Beyerdynamic MMX 100 and MMX 150: analog and USB gaming headsets

From the very first glance at the Beyerdynamic MMX 100 and MMX 150 gaming headsets , it becomes obvious that this is a Beyerdynamic. The “headphone” company remained true to itself – the new items were created around the branded 40-mm drivers in a closed design, with a recognizable corporate design.

Both models have a soft headband and leatherette ear cushions filled with memory foam. The bayonet mounting mechanism is designed to facilitate their replacement. Directly on the headphones is a volume control and a mute button for the cardioid microphone, which, according to the manufacturer, is focused on accurately conveying the player’s voice, and not the sounds around him.

Both new products are promised a reproducible frequency range of 5-30,000 Hz with an impedance of 32 ohms and a maximum sound pressure level (at 1 mW of power at 500 Hz) equal to 116 dB SPL. In this case, the coefficient of nonlinear distortion will not exceed 0.5%.

The difference between MMX 100 and MMX 150 is in the connection method. The first model is purely analog and is equipped with a pair of cables, with one or two (for separate connection of the microphone and headphones) 3.5 mm jacks. The second works via USB, it is connected to a USB-C to USB-A cable or a USB-C cable, on the other end of which there is a 4-pin 3.5 mm CTIA connector for connecting the headset to analog devices.

In the US, the cost of both models strictly corresponds to their digital indices: the Beyerdynamic MMX 100 costs $ 100, and the Beyerdynamic MMX 150 – $ 150.
