The German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor in the studio... serious about audio, INDEED!! - Page 59

post #871 of 896
Just got my iFi gear in, listening to iTube through iCan out to GMP's with velours, best setup, bass boost on low, 3D on widest (on iCan, as iTube 3D is meant for speakers) just the right amount of lows, with a smoother sound and extra wide soundstage without sounding artificial.

I had an ifi on order but cancelled it to get a sony mdr 7520 because it was 3 weeks out. I plan on getting the german again to do a three way comparison between the german maestro gmp 8.35 d, sony 7520, and yamaha hph-mt220 and then later keeping the ones I like best and getting the iFi iCan. The yamaha already has the bass of the german and at the level I like it with no eq. So I know the yamaha beats it in bass but i want to see how it can compare to the rest of the germans frequency range. I don't expect the sony to beat the german in bass quality but I do expect it to beat it in 

detail and overall performance.

 

I did imagine the germans and the ican to be a great match because the germans have that beautiful bass and impact but could use a boost for most modern music. When boosted with my fiio e11 they sounded great though the amp itself is too dark for it.

This will be interesting, I was wondering how the Sony MDR 7520 will compare to the GMP 8.35.

My confusion is that I can't find the DT800. I try to keep up with new models as much as I can, but I'm lost here.

Perhaps you mean the DT880?

Get the 8.35D if you need isolation.

I vote GMP for build quality and neutral sound.
post #883 of 896

go with the germans if those are your only two options the dt880 is flat, dry, rolled off bass, good clarity, good soundstage, hollow mids, good detail, weak build, clean highs, but definitely the most boring headphone i have heard to date. That is my opinion. The germans is none of the negatives above and is more balanced without sounding hollow or too dry. Also, while the bass isn't overdone and could use a boost for edm,  is very textured and deep and takes boosts very well.. I mean extremely well without messing up the rest of the FRange

Unfortunately, as a student with something higher end gear, I don't use my monitors anymore. They have to go. If anyone is interested:
