Audio-Technica, which is recognised for producing high-quality high-fidelity headsets, has unveiled two gaming-specific versions today. The ATH-GL3 and ATH-GDL3 are two variants of the ATH-GL3. Both of these products are made to feel as light as air.
Both variants are “extremely lightweight,” with the GL3 weighing 230 grammes and the GDL3 weighing 220 grammes. The Logitech G Pro X Wireless weighs 369g, the EPOS GSP 670 weighs 449g, while the Master & Dynamic MG20 weighs roughly 310g. In recent months, three of our favourite high-fidelity gaming headphones.
When Audio-Technica claims that these gaming headphones are very light, it means it. That lightweight construction will also help with comfort over lengthy bouts of gaming. Both versions include detachable boom microphones, which is always a plus if you prefer to keep hydrated and/or munch while playing. Because the mic can be readily removed when you aren’t using it for voice chat. That is, it isn’t in the way.
The Audio-Technica Gaming Headsets Come in An Open-Back And Closed-Back Design
Everyone has a preference for the tone of their headset audio. That is also true for gamers who want to wear headphones to enhance their gaming experience. As a result, Audio-Technica provides the player with several options. By providing an open-back and closed-back option.
The ATH-GDL3 is the open-back version, with a larger soundstage. This allows you to hear ambient sounds while remaining engrossed in your game’s soundtrack. On the other hand, since the sound seeps out a bit, it makes it simpler for other parties to hear sounds from your headset. That’s the cost of doing business.
Choose the ATH-GL3, which has a closed-back design, if you like a more confined experience. It will be somewhat more immersive, and you may be able to hear every little detail of what is happening in the game. This is especially true for games that primarily depend on in-game spatial awareness.
However, this effectively silences all outside sounds. If you like to be more aware of your surroundings in real life, the ATH-GDL3 is a better match. Both headsets are available in black and white, with the ATH-GDL3 costing $129 and the ATH-GL3 costing $99 respectively. Both headsets work with PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and any other device having a 3.5mm TRRS headset connection or separate mic input and headphone output ports.
