The Japanese company Audio-Technica is known and loved above all for its professional audio products. Recently, however, the manufacturer also ventured into the gaming sector. With the ATH-G1WL, Audio-Technica has introduced its first wireless gaming headset.
Audio-Technica’s ATH-G1WL, like most other wireless headsets, does not use RGB lighting, but the headset is also very restrained outside of RGB lighting. The slim design allows for a low weight. Gamers gamble for a long time, so the ATH-G1WL should convince with high comfort and clear sound. Will this succeed? Is it worth the price of over 200 euros? You’ll find out in this test report!
Scope of Delivery
The Audio-Technica ATH-G1WL comes with a comparatively small package for a premium headset. In addition to the headphones, the package also includes a detachable microphone, a micro-USB charging cable and the USB stick for the wireless connection. Unfortunately, it is not possible to operate the headset with a jack cable, so such a cable is missing.
