The German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor in the studio... serious about audio, INDEED!! - Page 56

I find them really comfortable in stock form, but everyone has a different head shape of course.

They were comfortable enough on my head, but completely impossible to wear around the neck.

Using these on the O2 amp, I'm quite enjoying them.

They sound so open for a closed headphone, it's uncanny. I do have to add that I have been using IEMs exclusively the last couple of months.

 

Oh, you're obviously all dying to know how the headband is doing. The headband is fine, the glue dried the way it should've!

Awesome, which pair do you like best? The oval pads do have an amazing soundstage, but they make the headphone sound really bright. Which I actually like, but not when using the headphones outside. 

 

I'm still very impressed with the SQ I get when pairing it with the O2 amp.

Waiting to hear your initial impression.  :happy_face1:

The oval pads do make them sound very bright. Even with the cloth/sponge driver protector.

So far I like the velour with closed back (3rd pair from left) with cloth/sponge in front of driver

Hmm interesting, do they still have the same soundstage with those pads?

They are a little more sibilant than stock with the velours, but not as bright as with oval pads.
Soundstage is still very good.
Definitely my favourite so far. Stock pads are good for sound, not so much for comfort. Velour are good for sound, comfort and withtout affecting the isolation too much.

Also I've found these to be revealing of bad recordings

Do you happen to know, if the akg k702 pads fit the gmp? I"ll receive the K702 anniversaries this weekend, might try those gel pads on the gmp.

 

I see that you own/use the HD800, is the sound similiar between the 8.35D and HD800? Because the FR of those headphones are fairly similar.

post #837 of 1115
I dont own them unfortunately. Although have tested them on quite a few occasions. The HD800 is way more airy, but actually thinking about it they do have a similar SIG. Obviously the HD800 has more detail, but in terms of quantity of everything, fairly similar.

I'll test them side by side next time I'm at hifiheadphones

Dont know about the AKG pads, but would be interested in hearing your opinion on them
post #838 of 1115
I would say if you like the GMP 8.35 D, you'll like the HD800. But I prefer the beyer T1, a little more intimate with a little more body, and they are highly detailed but more versatile. They dont hurl detail at you like the HD800

Those velours look really similar to Beyer's pads.  Are they the same, or rather, would they fit?

post #840 of 1115
Yes I think they would fit beyers. But the hole in the middle is smaller than beyer pads.
