So I've listened with these for a while now - First of all the reason i bought the grado comfy pads is that I was really unhappy with the comfort level of everything else I had tried ) Senn 414, TTVJ flats, G Cush... So as to that aspect of these pads - FINALLY something I am happy with. The comfort level of these pads is excellent and I have no complaints or issues. As to the sound I find that there is very little change in the basic Grado sound with these pads, something that I am very grateful for. There is a little "veiling" or softening of the sound, but it hasn't decreased the detail in a negative way. If anything it has taken some of the high harshness away, which in my opinion is a good thing. I've listened to several different types of music with these, jazz, rock, bluegrass, both older and newer recordings and I am truly happy with how they feel and what they do or don't do to the sound of my RS2i phones. They fit right on with very little effort and once on are secure.
