ATH M50x, or ATH-ADG1?
These headphones are both new, and I heard you can use the M50x on consles. Which, in audio quality are better? Are the ADG1s only $300 because they're "Gamer" headsets? Plus the ADG1s dont say they're compatible with the Xbox One/Xbox 360 When the Xbox One adapter comes out would I then be able to use the ADG1s, or pertaining to both headsets I would have to do some kind of audio trickery to make it work. I have Turtle Beaches, but I really want these and the ADG1s look amazing. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Audio and build quality for both headphones mentioned are very high, but (perceived) sonic quality can be very subjective, and is mostly determined by the user. In other words, how good any headphones sound would be determined by you. I can tell you that both headphones are engineered to sound excellent.
However, if you are a gamer, the ATH-AG1 / ATH-ADG1 will generally out-perform the ATH-M50x. If you are a studio engineer, the ATH-M50x will out-perform the ATH-AG1 / ATH-ADG1.
- As for your question regarding XBOX One use:
At this point, the ATH-ADG1 and ATH-AG1 are not compatible with the XBOX and XBOX ONE.
However, XBOX announced that they will be releasing an accessory called the "Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter" some time this year (2014). When that product is available, Audio-Technica has plans to re-test the above gaming headsets to re-check for compatibility with XBOX ONE. When the Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter is available, please wait for at least a few months after the product has been released to contact Audio-Technica United States, so that proper testing can be completed.
