Audio-Technica ATH-GDL3 review

There's no fancy RGB lighting here - instead it's all about striking blue highlights - but that pared-back design is decent looking and lightweight. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This headset might not be much to look at, but it delivers excellent comfort and great sound. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The headset has quite shallow earcups, but they're large enough to cover the ears and the material breathes nicely so you don't get too hot. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Along with the lightweight design, these earcups make the headset comfortable enough to wear all day. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Audio-Technica claims the ATH-GDL3 is a "high-fidelity" headset, but doesn't specify to what degree. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are some small issues though. That volume wheel is too small and a pain to adjust, while the mute button has no light or audio cue. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You do get some nicely convenient cables though, including a longer three-metre one for use on PC. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Both cables are detachable and swappable, so you can choose which to use. It's also compatible with PC and console. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The ATH-GDL3 offers a nice wide and open sound, but still has great bass. It also sports a surprisingly capable mic. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
All told, this is a comfortable gaming headset with a lot to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed using it for long gaming sessions and more. Especially at this price. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
