I am also looking for pads that more comfortable. The hole in the middle of the pad is bigger than the stock ones, that's already very good for me. Also the distance between driver and ears is bigger too I hope.

 

Any suggestion from GM ear pads or I will get 41-6050.

Those would be the oval pads. I just wrote a whole paragraph about how your ears still touch the driver with these pads :p

They are still better sounding than the stocks, but something a little deeper would be much better. See my previous post...

Ok I am gonna get these 41-6050 oval pads for the moment and if I feel uncomfy with them too, I will try to get something deeper. I am going to give my headphones to post on their way to go Germany. Damn, I already miss listening to music with these detail monsters.

Wat what, why are you sending the headphones away?

 

Btw with the ovals there is way more detail, they are also much more comfortable.

Maybe you can ask them if they have some foam like the net protection shape to add over the drivers.

I thought there are already a net protection over the drivers? I remember seeing your photos when you got them first time. If I am not mistaking there was a net protection.

My cable got damaged, you can find the photos in German-MAESTRO appreciation thread. Also headband or something related to it is not very nice either. Earcups move a lot, the headphone hardly stays on my head. Thomas said he will fix everything and all (under warranty). So I wanted to use this nice chance to get a earpad replacement too.

It has been a while now I have my Maestro's with their new pads. I found the isolation is a little bit, slightly less than stock ones. Bass is less punchy, but it is there you feel it you get what was exactly recorded. Perfect for me. Apart from these things soundstage became wider. I just can't explain it better but I am gonna give it a try, it is like when I close my eyes I can feel the people play the instruments around me. Wonderful. I guess 1 step further from this point goes to open back headphones. The sound is clearer now, more transparent I would say.

 

One more thing I have to mention, these new pads solved all the comfort problems. I can literally wear them for 5+ hours without a problem. Excellent.

 

Edit: I will post some photos of the headphone later, now I am not at home. The new pads came with a different protection than what Acix has. I can't see the driver through the protection for example.

The dust protection with your new pads is probably the newer velour coated foam pad to which German Maestro switched months ago.

It actually does slightly attenuate the treble peaks which the older 1 fiber thick net dust protection didn't.

The oval earpads have similar sonic influence to the DT880 velour earpads on my GMP 400.

The treble with the Beyer earpads is a bit cleaner, though.

Looks like you're right, those pads probably roll of the treble a bit. Now the toilet paper mod is over!

Haha lol :p I'm not using any paper or whatever with the 8.35Ds and I find the treble really smooth. No sibilance at all. But When I just got them I had to use paper with the oval pads to protect my ears. I'm wondering if this is driver burn in, or just brain burn in...

Probably both! beerchug.gif I'm glad they put out those new dust protections.

Here I am again and this time I have my photos with me as I promised. If anyone needs a different angle or any specific photo I am ready to deliver too.

 

These are new pads 41-6050 with the dust protection people already mentioned here.

 

 

 

The last one is with flash so protection can be seen better.

 

All the photos are taken by Samsung Galaxy S2, which is the only device I have can take photos smily_headphones1.gif

Looks pretty comfy!

They are daaaaaaamn comfy man. Literally I did wear them more than 5 hours and didn't feel anything bad. No headache, no pressure nothing. It couldn't be better I guess. So my endless search for a comfortable earpad has ended.

 

Now I have to improve my DAP :) First, as a student, I have to put some money aside. Then I guess I am gonna get Colorfly C4 or iBasso dx100. But I hate touchscreen controls so probably dx100 will not be the choice.

 

Why these 2 only? Because I am looking for a DAP with 6.3mm jack entrance and they are the only ones I could find.

As a fellow student I know your pain, and I'm going to stop you here.

I'm guessing you probably don't need a 6.3mm entrance, and those daps are pretty darn expensive. Don't spent too much money on the source, I've found that a good dac/amp combination does not have to cost a lot, and you're not going to hear that much of a difference, especially not with a 150 euro headphone that is easy to drive.

 

I've also found that a sansa clip zip is not bad at all, pair it with a fiio e6, and you got something that's better than a hisoundaudio rocoo p player.

Better late than never right? Here are the GMPs with the J$ pads. 

Apart from a slight treble peak and a slight decrease in bass punch the sound improves in every way.

 

I actually don't use the J$s on the GMPs, but that's because I like them even better on the hifiman HE-400s.

The biggest difference in sound is the timbre, it's more open, there is no tinny sound at all, and overal clarity and seperation is better.

 

Wit the J$s the sound quality comes pretty close to something like the t50rp maddogs, especially when properly equalized.

 

 

As you can see they are big, I actually felt a bit ridiculous when I wore these outside...

 

 

 

Since I'll use these pads on the HE-400, I'm looking for something else. The alpha pads might do the trick.
