Excerpt: When Audio-Technica, known for their microphones and audiophile headphones, released a gaming headset, I knew it would be great. The ATH-AG1 is their first entry into the gaming market. Let's see what they bring to the table.
Are they good? Yes. $300 good? Not by a long shot.

Summary: Okay, take this with a grain of salt. I have been an avid user of Audio Technica products for years. I have had the ATH-A700 (which is discontinued) and now the ATH-A700X(these replaced the A700). So here are a few things right off the bat. These are expensive.
Summary: Spending $400 on a headset is no small task. For that same amount of cash you could buy a good GPU, CPU, Case...really, you could buy about any top of the line computer component for that much money (GPU not withstanding).
