Isolation

Supra-aural headphones aren't typically all that great at isolation by design, and the Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps were no different: they block out very little sound at all. You will notice that they do block out some of the higher-pitched sounds, so we will give credit where credit is due.

Leakage

Surprisingly, the supra-aural Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps corral their own sound very well. Because supra-aural headphones don't typically form a particularly good barrier to sound escaping, it's to be expected that people around you are going to hear what you're listening to at least a little bit. However, even if you crank the volume on these headphones, they won't allow much sound to escape.

Maximum Usable Volume

The Beyerdynamic DTX 300 ps reached an output level of 120.73dB without recording a 3% distortion level. Needless to say, this is very impressive, even if you're probably never going to need a pair of headphones to accommodate this crazy level of volume. In fact, we strongly recommend that you never, ever push a pair of headphones or other sound equipment to 120dB because that's the level of sound that will start to give you permanent hearing loss or damage to your fragile inner-ear bits. We here at HeadphoneInfo.com know you love your music, so please don't jeopardize your hearing: there will be many more tunes in the future that you will want to hear.
