Overview

Hear the win! The ATH-G1WL is a premium wireless headset designed for serious gamers who wants to take full command of their computer gaming experience. Operating in the 2.4 GHz range (outside TV bands), the ATH-G1WL lets you communicate with fellow gamers and a streaming audience without encountering any lag or interference. 

The headset features specially tuned, large-diameter 45 mm drivers that bring studio-quality sound to every detail of a game’s virtual environment. And with its closed-back earcups and switchable 7.1 surround sound, the ATH-G1WL is designed to take you even deeper into the action. 

The headset’s detachable, flexible boom microphone offers a highly directional pickup to separate your voice from ambient noise and provide crystal-clear in-game communication. Mute, volume, and surround sound controls are conveniently located on the rim of the earcup for easy access, and there’s even a selectable mic monitor function that lets you hear your own voice through the headset when desired. 

The ATH-G1WL has an internal lithium polymer battery that provides approximately 15 hours of continuous use on a full charge. But if power runs low, you need only connect the headset to your computer with the included USB charging cable to go right on gaming. The headset’s strong, lightweight construction and breathable headband pad and earpads (which detach for easy replacement) will see you comfortably through the longest gaming sessions. 

The ATH-G1WL comes with a USB Type-A wireless transceiver (that plugs into compatible Mac and Windows computers), spare earpads, and a windscreen. 

Compatible with laptops, PCs, and Macs (High Sierra, Mojave) with USB Type-A connector.

Current Best in Class Wireless Gaming Headset
the last review that gave this headset a 1 is an idiot as they do not understand how wireless headsets have to work. their currently is not a Better WIRELESS option for a gaming headset which as good of noise detection and mic quality. I have personally tested multiple high end WIRELESS headsets. including adding a separated boom mic to high end audio headsets. the issue is those headsets dont connect with PC's with a high frequency to have a quick refresh rate like this does. the battery life does suck but that normal for a true wireless headset. it lasts me 14 hours sessions and works when charging. the downside is micro usb cable falls out easy when charging.
i tried to Astro A50's those have so many issues now that logic tec owns them they are not worth it.
steel series headsets are very uncountable and the mic qualify on them suck. they wont fit anyone with a larger head. These do.

one thing i would like to see for this headset is a stronger receiver to help lower any interference with Wifi. this inst a issue with this headset but a issue with any high connection speed wireless headset none bluetooth headset.

Don't Buy! Buy a wired in headset if quality matters!
I bought this product after buying the ATH-M50x headset thinking they would be great sound quality. They suck in almost every aspect that matters. The sound quality sucks, the battery life sucks, the port to charge the headset sucks, and you expensive for what they are. Mic quality seemed okay and they are pretty comfortable to wear but those don't mean much when you way the pro's and con's. Contacted support and they didn't help or change anything because the product overall sucks. I was almost an audio-technica fan for life but this product put a bad taste in my mouth that they would even release these for that price. I guess I have to eat the money and buy something better.
