oh i see now. thanks. F.Y.I it is actually based off of their hs400 aviation headset, or a dt770 premium with a mic, while the dt770 is an excellent closed gaming headphone IMO.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
yeah i knew that and i know the DT770 is good for gaming also..but as u said..no mic and as i understand..the sound is configured differently by beyerdynamic...i once read a review about the mmx300 saying it was tuned especially for gaming and that it also sounded pretty good with listening to music was just a big plus ..the dt770 is more tuned for music..and one thing...in the time i have my mmx300 it had been punished to death almost..its cable was a million times under the wheels of my multi million pounds of chair ..fell on the ground i dont know how much times..but really..its still as new (see pics i made yesterday)...and thats funny..as the guy who reviewed this headphone actually said it was built like a tank..and i can confirm: u better believe it
Oh right, I guess I'll see how I go with it and go from there. No, I meant the D100 Amp/DAC.. not sure if the amp part of it will suffice? Thanks for your input though - appreciate it!
