Like many others, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x has been my go-to pair of headphones for years. Add a mod mic, and you have a great, if not slightly cumbersome, gaming headset. So when Audio-Technica announced the ATH-G1WL, a wireless gaming headset that looks similar to the M50x with a detachable microphone, I was excited to check it out and see how it compares to my old trusty standard. Check out the video below for more and to hear how the mic sounds.
Audio-Technica is a brand we all know and love when it comes to quality headphones. Just yesterday, Audio-Technica announced two new gaming headsets to bring its studio-quality sound to PC and consoles with the ATH-G1WL and ATH-G1. What do these headsets bring that the competition doesn’t? Well, keep reading to find out more.
Audio-Technica showed up at CES 2019 with major additions to its QuietPoint wireless headphones lineup. Noise cancellation was certainly a big deal for AT this year and its new flagship over-ears are leading the way with the company’s most advanced system yet. Head below for all the details on AT’s new Bose QuietComfort competitors and the rest of the new lineup.
If you’ve never heard of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x (or M50x for short), then you probably live under a rock. Or have never watched tech YouTube channels. But, either way, if you’ve not heard of them they’re a pair of Audio-Technica’s best-selling headphones. I own them, many tech YouTubers own them, and they’re fairly good when it comes to listening to or monitoring audio. But, they have a 3.5mm cable.
In this day and age, even the iPad Pro is losing its 3.5mm headphone jack. Since your choice seems to be either join the #DongleLife or buy wireless, Audio-Technica wants to make the choice easier if you like its iconic M50x headphones. In come the M50xBT, with 40-hours of battery life and more, these are sure to become top-sellers in no time.

If you’re looking for something different, these A-T’s are a great place to start. Rated 4.5/5 stars by over 100 Amazon customers.

Engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise, these in-ear headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.). Electronics in the control box create a noise-cancelling wave that is 180 degrees out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser: it cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear.
