Just to clear things up, I am a 20 year old gamer and small YouTuber who formerly played Modern Warfare 2 competitively on console, to playing Counter Strike: Global Offensive on PC. I still play on BOTH platforms, so when it comes to making a choice in a headset, I need them to fill those two roles in one. As a long-time gamer, I've been through A LOT of headphones. Ranging from TurtleBeach (back in the ol' 360 days), Tritton, ASTRO, Steelseries, HyperX & now finally Audio Technica. I've owned a pair of ATH-M50x's, another well known (and probably best) set of headphones you can get for your money, which is also made by Audio Technica. These were perfect for me for gaming on PC but sadly, I had no way of recording my microphone for my friends to hear me, so I couldn't use it for console gaming. Here comes the saving grace, the ATH-PG1's. They are a SUPER lightweight and extremely comfortable, even better than the HyperX Cloud II's that I used to own (which was marketed as "the most comfortable gaming headset"). The sound is not on par as the M50x's, but a little less in the bass department, which isn't a bad thing at all (more on that later). The sound overall trumps all the previous "gaming" headsets that I've owned. The microphone quality is EXCELLENT. Paired this with an ASTRO Mixamp and you're golden. The microphone is warm, providing a lot of bass response for such a little condenser. It's not just great for talking with your friends over Discord or Xbox Live, but also a great choice for voice overs and commentaries. This all seems too good to be true, and it's true, believe me. However, there are two small problems that you must know before purchasing this headset.
For one, there is very little clamping force. For some people who wear glasses or have larger heads, this is great. But it can cause some sound to leak and sometimes pick up into your microphone when gaming at high volumes. Then again I have never yet to run into a headset that DOESN'T leak into the mic at high volumes, because that's pretty much unavoidable due to the mic being so close to the sound source. The low clamping force can also be an issue with the slight lack of bass that I mentioned earlier. It's not a bad thing to have a lack of bass because when you're gaming, you need to focus on footsteps and positional ques, which are mostly in the mid to high ranges. So I don't know if this is meant as a mistake or for the gamer to have an advantage when playing. Either way, these two issues you should take with a grain of salt. Because written out like this, it sounds like a make or break issue. But in practice, it's hardly an issue at all.
In conclusion, out of all the headsets I bought, this is hands down. THE BEST you can get for under $200. If you want to know the headsets I went through (in order), here they are
TurtleBeach X11's, Titton AX720's, Tritton Detonators, ASTRO A30's, Steelseries Siberia V2's, ASTRO A40's (2009 Edition), Steelseries Siberia Elite's, HyperX Cloud II's & the ASTRO A40's (2011 Edition)
Yeah, that's a lot of wasted money up there^^
Get these headphones as soon as possible. These have the best mic & audio quality you can get in an all-in-one headset under $200.
PS: If you want to know what the microphone sounds like, my unboxing video and video review is commentated entirely from that microphone. Thanks for reading! The YouTube Channel is called LLIMIT GAMING
Compared to the ADG1, they are not as clear and don't sound as good, but that's to be expected considering the price difference. However, I find them to be far more comfortable, especially for long sessions. Part of that has to do with the large ear cup design of the ADG1, which tended to sit on the tops of my ears rather than around them. The microphone for both sets is excellent and people will have no problems hearing you.
The sound quality in these was pretty good, but I did notice some crackling when moving around (with either cable) that others have commented on. Since both the mic cable and non-mic cables are proprietary this seems like a huge gamble as a customer. Not to mention a really poor and predatory design. I'll be returning these ASAP. Good product, just poorly realized...Not 'Premium'.
-Sound great when sitting still
-All the accessories you'd need
-Crackle when moving around
-Price to quality and longevity
They are light, comfortable and the microfiber ear cushions are super comfortable.
The swappable cables are great. Just pop out the boom microphone attachment and insert the headphone cord in an instant.
The sound quality is great. I'm not a super audio snob, but these headphones certainly sound better than the Beats Pro phones I had.
As far as I can tell the boom microphone sounds great.
