  • Beyerdynamic MMX 300 Professional Gaming Headset 2nd Gen Review



    As PC enthusiasts we often spend hours researching parts and agonizing over upgrades to get that extra edge when it comes to performance. Still in many builds the audio, most often headphones, are an afterthought.  A good pair of headphones like the Beyerdynamic MMX 300 Professional Gaming Headset will not only bring a good game to life, they can also provide that competitive edge when it comes to gaming. 

    Beyerdynamic may not be a familiar name to many gamers but they are one of the oldest manufacturers of high-end headphones with a solid reputation amongst audiophiles.  The MMX 300s was built to bridge a gap and please both serious gamers and audiophiles alike. As the most expensive gaming headphones in the lab, let’s find out if they measure up! 

    Hand crafted in Germany, the MMX 300 is based on the design of the popular HS 400 SIGNUM Aviation Headset and is now in its second generation.  This new generation of MMX 300 adds a detachable cable and a much requested inline control box with Mic on/off, push to mute, and volume controls. 

    Not surprisingly Beyerdynamic avoids the current trend of LED lighting and flashy colors and offers the MMX 300 headset in a black on black color style very similar to their high end audio offerings.  For those craving some flash can step down to the Beyerdynamic Custom Game Interactive Headset which are targeted at the console crowd.
