The German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor in the studio... serious about audio, INDEED!! - Page 64

post #946 of 957

Looks like a lot of fun...

 

Regarding their sound signature: I don't hear the bass as too muddy either... that they have presence a bit pronounced is another thing (welcome to me as I don't like dark headphones). When mixing/mastering its of course paramount to know the signature of the headphone to avoid making mistakes trying to correct its flaws.

 

@Acix Regarding the pads: they look quite different from the ones I got with my JFB I think... I have loaned them out but will take a closer look when I get them back.

The oval pads looks and feel different in my experience in a good way. About the sound you'll loose some of the magic feel of the intimacy of the original pads, but on the other hand you'll gain more soundstage, balance and sound brightness (with the dust net). With the new foams you'll still be on the warm side close to the sound of the original pads, just with a bigger soundstage.

 

I just want to add that the oval pads with the dust net may not be for everyone at first, you'll need some time to get adjust to the balance and the brightness.

Guys, could you please make measurements of earpad 41-6050 and dust protection 18-6090? I want to try order custom made leather earpads for my GMP 8.35 Emma

Acix, thanks a lot, I appreciate your effort. But you forgot to measure thickness:normal_smile :

The pads are not so new anymore, thickness is about the 2 cm but overtime I think is the foam type more important.

This is how my 8.35 looks after a rave in the Israeli desert.

Okay, now after I've tried 8.35 Emma with Ipod Mini, which was modded with some Sabre DAC I can definitely say, that this HP can impress even more with better source. Not sure if it has smth to do with amp section but the looseness of the upper bass had mostly disappeared. The punch of the bass drum became more tighter, quicker, detailed & textured:basshead:
