Bring the studio into the game room in our Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Review!

In the ever-evolving landscape of gaming peripherals, audio quality is still one of the most important aspects of creating an immersive gaming experience. Which is why Beyerdynamic, renowned for their commitment to audio excellence, have entered the gaming market with the MMX 200 Wireless gaming headset. As their first gaming headset, the MMX 200 aims to redefine the standards of gaming audio with a blend of studio-quality sound, innovative features, and ergonomic design.

Crafted with a focus on both style and substance, the MMX 200 Wireless boasts a sleek and modern design without the flashy RGB of many gaming headsets. It’s a design that not only complements its high-quality audio output but also enhances its overall usability, making it a standout choice for gamers seeking both performance and comfort.

So is Beyerdynamic’s first attempt at a gaming headset a worthy contender? Find out in our MMX 200 review below!

Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Review – Design

The Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Wireless gaming headset combines sleek aesthetics with functional design elements. Boasting a modern and minimalist design, with clean lines and a matte black finish that exudes sophistication, held together by a sturdy aluminium bracket. The earcups are large and well-padded, providing a comfortable fit that can be worn for extended periods without causing discomfort. The headband is also generously padded, ensuring a comfortable fit for a wide range of head sizes (like my melon head).

Another design highlight of the MMX 200 Wireless is its simple-to-use control scheme. The headset features a satisfyingly clicky control wheel on the earcup that allows for easy volume adjustments and muting of the microphone. This control wheel is conveniently located and easy to use, allowing you to make quick adjustments without having to fumble with small buttons or controls.

Unfortunately, one of the lacking features is a foldable design, which would have allowed for easy storage and portability. The MMX 200 is sturdy and rigid, with the earcups held in place and unable to be rotated flat, making it inconvenient to pack the headset in a bag or carry-on when travelling. This feature means the MMX 200 Wireless may not be for gamers who are constantly on the go and need a headset that can easily be taken with them wherever they game.

Overall, the design of the Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Wireless gaming headset strikes a perfect balance between style and functionality. Its sleek and modern design, combined with its comfortable fit and intuitive controls, make it a standout choice for gamers looking for a high-quality gaming headset that delivers both performance and style. It’s just not the most portable headset out there.

Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Review – Audio

As a studio-focused brand, Beyerdynamic are known for their attention-to-detail when it comes to impressive audio quality. And thankfully that’s no different with the Beyerdynamic MMX 200, which delivers an exceptional audio experience, with a focus on clarity, accuracy, and immersion. At the heart of the headset’s audio performance are the integrated 40mm studio driver systems, which are specially designed by Beyerdynamic acousticians for gaming. These drivers deliver a clear and comprehensive soundscape, allowing gamers to hear every detail in their games with precision.

One of the key features of the MMX 200 Wireless is its microphone, which can be attached and detached easily when needed. The “meta voice” microphone (fancy name) aims to deliver crisp and clear voice chat, with a design that renders voices lifelike and natural, while effectively suppressing ambient noise. This ensures that teammates can hear each other clearly, even in noisy gaming environments. Just take a listen to a short sample below.

In addition to its impressive microphone, the MMX 200 Wireless also features advanced audio processing technologies that further enhance its audio performance. The headset supports Low Latency (LC3) transmission via a sleek USB-C dongle, which minimises audio delay and ensures that gamers can hear game audio in real-time. This is particularly important for competitive gaming, or in my preference, rhythm games, where even millisecond delays can make all the difference.

Overall, the Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Wireless gaming headset delivers a superb audio experience that is sure to impress even the most discerning gamers. Its combination of studio-quality drivers, 35-hour battery life, and low-latency transmission make it a standout choice for gamers looking for a headset that delivers exceptional audio performance.

Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Review – Comfort

Even the best-sounding headset doesn’t overcome the fact that comfort is essential when it comes to gaming headsets, especially for long sessions. Despite its solid build, Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Wireless does reasonably well here, offering a comfortable and ergonomic design that prioritises the user’s comfort without compromising its sturdy design.

The earcups of the MMX 200 Wireless are generously padded with memory foam, providing a plush cushioning that conforms to the shape of the user’s ears. This not only enhances comfort but also helps to create a seal around the ears, blocking out external noise and improving sound quality. The earcups are also large enough to accommodate most ear sizes without causing discomfort.

The headband of the MMX 200 Wireless is also well-padded, ensuring that the headset sits comfortably on the user’s head with minimal pressure points. The headband isn’t adjustable, but the earcups can easily be moved up and down, allowing users to customise the fit. Although, at a rather hefty 360g, the headset isn’t particularly lightweight. After several hours of use, you might find that the padding doesn’t quite cut it.


Want the best possible sound from your games? Then the Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Wireless gaming headset offers a compelling package for those seeking a high-quality audio experience. With its studio-quality sound, innovative features, and comfortable design, the MMX 200 Wireless delivers on its promise of bringing the studio into the game room.

The headset’s sleek and modern design, intuitive controls, and comfortable fit make it a standout choice for gamers who value both performance and style. However, its lack of a foldable design may be a drawback for gamers who game on the go. Despite this, the MMX 200 Wireless is a solid choice for gamers seeking a premium gaming headset that delivers exceptional audio quality and comfort.

Overall, the Beyerdynamic MMX 200 Wireless gaming headset is a worthy contender in the gaming audio market, offering a compelling combination of style, comfort, and performance that is sure to impress even the most discerning ears.

So, why should you buy the Beyerdynamic MMX 200?

  • You value high-quality sound quality that borders on studio

But why shouldn’t you buy the Beyerdynamic MMX 200?
