Beyerdynamic MMX 150 : Design and comfort

Beyerdynamic MMX 150

The Beyerdynamic MMX 150 comes with a steel frame and the material used is plastic. Also, the headband and earbuds are made of memory foam cover in soft leather with protection. Synthetic leather ear pads filled with memory-foam ensure comfort for hours. They can be replace more quickly and easily due to the bayonet mechanism. It is easy to wear and comfortable. The pads are also so thick that you can’t even hear the sound of the environment around you.

Even with the metal body, it’s not just a heavy gaming headphone weighing 320g. Beyerdynamic MMX 150 offers solid construction and replaceable parts and straight design. Like the LucidSound LS10X, the MMX 150 also includes a USB cable, headphone jack and 3.5mm cable. Which means these headphones are compatible with computers, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, Nintendo Switch and more.

In addition, it acts as a dial button, on top of the audio up and down. You can tap the button to toggle mic mute or hold it to enter augmented mode. Which amplifies some environmental noise through the headset to keep you aware of the environment around you. Moreover, when you plug in with 3.5mm, these button options also do not exist. What’s more, there is no software component of any kind, so you get what you see.

Additionally, when you plug in via USB, the volume dial lights up and offers a few additional functions. The MMX 150 comes with a new augmented mode. Which strikes a balance between the digital and the real world. Like V-MODA Crossfade 2, it does not provide any type of IP rating option.

Beyerdynamic MMX 150 : Sound

The Beyerdynamic MMX 150 doesn’t sound as good as others like the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 and Sennheiser HD 450BT. It comes with 5HZ-30HZ frequency response with 116 dB sound pressure level. However, if you need an advanced consumer sound profile with boosted bass. Some sounds come with a little less omph than you can see. With the volume control wheel, you can adjust the volume without leaving your game.

The Beyerdynamic MMX 150 drivers are meta-picks in premium studio-quality sound. The high-resolution sound of the MMX 150 proves it a lot. The 40mm drivers built into the MMX have been specially optimize for gaming by acoustic engineers.

This results in a clearer and more accurate sound that can be heard in all genres: in FPS games you benefit from specific sound localization. Which gives you significant benefits in a variety of situations. RPGs sound more realistic because of the different sounds.

Looking for a microphone,

The Beyerdynamic MMX 150 microphone looks great for gaming headsets. This detachable microphone sits on a flexible wire, so it’s easy to make sure it’s in the right position for your needs. The mic seems accurate, lacks the typical lack of bass range output, and is loud enough. This is not suitable for most recording needs, but it will be done in a pinch, and is a great option if you are stuck on zoom calls all day for work. Listen for yourself.

If you’re looking for something with more software features, options like the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 and the HIFIMAN Edition XS both offer tons of features, respectively. They’re also very good headsets in their own right, with comfortable builds, and good sound and microphones—the G Pro X even has just as many replaceable parts as the MMX 150.

If you’re in the market for something wireless, options like Puro Sound Labs BT2200 brings nearly the same level of multiplatform compatibility as the MMX 150, using a USB-C 2.4GHz RF dongle. Similarly, the Turtle Beach Recon 200 Gen2 offers a similar range of compatibility, in a super lightweight frame. Both of these wireless gaming headsets are also cheaper than the MMX 150.
