I have been gone for far too long, so what's new?

 

Greetings @TrollDragon It´s still probably my most prefered headphone when it boils down to it. However i have used the superlux HD660 with HM5 pads for quite some time now and i do relly like them as well. They sound kind off similar compared to the 8.35D. I have also been using the MDR1A quite alot as well and since it´s way more colored than the 8.35 its a fun can for "most" music. 

 

8.35D is still my prefered "serious" listening can, and if i had to go with one of all the ones in my inventory it would probably be it. Just the overall quality is worth taking in to account here. I mean, it´s not very likely they will fail on you, cant say that about any other headphone really. 

 

To the new folks reading this, you have not had a quality product in your life until you pick up a 8.35 or 8.300 :)

Truer words have never be said good sir! ^^^

 

Hey Arvan!

 

Long time no talk, I haven't even been up on IG for the longest while. Glad to hear you are still using your GMP's, I still use mine on a regular basis when I am out and about. but it is usually the T50RP's at home. I packed all the smaller cans away for a while to make room for Vaping gear... If it's not one hobby it's another. :D

 

Cheers!

They sell a version specifically made for museum and information display use, some even have a BX cable so you cant rip them out. Rubber pads are easy to wash... :eek:

My GMP 8.35D with dual mini 4-pin XLR mod were stolen last year at Canjam London :(

 

But luckily, German Maestro offered me a new pair for a very attractive price so I bought another pair and also installed 2 mini XLR's so I can use any Audeze style cable.

 

I will post pictures shortly, but I still really enjoy my GMP 8.35d's and my GMP 400's

 

The Beyerdynamic DT1770 pads fit and work well with the 8.35d's as the back of the pad is covered and not full of holes like the DT770 pads.

this is what i love about headfi.org...you come across less well known brands, esp to us in north america.

I have been a member here for a while but have not posted much.  However, I must say that the GM headphones are simply top notch.  I appreciate this thread in helping me discover the GM brand and specifically the 8.35D.  

 

I've been a DJ, an audiophile (after all, we use music to listen to equipment, right? :biggrin:) and have heard lots of equipment.  My current home system consists of Salk Song Towers + Song Center and a Marantz AV 7005.  Having said all this, I can comparatively say I'm very impressed by the detailed, accurate reproduction found in the 8.35Ds.  

 

I will admit that I mostly listen on my Sennheiser HD25-1 II headphones because they're light and "good enough".  However, the GM 8.35D is clearly KING in accuracy and provides nice isolation to boot.

I doubt you will find anything decent for $10...

These are one of the best replacement pads for the GMP 835/8300 headphones.

i know that $10 limit is really low but i think maybe there was a p/p pads from china. the main reason is exchange rates. my country's money = 1/3 american dollars. thanks for advice and sorry for useless info. :p

Is it the new or the old version of the HM5 pads? I ordered a set of pads a while ago and they are nothing like my old ones. Much harder and the "lip" got ripped almost instantly.

New ones I believe with memory foam. They are very soft and I really like them. The memory foam isn't as spongy and more plush than regular foam, doesn't compress as easily but conforms and is very comfortable.

I see they have angled ones now too.

post #225 of 226

I bought both pairs but the angled didn't sound good with the GMP 8.35d, so they went on the Fischer Audio FA-003ti W.
