It’s a brand new day, and we are going to review another great pair of headphones with the MMX 300, 2. Generation, or second generation. The new MMX 300 is a professional gaming headset which is “designed for champions”, and you can read our review of the first generation here.
The MMX 300 has some pretty huge earcups that are made to completely block out all sound, which makes a lot of sense as they were originally developed as a headset for the private aviation industry. That doesn’t surprise me in the least, honestly.
So yes, the sound is quite good. Right now, I’m just using them to listen to something on Netflix, and I can hear a lot of minutia in the sound. I can’t help but think the sound would be much weaker if I was using my regular earbuds.
You might notice the microphone on it, and the gooseneck is quite flexible. There is a high-quality condenser on it, and it is made so any ambient noise is kept out thanks to its cardioid polar pattern and pop shield.
There is also a remote control that is integrated into the cable, and it is very helpful for in case you want to mute the mic, not to mention accepting a phone call. The volume control is also there as well, so you know this is going to be good.
There is only one bad thing about this product. If you go to the Beyerdynamic website, it says that the MMX 300 2. Generation is temporarily unavailable as noise interferences may occur in certain applications. I didn’t find any applications as yet, but I am not certain if I will find it. It is available with 299 EUR.
