How do we feel about the Audio technica ATH-ADG1X?

Picked up a set for £80 a couple months back and have been really happy with them so far, but no clue how they stack up against this sub’s standards.

Audio technica ADG1X (Based off something between an ad700 & 900) are on sale on amazon UK for £109 at the moment. They have a good returns policy and imo this headset is amazing & used to retail for £250. Try them and return them if you don’t like them. You may save some money & convenience over these other options, and these will likely be better for gaming.

You won’t lose sound quality with the dongle. They are fairly easy to drive. And yes audio technica does make a similar version of the ad700x it’s called the adg1x. I used to have it and it sounds phenominal for gaming. It’s tuned to have a bit more bass. But you get the typical audio technica crap build quality and a foot long non removable rats tail cable. If you can find it under 150$ I’d say it’s worth it.

adg1x on amazon(not worth that price at all)

Best Buy rep mentioned their systems were showing $90.56.

This is what I’m using: –


The sound quality is noticeably better than the Astro A40, which is the headset I owned before I got this one, although there’s no surround sound out of the box. If you want surround sound you’d need to buy a MixAmp or whatever.

Headset wise, maybe a little over your price range but here’s what I have, it’s the best audio I’ve had out of any headset and super comfortable. Outside that you can’t go much wrong with Turtlebeach headsets although I do find many of them clamp my head a little too hard making it not so comfortable for long gaming sessions.

Mix audio from PC and PS4 into same headset, never tried this but some kind of powered mix amp would be needed but tbh its not something I’ve tried or would want to try.

Most AAA games are around 30-50gb in size, so with that in mind take the lower size as you might have some smaller indie games installed also so probably around 30’ish but at worst around 20 if all the games are massive. It’s a shame Sony haven’t gone the route of Xbox where you can just plug in an external 5TB USB3 drive and expand storage that way, that’s always seemed more sensible to me.

So taking it from the top:

  • Octacore CPU with great overclock potential, a proper motherboard to allow tweaking and an AIO to keep it cool through overclocking (along with it’s bracket). You’ve also got 16GB of high speed memory and the option to add more in the future if you find yourself needing it.

  • Storage wise, you have the ultrafast 500GB M.2 SSD. This is to install your operating system and a few games/apps you use frequently. It’ll make sure their loading times are non-existent. You have the 2TB HDD for mass storing files and media that don’t require speedy access (movies,music, photos, etc.).

  • GTX 1080 Ti. Pretty much the best GPU on the market right now.

  • Nice tempered glass case with an efficient 750W power supply from very reputable brands.

  • There are no 21-22″ monitors that fit your requirements. The smallest one is the S2417DG from Dell. It’s 23.8″ but supports 1440p, 165Hz and most importantly, G-Sync for the ultrafast and smooth gaming experience.

  • The K70 is the perfect keyboard for you. Blue switches, 100% anti-ghosting, backlit and sleek. There’s also the gaming mouse to go along with it. Both are also available in RGB if you’d prefer to have fancy, customized lighting.

  • These headsets are the best bang for the buck IMO. The sound quality on the cans and the mic are very good. If you want better ones, I’d suggest the Audio-Technica ATH-ADG1X. I’m using it’s predecessor – the ADG1 – and can vouch for it. They are top notch audiophile headphones with an incredibly mic.

Pick one you won’t go wrong with either. But if they’re too pricey then get the non gaming versions and pair with a mod mic

I been using them very good quality and comfortable because they are open back. I don’t why they are too pricey right now. I got them for $200 couple months ago.

Get a set of decent cans and never look back. If you want something you can wear for hours on end without hurting your ears or causing your ears to sweat I suggest a set of open back headphones. The open back design is not only comfortable but it really expands the sound stage and ups the presence factor 2 fold.

I have a pair of audio-technica ATH-ADG1s https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-ADG1X-High-Fidelity-Gaming-Headset/dp/B01AYZZP5U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474908441&sr=8-1&keywords=ATH-ADG1x

and the Sennheiser HD598 SE which are on sale right now.
