[...]

The usual version of this headset is very consistent and of a high quality. As already mentioned, you can build your own MMX 300 online via the MMX 300 manufactory.

[...]

Basically, the headset construction does not differ from the regular variant. We chose white and red for our version and especially in the manufactory there are numerous colours and materials available. Piano lacquer for the ear cups, a text imprint on the side or velours for the ear pads. You get a lot of features for your money.

[...]

The headset is supplied in a cardboard package and the MMX 300 itself is securely packed in a pouch, which is a nice gimmick.

[...]

When you put on the headset, you realise quite quickly that you have quality on your ears. You can wear the MMX 300 for hours, without feeling an unpleasant pressure or something like that due to the soft ear pads and headband. When wearing the MMX 300, you will quickly notice that you hardly hear ambient noise through the headset, therefore you hear the sound quite isolated from the outside world. The question raised is if you can use this high end device with your Xbox One what we can definitely confirm.

[...]

In accordance with this price class you receive a very clear and high-quality sound. The bass is not so concise to hear, but it is very well added into the acoustic overall picture. The voice reproduction is also very clear due to the microphone. No matter if you are watching a movie or playing a game the performance for your ears is always of a very high quality and powerful.
Conclusion: At first sight the price for the MMX 300 may be frightening, no matter which version you choose. If you, however, wear this headset you will quickly notice that this headset is worth every cent. The finish is of high quality, the appearance discrete but nevertheless precious and the sound is convincing throughout. Everybody who wants to acquire a quality headset that lasts for many years should have a look. Those who prefer a more individual model can purchase the Manufactory version.

After connecting the beyerdynamic MMX 300 to my computer via a USB sound card, I played some music “Maid with a Flaxen Hair” using Windows to see if there was a reaction. It gave me goose bumps! This headset delivers an incredible audio experience. But even during gaming, the headset is absolutely convincing. In general, it is almost impossible to find criticism of the MMX 300. The ear cushions are just big enough for my ears, but never uncomfortable at any time. What remains is the high price (... ). However, I can recommend the MMX 300 without restriction for every gamer, as well as any music or movie fan, because it definitely is worth its high price!

Although the MMX 300 weighs almost 400 grams, the high comfort cannot be denied.

[...]

Even after several hours of using the MMX 300 there is no uncomfortable pressure. It is not too warm around our ears either. Furthermore, the workmanship definitely meets the price, because nothing creaks or rattles.

[...]

Mainly, the sound, the headset (...) does not fail. The different sound ranges are professionally tuned and of a high precision. The dynamic is unparalleled and the playback of explosions, fine orchestra plays and films is extremely detailed, too. The ambience is very impressive, for example enemies actually can be located by their steps - the good noise isolation is also very positive in this case. The quality of the voices transmitted by the microphone is very good.

[...]

Of course the MMX 300 Manufactory is much more expensive than its gaming competitors, but the headset is definitely worth the price. The sound is impressive, the high standard of workmanship and the customisation options are extensive. Initially the clear sound needs getting used to, but after a short time we would not want to miss it. This, however, also depends a lot on the audio hardware used (i.e. the output device) and the audio material. Beyerdynamic supplies the headset with an extended warranty of five years.

Big time! This headset ensures a pure enjoyment of listening. Music, gaming sound, films, everything sounds a lot better. Clear highs, extremely strong bass, for sound enthusiasts it hardly leaves any desire open. Due to the excellent attenuation, ambient noise is hardly perceived.

[...]

Thanks to the velours pads the headset is absolutely comfortable.

Those who have money will not find a better headset on the market.

If you are looking for a headset with the best microphone for gaming headsets with a great sound and fantastic comfort then beyerdynamic is the right choice, because it has all the properties mentioned above.

[...]

Furthermore, we have never worn a headset that adapts as perfectly to the head as the MMX 300 and never becomes uncomfortable even after many hours. Regarding the quality, beyerdynamic provides the usual top quality. (…) Furthermore, it should be mentioned that both headband pad and ear pads can be replaced, when they show signs of wear and tear and the warranty is in total 5 years – great.  

[...]

Most of you, however, will be interested in the sound and here again beyerdynamic proves its strength and experience. Let’s start with the area that immediately shows all weaknesses of a headphone, because the different genres cover all ranges of sound – music. What can we say, the MMX 300 can keep up fantastically. The highs and mids are marvellously balanced and none of them is predominant. We used the MMX 300 for listening to the different genres from classic to house and the MMX 300 did not show any weakness. The voices sound crystal clear, the highs appear warm and the mids are balanced (…). Never before had we worn a gaming headset that did its job so good when listening to the music and the same applies when it comes to gaming.

[...]

The explosions are powerful, the shots sound authentic, the engines sound as if you stand directly next to them, in short the whole world becomes one.

[...]

(...) As mentioned before, here you will probably have the best microphone of all the gaming headsets. The cardioid condenser microphone is almost the same as the one which is used for beyerdynamic headsets in private aircrafts.

[...]

I have had more than 7 headsets, but none of them can compete with beyerdynamic regarding the sound. In my opinion the MMX 300 is currently the absolute reference of gaming headsets when it comes to the sound. Somebody told me once that a good (hi-fi) headphone can handle all areas such as music, film and gaming, and this describes the MMX 300 best.

What has changed with the model from 2012? First of all the modified design catches the eye. Compared to others the headset is outstanding and leaves a noble impression. The headband is provided with press studs. When wearing the headset for a longer period of time the headband will not put pressure on the head.

[...]

(...) In the tests, beyerdynamic supplies the best sound quality.  Even more, the MMX 300 version 2012 does not need to hide itself against quality rating of the reproduction properties. (...) The headset supplies a good quality over the whole frequency spectrum.  In all frequency bands there is a high degree of differentiation for the benefit of fine details. Voices can be clearly heard. Even with higher levels and deep frequencies there is no noise, the processing is without any deficiencies.

[...]

The re-designed MMX 300 of the 2012 version can convince with a consistent good performance.

Thanks to the silky soft circumaural ear pads and the enormous comfort of wearing the MMX 300 is the most comfortable product in our test. Although the weight of 380 g is much higher than of competitive models, you hardly notice the headset. The MMX 300 eliminates ambient noise almost completely. The plastic-spring steel design is of great workmanship.

[...]

The microphone is also great. A noise cancellation ensures a clear transmission of speech.

[...]

The beyerdynamic MMX 300 provides an excellent overall performance and is suitable for hi-fi enjoyment.

Made of aluminium, leather and only a little bit of plastic, the headset knows how to convince. Due to replaceable, soft velours pads and a good padded headband as well as a single-sided cable, the comfort of wearing is excellent.

[...]

The sound of the MMX 300 is very good. The headset creates a wide stage and reproduces the entire frequency spectrum clean and precise without any distortions. Pure highs, solid mids and a rich bass create a realistic sound. A clear locability also creates a convincing gaming and movie experience. The microphone operates clean and clear and suppresses disturbing noise. Basic noise is hardly audible.
Conclusion upper class: The beyerdynamic MMX 300 headset is the winner of this top category.

Another question of the construction is the open or closed design. An open design facilitates air circulation to the ears, what is quite convenient during long sessions. But it also lets you perceive your surroundings and vice versa. Especially in quiet environments this may cause trouble for others, which will be a less immersive experience for you. Top models such as the beyerdynamic MMX 300 achieve this compromise: Due to a special foam material the ears do not start hurting even though noise attenuation does also exist.

Apart from all sound quality properties, the MMX 300 has to be praised first of all for its great comfort when putting on the head although it is not ultra-light (almost 400 g). The big circumaural velours ear pads fit perfectly and do not put pressure on the ears. The consequence is that this headset is not only comfortable for 15 minutes, but for six hours. It is not so tight that you sweat excessively and you still can notice what is going on around you. The adaptation of the headphone to the head is very easy by pulling out or sliding in the appropriate yokes, which is one simple action that works perfectly.
[...]

The microphone is attached at the end of an adjustable boom which can simply be folded away at its mounting on the left ear cup, what is absolutely alright from the ergonomic point of view. A replaceable foam piece acts as pop shield and does a fine job.

[...]

Colleagues will envy you, because this headset from beyerdynamic acoustically exceeds any other headset. Both microphone and headphone feature an extreme acoustical resolution, which is mainly noticed by the headphone’s extraordinary intelligibility of speech. (...)."

[...]

The MMX 300 is a hi-fi headphone of top quality with a very balanced frequency response, a very clear and clean reproduction of the highs and an outstanding deep bass. The microphone features a high transparency and balance, the isolation of ambient and wearing noise is perfect.
[...]

Both comfort of wearing and sound of beyerdynamic’s top model exceed the inexpensive mass products.
