YBLTV Product Review – Beyerdynamic MMX 300 Premium Gaming Headset (2nd Generation)
Beyerdynamic has something for everyone when it comes to headphones. This time, they set their sights on the gamer with a little more discerning preferences. Let’s check out the MMX 300, 2nd Generation.
Come In From The Dark
Every gamer knows that a good set of headphones can make or break your gaming experience. Depending on the game, this may even cause you to waiver, and suffer a loss rather than achieve victory. None of us want that, and beyerdynamic is more than happy to help out in this regard. Enter the MMX 300 Premium Gaming Headset, 2nd Generation.
Middle Of Nowhere
High quality German engineering brings you some of the most comfortable headphones you will ever experience. The MMX 300 offers a detachable cable so you can adjust whether you are fighting on the console or PC. The flexible microphone extends from the left ear cup, so it is out of the way when you don’t need it, but so close when you decide to call in for backup.
“With beyerdynamic’s MMX 300 on, I don’t worry about what is going on around me, only what is in front of me, ” – Patrick Mackey, @mackeyp42, YBLTV Writer / Reviewer
The MMX 300 comes packaged in Beyerdynamic’s DT Hard Case, a molded teardrop-shaped case to protect your investment on the way to your next gaming marathon. A mesh pouch on the inside is perfect for holding short cables, or that 1/4″ adapter when you decide you want to plug in to your stereo deck for a little relaxation. I loved carrying my headphones in these. Even if no one else saw them, I knew I had some quality headphones, and was going to enjoy hearing everything I did, while not missing out on anything that did not cut through. The joy for me of the circumaural headphones by beyerdynamic, is that they block out a good amount of ambient noise. Now, I realize nothing will be as good as the old ‘cone of silence’ of an old TV series, but beyerdynamic comes close. With the MMX 300 on, I don’t worry about what is going on around me, only what is in front of me.
