Audio-Technica is one of the top brands when it comes to headsets and audio products in general. Recently they have launched two high-fidelity gaming headsets: the ATH-GL3 and ATH-GDL3. These new headphones have both open-back and closed-back design options to provide users with a better sound experience.
With a weight of about 230gms, these headsets are quite lightweight and can be very comfortable for longer use during gaming.
Audio-Technica is known to bring crisp Japanese analogue audio and it achieves the goal with these gaming headphones. As per Audio-Technica, the features of these headphones are inspired by the “power of the earth and the spirit of air.”
The ATH-GL3 gaming headset comes with a closed-back design which helps in sound isolation and provides a better and deeper listening experience while you are gaming.
On the other hand, the ATH-GDL3 comes with an open-back design so that users get an immersive listening experience and have more space around their heads.
Both of the headphones come with large-diameter 45mm drivers which are more than capable of delivering premium quality sound.
Another important aspect of gaming is communicating with other players. For that, these headphones come with a flexible and detachable microphone that has a high directional pickup. So the players can effectively communicate with each out in crystal-clear audio.
The control options for the microphone to control volume and mute the mic are placed on the left earcup of the headphones.
As far as the compatibility goes, these headphones can be used with all of the popular gaming consoles including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo Switch Lite. The headphones are also compatible with laptops, PCs, and other devices with a standard 3.5 mm TRRS headset connector or with a separate mic input and headphone output.
If we talk about the pricing then the closed-back ATH-GL3 is priced at USD 99 and the open-back ATH-GDL3 is priced at USD 129.
