Studio Quality, Super Comfortable/Light, Awesome Value
Not everybody will like the tuning! If you want generic consumer/audiophile tuning you should consider the M50X or MSR7B. These are essentially the same tuning as the M70X, except they are bass boosted.
If you've never used flat studio tuned headphones before, you will find them weird, maybe even feel they are bad at first, but the reason they chose the M70X as a base is you can hear absolutely everything. In gaming you will hear footsteps and subtle noises you couldn't notice before with good clarity, the increased bass exists to make them sound less flat without taking away that clarity, to decent success.
However, the clarity is what can make these sound "bad". Devices using loudness normalisation you may be able to make out the boosted noise and artefacts (Keep volume at 50% and instead use the headset's built in control). Devices upscaling to above 16-bit 48000hz (eg: to 24-bit+ or 96000hz+) you may notice a reduction in quality.
Consumer friendly options like the M50X will take anything and make it "sound nice", but the M70X will instead give you clear raw true output but you also get to hear any accumulation of flaws and misconfigurations in processing the audio and the original recording.
The ATH-G1 is definitely the M70X but with bass, lighter, cheaper, more comfortable, and includes a very good broadcast quality directional microphone. Competitive gamers looking for an advantage: these are the best headphones you can buy for the price. Those comfortable tweaking audio settings that have considered the flat studio style M70X, these are better value and can sound nicer. For others, these headphones can simply be "too good", don't "smooth out" poor audio output, and simply take getting used to.
The only flaw is the volume control messes with the quality/tuning when set max or really low, but easily avoidable and could be a one off fault.
For the price this is the best headset some will ever buy, for some it can be the worst, but at least now you know why!

My favorite headset ever
This is the best gaming headset I've ever owned. As a huge fan of the Hyper X cloud 2's, and the ATH-m50x's. when both of those headsets eventually broke I got these. Best headphone purchase I think I've ever made. I've been using these for over 2 years now for all of my personal audio needs and have still had absolutely no problems with them, the cable is super durable, they're lightweight so I don't get uncomfortable, and they double as fantastic music listening headphones without looking like some weirdo wearing a random gaming headset in public.
