depends what your looking at in terms of quality. PC38x from sennheiser is a great headset… but the sound quality is pretty bad due to lack of detail retrieval, separation, average soundstack, bad imaging at 9 and 11 oclock, relatively cheap build, and a decent mic.
MMX300 is overpriced as its a 770 in low ohms… while its a very great closed back… at $300 you can easily just get 770 for $100 + an amp dac + a modmic and call it a day. However, beyerdynamic headphones are built extremely sturdy.
if its a large issue and you need isolation… skip it. People seem to worry about open backs as they leak sound… unless your generally close to the person it won’t be an issue… Less its like… a sundara or something that is very open and is quite loud outside the headphone… other than that though your fine with a beyer as the sound leak isn’t that bad… neither is sennheisers.
if your going to roll a 770 you wont be able to use this directly to a console… its too power demanding. Search the used markets for the 770 at 250 ohm (they should be like $100 as its quite an older headphone these days), search the markets for either a k5 pro or Soundblaster g6 if these are over $140 then consider a dedicated stack search like liquid spark amp and dac, jds atom amp and dac, schiit magni/modi. Afterwards you just need the modmic… of which the usb is the best option there but if your going to use a controller you’d probably just want uni… more so if you get the g6 amp as you can plus both uni and the headphone into it at the same time.
penrose is fine but it still has issues. Its better than the mobius was. Regardless of all the people complaining its still essentially one of the best wireless low latency gaming headsets.
I can agree to this as well, mmx is a very good headset but my main concern is power… the console cannot feasibly fully power the mmx300(well… ps4 can’t ps5 can)
