The Package


The Beyerdynamic MMX 300 2nd Gen comes in a large, professional-looking box. It shows the headset's left side and informs us that this headset is designed for the most demanding gamers. Many potential buyers will undoubtedly be thrilled to see the "Made in Germany" badge, proudly displayed on the front of the box.


The sides of the box contain a full breakdown of the MMX 300's specifications and key features. Here, you'll find out that both the speaker drivers and microphone are considered studio-grade by their manufacturer.


The front of the box is held in place by a piece of Velcro. Open it and you'll by greeted by a nice photo of the headset and a bit of inspirational text that should definitely seal the deal for when you are in a store with this box in your hands while still trying to decide on whether you should dish out the dough for it or not.


First true sings of luxury can be spotted upon opening the box. Inside, you'll find a great hard shell carrying case along with the headset itself and a couple of accessories. First and foremost, we have a pair of cables, as already mentioned in the introduction. Both cables feature an in-line remote control with a volume dial, a microphone mute switch, and a button. The button can be used to temporarily mute the microphone (PC version of the cable) or to answer calls and control media (console/mobile device version of the cable). Finally, there's a 3.5-mm to 6.35-mm audio adapter (1/8 inch to 1/4 inch), an obvious clue that Beyerdynamic would like you to use proper headphone amplification for the MMX 300 2nd Gen.
