the 8.300D are 30 € cheaper than the 8.35D. Would you recommend them, too? I'm using a modded Indeed/Bravo like amp at the moment, so power shouldn't be a problem.
On my Sennheisers I prefer the velour pads for comfort and I've seen German Maestro offers 2 velour pad options: One has "Special: Flipside perforated Soft Foil". What's the differende here and which one should I get?
Well...you can get the both and return one of them, both got the same FR (20 - 27.400 Hz). Maybe the 300ohm should be with more dynamic, but on the other hand the 8.35D drivers have a great dynamic for 35ohm hps. I didn't like so much the velour pads because I lost same bass in the overall sound presentation.
