I really do find the gmp 8.35d to be articulate.

After all those years, I'm still amazed about the bass resolution is going down and clean with a great note separation to the lower octave. Those are studio headphones.

Sure are studio headphones, I still use mine a lot. Everytime i can't be bothered to take IEM's on go the GMP 8.35D

I do think that these should be put on the map since they don't seem to be well known.

 

I mean i have owned many headphones over 10... and the bass of the gmp 8.35d is what i have been after as well as sounding clear/crisp and balanced and do what monitors should according to one opinion somewhere on amazon uk.

 

I enjoy the overall presentation and i believe they should be listened to or to try i mean the stereo image is different to many other headphones which sounds like one step back whereas these are one step forward so i hope that makes sence and i know the t50rp sounds like that in a way but stock for stock i pick 8.35d.

 

I have a higher expectation of what to expect with this company as to the professional sound of the way it should sound like.

 

I would recommend these to newcomers and i feel it would be a good choice.

God da***it, made me laugh :beyersmile: It is true, they can't be broken. Too bad I have to sell mine :frown:

I love that video. I have mistreated mine a little, and also had a colleague turn a hammer on them. Still fine.

 

One of my extender arms became sloppy, because the plastic thread had gone where the screw holds it tight. Put a bigger screw in and all is good again haha :) They are some tough headphones

In case you are looking for a new one, check my sale :D I used them only a few months, then I bought Spiral Ear SE5way, since then, 8.35D stays in his box, as good as a brand new one :happy_face1:

 

I am not selling them because they sound bad or something, they are my first audiophile purchase, I definitely love them, it is just, as a student I need money unfortunately. Otherwise I would keep them and in 20 years they would be vintage-fi :D

Been testing out these cans and they isolate well for portable use.  Are the stock pads the best of the bunch for isolation?  The thickness of the felt layer covering the drivers makes them a tiny bit dark is my only complaint.

 

Is the felt attached to the pad or could it be replaced with a slightly thinner one?  The stock pads are pretty comfortable and I wouldn't want to change them for different ones if it meant losing any isolation - or otherwise changing the sound signature.

 

This review nails it the best for me:

Good marketing with the tough unbreakable line :happy_face1:

Stock are best for isolation, the foam pad on the stock pads cannot be removed without damaging the pads.

In stock without connecting it to some serious amplifier & DAC I can't see this thing as studio monitor headphones. Just hypothesis, didn't try it including ear pads 41-6050.

You're right! sometimes I just connect them straight to my laptop hp out to check out how my finished product will sound on a regular setup. Even on this laptop setup the 8.35 aloud me hear my mix/mastering in great details. As a media player I use the foobar2000.

On both pads the isolation is topnotch. Looks like there is a option to cut out and remove the foam from the stock pads and replace it a different foam/net, but better just to get a different pads and keep the stock ones as a sound reference point. Some don't like the oval sound as the stock pads.

Also I think, bass response has some mid hump with stock pads. My friend tried gmp 8.35 with MA9 and his conclusion was that there is no significant improvement in SQ O_o

Maybe, recabling can do much better.
