First off I'm no expert when it comes to headphones or audio in general. This review won't be focused on describing the audio quality, but rather my experience and the product quality. I have been using the mmx300 for about a year now, immediately I put on Dekoni leather pads, so I've never used the stock pads. and when I'm using the headset with my main pc I always use my Mayflower arc mk2 dac+amp, highly recommend it too. So they may be advertised as gaming headphones but they're great for music too. These are my first high quality headphones I've gotten other than the Audio Technica m40x, but they sound great to my inexperienced ears. My favorite thing about the sound is the dynamic range, I never realized before how wide of a range of sound music can have, and it adds a wide range to the environment of games. I play quite a lot of Squad and Insurgency and the ease of hearing the direction of audio has saved me dozens of times, you'll hear small things several rooms over or a hundred feet away like it was real life. The mic quality is certainly above gaming headsets, I wouldn't say it's any better than separate microphone setups, but it's crisp and clear, used it for audio recording several times. They're fairly simple headphones with no buttons or mic muting, but the benefit of that is it's a clean design and is very lightweight, used for many 12+ hour sessions. There are plenty other things that are great about it like the 2 cables provided, one with split mic/headphones, and one combined. The case is a nice rigid case that holds all cables and adapters with ease. without the mayflower arc mk2 it still sounds great, maybe a bit quite though, I use it for flights and on my switch often. If there's any questions about them I'd be glad to answer. I spent $300 on it and in my opinion it's been absolutely worth it, and I'm frugal with my money.
