Audio-Technica microphones and wireless systems are also selected for major broadcast music events, including the GRAMMY® Awards and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
If you are a gamer or if not just ask one, having a high quality headset is crucial for the overall gaming experience and the ATH-PDG1 provides that. Having a good headset allows the game to draw you in, hear every detail and if you are playing with others an excellent microphone for clear communication is a must. We love playing FPS (First Person Shooter) games and being able to hear footsteps, the leaves crunching under their feet can make the difference between winning or losing. Thanks to the large 40mm diameter drivers we get audio that is extremely accurate and powerful.
Gamers love to play their games and that could mean playing for hours at a time so the comfort of the headset is just as important as the sound quality. Featuring a 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 premium 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.
