Beyerdynamic MMX 300 2nd Generation Gaming Headphones


Beyerdynamic MMX 300 2nd Generation Gaming Headphones


  Beyerdynamic's original MMX 300 premium headset has enjoyed an excellent reputation among gamers and reviewers for years. Whether listening or speaking, the headset is seen as a reference when it comes to crystal¬clear sound and maximum speech intelligibility. Could there be anything left to improve on with this successful model? Well actually yes or so the beyerdynamic engineers decided as they launched into the details with their customary diligence. The result: a 2nd generation MMX 300 (199,- EUR) that again sets new standards.


Flexible Cable Concept For PC And Console 
The connection cable on the new MMX 300 is made from the same robust polyurethane as its predecessor. Except that it is now detachable. The cable thus not only withstands pressure exerted by the castors on office chairs rolling over it, it also survives someone standing on it in the heat of battle: rather than tear the headset from the wearer’s head, the connector coupling releases effortlessly from the housing.

The 1.2 meter long basic cable is ideal for connection to the controller of a gaming console such as the PS4 or Xbox One. It also performs very well on laptops, smartphones or tablets. The remote control in the cable controls important functions such as volume with ease and mutes the microphone when privacy is required. Because gaming PCs are often positioned beneath the desk, the audio specialist from Heilbronn, Germany, supplies a special extension cable. This cable doubles the range of movement to 2.4 meters and adapts the four-pin connector to the separate microphone and headphone jacks of the sound card.

Uncompromising Sound In Stylish Housing
The new matt black housing colour can be regarded as a visual understatement. That’s because the MMX 300 is still a fully featured HiFi headphone with a cockpit-proven microphone. It takes its construction from pilot headsets, which Beyerdynamic developed for the private aviation sector. The closed design attenuates ambient noise by a sensational 18dB – of immeasurable value at turbulent LAN parties.

Added to this is a tonal precision that gives players a critical strategic advantage. Whether creeping steps or rustling in the bushes as the enemy approaches from the rear, the MMX 300 (2nd generation) brings out the finest details that cannot be heard with other headsets.

The headset also works outstandingly in the opposite direction. Its cardioid true condenser microphone transmits speech so clearly that it seems like online gaming team members are in the same room. Every command hits home, no word is missed, because the noise cancellation reliably suppresses distracting ambient noise. This is also noticeable when streaming games on Twitch TV and other online portals – where viewers should be able to understand the commentary of the gamer as effectively as possible.

Beyerdynamic Manufaktur Quality
The indestructible construction of the MMX 300 (2nd generation) with sprung steel headbands and solid aluminum yokes has always been beyond any possible doubt. The new model also meets these high quality standards. Like all premium headphones from Beyerdynamic, it is handcrafted at the company’s headquarters in Heilbronn, Germany.

The "Made in Germany" principle offers the advantage that the MMX 300 is also available made-to-measure. The unique Beyerdynamic Manufaktur allows individualists to custom-design their headsets and adapt them to suit their personal preferences. Personalized name engraving is just as much part of the package as the different ear pad covers and housing surfaces – ranging from a black high gloss look for gentleman agents to a bulletproof carbon look.

All in all, beyerdynamic’s best headset has just got a little better again. Whether for gaming, Skyping or relaxing and listening to music. That is the undoubted claim of its reference status. 
Visitors to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) can see for themselves from 5 to 8 January 2017 at the beyerdynamic booth (South Hall, No. 20639) in Las Vegas. The MMX 300 (2nd generation) will be available from February 2017.
