New Features in a Premium Headset

But it gets even better with the latest version of the MMX 300. The audio specialists from Heilbronn, Germany, have given the premium MMX 300 a makeover and optimized numerous features. Decorative rings and yokes made of black anodized aluminum along with black velour ear pads add still more professional touches to the ear cups' sleek carbon design. You can tell just by looking--this headset is a born winner.

The new headband was designed by beyerdynamic's expert development team. The push-buttons on the top make it simple to clean and easy to replace. The 2.5 meter connection cable is made of rugged polyurethane material. It lies smoothly without getting tangled, and can handle even rough treatment--such as when the wire ends up under the wheels of a desk chair in the heat of an online battle.

The professional screw-locking jack plugs and a 3.5 to 6.35 mm jack socket adapter mean that you can use this high-end headset anywhere. Symbols and the colored insulating rings on the microphone and headphone jack plugs make it easier to connect them to your PC.

High Performance Audio with Closed Earcups for Passive Noise Isolation

The new model features the same amazing sound quality as the previous version. Essentially, the MMX 300 combines the qualities of hi-fi headphones with cockpit-tested headsets developed for private aviation. For example, the European Space Agency (ESA) uses the MMX 300's professional equivalent, the HS 800 Digital, to train astronauts. The closed design reduces ambient noise by 18 decibels. This high level of noise attenuation is an invaluable advantage at LAN parties.

Included Travel Case

Take the MMX 300 premium headset with you wherever you go in the included transport bag. The sturdy nylon carry and storage case makes the MMX 300 the perfect travel companion.

High Fidelity Condenser Microphone

The MMX 300 features a condenser microphone with a cardioid polar pattern for extraordinarily effective noise compensation. It reliably cancels out interfering outside noise so the people you're talking to only hear what you want them to. At the same time, the sound quality is so high that the microphone capsule is technically suitable for recording music.

With these updates, the MMX 300 will continue to set the standard for multimedia headsets--whether for gaming, skyping on your PC, or for relaxed music sessions.

For those that don't want to read a two-page review, here is a short summary of the pros and cons. Keep in mind that I own other audiophile quality headsets and that I have owned these for just under a year (so I have given them enough time to review unlike some who write review the day they arrive).


- Overall: Best sounding gaming headset you can buy. I essentially bought these because I didn't want to have to change headsets when I wanted to game, watch a movie, or listen to music on my home computer. I wanted something that would serve all of those purposes. What I didn't need: something small, something easy to travel with, and something with a detachable mic. I couldn't have asked for a better sounding headset (shouldn't even really call it a gaming headset as it doesn't sound like one).
- For gamers: I am a big COD/Battlefield fan, and these headsets are so amazing it is hard to put it into words. In COD:Black Ops, I can hear the direction of any enemy making noise. For example, if someone tries to creep up on me from behind, I can hear not only that they are behind me, but I can hear whether the footsteps are coming from directly behind me, slightly to the left, or slightly to the right. It is so good, that I have had people accuse me of hacking just because they can't hear it as well on their headsets even when cranked up.
- Also for gamers: You will be able to hear the quality (or lack thereof) in every game you play. The cheap sounding effects will sound cheap while the great sounds will sound fantastic! This is truly a plus because some games have such great sound-work that it is a shame to miss it with other headsets.
- For music lovers: While being audiophile quality, these headphones are also a little forgiving.

I ordered these after being disappointed by the Sennheiser PC350 headset. The sound coming out of the PC350s had a kind of plastic-y echo to it, like something you might hear from cheap desktop speakers. But the real problem with them was the mic -- it has a high-pass filter to reduce background noise and apparently my voice is too deep for it. I came through sounding clipped and choppy.

I searched around for reviews on the MMX 300s, but they're hard to find. A friend of mine has the DT 770s and I've always liked their sound, so I took a chance and bought these. I'm really glad I did.

First, the mic: The mic on the MMX 300s is extremely sensitive. I've had to turn off all software gain and reduce the input volume to avoid blowing my teammates eardrums out, not to mention distorting my voice. Consequently the mic will pick up a bit more noise than the PC350s but at least it will also pick up your voice, and will do an excellent job of it.

As to sound, the MMX 300s blow the PC350s out of the water, so I'll compare them to my other audiophile quality headphones, the Sennheiser HD600s and Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro.

Both the HD600s and MMX 300s have an amazingly flat frequency response. Both have a very wide, very articulate sound stage. The main difference between the two is in the high end and low end. The MMX 300s have what feels like a lot more bass response. Whereas the HD600s deliver the bass in a clear (some might say clinical) fashion the MMX 300s really let you feel it. The MMX 300s are also a touch on the bright side. Maybe slightly too bright for my taste but they're getting better as they break in.

Compared to the Super.fi 5 Pros the MMX 300s have improved mid-range response, are again a bit brighter, and deliver a wider sound stage.

Covers over ear fell off within 3 months. However, the biggest issue occurred with the MIC ceasing to work and a large crackling noise in the headset every time I move my head. Shouldn't be an issue right? It does state that there is a 5 year warranty on these $350 headsets. Well, apparently there is a transparent asterisk next to the 5 year warranty that states "Only Authorized beyerdynamic dealers can offer you a factory warranty." Yep, you guessed it--whomever I bought these brandnew from on Amazon was not on what I consider the "super secret unpublished list" that I'm guessing constitutes their cousins in the German Town this company resides.

BUYER BEWARE--While it states a 5 year warrant, there really is ZERO Warranty when I bought through Amazon and you're pissing your money down the drain when the headsets quickly become unusable. Classic Bait & Switch tactics.

I've been in the market for a true, audiophile grade set of headphones for a while, looking to upgrade from some Sennheiser 555s. The 555's are a great set of headphones with full and natural sound, but they were lacking clarity in the highs/mids and low-end punch. I don't consider myself to be an audiophile so I can't churn out technical terms, but I was simply trying to find the "it" sound, and these did it for me.

The highs and mids are crystal clear and are the cleanest I've heard in any set. I'd describe the bass to be punchy, clean (not muddy), and not overwhelming - perfect for bass heavy stuff without compromising any of the clarity.

A few things that I found after first using them:

- The tension is on the stiffer side, definitely more than my Sennheisers. I'm used to it now, but I can definitely see how these could fatigue larger heads after a while.

- As others mentioned, the frequency response is very flat, which I was looking for. I spent a good amount of time playing around with my EQ settings to get the perfect sound, especially in the lower end, which is not very thumpy by default, but can be made so with the right settings

- They are much brighter than any set I've ever used, and it took me a while to get used to it. But I'm glad they are this way, since it really helps to bring out nuances in music I wouldn't notice with any other set.

Oh and yes, I do primarily use these for gaming, and they work extremely well with virtual surround processors (I use a Turtle Beach DSS). Skyrim is more immersive than ever =)
