MMX 300 Digital Premium Gaming Headset

A class like the digital premium USB headset MMX 300 has been previously unknown to gaming fans:
A Hi-Fi capable professional headset derived from private aviation and perfected for the complicated conditions of noisy ****pits was adjusted for the special demands of extended gaming sessions. Equipped with an intelligent USB converter, the listening-speech combination via plug & play becomes a guarantee of the maximum gaming experience. At home or “on the road”, this has been designed for everyone who expects more than mediocre beeps from low quality mini speakers or built-in PC speakers.
The flexible headband construction allows hours of playing without fatigue; ear surrounding earpieces snuggle almost unnoticeably around the head of the player. This high quality headset is also equipped with alternative analog connections, a mute button for the condenser microphone and a volume control directly on the USB box for quick access while playing.


What specialists publications tell about MMX 300:

“The beyerdynamic MMX 300 is not just great for gaming with its phenomenal sound – albeit only in stereo – but is also ideally suited for musical listening pleasure. Extremely precise, crisp and deep bass notes blend smoothly with clear mid-range and clean trebles to deliver an altogether satisfying acoustic experience. The recording quality is every bit as good: the microphone, mounted on a flexible arm, records the voice without any distortion and shields external interference very reliably.“ (...) The quality of finish underlines the claim to luxury made by this headset: the leather-clad bracket presses the MMX 300 gently onto your head, while the earphones in a carbon fibre look enclose even large ears completely and, thanks to the thick padding, incredibly softly – high-quality materials, robust build quality.“
“4 out of 5 stars“ (SFT, 11/2007)

“Sennheiser’s PC350 and beyerdynamic’s MMX 300 leave the rest of the test field way behind them, not only in terms of price but also with their great sound. Both sound remarkably precise and enable the wearer to hear where individual noises are coming from. (...) Having said that, the Sennheiser PC 350 sounds very hard and deep-chilled, whereas the MMX 300 delivers an altogether more harmonious listening experience.“
(c`t, 2007, Issue 24)

“Exceptionally detailed, balanced sound with powerful, precise bass notes and outstanding 3-dimensional spatial awareness“ (c`t, 2007, Issue 24)

“With this high-end headset, the customer is also provided with a few tempting finishing touches. Technically speaking, this headset is based on a model which beyerdynamic developed for private pilots. This explains the robust build standard and high quality of audio transmission. Furthermore, the earpieces damp external ambient noise to 18 decibels, which can be really helpful, particularly when attending LAN parties. The comfortable design with a sprung steel bracket and soft, replaceable head pads and ear cushions also enables you to indulge in long gaming sessions.“ (PC, 10/2007)

Here is the item page http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sennheiser-HD-...QQcmdZViewItem

seriously a boom mic and good audio driver headphones, is like an oxymoron. The turtle beach are good but audio wise they're lacking in soundstage, I truly prefer my Seinhausser HD555s and AD700s over them for audio by a long shot, but i bring them to LANs, for ease of use. At home I use one set of headphones and the zalman mic, but i recently broke it and need to get a new one.... DOH!
Get the AD-700's from newegg!!

I got mine for $109 shipped!!!

the 770's come in several flavors, 32ohm, 80ohm, 250ohm, and 600ohm. The catch is Beyer separated them and sells them under different categories.

You have the 770m which are geared towards musicians and drummers and are 32ohm, but don't sound as good as the rest...

Then you have the 770 Pro/80 which is the old style and the best sounding of the readily avaliable versions.

And then the 'consumer' version is the 770 and is 250ohm (doesn't sound as good as the Pro/80)

Finally you have the Beyer Manufacture which comes in 80/250 or 600ohm I believe.

What do you think I should do?
most likely the problem is the cable. If you're in the US you could send them to me for a fix, or you could buy a new cable:
