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 :)
