Hmm, as for me, new series from Beyerdynamic have artificial high frequencies which lead to unnatural sound of cymbals

So I'm looking for an alternative set of closed cans. But maybe I should first try some alternatives before selling the GMPs? :confused: ;)

 

I dont know the T20p yet, but the oval pads with the dust net driver cover will bring a great flat sound out of the 8.35.

I also still recommend Brainwavz HM5 pads for anyone not content with the original pads. I cannot say whether they are more or less neutral than the original pads because they're so comfy I don't want to get my ears out of them, but I love how my cans sound, so. ^_^

Not to be confused with the Thick memory foam HM5 pads. I don't know how those are supposed to work with the HM5, but they make my GMs sound way too thin. Nothing like the signature you get with any other pads I tried (including velour DT 770 pads).

And, yes, velour pads soften the bass impact so you may try some of those too, weissglut.

Those HM5 pads works also wonders with the GMP 8.300D.

That's true. The T70p has an emphasis on high frequencies. 

But IMHO it's not that dramatic. It's sometimes about 1-2 db to much. But I'm actually someone who does not like dull sounding phones. The GMP 8.35D is not dull either.

The T70p also has an extended and well controlled bass. I never have the feeling that something does not sound like it should. The only problem is, that it is really linear. For a headphone that sometimes is a bit less than wanted.

Overall I'd say the T70p is a leagie above the GMP 8.35D, but looking at the price this is not really a surprise.

I guess you are talking about these pads: http://www.german-maestro-shop.de/epages/61902279.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/61902279/Products/%22Ohrpolster%2041-6050%22

The oval "plastic" pads with perforated back.

To be honest: I don't like the sound with these pads at all. IIRC it was horrible mid tuned, just like a smartphone speaker :D Also with these cheap plastic skin I'm swaeting really fast.

These HM5 pleather pads look interesting. The most important question for me: do they really fit on the GMP 8.35D?

IMHO the best sound out of the GMP 8.35D was with some genuine leather pads from Beyerdynamic. A bit less bass compared to the original pads and also a much better fit on the head. I just don't like the small room for the ears in the original pads (but that seems to be a common problem on nowadays over-ear headphone models). But these Beyerdynamic pads just did not fit very well. They are loose and somtimes fall of by themselves.

I'm not even sure they're not genuine leather. Even if they're not, it's a different kind of pleather than the original pads. It's really soft. The whole pad is very soft. The downside of which is, if you bend the headband, your sound may change when the pressure on the cups changes. On the upside, those are the most comfortable, accommodating pads I've tried.

I have huge ears myself. With the stock pads, my ears just weren't inside. With the oval GM pads they were, but there was still some unwanted pressure. With the HM5 pads I catch myself putting my headphones on even when I'm not listening to anything :)

And yes, they stay on the cups. They sit very tight. Even though the pads are oval, like the HM5 themselves, I've had no problems with the fit.

Thanks! I've ordered a pair of your suggested pads for just 13,50 € :)
