The MMX300 is a closed design, so it will prevent most of the sound inside the headphone, and keep outside noises out.

The PC360 is open, so while it won't isolate, it will have a considerably larger, more natural soundstage which is beneficial for gaming.

And what is the diffrence between the Beyerdynamic MMX300 and Sennheiser PC360? does the diffrence worth the extra $$ ?



What razer are you talkin about? Chimera?

 

Difference between MMX300 and PC360 is the headphones (and the mic as well, don´t know though): With MMX300 you get a Beyerdynamic DT 770 with attached mic, so you pay about 200 for the mic. And it´s the same with the PC360 (basis here is Sennheiser 518 or 558), although the premium is not that much. 

 

In short: MMX300 is better, but imho it´s not worth the money. Get the DT 770 and a seperate mic. Or go with the PC360.

I've not heard the PC360, but I tried using the DT770/32ohm for gaming (supposedly an MMX300 without mic) and I found it to be turd. Maybe I had it on backwards.tongue.gif 

 

I preferred the AD700 and HD598 for gaming accuracy and now I usually game with the D7000.

Aren't the mmx300s just dt770s and pc360s just the hd598? Haven't listened to the dt770s yet, but had a listen to the hd598s yesterday and if they are anything like the pc360s, I think you'd be making a good choice with them. Heard great reviews on the mmx300s too, though.

No, PC360 is not 598, but 518 or 558. But not 598!

Quick question guys, i have a Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO / 250 ohm in a store close to my home and somewhere i read that the DT 990 pro is actually the DT 990 Premium it's just named diffrently in some countries ?
And will this pair work with an on-board soundcard and an MP3 player ? since i know it's a power hungey headphones.

there is a thread on head- fi called "beyerdynamic dt 990 250 pro review" you might want to take a look at! you might kill two birds with one stone with these cans you could use them for your bass guitar..and get a "logitech mic and a fiio e5 headphone amp"

Wrong. The PC360 is actually modeled after the 595. I believe they share the same drivers, but the housing and internal gives it a different sound, FWIR.

It baffles me how people come up with things from out of nowhere. The 558/598 are a different series altogether. Don't even know how the hell the 518 has been added to this.

can you please direct me to this beyerdynamic dt 990 250 pro review thread pls ?
Since the search brings up so many resaults that there's no way i could find it, would no one kindley answer the question if he knows ? :)

post #4465 of 37451

the post said that they have got a good bass and that even a ipod will power them but they sound a lot better with a headphone amp..so a good choice would be a fiio e5 or e6 and logitech desk top mic which will cost about $30!

And yeah i was thinking picking them up for their "fun" use in gaming and for playing bass guitar.
So what happens when the earphones don't get sufficient power ? they just sound bad or just quiet ?

post #4467 of 37451

a fiio headphone amp would be a good choice because they are only cheap but portable and you could use it with your mp3 player aswell! and a logitech desk top mic for the battlefield my friend!

Beyer Pro headphones are NOT renamed Premiums. Afaik Pro vs Premium is about clamping force, and external appearance. 
E.g. 990 Pro grips your head tighter and has plastic, black grills outside; 990 Premium grips looser and has metal grills. 
post #4469 of 37451

But in terms of sound they are the same right ?
And as i know the DT 990 has a big jack input and all these amps would have a 3.5 jack . . do i need to use an adapter ? it would be wierd carrying all that in my pocket . .
What model would you recommend and how do they work ? usb rechargble ?

The 6.3m jack unscrews and reveals the 3.5mm jack.
