Beyerdynamic has this week unveiled their new second-generation MMX 300 Headphones which builds upon the popular MMX 300 premium headset, which will be officially unveiled at next year’s CES 2017 technology event.
One of the main features of the new generation of MMX 300 headphones is the new detachable connection cable. Which has been designed to provide a connection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One as well as smartphones, tablets and PC laptops and now offers a massive 2.4 m of cable.
The press release ahead of CES 2017 explains a little more about what you can expect
The indestructible construction of the MMX 300 (2nd generation) with sprung steel headbands and solid aluminium 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.
The new matte black housing color 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 18 decibels – 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 gamer’s commentary as effectively as possible.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Beyerdynamic, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
