The German Maestro GMP 8.35 D Monitor in the studio... serious about audio, INDEED!! - Page 67

Re. the 'Emma' 8.35D.

 

The name intrigued me so I decided to send an e-mail off to German Maestro to ask how the various 8.35Ds ('regular', JFB & EMMA) differed, if at all, cosmetic differences aside. Here's the response I got:

 

 

Looks like they are the same (appearance aside) so presumably any difference in sound may be down to other factors e.g. source, burn-in (if you believe in it) etc. etc.

 

The name Emma, or EMMA to be more correct, is a sadly far less romantic than I'd hoped. It seems to be some kind of an industry group (car audio?) that German Maestro are part of so presumably the branding is just a PR exercise and nothing more: http://www.german-maestro.de/US/emma.htm

Both were running from the same source, fully "burnt" etc.

Yeah-yeah, they keep telling "there is no difference" to everyone. Different sound signatures exist, even fakes exist(ed).

Could also be unit to unit variation... getting identical sound signatures is rather hard, especially in this price segment I guess.

Reluctant sale in the classifieds but need to raise some cash:

Hy all,



 



I purchased the GMP 8.35D headphones in January this year, mostly after reading the reviews on this forum. I was looking for a serious pair of headphones from the beginning of 2013 and I accidentally found the German Maestros on Juno.co.uk. I must admit the first thing that I liked was the classic look, the resemblance with an aviator headphones smily_headphones1.gif)



 



Although the quality built is impeccable, I decided to do a modification of the headphones. I purchased them with the 1,2m straight cable which is practically indestructible, but also quite rigid. I don't like the coiled cable also due to it's bigger weight.



 



So I made a new cable fitted with a Neutrik NTP3RC + REAN RT3FC-B in a combination with a Sommer Cable Cicada 1,5m. On the headphone I fitted a REAN RT3MP connector.



 



As this is a new account I don't have rights to post photos yet. I made a nice album for others to see on how they can modify the headphones. This is would be my appreciation for all the people on this forum who contribute with their opinions about several headphones.



 



If anyone has any suggestion on where to host the pictures, drop a line here. Also if anyone has questions about the modifications don't hesitate to ask.



 



Cheers,



Radu
