Audio-Technica introduces two new hi-fi gaming headsets

Audio-Technica has launched the ATH-GL3 closed-back high-fidelity gaming headset and the ATH-GDL3 open-back high-fidelity gaming headset.

Combining premium materials with a lightweight design (230g), the ATH-GL3 provides comfort to users who are gaming, listening to music or taking calls.

Its closed-back design delivers sound isolation, blocking out surrounding noise to create a more immersive experience and cause less distractions. Inside the closed-back housings are large 45mm drivers that give high-resolution audio with clear detail. Again, its lightweight design (220g) allows users to comfortably game, listen to music or take calls.

The ATH-GDL3 open-back high-fidelity gaming headset has a lot of similarities to the closed-back version. The open-back design delivers a spacious yet immersive listening experience, allowing users to localise sounds within an expansive sound field.

For full user control on both headsets, a volume control dial and a mute switch controlling the professional-quality boom microphone has been built into the left earcup.


The headsets both include two cables: a 3m cable with 3.5mm mic and headphone plugs for connecting to computers, and a 1.2m cable with a 3.5mm TRRS plug for connecting to PS5, Xbox Series X, and other gaming consoles. The two cables and the mic are detachable.

The ATH-GL3 and ATH-GDL3 models are compatible with PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, laptops, PCs and other devices with a standard 3.5mm TRRS headset connector or with a separate mic input and headphone output.

Both models are available now. The ATH-GL3 is priced at RRP £99.99 / €119 / $99. The ATH-GDL3 is priced at RRP £119.99 / €139 / $129.
