I've been doing research, and wondering which headset is currently sitting at the top of the Dual 3.5mm class. I'm looking at getting a Mixamp for the Xbox 360, and having a headset that can do PC gaming as well. (In which instance the Mixamp would be used as an amplifier.) So far the two standout "premium" (and by that I mean they play back music decently as well) models seem to be the PC360 and the MMX300. There's other expensive options as well, but they seem focused on the gaming/surround aspect to the detriment of other playback--like the Psyko, Astro A40, or the Tritton and Turtle Beach models.
I've been able to find a moderate number of reviews of the MMX300, and even a small comparison between that and the PC350, but not the newer/more expensive 360. I've seen guesswork that the 350 and 360 would have the same drivers, but that the 360 would benefit from a more open enclosure and slight redesign, but I haven't seen any real confirmation of that. General feedback on both options seems to have been generally positive, but comparatively speaking, does anyone have any opinions between the two? The MMX300 seemed to win out against the 350, but I'm wondering if the 360 reverses that or if not enough progress was made. Also I'm wondering if anyone has tried the mics on one or both and could compare them. Some reviews say the Beyer's mic is a bit too sensitive, but there's very little critical data there either.
And please, yes, I know that I could probably tape a PC mic to something like an ATH-AD700 and likely come out with better sound. But that gives me all the ergonomic utility of one thing duct taped to another thing, which I have tried and found...lacking. Yes, there is a Shure headworn mic grafted onto a Grado RS1 run through an X2U in my house--and while it serves its purpose admirably, I'm not looking to revisit that kind of solution here.
