A New $100 Gaming Headset Champ?

so we have actually got the mmx 100 as well as 150 in your home today these are 2 new gaming headsets from bear vibrant valued at 99 and also 149 specifically we have actually seen gaming headsets from bear prior to yet not at a cost point similar to this the 269 mmx 300 as well as the less expensive customized game are both shut back and also they’re based on the dt770 they both have headset microphones attached the open back tiger 300r is excellent as well it brings 169 dollars and also does not consist of a headset installed mic there is transparent that unlike their existing pc gaming line these are manufactured in china versus their factory in germany and they don’t seem to be utilizing an existing chauffeur that’s made at their residence manufacturing facility either these are both shut back 32 ohms so truly simple to drive on mobile gadgets or console controllers both models are available either in this light gray colorway or this black with orange accents the vital difference is that the 100 is simply analog while the 150 has a powered usb electronic sound card aboard beyond that in a number of

convenience functions with the mic the build the motorists the mic and also the audio quality practically the exact same the layout is promptly recognizable as bare vibrant it’s modeled even more after the newer 700 and also 900 professional lines than the older heritage style of like the 770 990 and so on steel headband aluminum forks and also beyond that are mainly plastic builds quite light also with 305 grams on my range the plastic cups below seem to be really durable which is generally the instance with bare things we have an artificial leather padded headband ear pads are artificial leather too round with the 56 millimeter opening these do have a quite thick indoor pad which is excellent because these pads are very shallow like my ears touch throughout these and they obtain hot really quick i put on these at one click on each side below limit change i do have a quite high head yet people with huge or high heads will certainly intend to beware with these they additionally have a reasonable little bit of clamping pressure as well as the pads do not really do a whole lot to support that between that and also the warm build-up it’s a pity since these are not several of the more comfortable pc gaming headsets i have actually ever used which’s not great particularly for a gaming product that’s going to be worn a minimum of a minimum of like two hours all the controls are on the left ear mug however we belong to connect the removable mic and also the

removable cable which has a style distinct to this earphone the 100 has a mic mute and also a volume wheel both of which feel quite spending plan you additionally get a two meter cord with the mic as well as earphone plug split or a solitary much shorter common jack cable for use with controllers or like a nintendo button the 150 has a solitary clickable notched volume wheel that makes an actually frustrating sound and it’s means even worse when you in fact have them on your head the 150 likewise has a usbc adapter as it’s obtained that digital sound card really inside the headset rather than an inline device so you have the alternative of running it either usb-c to usb-a to use that sound card or merely going usb-c to 3.5 millimeter analog for resources that do not have a usb port the mic on both of these is a 9.9 millimeter capsule cardioid mic when it comes to the 100 you’ll be at the mercy of whatever your mic input is whether that’s connected directly right into your motherboard or you’re using some type of external dac amp or audio card i can not verify that both the mics seem the same which is remarkably excellent like the mics on gaming headsets have actually obtained extremely good what we can not hear is the mic on the mmx 100 going directly right into the motherboard since there’s a short in here somewhere and also the mic cuts in and also out the entire time what we are hearing is the mic from

the mmx 100 connected into the mmx 150 then going out over analog directly right into the motherboard the levels here are insane this is it like 65 mic quantity and also there is plenty a lot of quantity below it deserves noting i had to use my own splitter due to the fact that the short analog cable that features the mmx 150 is only a solitary combination jack for use with a console controller now what we’re hearing is the mmx 150 connected straight right into the computer by means of usb so it’s outputting over its very own audio card the high quality is still very evident but it’s actually silent i had to improve this approximately match the audio degrees with the remainder of the video clip even at a hundred percent mic quantity we’re seeing somewhere in between unfavorable 18 to adverse 12 db so quite silent it’s worth mentioning as well that the mic on the 150 below has a mute led indicator and also the 100 does not for mic efficiency i’m truly satisfied this sounds much much better than the majority of what i have actually heard at the 99 price factor as well as it also shuts the gap in between something similar to this as well as something that i’ve generally installed on a stand like the pc38x these are shut back so soundstage isn’t generally the star of the program particularly at this price point and also you really do need to examine both of these at that hundred dollar cost point due to the fact that unless your source is just super garbage then both versions appear the very same as well as the added price of the 150 generally covers the included usb capability the other benefits to shut back are usually much deeper

tighter bass and passive sound isolation i can not claim that the passive sound seclusion on these is excellent if you’ve got anything playing out of these at any quantity degree at all it’s actually difficult to listen to anything taking place around you that makes these really good if you reside in a loud atmosphere or do not want to disrupt anybody else that you cope with i can likewise claim that the audio efficiency on these may be the most effective i have actually listened to at that hundred dollar cost point it’s a v-shape eq bass is definitely existing below however not overwhelming or bloaty like the hyperx cloud 2. Like a lot of points bear dynamic the highs are truly stressed they can get rather warm information refers viewpoint based upon what you’ve heard but again i believe the most effective method to claim it is that these are leading the organization at this price factor a great deal of this as well was based around music paying attention due to the fact that it’s really hard to express stuff similar to this when you’re just paying attention to footsteps as well as gunshots the directional positioning or imaging is rather strong however like in vanguard that audio engine is garbage and also they’re always doing means as well much with the kill streaks that minimized

audio stage makes it rather hard for me to choose anything yet you reach something like halo and also it truly aids you navigate your method to the action much faster but with that much higher ttk it’s not as essential that you get the decline on someone as in something like telephone call of responsibility i was fretted also that with the restricted mic quantity that we saw on the mmx 150 that we may likewise not be able to get these audible just in audio output the good news is that’s not the instance you’ve got lots of volume expenses here both on the pc as well as on a ps5 controller the volume dial on the 150 just manages the internal sound card so it has to be powered in order to operate what this implies is that if you’re using it linked into the ps5 controller there’s no volume control on the headset however you connect it right into the real ps5 via usb and also you get quantity control in addition to the capacity to hear your mic back in your headset without any lag or side tone the side tone function does not work as well as neither does the volume wheel when you’re running in analog mode so to truly make the many of the mmx 150 you’re gon na need a computer or ps5 you’ll obtain minimal capability in analog just mode running on something like an xbox or a switch and also to

utilize that usb on the ps5 you’re gon na have to be sitting close sufficient to actually connect straight right into it the cable there has to do with 7 and a half feet or like 2.2 meters long so worth i was quite careful to claim continuously that this has possibly the very best audio performance as well as excellent mic performance for 100 bucks the main point that holds these back ignoring the qc problem on my 100 system is convenience it’s worse with glasses too if you’re the sort of person that’s troubled when their ears touch the within of the chauffeur anywhere these are practically an automatic note the phonetic respond might be an oem but it’s significantly much more comfy deals the very same analog feature set as well as gives roughly 85 to 90 percent of the audio and mic performance for 65 dollars versus 99 the old requirement the hyperx cloud 2 is worlds extra comfortable endures some base bloat it’s about 75 to 80 percent of the audio high quality the mic on those is primarily throwaway by today’s criteria it remains in negative demand of a refresh they are down to 70 bucks currently from 100 and also it’s not lost on me that those are based on the attack star 80 which were themselves a knock off of bear’s very own dt 770. As well as for those still stating choose the ship 9500 and a v-moda boom pro it’s much better than any type of video gaming headset i seem like that’s outdated

guidance video gaming headsets both in audio top quality and mic efficiency have actually truly been forced to boost over the past couple years due to competition and taking out the ship 9500 for this evaluation it’s a truly metal timber general to the audio and also the details in the highs in the upper mid so your footsteps your reloads your gunshots the things you desire truly close to you are pressed back in floaty sensation i don’t seem like this is still the great suggestions it was 3 to 5 years ago it’s just a pity they really did not go with a more comfortable layout right here it would certainly have been a precise success at that hundred dollar cost point despite the restricted audio phase and i do think the mmx 100 is a much better value than the 150. You do not obtain much if anything in audio performance the mic side tone is nice but your mic quantity is pretty restricted and also the onboard controls only operate in usb powered situations the quantity change on the mmx 100 is all analog so it works no matter what you plug it right into which is specifically nice for console controllers and also at 149 dollars it gets precariously close in cost to the pc38x as well as while the mic performance is truthfully

extremely close i much choose the audio discussion below it is an open back so it’s not excellent if you’re searching for isolation however whether i’m in phone call of responsibility or halo it feels generally 3d in contrast to the mmx 100 as well as it’ll take care of rather much any type of songs paying attention situation well whereas the mmx 100 is simply passable for laid-back listening if you do not need a mic on your head you ‘d certainly be far better served by bears on tiger 300 or though it is open and also lacks a removable cable in close back also the dt770 is far more flexible is available in a 32 ohm version too but once more does not have a removable cable so if you enjoy the channel frequently you have actually probably heard me speak about nebula if you’re not acquainted galaxy is our very own independent streaming platform constructed and also owned by myself and other outstanding creators like architect and developer daniel titchener genuine science and also tech modify that deep studies the huge company behind the innovation that we utilize daily nebula has exclusive material podcasts expanded versions also entirely original functions as well as of program all of our videos from youtube exist there without any ads or sponsor reads and the most effective way to obtain access to galaxy is to sign up for curiosity stream the sponsor these days’s video curiosity stream is the world’s leading
