Our Verdict 
Best in-ears £80-£150, Awards 2013. The added mic is handy, but it’s the better sound quality that really counts
Greater dynamics and weight
Remote lacks volume control
Reviewed on

It would be easy to dismiss the Beyerdynamic MMXs as a mic-enabled version of the less-expensive DTX 101 iEs, and that wouldn’t necessarily be a damning conclusion.

These are, though, superior-sounding buds that add weight and greater dynamics to the already impressive delivery. There’s a smidge more detail and drive to these full-bodied all-rounders, too.

While the lack of volume controls on the mic/remote unit might be annoying, the one-button system works with non-Apple smartphones – so more users can also enjoy the brilliant sound.

And in-ear headphones this good really do deserve to be enjoyed by everyone.
