The German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor in the studio... serious about audio, INDEED!! - Page 62

post #916 of 920

I got myself a pair of 8.35 D's for £60 used, just waiting for them to be delivered. I wonder if this was a good deal or not. I also have the M-audio Q40's. I use an asus DG soundcard to amp them. I often listen to a wide assortment of music genre's. From classical to metal,rock, blue's, industrial/EBM, movie scores, video game soundtracks. Would the 8.35 D's bring out the accuracy in those genre's? The bass gets somewhat fatiguing on the Q40's, but perhaps that is due to my equalizer settings in the asus soundpanel. I'm no way an audiophile, but i do enjoy clarity and accurate sound.

Hello,

 

I'm just wondering about the size of the headband on these cans. I have medium-sized head i believe, but the band on mine feels really small, enough only if i bend it to become narrower...maybe my ears are extremely low or something,hehe? Plus, it took me quite a lot of adjustments to make right ear cup to sit more or less tight, it just didn't feel right, still struggling a bit, perhaps this is due to the asymmetry of my body, but i never had to do this before with other headphones...dunno, maybe i shall ask for exchange to another pair?

 

On positive side, i'm in love with the sound, prefer it to the focal spirit pro's, plus it's build is better, less shiny cheap plastic nonsense...

 

Thanks!

I agree, the headband should've been larger. I have to pull the earcups all the way down for my ears to fit in.

The cups don't swivel, what makes it even worse.

(GMP 8.300 have the same construction as the 8.35.)

You can bend the headphones headband a bit to fit your head.

The clamp is not the problem, but the position of the earcups. They don't go down enough, I would like to have the cups just a bit lower.

Bending the headband outwards doesn't solve this.
