The QH-1339 come in a package that blends the minimalist approach of beyerdynamic and their audiophile range, with the 'look at all our features' elements that are more common to the gaming spectrum. Thankfully it isn't overwrought. Inside the packaging is a high quality carry case, with plenty of storage space and padding, both to protect the headset in travel and store any other items you may wish, such as USB sticks or the like.

To say that the headset is well built is almost understating things. The headband, including hinges, is a solid piece of aluminium combined with steel and surrounded by a padded leather cushion.

Each ear piece has its own separate cable providing the audio. The microphone rotates 180° so you can position it to the left of right depending upon preference, although obviously the latter will require flipping your stereo. The foam cover ensures that your plosives wont become irritating to team-mates.

Oh wow, someone finally did it. Didn't think it'd be QPad in all honesty, but that's pretty awesome.

Personally I'd say the price isn't bad if these actually sound half decent.Quote

I wonder how they compare against the beyerdynamic 880s though, price wise they are around the same but you do get the mic with the QH-1339.Quote

I have the MMX 300 which is effectively the same product. I got it from a sale quite a while ago.

What I can say is that currently the microphone connection has started wearing out a bit. Also, once when I opened it, the plastic side broke into two halves. I could manage to get it back there, it's in two pieces alright but they fit together when the screws are there.

The plastic used in the MMX 300 at least isn't exactly the best. I've seen the same kind of plastic on cheaper lightning accessories; by the time you're going to change the bulb, the plastic has hardened so much that you can't really get it out without breaking it. The clips on the side are plastic, and very_frail. If you need to temporarily remove the headband and the cups, be careful with the screws.

The sound quality decent, the microphone quality isn't amazing but it is far better than some Zalman clip-on or other such alternatives.

When it's all said and done, I'd probably go for some Sennheiser alternative or get DT770 / DT990 from Beyerdynamics themselves and combine it with an Antlion Modmic. The headphones which the MMX300 and QH-1339 effective are, are a pair of DT770 32Ohm limited edition headphones. They're very easy to drive.Quote

Might as well get the DT880s if these are only the DT770s. You can get the DT880s and a mod mic for the same price as these. Or get the DT770s and a mod mic for £150, same thing but £80 cheaper :\Quote
