Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone Design

It’s a very simple design, nothing looks odd or awkward about it already. On the top you will find the head band is made out of metal with vents along the top. In Addition to a pad in the middle for the comfort of your upper head. There is a screw on the upper top of the pad. Which will help you change it whenever you want. The head band is very handy as you can adjust it upon your need and your head size.

Looking to the outterside of the earcups you will find the Audio Technica logo. Surrounded by a blue circle the place of the cable and the port for the microphone existed on the left earcup. While on the right earcup it’s blank. Inadition to the earcups itself can be angled inwards and outwards. While the inner side of the ear cups are made out of mesh cloth like material and in the center you will find a blue mesh cloth.   

The cabell on the other side is 2m long. Comes with a small controlling panel on it. This panel includes a microphone mute switch, volume ring to increase and decrease the volume upon your need. 

Moving from the design of the Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone to the sound.

Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone Sound

Prior to assessing the ATH-G1 series, I have some involvement in gaming earphones, for example, the Razer Kraken and JBL Quantum series. Ordinarily, gaming earphones will quite often have a great deal of accentuation on bass. Without a doubt, a lot of bass can convey a superior gaming experience to clients, particularly in real life scenes. You can feel the sub-bass thunder when there is a discharge or blast. 

The ATH-G1 series adopts an alternate strategy. Rather than essentially siphoning up the bass amount, Audio Technica centers more around giving quick and exact bass reactions to clients. Contrasting the Razer Kraken next to each other with the ATH-G1 series, the last option has a more exact bass reaction.

When I first tried the headset. I tried it with PUBG. The bass is very powerful Yall, I could even hear the slightest movement in the game. Gunshots are very powerful and feel like it’s right all over you in the room. The reloading of the weapons itself and everything sounds very realistic. That’s because of the 45mm drivers used in the Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone. Which by its role brings you a very awesome sound experience to match your desire. Not only that but also because of the 1,300mW input capacity which allows you to experience every small tiny audio in the game.

This is the same whether you’re playing on a PC, Xbox or PS. Regarding music and watching movies the Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone provides a decent amount of bass. Which is impressive to be honest.

The microphone works in an acceptable way, everyone can hear me out clearly. Yet I faced a problem. Which is the mic should be adjusted to a certain distance from your mouth otherwise no one will hear you. 

I started recording my voice while rotating the mic for testing. At first it sounded yet while rotating to 90 degrees I kinda heard my voice very far. So yeah the mic has some weekspots and strong spots.

Other than this the Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone mic works very fine. It  also cancels most of the noise in my background.


Since this headset doesn’t accompany remote capacities, you will utilize the included 3.5mm jack to plug into your PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox regulators. Basic attachment and play is all you really want and you’re prepared to begin messing around on your beloved control center. 

Likewise remembered for the crate is a Y-plug that permits you to interface the headset to your PC’s sound and earphone jacks, allowing you to talk and pay attention to the game you’re playing. One finish of the Y-plug interfaces with the finish of the headset and from that point you’ll have to connect the remainder of the link. Since they are named, you’ll handily realize which attachment goes where. 

Increasing the volume and quieting yourself is likewise basic as it appears yet there were a couple of times when I expected to crank the volume down yet it was going up. You’ll become accustomed to it after a little, however, something to observe.


Audio Technica ATH-G1 Headphone is more than what you need. It provides you with a great sound and very great bass. Makes you fill like living in the game. My only issue is the detachable mic that needs to be adjusted at a certain range from your mouth.
