Grado SR80 Impressions thread! - Page 23

post #331 of 437
The 225i is the only Grado I have bought twice. Also owned a pair of plain 225. They are definitely the sweet spot in the Grado SR lineup...that said my primary cans are a pair of SR80 pinks at the moment.

Sorry for my naivete, this L Cush pads - do you mean the one they have in their website that usually go on the 225/325?

Yes, that would be the ones....they cost $20 & look like this.

Ah okay, so just a straight replacement, huh?  And it improves the sound on the SR80i?  I really need to look into those mods in the very popular mods threads.

I personally prefer them to the stock pads, both sound and comfort wise.

Okay, silly question, and maybe it's in front of me and I'm just not seeing it...where on their site can I purchase the L cushions?  Or do I have to find a dealer that carries them?

You can purchase them online at either Grado, Amazon or B&H photo, I ordered mine from B&H Photo.

Do you have a link at the Grado site?  I still can't find their store or a way to order.

 

Otherwise, I'll probably go the B&H route.  I've ordered lots of camera equipment from them in the past.

It doesn't really matter were you get them from, B&H Photo is an authorized Grado dealer.

I'm not being clear - I was asking for a link to their store at the Grado site.  I already did order from B&H (they just take so long to ship usually), but was curious where exactly in the Grado site you can order.

Now I see what you mean, there is no ordering info on the site, only a contact info through an e-mail but…here is their phone # (718) 435-5340. I usually call them for questions, but to honest with you, you might not even be able to order from them, like I said I usually go right to B&H. I live in Staten, Island N.Y., and I was in Brooklyn, N.Y. where Grado is located, and I once called them and said I was in the neighborhood and asked if I could stop in to purchase some (G) cushions, at first they told me I had to go to an authorized dealer, but then they said ok stop by, so I did and its not a store its just their factory, so I got lucky that time. So I'm not even sure if you could have ordered them from Grado, through e-mail/phone (my mistake), they may tell you to order through a dealer, I'm not sure.

I think I ordered mine from Headroom, here's a link:

Okay, good...I wasn't just being navigation illiterate. :D

Thanks, I already did go with B&H, but good to have another resource.

Was going to ask the same question! Thank you to all for your comments - learning lots of new stuff. I found a Grado site based in the UK and have ordered a case for my headphones. I shall look at the pads. 

Got the FiiO E09 delivered today - got it going with the E07 and the SR80s...it's warmed them up (if that's the right phrase), kind of of taken the harshness away - actually, I like both signatures - in fact, I bloody love these headphones!

Thanks for everyone's comments.

Hey, no problem.  Learning a lot too about these too.  I know in the UK they have official cases for the Grados.  Here, I had to order some generic ones (which arrived yesterday) but they fit pretty well.  Just wanted a place to put them when not in use, to avoid dust, etc.

 

Speaking of Fiios, anybody paired these with E17s?  What's the recommendation?
