort due to its open-air design.
The ATH-AG1 is available now for purchase while the ATH-ADG1 is currently not available.
