Every detail of the GHS 1s has been designed to deliver the ultimate gaming experience. A 6mm, cardioid (directional) boom microphone filters out most background noise, providing a clear voice signal for precision communication. The GHS 1s also come equipped with an in-line volume control and microphone on/off switch, reducing the need to interact with the game console or other source and allowing you to focus on what matters - your gaming.
Passive noise reduction.
The closed-back design of the GHS 1s not only brings an added level of comfort to your gaming experience, it significantly enhances passive noise reduction, effectively sealing in the sounds that matter most - the game's. Combined with the supercardioid characteristics of the directional boom microphone, the GHS 1s allow gamers to immerse themselves in an ambient noise-free environment and to take gaming to the next level.
Total performance. Total comfort.
Supersoft ear pads and the GHS 1s' compact, lightweight design combine to reduce ear fatigue and provide a performance fit that's never too warm or tight. The patented AKG® 3-D Axis2 folding mechanism in the headband not only adds to the GHS 1s' performance fit but also allows the headphones to fold away flat, so you can take the long-wearing comfort of the GHS 1s with you, wherever you game.
Unmistakable AKG® quality sound.
Engineering the GHS 1s to deliver a portable, comfortable, immersive, high-output gaming experience means nothing unless our first emphasis is - as it has always been - on the quality of sound. The GHS 1s have been designed for high-output digital sound reproduction with the uncompromising craftsmanship and innovative engineering that have made AKG® headphones the studio standard for more than 60 years and will make the GHS 1s the gaming standard for years to come.
So good, we won an award for it.
The GHS 1s are a winner of the coveted 2010 Red Dot Design Award for product design. Since 1955, this international product design prize has been awarded by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany, to "trendsetting products of the highest quality." From the Design Zentrum Web site come these accolades:
"The GHS 1 is a pair of headphones for ambitious computer gamers who set value on the advantages of a technically mature product with superior sound characteristics. It shows a coherent design underlining its high performance and value. In addition, the product offers a high degree of wearing comfort, for it has a low weight and guarantees good ventilation, resulting from the use of materials permeable to air and heat. Thanks to the patented folding mechanism, the headset can be transported easily and in a space-saving way. In addition to a wide frequency range and degree of efficiency, the headset includes a 6mm full-range microphone with supercardioid characteristics. With these headphones, the sophisticated gamer does not have to accept any compromises in terms of performance or design."
