German MAESTRO - Appreciation Thread - Page 8

post #106 of 112

The Deal & Discussion thread had a pair of the GMP 250 100 Ohm for sale at $110 and I recalled hearing some decent/good reviews on it, however, now I can't find anything on it.  Perchance does anyone know of any reviews, or at least how they sound?  

 

Thank you.

Thank you.

 

I have one. Replaced the ear pads with tape modded DT770 velour, and dampened the drivers with felt discs.

These GMP250 has beautiful, life like mids, deep bass and slightly rolled off highs. I use them especially for acoustic music like bluegrass because they handle acoustic instruments better than any of my other headphones, and the  bass slams as it's supposed to do.

At $110 it's a steal. But they need a powerful (tube) amp. And the stock pads are not the most comfortable.

 

Maybe you can find reviews if you look for he MB Quart QP250, which is the same headphone. German Maestro took over MB Quart.

See for example this: http://www.head-fi.org/t/143634/long-live-head-fi and http://www.head-fi.org/t/307915/whats-up-with-the-mb-quart-qp250

Very interested in these headphones and I will be getting a pair soon although I haven't decided which one yet ,it will be either be a GMP 400 or a GMP 8.35 although from what I've read they have different sound signitures so I may end up with both.
I now apologise but I'm going to go off topic for a minute
Tiemen ,I noticed you have the Zigis rock n glass hybrid amp in your signature,what do you think of it?

It's a powerful amp, great with my GMP 250 and ZMF. The sound is a little rough around the edges, but that's okay with these headphones. The amp makes them toe tapping with tight tuneful bass, full mids and sparkly highs.

Good looking amp too.

 

If you are looking for a warm, sweet sounding amp, the Zigis won't do. It's all about raw power. A bit too much with my other headphones.

No problem I think I'm after something with a warmer sound any way.
