This clearly isn’t the first time that Beyerdynamic has made its way into the gaming world, but it is the first time it has done so with a wireless headset solution. The company has announced its new MMX 200 Wireless Gaming Headset, adding to the MMX lineup.
The idea of the MMX line of headsets is to provide consumers with a studio-grade sound. Enhancing the experience of both what they hear as well as their voice as they communicate with others. So more of a focus on clarity and range vs. the special effects you find in other models (spatial audio, head tracking, etc.).
Everything is driven with dynamic 40mm high-performance drivers and the microphone is detachable so that it can be stowed away when not in use. That microphone features an electret condenser capsule for higher max sound pressure levels, wider response, and less noise.
It makes use of Bluetooth 5.3 for its wireless connectivity, taking advantage of all of the latest BT codecs for better range, compression/bandwidth, and device (feature) compatibility. This is also great on battery life, leading to use times of up to 50 hours on a single charge (use/idle mix). While it also supports the ability to take it wired when needed.
It is available via Beyerdynamic’s website for an MSRP of $249 and will likely land on additional retail shelves in the near future. You have the option between two colors, including black and grey.
