D.he own perception is crucial when playing video games, because keen senses separate the wheat from the chaff when gaming. But even a bat’s hearing, cat-like reflexes and the sharpest eagle eyes are of precious little use if the gamer’s tool is dull and rusty. Keyboards, mice, but also headsets and their quality contribute directly to success. If you want to dominate in virtual battles, you have to listen carefully. Pros know: with a proper gaming headset, locating the enemy is easy. Almost all well-known gaming hardware manufacturers offer special headphones with a microphone for gamers. At the time of testing in November 2018, the MMX 300 cost around 300 euros. Today the device costs around 225 euros, which is still a lot of wood. The question arises: is it worth it? The long-term test from COMPUTER BILD answers the question.

The best gaming headsets

The long-term test: two years of continuous use

Even after two years of continuous use, the headset is practically like new. This is due to the robust workmanship and the high-quality material. The synthetic leather on the head pad was not damaged, the ear cups and their aluminum brackets have not been scratched, and even the mechanisms (to adapt to the shape of the skull) are intact. Some dirt collects in some places, for example on the (really high-quality) cables or on the microphone boom, but the headphones cannot do anything about that. Over time, some dust collects on the ear cushions, but the problem can also be solved in a few minutes with a vacuum cleaner.

Beyerdynamic MMX 300 in the test: top sound

Concentration when gambling is important – due to the high level of noise suppression, however, you may not notice when the pizza delivery boy rings the doorbell. And the sound? It’s still top notch. There is almost nothing to complain about: From the highs to the lows – the Beyerdynamic MMX 300 clearly reproduces game noises, music and speech in all pitches. The user hears loud explosions through the headphones, every soundtrack can be identified when listening to music and the headset also cuts a fine figure when gaming: No matter if “PUBG”, “Call of Duty” or “Escape from Tarkov” – even sneaking opponents can be located. The headphones convey a very good sense of space – noises can be precisely located. Sound effects like explosions are beautifully dynamic, voices and background music shine through detailed resolution.

The Beyerdynamic MMX 300 gaming headset has proven itself in the endurance test.

Nevertheless, there is criticism at a very high level. With the microphone transmission, the – otherwise precise – voice quality suffered slightly from a slightly booming bass. And the bass was also a bit too strong with music. Apart from that, it can be said: if you want the best sound in the customer area, you can’t avoid this headset.

Beyerdynamic MMX 300: Great convenience

The wearing comfort is high despite limited adjustment and adjustment options: The Beyerdynamic MMX 300 sits comfortably. A slight pressure on the ears can be felt, but it is not annoying even during longer sessions. It is a shame that the bracket can only be adjusted imprecisely. The cable-like microphone is easy to adjust and yet stable. The feel of the headset is not luxurious, but first class. It is robust and the workmanship is of high quality. Only the somewhat heavy cable and the slightly cheap-looking volume control were negative. If you want surround sound playback, you must also install the “Sonic” extension on Windows 10 computers. The manufacturer also recommends installing the Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound format, which increases the price by a further 15 euros. Because: An enclosed license is missing. At a purchase price of 300 euros, a free license would actually be quite nice. With the price-performance winner Plantronic RIG 600 among the headsets up to 100 euros, it finally worked. Good news: The gaming headset is also suitable for the Sony PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

Beyerdynamic MMX 300: test conclusion

Beyerdynamic’s gaming headset tops the list. The reasons for this are clear: The very comfortable Beyerdynamic MMX 300 clearly reproduces game noises, music and speech in all pitches. The location of the enemies also works precisely. And thanks to the good microphone, there are no communication problems when counterattacking. Great: Even after two years of active use, nothing has changed in the conclusion. The headset works perfectly.
