You're right the GMP 250 are 100 Ohms. I'm glad you like them with a tube amp they do need a lot of juice to pump those lazy drivers. :happy_face1: 

 

 

Edit: Have you had the chance to check out the 8.35D with tube amps?

No, sorry. In fact I never heard the 8.35D at all.

I'm also quite curious about this. I do have to say, that they sound really good out of the O2.

its stuff like this that makes me broke!!! arrggghhh...

 

NICE pics btw are those beyer velours?

post #860 of 1115
German maestro velours actually. Dont know from which model though.

Thanks, they are a little black to photograph, not the most photogenic (unlike the final audio design piano forte series)
post #861 of 1115

they remind me of the x1 pads... they looked thicker than the beyer velours as well. I had those with alpha pads before. The alpha pads increase details and lessened the reverberation vs the stock pads. Because of the supreme isolation, midrange clarity, and durability, the 8.35d make the absolute best headphones for recording booths. I will be convincing the studio to get these. 

 

I just purchased some yammaha mt220's and was thinking of getting the mdr7520 to compare but that picture just captured my attention and is making me rethink things.

Brilliant for on the go listening too, you can throw them about, no one would want to steal them as they dont look special, and are easily driven out of an ipod (amping does increase sq by quite a bit)

Listening to them out of the O2 amp now, incredible sound!

Yes I agree. With the oval pads on, I like to call them the gmp cymbal simulator 2013.

Indeed, the portrayal of cymbals is very realistic, but with the ovals its just too much. With the velour it is bearable, and comfortable. Can't wait for my JDS Labs C5D to test the bass boost! Have a feeling it will be a match made in heaven for on the go listening.

After some extensive research, I'm going to use these cans for a museum exhibit I'm creating, due to their renowned durability. I would ideally like to use a pair of headphones with an in-line volume adjustment. Anyone know if I can buy the GM 8.35D's with this type of cable? (Someone mentioned it earlier in this thread…)

I actually owned the C5, and yes, the bass boost is godlike with the gmp 8.35D. Works extremely well!

I agree from my experience it can use a bass boost but when boosted it is awesome. I really like the bass quality of the maestro. I think it and an ifi Ican would make a good pairing. along with some eq in the treble

post #870 of 1115
I'll be getting C5D for portable (2 different bass settings, low and high) and at home an iDAC, iTube and iCan. The iTube should smooth it so bass boost shouldn't be necessary.
