Audio Technica headphones are designed to provide an immersive audio experience for gaming. They feature large drivers that produce clear sound, and a closed-back design that blocks out external noise.
This makes them ideal for gaming in noisy environments, or for players who want to concentrate on the game without distractions. The headphones are also comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and come with a detachable microphone for chatting with teammates.
20 Best Audio Technica Headphones For Gaming
1. Audio-Technica – ATH-G1 Premium Gaming Headset
The large-45mm diameter drivers are specially tuned to bring Audio-Technica studio-quality sound to the gaming world.
A strong, lightweight metal construction with a breathable headband pad and earpads provide supreme comfort through even the longest gaming sessions.
With the detachable mic removed, the headset doubles as a pair of portable, high-fidelity headphones for on-the-go listening.
The Audio-Technica ATH-G1 Premium Gaming Headset features specially tuned, large-diameter 45mm drivers with a max input capacity of 1,300 mW to deliver lively, studio-quality sound to any gaming environment.
The headset is also equipped with a flexible (and detachable) boom microphone that lets you communicate with your fellow gamers and a streaming audience – the mic’s highly directional pickup ensures that you’re always heard loud and clear.
Attached Cable. The attached 2. 0 m (6. 6 feet) cable (terminated with a gold-plated stereo mini-plug) includes a simple volume control and locking microphone mute switch for convenient, one-hand operation.
Lightweight Construction. The headset’s strong, lightweight construction, and breathable headband pad and earpads keep you comfortable, no matter how long you game. Also, the pads detach for easy replacement when needed.
Removable Mic. Remove the boom mic, and you have an excellent pair of high-fidelity headphones to use with your favorite portable device. Included Adapter Cable. The ATH-G1 comes with a short Y-type adapter cable (to split headphone and mic signals) and a windscreen.
Compatibility. This headset is compatible with PS4, Xbox One, laptops, PCs, and other gaming devices with a standard 3. 5mm TRRS headset connector or with a separate mic input and headphone output.
The sound quality out of these headphones is quite excellent for the price. I have a few cans for mixing in my home studio music projects and use these ones for my office work and video conferencing while onsite at work.
Compared to my reference headphones (Sony MDR-7506 and BEYERDYNAMIC DT 990) the sound quality is actually pretty good and in a pinch if I was recording someone, I wouldn’t hesitate to use these cans for them to use as monitors.
They are super comfy and light which is important if you are going to be wearing them for long stretches. I like cans that also have a built-in volume control wheel in them too which is handy if you are just using these as monitors for recording sessions – wouldn’t use these as reference monitors to mix your tracks though.
Now the mic quality is above average so I wouldn’t use these to make Youtube videos but for general office use with video conference calls it compares better than a few that I’ve tried. You’ll be a happy chappy with these cans.
Two years of use so far and I’m still in love! I game for 40-50 hours a week and I never feel discomfort. The best sound quality, build quality and comfort at this price range. The competition isn’t even close! I wont point fingers but I’ve tested a few of my friends “popular brand” gaming headsets over the last two years and they are awful compared to the ATH-G1.
After having these I don’t know how I could play games without them and that’s why I’m here to buy my second pair. Now, the only problem I’ve had with the ATH-G1 is the in line volume control. After 2 years its starting to cause a high pitch noise in my left ear when it gets brushed against my desk while gaming.
This wouldn’t be a huge issue because Audio technica would cover this defect if I had a warranty but I didn’t get one at purchase because I didn’t know id love this headset so much! Buy the ATH-G1 , get the warranty and enjoy the best gaming headset under 200$ on the market.
This is a great set of headphones, I’ve been using them for a month or so now: Pros: – Good material on the padding. Some other over the ears make my ears sweaty but these use a softer material that ventilates well.
– The sound, even at low volumes, is nice and clear. – They look good, and aren’t over the top like other “gaming” focused headphones. – Detachable mic is a nice-to-have I didn’t know I would use as much as I would.
If I just want to listen to music I can take it off and not havi ti be distracting. Cons: – The cord is both long and very bulky, making it somewhat awkward to use in cases. It gets caught in stuff you wouldn’t expect frequently.
– Clamping force is surprisingly weak. For example if you shake your head the headphones will move around. Also this causes weird pressure gradients where the top is clamping more than the bottom and vice versa in other cases.
I sometimes have trouble finding a comfortable position for them. – The mute switch is questionable and has caused issues in audio quality. It also has a loud pop that others can hear when toggled. You should use a software mute whenever possible instead of this.
Other notes (neither good or bad): – The sound profile leans more on the bass side. It isn’t overpowering and lows are still crisp, but do not expect a flat sound profile. – The mic needs to be a fair distance from your face to avoid maxing out the mic.
If you have the mic less than 3-4in from your mouth, expect your audio quality to be garbage.
The ATH-Mx Series headphones are a reliable source for monitoring in home and professional studio environments. Because of the increased demand due to the popularity of the ATH-M50, Audio-Technica refreshed the entire line of these closed-back studio headphones for a redesigned feel.
This is the most critically acclaimed model in the M-Series line, praised by top audio engineers and pro audio reviewers year after year. The ATH-M50x features the same coveted sonic signature, now with the added feature of a detachable cable.
From the large aperture drivers, sound isolating earcups and robust construction, the M50x provides an unmatched experience for the most critical audio professionals. Color: Black.
Auto-asked to write a review for the ATH M50x headphones I’ve just bought from Studio DJ. Decided to do so. Normally, it would be far too soon to write a review for a newly-purchased product. But this is the second pair of ATH M50x headphones that I’ve bought, so I have a lot of experience with them.
Must point out that I DON’T use them for music! I hardly ever listen to any music; only, sometimes, to Bach’s Klavier works on the car CD while driving. So, for music listeners, this review may be totally irrelevant.
I specifically chose the M50xs for field recording, especially for nature field recording: I mean, taking the headphones out with me in the field, in all kinds of weather and terrain conditions. For the quality, the price is reasonable, affordable, replaceable.
And, from my perspective, the quality is very good. You can find many technical reviews for the M50xs, with frequency response graphs, on the web, and it would be worth your while doing some research.
I did, and that’s why I chose, and was very happy with, these headphones, for my specific purposes. I typically also use them for listening to and editing field recordings, back at home, but I always use them comparatively, in conjunction with other headphones that I wouldn’t want to risk taking out into the field.
What I’ve found, from this experience, is that the M50xs work very well, both for in situ recording and for at-home listening/editing: they are very reliable up against other more expensive headphones.
From the listening perspective, for me, the most important point is that the M50xs present a significant bass boost (for frequencies below 200 Hz, and still very clearly for frequencies below 100 Hz).
For the purposes of nature field recording, this ‘bass emphasis’ is not a problem, for me, at all; to the contrary, it is a very great advantage, because it alerts me immediately to the presence of low frequency anthropogenic noise, such as distant traffic and machinery noise, which a much ‘flatter’ headphone frequency response would effectively gloss over.
I can then make a choice whether to continue recording, or try to get farther away (usually, it’s the latter). The other thing that should be mentioned about the M50xs is that they have a design weakness, which especially affects field recordists.
On the one hand, it’s wonderful that these headphones can be folded up for neat, convenient packing into a draw-string vinyl bag. But constant wear and tear takes its toll. There is a small plastic pin inside the hinge of the headphones which effectively holds them tight against your ears.
With much use, and perhaps especially with much folding and unfolding out in the field, that pin will break off. Then, the headphones no longer have any grip: they can’t be used. Fortunately, a quick search on the web for how to repair MKH50xs with this problem, reveals that there are several people who have produced 3D-printed little clamps that can be screwed over the hinge, to fix the problem – because it’s a very common and very well-known problem! The result makes the headphones quite usable; although, I found, not with quite the same strength of grip and tight seal around the ears as in the original.
Still, much better than ditching a pair of otherwise perfectly good headphones. So, that’s basically why I bought this second pair of ATH M50x headphones. I continue to use the repaired pair out in the field, and the new pair at my desk, in conjunction with other headphones.
It will be very interesting to see whether not needing to fold away, pack, and carry the new pair will lengthen their hinge lifespan. As for well-known deterioration of the earpads and interior lining of the headband (again, check the web): well, I had already replaced one pair of ear pads on the first pair, so when I bought this pair, I also added a pair of replacement ear pads to the purchase.
My feeling is that I’m glad that Audio Technica put the real use value into the important parts of the headphones: the listening parts! If the peripherals have much less longevity, well, at least there are replacements and fixes out there – and for a good reason: because the headphones are very good, and people want to keep using them!.
After a lot of research, it came down to this or Beyerdynamics dt770 pro. And I chose this over that as it had detachable cable, swivel earcups which I really need as I often have to remove my headphones.
Now I do have to say, the leather materials and the tight headband maynot be ideal for long usage, you may have some discomfort in wearing it continuously for hours. But other than that, The audio quality is definietly so good that I am now listening to my playlist with a very different perspective (idk if it makes sense but yes).
And for anyone who is looking to get their first Studio Monitor headphones will be very much satisfied. It offers a very flat sound which is not bad at all, it only means it replicates the voices and instrument as original as possible.
That is exactly what I needed as I need to mix my instrument and vocal tracks. And for all Audiophiles who would need their songs to sound close to original you would love this too! TLDR: If this is your first studio monitor, definitely go for it!.
The ATH-WS990BT wireless over-ear headphones combine exclusive 53 mm Deep Motion Drivers with large, high-flux magnetic circuitry and Bluetooth technology to deliver vibrant full-range wireless audio with invigorating bass.
The powerful magnetic force of the circuitry results in dynamic, well-tailored diaphragm response to reproduce deep, clear low frequencies and detailed mid-to-high frequencies. The sound is further enhanced by the exclusive dual-layer, memory-foam earpads, comprised of a firm internal layer and a soft outer layer, that provide excellent sound isolation and comfort.
The headphones can even reproduce Hi-Res Audio when used with the included 1. 2 m (3. 9′) audio cable. In addition to providing high-fidelity wireless audio, the ATH-WS990BT headphones also feature noise-cancelling and hear-through functionality that gives you greater control over your interaction with the outside world and its noise.
The headphones’ selectable active noise-cancellation function dampens the ambient noise for greater enjoyment of the Solid Bass audio in loud environments. Conversely, the selectable hear-through function allows voices in the surrounding area to be heard through the headphones.
This lets you listen for important announcements, say in a train station or airport, and hear the voice of anyone who might engage you in conversation. A mic and controls are built into the left earcup, giving you convenient control of calls and music playback on a wirelessly connected device.
An audio cable is also included to let you use the headphones in areas where wireless operation is prohibited (e. g. , in airplanes or hospitals), when battery power is low, or when you want to listen to Hi-Res Audio.
The headphones’ internal lithium polymer battery provides up to 30 hours of continuous wireless use (up to 1,000 hours in standby mode) and can be recharged using the included 30 cm (1. 0′) USB charging cable.
About High-Resolution Audio In Brief: The Move to Hi-Res Audio While many listeners may believe that high-resolution audio came along with the introduction of the Compact Disc in 1982, constraints on the disc’s storage space always prevented CD audio (standardized at 44.
1 kHz/16-bit) from fully and completely reproducing the original recorded sound. The advent and subsequent popularity of MP3s only made this problem more pronounced – the necessary compression of these files causes audio information to be lost, thus greatly reducing the audio quality.
But with lossless audio file formats, faster Internet speeds, and storage space increasingly easy to come by (and in ever-smaller packages), the push is on to create audio equipment capable of capturing and reproducing true Hi-Res Audio, generally considered to be 96 kHz/24-bit or better.
The Hi-Res Audio logo certifies that a product meets the Hi-Res Audio standards. Per these standards, headphones must have transducer frequency performance to at least 40 kHz. As a producer of these types of audiophile headphones since 1972, Audio-Technica is well-positioned to provide audio solutions that meet the demands of Hi-Res Audio media formats, allowing for the full reproduction of their extended sonic characteristics.
ATH-WS990BT Solid Bass Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Built-in Mic & Control
Reviews From Real Customers
The description states 53mm drivers. What isn’t stated is that they are hidden behind 40mm earpads. Completely misleading. The pads do not fit comfortably around your ears to give you complete coverage.
As a gamer, I generally purchase minimum 50mm headphones. to ensure over ear comfort for long term wear. Which is what drew me to this product. Regrettably the description is not true to the product you are getting.
Do not buy, unless you are seeking 40mm. If there is any positive, the sound quality is good. Sadly, I cannot return these due to Covid return policy. Hard earned money wasted.
I have had several comparable brands and priced headphones. Personally, I love over-ear headphones for comfort and fuller sound. I would consider myself an audiophile and these exceed my expectations.
I wear these headphones on average 30 hours a week while at work and they have held up perfectly over the last year. The sound is full and clear, powered by my iPhone XS. These are not noise-canceling, and with the semi open-backed design, others around me can sometimes hear what I’m listening to so I have to be thoughtful about that.
The microphone is excellent and crystal clear when I get a phone call. This pair was the right purchase and has left my M50x pair collecting dust. I listen to everything from rap to chello music.
When I tried these headphones in the store they sounded amazing. I thought I could save a bit by purchasing a refurbished set. My experience has just been awful. When I got them, the headphones didn’t sound right.
The left side had sound but no bass so I sent them back for service. It sounded like someone was hitting me on the right side of my head. Upon inspection, Audio Technica’s service technicians claimed nothing was wrong with it and sent the same pair back.
After multiple emails with different people they finally offered to refund my money but I have to pay for shipping. I’m just so dissapointed. don’t expect the same quality as a new pair from AT. Save yourself the headache and buy a new pair.
Open-Back Design, 53mm Drivers with Rare Earth Magnets, 5Hz to 35kHz Frequency Response, Cushioned Earpads, Adjustable Housing, 3m Cable, Included 1/4″ Adapter. The Audio Technica ATH-AD900X Audiophile Open-Air Headphones feature an open back design and 53mm drivers with rare-earth magnets that were designed by Audio Technica solely for the headphones.
They have copper-clad aluminum-wire voice coils and a 5Hz to 35kHz frequency response for accurate audio reproduction. They also feature cushioned earpads with honeycomb aluminum casing and Audio Technica’s 3D Wing Support Housing for adjustable wear.
The ATH-AD900Xs have a three-meter cable that terminates with a gold-plated 1/8 mini-stereo connector. A detachable 1/4 adapter is included.
I’ve just purchased a second pair! WOW! The year was 2011? Started gaming, and all the recommendations for ATH-AD700 and Xonar Essence was the rage. A short while later I picked up a set of ATH-AD900x’s and fell in love immediately.
Unfortunately, I recently broke mine by expanding the right cup over my ear, as I was taking them off. The band snapped under pressure (a bit of plastic glue would fix this easily, and be cheaper than a repurchase!) but I’ve looked around for other headphones, and on other stores too! I came back here for the ATH900x’s as they are the most well rounded, well suited, well shaped, and best performing for their price range, headphones I’ve ever come across.
You forget they’re on your head, even 16 hours later. The sound is detailed, not sharp. The mids are beautiful and if you add a tiny bit off bass on your EQ, like 3+dB on 20-50hz range, you’re able to enjoy all sorts of music.
I love my techno, dubstep, rap, hiphop, trance, psy and everything from 80 to 220bpm and I’ve always been satisfied with every listening scenario I’ve thrown at them. My only gripe with them is there’s no detachable AUX cable (although you can easily do a DIY) and if you’re in a loud environment, the open back design might not be fore you, but in a bedroom they’re perfect! Please keep these in stock, ’cause if I break them again, you can be sure I’ll be making another order :D.
Pros: Very lightweight and comfortable. Extremely open soundstage. Very open backed. Spring splite headband keeps pain off of the skull. Easy to mod. Great value. Failry neutral but can pick up a bit with a good amp.
Sound improves with better pads. (Leather) 3. 5mm with 1/4 adapter. Cons: Original pada are okay at best. Cable is too long for production or desk work. Cable is not removable. (Without taking it apart) Needs a very large case.
Not audiophile but nice overall sound signature. If you’re looking for a light comfortable over ear headphone with a smooth airy sound signature give it a try.
Simply the best headphones I have ever heard. I have for many years been a fan of my ATH-M50s, never having heard any others with as pleasant an overall sound – but they are closed back headphones that have the bass resonances and the “closed in” sound stage that go with that.
So I took a punt on a pair of these budget open air headphones – primarily for watching TV and Youtube Music. Wow! – The audio is so good I can scarcely believe it. There is bass that goes all the way down and is very clean – no doof-doof here.
The rendition of voice and instruments is spectacularly detailed, but can have some sharpness in the highs on some tracks – when the source is mixed by a treble deaf muso I assume. The first thing I did when unboxed them was to fix the problem that is well noted – that they tend to slide down on your head and don’t feel properly supported – because they aren’t.
I simply put a cable tie linking the 2 wing pads and adjusted the length for a perfect fit. Problem solved – they are now superbly comfortable and well supported. Although the sound stage is very open compared to closed back headphones, they are still headphones and it isn’t the same listening experience as a good speakers and amp.
Incredibly lightweight, unbelievably big in sound and perfect for long-wearing comfort, the ATH-AD500X Audiophile Open-Air Headphones are a truly ground-breaking set of cans when it comes to open-air listening.
With great reproduction of the higher end of the spectrum and an open, airy sound, you will be able to enjoy your music with a remarkable likeness to that of a live production. Huge Open Soundstage The ATH-AD500X bless your music with neutrality and a truly outstanding open feel, expanding the soundstage upwards as well as outwards, making you feel as if you are right inside a live environment.
The open-air features provide you with a big and bright listening experience for your hi-fi home system like no other pair of headphones. Well Balanced Audio Using newly designed 53mm drivers, that are positioned to face the front, you will experience reproduced sound that is crystal clear with bass that sits perfectly amongst the mix.
Treble flows smoothly and vocal projection is elevated to sparkling effect, whilst mid-range frequencies are well-balanced and rich in detail without becoming muffled in the mix. Unmatched Comfort Extremely light on the head (there are no pressure points here), the ATH-AD500X features soft fabric-lined pads that adjust to the shape and size of your head, sitting rigidly yet comfortably, giving you a long listening experience without the discomfort.
Flexible Listening The exceptionally long cable allows you to freely move around your room when listening. Plug-in to your hi-fi system and rest on the couch at the opposite end of the room minus the unwanted scenario of tangled cables, that can potentially become damaged.
I have owned many headphones. I was very pleased with their sound and condition given their refurbished status. These would not appeal to bass heads IMHO. The sound is generally well balanced. But, Im tempted to equalize the bass, just a small bump up.
They are comfortable to wear over long periods of time. I am driving them with a combination. Amplifier/DAC. Though Im sure my iPhone or iPad could easily drive them. As ever, MacSales offers a great bargain for a quality products.
These headphones are the best I’ve had. I had to buy them again after my last pair died after 2 years of heavy use. The best thing about them is that they sound very natural and they don’t deafen me to the world, so I can still hear if anyone is calling me or something happens around the house.
I I’ve used Sony, Marshal, Rode, Skullcandy and other headphones and these are just right every time. The price is also very affordable for the quality of the product. I will continue buying these headphones for as long as they are available.
Been using various models of the AD series for years and they have never let me down. I mainly enjoy them with gaming, they are enjoyably haunting to say the least. Walking around in Fallout 4 was unnerving with these headphones.
And playing classical and live music is a dream. The only thing I will forever dislike about these headphones are their band design. They are too loose on my giant head, and tend to slide down without doing the elastic band hack on them.
The also leave weird impressions on my head, even if I only wear them for a couple of minutes. One of those cheapo headband cozies is a quick and simple (albeit, ugly) solution for this. Other than that, these headphones always sound amazing out of the box.
Def the least troublesome headphones Ive ever used (i. e. no need to hack or mod for good sound).
The ATH-M20x professional monitor headphones have long provided a great introduction to the critically acclaimed M-Series. Now you can take that classic M20x studio sound with you wherever you go! Featuring powerful 40 mm drivers the ATH-M20xBT wireless over-ear headphones deliver the same sonic signature as the wired model with full-range high-fidelity audio and enhanced bass.
But they also give you the convenience of a Bluetooth wireless connection and have multipoint pairing capability that lets you connect wirelessly to two devices at once. Plus theres a low latency mode that improves the synchronicity between audio and video for smooth streaming and gaming.
I love these headphones but there is one item which makes me give it a 4 star instead of a 5 star rating; if I could I would give it a 4 1/2 star rating. The problem that I have with it are the buttons to control the various features.
These three button sit right next to each other and it is very difficult to distinguish them. The other issue is that the middle button is used to power on and power off (with a two second press) and a two second press is also used for some other function as well.
Whoever designed this interface did not put enough thought into this design. So if you are considering these headphones just be aware of this issue. As I said from a performance standpoint I love them: rich full sound; they sit very comfortably and I can wear them for hours att a time; the battery charge lasts a long, long time.
An incredible sounding headphone for it’s size, weight and price. Comparable to several brands of more expensive headphones with more features. They demonstrate great range with all genres of music and are easy to connect.
I probably shouldn’t be surprised, after all it is Audio Technica. And they do not have the “noise cancelling” feature. But despite that I still highly recommend them for music. They work well for phone calls as well but so do most decent blue tooth headphones.
The 60 hour playtime on a full charge is nice to. I really was more concerned about their ability with music and I was not disappointed.
For the price class I think this is the best sounding pair of headphones you can get. I bought these after watching Warren Huart’s video (Produce Like a Pro) comparing headphones and he was really amazed at the quality and he wasn’t just saying that either.
These are awesome. You can hear the really deep bass rumbles and the overall sound is nice and defined without being too harsh in the highs. Really excellent. I can recommend them. I prefer them over the AKG K-240’s that’s for sure.
They are very comfortable to wear. Shame the cable can’t be detached though.
Featuring newly designed 53 mm drivers with Audio-Technica’s double air damping system (D. A. D. S. ), the ATH-AG1X high-fidelity gaming headset gives you an incredibly immersive gaming experience with sharp, detailed audio and deep, resonating bass.
The headset also boasts an improved 3D Wing Support system and extremely soft ear pads for a comfortable, secure fit that lets you happily game on for hours. The ATH-AG1X also comes equipped with a premium gooseneck microphone to handle your in-game communication.
The mic’s super cardioid element is excellent at rejecting unwanted ambient noise, so your voice will come through crystal clear all the time. There’s even an included windscreen that slips onto the mic to further combat wind and breath noise, if need be.
For additional control and convenience, the headset’s 1. 2 m (3. 9′) cable includes a simple volume/locking mute switch for easy one-hand operation, and comes with a 2. 0 m (6. 6′) extension cable.
I’ve tried these headphones with about every type of surround sound there is and they always sound better without it. They provide amazing sound quality, enemy placement, bass, and soundscape without any help from surround sound.
I have played everything from Depth to Hunt: Showdown to Rocket League to Doom to Everspace and I never have any problems being easily immersed in the action with realistic sound quality and placement.
When used for Hi-Res music listening, there’s more than enough room for all instruments with great detail and imaging. I love the separation of instruments, as well. These headphones are perfect for all uses.
I have read reviews in which people claim these are loose on all but the largest heads. I have a smaller than average head and these sit perfectly and seem weightless on my head. They fit so perfectly, in fact, that I can even headbang and they don’t move a bit.
However, in the event that they feel loose for you, all you have to do for a tighter fit is to add a rubber band connecting the two wing pads. I use the APO/PEACE equalizer to give my sound a bit of a bass bump and they handle it perfectly because of the 53mm drivers and 5Hz low end range of frequency response.
Sound reproduction is pretty flat out of the box, which is a great thing! I simply prefer a bit of extra bass.
I immediately loved this pair of gaming headset on day one! Sound quality is top-notch, clear, smooth, and less spiking. Bass is well controlled, but it is definitely not super thin or flattened out, so if you’re a bass-ish head, you won’t be disappointed.
Due to the fact that this is a pair of opened acoustic gaming headset, the sound stage is very natural and spacious, which is pretty good for competitive gaming, high quality music listening, and enjoyable movie watching.
Overall, when it comes to sound quality of this headset, it’s just beautiful, period! On the other hand, I don’t like the materials that have been used to make this headset, especially the 3D wing headband.
It is made out of flimsy plastic, it can also be quite slippery on your head, and the contact pressure is quite on the loose. Audio Technica might as well re-design the headband and make it a regular one, which has a reliable metal band built inside and plenty of cushioning for the outside.
I personally don’t think this headset can take a beating or even last a considerable amount of time from day one – this is very disappointed in terms of durability and reliability.
On way home from store plugged these into the iPad and played an Apple Music Video (Florenece and the Machine “No Light, No Light” live) and listened to the Harp play across the soundstage. Tears formed.
(My go to headphones in my bag at that time were some Bowers&Wilkins P7 and Sony MDR-1A (bluetooth variants)). My daughter, choir leader, Sennheiser Momentum user, after a small listen (in car to compressed music) stated- these are the best headphones now that we have.
I don’t agree completely with that statement. Each headphone has pros and cons, even if the only negative is price. The B&W P7s have a pretty great soundstage, with great front to back imaging. These AudioTechnicas are still being broken in.
Being large driver headphones I expect this to take a few hundred hours until the finest of control settles. In my experience front-back soundstage and bass tightness and power are the final things to come from a little hardening of the parts involved.
Even friends who don’t believe in speaker driver burn-in have had headphones they thought had horrible bass and nasty grain come great after a few day use. After three days warm up (break in) the ‘grain’ that the ADG1X had out of the box is gone.
(few!). Bass is starting to align, and it took a little over an hour for the soundstage to start to show real control. Front-back isn’t done settling yet, but it is starting to really form. So; what do they do? Excellent sound stage.
A brief StarWars Battlefront ‘training’ session allowed me to test out Dolby Headphone (from my Asus Essence STX) and found it to be spot on. This is the best Dolby Headphone rendition I have yet heard, and for years I have been after a set of ‘cans that could do a soundstage like these.
(a handful to choose between) So happy I did. These headphones clearly reveal sampling rate differences. I would say they are analytical, musical, & quite masterful. Most music genres’ have played back fine.
Designed for the serious gamer who values the natural sound and feel of open-air headphones, the ATH-PDG1 gaming headset delivers powerful, detailed audio and long-lasting comfort. Large-diameter 40mm drivers with CCAW voice coils are specially tuned to provide lively, in-the-game sound.

I was reading the 1 star review and everything he says is operator error or computer error. I plugged these in to my 4 year old computer and my brand new computer that I just built. After watching a few music videos, playing some Overwatch and World of warcraft and talking to my friends in Mumble I completely disagree with everything he has said.
The mute button causes me ZERO issues. Its actually quite nice having the mute button and volume button on the cord instead of fumbling around on the headset. I hear zero “popping”. The audio quality is AMAZING.
These are “gaming” headsets. Not Ipod headphones. They do not have tons and tons of bass. They are for hearing gunshots and footsteps in video games. Which to me the quality is unparalleled. This headset fits so comfortably on my head it feels like it has almost no weight.
The ear covers completely cover my ears and it feels like they’ve used a felt like material instead of a cheap faux leather you’d get from another company. You’re truly paying for quality here. If you take care of this headset it will last you a very long time.
Designed with the serious gamer in mind, the ATH-PG1 delivers wonderfully immersive audio and long-lasting comfort that puts you in the game and lets you stay there as long as you want. Large 44 mm drivers provide powerful, lively sound specially tuned to accentuate all the sonic detail of the gaming environment.
The closed-back headset is constructed of lightweight materials and features soft leather headband and earpads, allowing you to play on without fatigue. The ATH-PG1 also comes equipped with a flexible, 6″ boom microphone for crystal-clear in-game voice communication with other gamers.
This mic, with 1. 2 m cable and in-line volume and mute control, can be detached and replaced with a 1. 2 m smartphone cable, which includes its own mic and portable-device controller. An additional 2.
0 m extension cable terminating in two 3. 5 mm mini plugs for mic and audio works with either of the 1. 2 m cables to provide increased flexibility when gaming on a computer. The 1. 2 m smartphone cable lets you transform this gaming headset into any everyday pair of on-the-go headphones, perfect for answering calls and controlling audio and video on smartphones and other portable devices.
These are pretty solid headphones great quality and clear sound. The build is very nice much like the ATH-M40X with nice gold and black coloring. The mic is super nice and clear. they did really well on selecting a good mic The sound quality is above average.
They do sound like the M40X with a bit more bass cause of the gaming profile. Footsteps are distinguishable. works better if you use Windows Sonic for headphones. Cons The cable and Mic are detachable if that ever breaks you have to buy a new mic/wire alltogether.
IT doesnt have like a aux cable input straight to the headphone. comes with a lot of accessories too. #sweepstakes.
Microphone is average, as expected of any “gamer” style headset. If you’re looking for a great mic and great sound quality, buy a professional mic and expensive headphones, these are for the gamers that want great sound quality while being able to communicate in game.

His groundbreaking, cinematic scores and sound designs have pushed technological and musical boundaries, raising the art of video game soundtrack production to an unprecedented level Frank depends on Audio-Technica products when creating in the studio.
So it’s little wonder that he also recommends A-T’s high-fidelity gaming headsets to those wanting to hear all the power and nuance of his work. Experience the games as Frank intended, and take yourself to a different level of gaming.
PREMIUM GOOSENECK HIGH RESPONSE MICROPHONE Supercardioid microphones are a type of directional microphone with a narrow pickup pattern (narrower than cardioid), which results in outstanding rejection of undesired ambient sound.
3D WING SUPPORT SYSTEM New, softer earpads and a redesigned, self-adjusting 3D Wing Support Housing that perfectly adapts to the user’s head for comfortable long gaming sessions. VOLUME & MUTE CONTROLLER Simple volume control and microphone mute switch enable one-hand operation.
OPEN-AIR DESIGN Lightweight, honeycomb aluminium design offers a natural, spacious sound that keeps your ears cool even under the most intense gaming fire.
Great sound quality, light weight, very comfortable. The downside in my opinion is the cheap feeling on certain materials. For the headset in this pricerange I would expect better. Compared to Astro A50 3gen is lacking in that department.
Sound however is better than the astro. The volume “roller” is terrible. Last time I’ve seen something underwhelming cheap design it was in the 90’s. Also the cable is rather short. Maybe 50cm? Still, good headset if you don’t expect high quality materials.
I wouldn’t recommend audio technica to everyone until they changed this gimmick or stiffen the springs. this just gets comfortable for half an hour. then slids off your head resting the headset on top of your ears which is extremely annoying given that everyone has a different shape and head size.
Beware of reviews saying this headset is comfortable, unadjustable wing span that could fit small and big head is not possible and suspension are not stiff enough unless you have a big head the headset would not slip off.
It is extremely annoying and disappointing considering the sound quality is really amazing.
Mic needed to be set up due to the default on my computer being at 30%. If you cant be heard check your settings. Cable length is great just need to be aware of it depending where your computer is. I bought this product because most headsets hurt my head after long use.
This one sits nicely on my head and does not hurt also I took the open air so I could hear whats going on around me. Overall great product it replaced my Razer kraken will recommend to others.
The Audio Technica ATH-AD700x Audiophile Open-Air Headphones have an open-air design that produces low pressure on your ears for a comfortable listening experience. They feature 53mm drivers and bobbin-wound copper-clad aluminum-wire voice coils for increased power handling.
The raised-fabric earpads and self-adjusting 3D Wing Support are designed to provide comfort during extended use. The headphones have a single-sided oxygen-free copper cable that is sheathed in elastic TPE to prevent tangles.
Their earcups have aluminum honeycomb casing. The three-meter cable terminates with a gold-plated 3. 5mm stereo mini-plug connector.
(TL;DR at end) After using these headphones for a few weeks, I can say for sure that they are quality products. Even without an amp, they have a very clear and detailed sound. They definitely don’t sound muddy like some other headphones that I’ve tried.
The bass isn’t exactly the main strength of these headphones, but it still manages to capture the details well and have good depth. Other headphones at this price range, like the Sennheiser HD700, may have more powerful bass if that’s what you’re looking for.
The mids of these headphones are excellent. Vocals sound very clear and, at least for me, just seem to come alive more than many other headphones I’ve tried. I’ve also noticed that it can make vocals much easier to hear.
While using these headphones, I could easily understand vocals that I had difficulty even distinguishing from other sounds with some other headphones I’ve tried. The treble extends well for a pair of dynamic headphones.
These obviously aren’t electrostatic headphones, so they’re good for what they are. I don’t have any complaints with how well the treble extends and the response. The treble is detailed and manages to make cymbals sound good, which isn’t an easy thing to do.
They can do all that and are still very easy to listen to. I didn’t notice any harshness at all with the treble, so I would say it does well in that regard. Soundstage is good. These headphones would likely fall onto the more intimate side of the spectrum, but by no means is the soundstage small.
The soundstage makes me feel like I’m surrounded by the sound, as if I could just reach out and touch it. As more of a side note, watching videos, movies, or whatever else is a pretty enjoyable experience; it really gives me a feeling of immersion that I haven’t gotten from my previous headphones.
Keep in mind that I don’t have a ridiculously huge headphone collection, but it just stood out enough that I thought it was worth a mention. Also, I’m certain that these headphones would sound even better with a good amplifier.
The wing system might not be for everyone, but personally they work very well for me so I don’t have any complaints. Would I say that the price is completely and without a doubt justified comparing these headphones to, say, the ATH AD-1000x? I’m not entirely sure.
Maybe it’s true that the sound profile is very similar and the price difference is quite large, but that small difference is really what sold me on getting these instead. Would I say it’s a good deal? Maybe not.
Would I buy these headphones again? Definitely. PROS: + Very good clarity + Moderate amount of bass + Excellent mids + Vocals sound great + Treble is detailed without being harsh + Easy to drive, even with most phones + Engaging headphones + I like them HMM: +- Intimate, but maybe not the largest soundstage +- Price may not be entirely justified compared to ATH AD1000x +- Unique wing headband maybe not comfortable for everyone +- Not the best headphones if you like a lot of bass +- Some people have complained about the earcups trapping heat, but I haven’t had problems.
(Although they can be swapped with the ATH AD1000x earcups and that seems to solve the problem) CONS: – Wires seem to be non removable, at least not without disassembly – Metal part of headband seems a bit fragile (really makes me paranoid about bending them).
I reviewed similar model open headphones from Audio Technica, and may have not been as fair as should have. I came from the Sony XB series ‘phones, which are quite bass heavy, which may have influenced my original review.
Headphones are very personal, and all have distinct sound, and need to “auditioned” for some time before passing judgment. Anyway, on to these. First – comfort. The fit is nice, they are fairly lightweight.
The “wings” are a neat feature, but on my head did not apply enough pressure around my ears, and felt as though they slipping down on my jaw. Easily cured with a small elastic cord to add pressure. I kept adjusting the length of the elastic until I had a perfect fit, and comfort for my head / ears.
Can use now for hours and hours. Next, the sound of these headphones. I have come to realize all sound reproducing systems (headphones, speakers, etc. ) have their own tonal characteristics, or coloration.
These headphones are capable of reproducing sound from below hearing to above hearing. Having said that, they are not “bass heavy”. The bass is truly very deep, but needs a little push. To that end, using an amp, or some EQ will make these headphones light up.
These have an “in the middle” soundstage, as though you were on stage with performers – whereas my Beyerdynamic seem to be a bit more “open soundstage” – as though you were in audience. Overall, for the price, a very nice sounding set of cans that do justice to your listening.
Let me start out by saying I love these headphones. Using these plugged into an NI Traktor S2 with grant you very rich audio quality, and the open ear design is perfect for what I need the headset to do.
It also keeps up in the gaming side of things, providing great 3d accuracy (at least as far as it can with a stereo setup). The complaints that are present are purely with the flashy design that do more harm than good.
First complaint, is the lack of a coiled wire. Although this seems like more of a luxury, I’ve seen a buddies pair of lower-end ATs with a coiled wire, and it really puzzles me why they would include it on a lower-end pair and not a higher end pair.
Second, is what’s replacing the basic headphone “headband”. I don’t really know what to call them other than “head mounts”, so for the sake of this review, that’s what I’m talking about when I say head mounts.
These things move organically to the shape of your head, rotating in 2 axis to fit a roughly average-sized head. They are not adjustable, and they seem very, very fragile. Although I haven’t broken them, they seem to have a weak point where I’ve been waiting for them to break at.
Every time the wire gets caught under the wheels of my office chair (remember: not coiled) and I trip over it nearly every time I attempt to leave the room, launching the headset across the room. Surprisingly, the head mounts haven’t broken yet, but every time it falls I cringe.
By now I should just have faith in the design, but it really does not seem like it will stand up to too many more trips over wires. I’d love to see a sort of stress test on those head mounts to put my mind at peace about them, but they really look weak.
Although I love the sound, I can’t trust them for on-the-road use, and because of that I don’t think my next pair of headphones will be ATs.

The ATH-M70x headphones are a great sounding pair of closed backs. They are fairly neutral and provide excellent clarity. That is where the pros stop, however. The other pair of headphones in the line(M50x) are built like tanks.
They can fold every which way and can take quite the beating. So for 300 dollars you would expect their “flagship” model to have on par if not better build quality. Absolutely not. The m70x may be comfortable but it is extremely fragile and weak, specifically near the swivel.
My pair of m70x’s has had BOTH of the cups break off more than 3 times, getting them repaired by audio technica each time. Its not like they broke from a very high height onto wood floor or something.
They broke falling from ONE FOOT onto SOFT CARPET. That is inexcusable build quality. TL;DR: These headphones sound amazing, but they are so fragile that you can expect them to break. Unless audio technica fixes this issue with the swivels, DO NOT BUY.
Overall: I have been using ATH headphones since ATH M50 wayyyy before the ATHM50X and M70X. Let me just say that all of their headphones are great and they have a wide variety of headphones that suit anyone.
Whether it’s just everyday listening, in a band or if you’re a producer like myself. From the moment I put on these cans I can immediately hear every detail of a song and when I use them to mix my songs I hear all dimensions of every instrument that was placed in the song.
This headphone is a cheat code for the cost in my opinion. I was about to buy the Focal professional headphones which obviously would have run me into way more than just $229 but no matter, these get the job done for me at this point.
For those that are thinking about buying one my question is why wait any longer?.
I bought these headphones primarily for sound isolation while recording. The closed-back design does indeed prevent nearly all the sound coming from the headphones from bleeding into the microphone. They are also reasonably comfortable, but not nearly as comfortable for long periods as say, Bose QuietComfort headphones, that I used to wear for 8-14 hours on long intercontinental plane rides with zero head fatigue.
Aside from the reasonably good functional and comfort aspects, these headphones have two other issues: uneven frequency response, and long-term durability. These are closed-back headphones. If you’re looking for really even frequency response for mixing or critical listening, I don’t know of any closed-back headphones that will come anywhere close to a good pair of open-back headphones.
The value of the closed-back design is to isolate what you’re hearing through the cans from bleeding back into the microphone, and/or from keeping loud room noise from bleeding into what you’re hearing.
The frequency response through these headphones has that typical congested sound of closed-back headphones. I would not recommend them for adjusting mix levels. If you do, you will be surprised how unbalanced your mix sounds through loudspeakers, in your car, etc.
But the most surprising and biggest issue is the durability. I have only used these headphones in my modest home studio for a couple of years. I treat them with care – never throwing them around or blasting excessively loud music through them.
While recently recording some acoustic guitar, I realized the bass response was missing, in both channels. At first I thought it was my headphone pre-amp, but when I plugged in a pair of trusty old Grados into the same output jack, the sound was normal.
It seems the low-frequency drivers in both channels of the ATH-M70x has died – they are now like listening to a loudspeaker that lost its woofer, and all you hear is upper midrange and tweeter response.
In summary, if you need great-sounding headphones, these weren’t that great even when new. Go for some open-back headphones for that purpose. If you need sound isolation, while these work well for that, I believe there are better-sounding and more durable products on the market.

Reviews From Real Customers
The headphones sound great, and the build quality is top notch. They’re comfortable to wear for extended periods, even for my large head. The Bluetooth connection is strong. It takes several walls between them and the source, to disrupt the connection.
I primarily use them with my TV, playing Netflix and xbox. I haven’t noticed any lag between the audio and video. I’ve only been using them for a couple of days, but so far, the battery life is excellent.
My only complaints are – that during calls, I can hear myself and ambient noises through the speakers. The calls are fine it’s just a minor annoyance. – And the lack of active noise cancelling is disappointing.
Other head phones in this price range (and cheaper) have ANC. It’s a strange omission. It’s not a deal breaker for me, but maybe for some.
The first premium high-end, fully immersive 3D gaming headphones designed for high-end PC gaming. With head tracking by WAVES Nx technology, Mobius also works with Playstation and Xbox. All processing is in the headphones, so latency is negligible.
With fully integrated surround sound functionality, Mobius produces the same awe inspiring cinematic experience you would find in a theatre. Mobius looks just like a 5. 1/7. 1 sound card to your computer.
Switch from USB to wireless, featuring Bluetooth, AAC, & LDAC. And with the new LDAC technology, you get three times the data bandwidth as other Bluetooth headphones for superior audio. Finally, high-rez audio over Bluetooth! Crystal-clear voice calls.
Mobius comes with a flexible/detachable boom microphone with built-in noise attenuation, mute/unmute functionality, and independent volume controls to provide exceptional voice quality. It is Discord Certified.
Comfortable – Mobius’s comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of replaceable, contoured memory foam ear pads and an adjustable, durable memory foam padded headband. Note: this color “Carbon” is the all black version.
Even though these are billed as “gaming” headphones, the audio quality out of them for conference calls and high-end audio sources alike is extremely impressive. Right out of the box these need very little tweaking.
When you do want to tweak though, you can use the Audeze HQ app on your phone, or download it on your Mac or Windows. The software can be a bit glitchy on Windows, and is by Audeze’s own admission still in active development, but overall the features and controls available are fantastic.
The head tracking feature is really cool but can easily lose center if you move around a bunch like leaning down to grab something off the floor that you knocked off your desk – it will start to wander to one side or the other when you do this.
Fortunately, there is a button on the left earpiece which lets you reset the center quickly and get your balance back to normal. I have to say it is pretty awesome and creepy at the same time to be on a call and do a 360 spin in your chair and you hear the voices stay exactly where you centered the headset.
Brings a bit of that “in-person” reality back to calls without having to use the ****** laptop speakers to get there. The microphone comes across amazingly clear from everyone I have talked to. They have all said it is the clearest sound they have heard from someone on a call, and we’re basically experts at this point thanks to everyone now being remote.
Bluetooth works reasonably well and hasn’t dropped connection at all, but I prefer to tether with a cable still just for the added reassurance that I’m getting the best signal. Playing a lot of my favorite artists on Qobuz have a brand new feel to them.
The highs are not ear shattering, and the bass won’t rattle the cans off your ears, but there is more than enough to make these deliver perfectly bright highs and punchy accurate bass response for rich immersion.
I first discovered these at AXPONA and thought they were a bit gimmicky hooked up to a video game demo, until I sat down and really listened to them. Sure, these aren’t nearly as nice as Focal, Meze, or even some of the other Audeze options, but again for this price point they are amazing at a fraction of the cost with the same planar magnetic technology as the expensive pairs.
I purchased a pair that day while still walking around the conference. I’m not currently using an amplifier or a DAC with them, but I do plan on purchasing an AudioQuest Dragonfly to really make the most of these until my next upgrade, especially for mobile listening.
These headphones far surpass any other “Gaming” headset/headphone in their price range immensely in regards to audio quality. However — these just simply do not support full wireless gaming on a PC due to bluetooth limitations.
The Audeze Mobius headphones/headset only supports Bluetooth wireless technology, so while you can get an audio signal to the device pretty clear from a Windows machine, you will NOT be able to do both audio + microphone over a single bluetooth connection.
If you plan to use this device as a wireless gaming headset, or plan to use the microphone + audio at the same time wirelessly, please look elsewhere. If you plan to use this headset wired via USB C, and are okay with that, then this is absolutely an incredible product and I cannot praise it enough.
I eventually looked elsewhere for a product that is truly wireless, but I sure do miss the audio quality of these things. nothing has compared.
BUYER BEWARE Now make no mistake, there is no better gaming headset on the market. The sound quality is insane and a bargain at 400 dollars and the on board mic is adequate. The 3D gimmick turns out to be more then that and remains an enjoyable function you will miss on any other headset.
However this all come with a gargantuan colossal BUT, and that is the build quality is unbelievably, unapologetically bad. You can see from the pictures that it is aesthetically good looking and it is comfortable to wear, even if it is a little heavy.
what the pictures don’t show you is a horrible design flaw. The design flaw is that the plastic above the ear swivels is incredibly prone to just. breaking in half, rendering the headset completely useless.
Mine broke in just five months, and I took good care of it. And no the warranty will not cover you. In my quest to find a repair to the issue I have found that this is an exceptionally common problem among Mobius owners and you can even find 3D printer files for replacement swivels.
that’s how prevalent the issue is. So overall the Mobius is an exceptional headset that is marred by the inexplicable reason to use cheap Chinese plastic that is prone to breaking on a premium 400 dollar headset.
These lightweight, wireless headphones are designed for those who are constantly on the move, with a great battery life enabling you to experience clear dynamic sound for a whole day on one charge. Handy features, such as built-in controls and a fold flat design, make your listening experience as free and easy as possible.
The sound quality is excellent, the fit and comfort is great (for me), Bluetooth connection is strong. Noise cancelling is good (not Bose good, but good) and the hear through feature works great. Battery life is very good, lasting me weeks of periodic use between charges.
There are two drawbacks: the mic is so poor that you literally have to shout for the person on the phone to hear you, which is awful if you bought these for office/online meeting use. Changing Bluetooth device connection is a bit of a pain in that you have to position two fingers on imaginary buttons on the left ear cup for 10 seconds to disconnect from a device.
This won’t be an issue if you always connect to the same device, but if like me you connect to phone, laptop, and sometimes TV, it can be a bit of an inconvenience. I’d rather have an actual button or switch to press than have to hope that you’re fingers are placed on the sensors correctly.
So, if you’re only using for music and you like a balanced range – no strong bass – you can’t really do much better for anywhere close to this price. But if you want to use them for hands free calls or zoom meetings you should look elsewhere.
The great sound makes them worthy of 4 out of 5 despite the issues.
The sound is amazing, really flat and balanced audio, really great for all kinds of music. I like the ability to have audio come through while you’re still wearing them in case someone want something and you cant bother removing them too.
The only issue is that it won’t charge. I’ve used the provided cable, I’ve plugged it into a device that doesn’t have fast charging, and the light quickly flashed red and stayed off. I thought it was weird because the manual said it was supposed to stay on when it’s charging, and the app says it’s at 5%.
Several hours later I turn it on, and the app says 5%. I tried with different cables, I tried with different computers, same thing. Flashes once or twice quickly and then shuts off. Will be returning these.
I really enjoy these headphones, the sound quality is the key factor, I use mine to watch movies and the accuracy in the vocal range, not to mention the depth and impact on the bottom end in the low to mid volume area is great.
My only complaint is that I wish they would get a little bit louder. The battery lasts a long time. I only charge the about once every 10 days. Would recommend if you like classical or blues, where sound quality is the aim.
Still good for metal and rap at lower volumes as well. Even when all out, no distortion, just a falling off of low end.

design – great, maybe the headband had more durability or more affordable accessories in terms of value for money to upgrade, eg: Bluetooth and mic version upgrade costs almost 60 percent of product price ooof comfort – becomes sweaty in long sessions if you are not in air-conditioned room, your ears will get tired after 2-3 hrs.
even at 90 percent volume. keep volume at max 70 if considering long hrs. use gaming – perfect, even better than some pro gaming headsets which distort real in game sound by unnecessarily amplifying footsteps and faking up the all-other sound which makes the immersive in game exp.
bland no issue with these headphones though sound quality – sound is already in a sweet spot but you can use equalizer to boost bass if you prefer it certain way value for money – yeah it sure was value for money, used them literally every day for 4 years avg.
Launched in 2018, the Mobius 3D surround sound gaming headset transformed the landscape of gaming audio forever. The first headphone ever to deliver true spatialized 5. 1 and 7. 1 audio complete with head tracking, Mobius represents a degree of technological achievement which no other headphone manufacturer has been able to reach.
Built with Audeze’s patented planar magnetic drivers and Waves NX 3D spatial audio technology, Mobius delivers audiophile sound quality with unprecedented immersion and accuracy. It’s no wonder then that it’s been recognized as the best high-end PC gaming headset multiple years in a row by key opinion leaders including IGN and PC Mag.
I recently was trying to get the best sound I can buy for movies and music. Online research led me to Audeze Mobius. Yeah, I admit this is quite an expensive headphone, but so do all planar magnetic based headsets.
This headset has the best technology combination: HiFi Planar magnetic drivers, 7. 1 head-tracking surround, Bluetooth, USB 24bit DAC. It’s one size fits all for me. I use it mostly for 4K HDR movies playing in computer, and sometimes I’d like to bring it with my trips.
Most planar magnetic headphones are wired and need an amp. Not this one. No need to bring a portable amp with my phone, no cable mess. Once I connect it to the computer, it automatically becomes a 7.
1 surround headset, the sound stage stays in the same position when my head turns. It’s kinda magical. Its effect is way better than Dolby Access and DTS Surround. I am not a gamer so I cannot say things about the position accuracy.
Just my movies all now have wide sound stages and much better sound. Of course the most magical thing is the sound. Crispy high, clear mid and deep and responsive bass. This is the sound I have been looking for.
Of course you can turn of the 3D and switch to HiRes to get even better effect, but it’s good enough for me. I just love how beautiful it is out of the box. Yup, I was hesitated to spend so much for a headphone.
The best headphones I have ever had. First day, all works like a charm!!! sound quality is amazing. Easy to connect with USB C to my laptop, or blutooth to my phone Second day, when I switch between computers with the same usb c cable it gave me a few errors.
Every 3D mode it is reckognize by the system as a new pair of headset, so you have one pair of headphones, but it counts as three different for the system based on the mode you are 3D, 7. 1 or Stereo.
Third day, Microphone has some weird driver errors. Four day, I cant hear anything even knowing the sounds was being trasnmitted. Try different USB C to USB C or USB A cable, 3. 5 mm jack or Blutooth, I cant hear anything.
I returned them on the fourth day, obviously. I am really dissapointed because when they work, they were awesome. Customer service was responsive but too late for me. I submitted a ticket on a Saturday (4th day) and they reply first thing on monday morning with a possible solution.
These are $400 headphones. 2 year in the market, so it is a mature system. They should work flawless by the price and the premium you pay. I am going to miss them a lot, I wish they work all the time.

The Pro 30 Studio Headphones stand by their name. I was pleasantly surprised by the perfectly balanced, high-clarity sound of the bass and treble. These headphones have a very nice, stylish look to them.

90 degrees for single-ear monitoring. This comes in very handy when I am working on my music tracks. I always need a free ear for multitasking. I was also very happy to see that these headphones come with all the correct wires I would need to connect them to my studio equipment.
That alone is huge. These headphones also come with a very nice carrying bag, making them easy to pack and go. I can’t wait to try them out with my new studio audio box.
I recently bought these Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT headphones to replace an old pair of Sennheiser HD 208 headphones. My first impressions are that the audio quality is very nice. There is a clarity and space to the sound that is immediately noticeable.
I mainly use them for listening to music, playing games and watching films. I’ve never used any headphones through amplifiers or DACs, which I have heard can give you better quality, but the quality through both the wired and wireless connection methods has made a good impression on me.
I have tried them on my laptop, on a PS4 and Switch through the wired connection, and also via Bluetooth on my phone and laptop. I did have an issue connected through Bluetooth on my Macbook Pro from 2010, where it would disconnect often, but that may be due to the age of the computer and the Bluetooth version.
On my iPhone 7, however, there were no issues connecting or staying connected. Based on the music I have listened to with these headphones, from film scores such as Jerry Goldsmith’s Alien and James Horner’s Avatar to pop and more modern tracks from Michael Jackson and Daft Punk, for example, it is easy to become immersed in the sound.
The different instruments are clearly discernible in the mix and I have noticed things that I didn’t know were there before, which has been really wonderful. The reason why I have given 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the way the sound is perceived to me.
There is definitely a dimensionality to the sound, to the point where it does sound like you are in the middle of the music. However, to my ears, it feels like the mix sits slightly behind where I expect the sound to be.
I can hear the sound behind and around me, and also in the centre of my head, but some of the headphones I am used to place the sound slightly more forward, which I prefer. When comparing the old headphones to these, they are definitely not as clear, but with the M50xBT headphones, where the sound sits doesn’t quite feel right to me.
I have read that these headphones are very good for critical listening, such as studio mixing, and now I understand this, as everything can be heard very clearly. I thought they would be suited to my ears, but unfortunately I will have to continue looking for the right pair for me.
Despite the one issue I have with the M50xBTs, I would recommend them to others. They give a lovely, clear sound within a wide space. They are very comfortable and isolate noise from the outside well.
I only needed to charge them once, and the battery has lasted already for over a week of use, although I haven’t used them wirelessly that much. For what they offer, they are definitely good value for money, just not the right ones for me.
I hope these comments can be useful for those considering the M50xBT headphones.
I bought these to upgrade from my Marshall headphones which have smaller cans and are not studio monitor style like these are. These A. T’s sound great. I use these to help me drown out the sounds on and of the subway on my daily commutes and they help immensely.
Because they cup the ears and sit around them, they seal off a lot of the surrounding noise. Music comes in nice and clear without having to turn up loud. The bluetooth connects instantly. They are a bit on the big n bulky side compared to the Marshall’s and much heavier.
The design could be much sleeker all around including the control buttons design. The cushioning and padding is very plush though after a couple hours you do start feeling the squeeze from the ear pads.
Pad upgrades could relieve that. Overall for a pair of studio monitor, noise reducing, bluetooth headphones. these are great.
Sounds is good. mic quality is good. Unfortunately, they just don’t do what I need them to do. When connected to Windows 10, any time the mic is used they cease to be stereo headphones and become a mono headset.
If you leave them as a headset at all times, you only have mono sound. If you use them as stereo headphones, you will lose your audio out every time the microphone is used. It does not seem to be possible for them to appear to the computer as a pair of headphones and a microphone, so you cannot have stereo audio (possibly using something like Power Mixer to send your call to one ear and some other source of audio to the other) while using the microphone.
A top monitor headphone as advertised. Great tight bass with balanced sound maintained. Build quality is both solid and flexible. Strong wire connection that is not too long. The blue black special edition looks great.
All that plastic takes getting used to- the headphone lasts and remains in one piece. The ear pads are not the best. Despite this, the isolation and passive noise cancelling is excellent. Love the sound.
It is great for pleasure listening, but it can also be used for stage and studio. Not a flat sounding headphone because of the bass impact, but highly detailed with a decent Soundstage. Immersive and addictive; in the same conversation with the flatter sounding AKG K371.
In my headphone collection, it is top shelf. It’s that good in comparison to strong alternatives.
There are a few things to consider when purchasing headphones for gaming. First, you’ll want to make sure that the headphones are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Second, you’ll want to make sure that the headphones have good sound quality so you can hear all the details in your game.
And finally, you’ll want to make sure that the headphones are compatible with your gaming system.
Audio-Technica has a wide variety of headphones that are great for gaming. Their ATH-ADG1X open-back headphones are comfortable to wear and have great sound quality. They’re also compatible with PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One.
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Audio-Technica ATH-PG1 headset is a great choice. It’s comfortable to wear and has good sound quality, but it’s only compatible with PC.
