Each year, gamers of all platforms and genres come together at the PAX East festival in Boston to discover new gaming and streaming tech and trends, discuss strategies and tactics, and, of course, play video games! Our team is excited to be returning to the conference for another year in a row and displaying a variety of gaming gear.
Here is a preview of how A-T is stepping up the game at PAX East 2020. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience three active gaming areas that include real-time PC and console environments to test gaming headsets. In addition, there will be a dedicated streaming audio section, where visitors can test microphones and “live” setups with headphones to hear the mics first-hand.
All products listed below are on exhibit at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Booth 27011 from today, February 27 through Sunday, March 1, 2020. If you’re visiting the show, be sure to stop by the A-T booth to check out our gaming headsets, accessories, and other audio equipment in person!
Gaming Headsets & Headphones
At PAX East 2020, A-T is displaying its latest gaming headsets. Within the showcase are the ATH-G1 Premium Gaming Headset and the ATH-G1WL Premium Wireless Gaming Headset. “Hear The Win” loud and clear with the ATH-G1’s studio-quality sound. The headset’s strong, lightweight construction, and breathable headband pad and ear pads keep players comfortable, no matter how long they game. The attached 2.0m (6.6′) cable (terminated with a gold-plated stereo mini-plug) includes a simple volume control and locking microphone mute switch for convenient, one-hand operation.
The ATH-G1WL headset is designed for those who want to take full command of their computer gaming experiences. 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 premium ATH-AG1X closed-back and ATH-ADG1X open-back high-fidelity gaming headsets (SRP: US$249.00 each) deliver a spacious sonic environment that draws participants completely into the playing field. The headsets feature 53 mm large-diameter drivers for impactful sound and include a gooseneck microphone with volume control.
The BPHS1 Broadcast Stereo Headset was created for on-air news and sports broadcasting; yet many of its features make it ideal for eSports announcing and streaming as well. This rugged stereo headset offers natural, highly intelligible and focused vocal reproduction, closed-back circumaural (around-the-ear) ear cups to seal out background noise, and a high-output dynamic microphone mounted on a flexible gooseneck boom.
The ATH-M40x and ATH-M50x from A-T’s M-Series professional monitor headphones line are known for their incredibly accurate audio monitoring across an extended frequency range. The ATH-M40x and the ATH-M50x are praised by top audio engineers and pro audio reviewers year after year. The critically acclaimed ATH-M50x provide an unmatched experience for the most critical audio professionals, offering large aperture drivers, sound isolating ear cups, and a robust construction.
Harnessing the legendary ATH-M50x studio sound for an exhilarating wireless listening experience, the ATH-M50xBT utilizes Bluetooth® wireless technology and 45 mm large-aperture drivers with rare-earth magnets and copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils for exceptional clarity and deep, accurate bass response. The ATH-M50xBT brings the coveted sonic signature of the ATH-M50x to a wireless, on-the-go design.
The ATH-SR30BT Wireless Over-Ear headphones deliver the exceptionally pure audio of Sound Reality in a convenient wireless design and offer up to 70 hours of continuous use. Equipped with a mic and controls in the left earcup, the ATH-SR30BT makes it easy to answer calls, adjust volume and handle music playback on smartphones and other devices. The soft memory foam earpads and headband ensure a comfortable fit, and, when not in use, the headphones fold flat for easy storage and portability.
A-T’s ATH-ANC100BT QuietPoint® Wireless In-Ear Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones give users greater freedom and listening pleasure in areas of high ambient noise. Featuring a convenient pendant-type design with mic and controls, these headphones make it easy to answer calls and control music playback from connected devices. The ATH-ANC500BT and ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint® Wireless Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones combine Audio-Technica’s active noise-cancelling technology with Bluetooth® wireless technology and convenient touch and swipe controls built into the earcup.
The ATH-CK3TW Truly Wireless In-Ear Headphones with Bluetooth® 5.0 technology come with a portable charging case, and are even equipped with smart sensors that detect when you remove the headphones from ears and when you put them back in, automatically pausing and playing the audio again, so you never miss a beat.
Both the ATGM1-USB Gaming Desktop Microphone and the ATGM2 Detachable Boom Microphone are on display in our PAX East booth this year. The ATGM1-USB is the perfect tool for communicating online with fellow gamers, as well as for streaming and VoIP applications. The cardioid condenser gooseneck microphone provides high-quality directional pickup that can be easily positioned to capture the speaker’s voice. The ATGM2 lets you convert your favorite pair of headphones into a full-fledged headset for gaming, streaming, and VoIP use. The boom’s small base mounts permanently to the headphone housing, allowing you to install and remove the boom mic as you like. Both gaming microphones work to reject ambient noise and reduce breath noise, so your voice comes through loud and clear.
In addition to the above microphones, PAX East attendees will also be able to browse our selection of 20 Series microphones, as well as their bundles. Audio-Technica’s stringent quality and consistency standards set the AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone apart from other mics in its class, making it the standard for affordable side-address studio condensers. The versatile AT2050 Multi-pattern Condenser Microphone provides consistent, superior performance in switchable cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-of-eight polar pattern settings.
So, if you’re headed to the 2020 PAX East exhibit at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, make sure to stop by the A-T booth (#27011) and see all this great gear for yourself!
