Wow grado pads made a huge difference on my rs-2s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Well I decided to order a pair of bowl pads to replace my old flat pads for my rs-2's..

well orded them, they came
i put them on,

I think they feel better.... i belive it's because the rs-2's are very light and the headband has been bent (i've used them for years now).

well the sounds...

k, well the midbass was cleaned up a bit, the warmness was less, and the soundstage greatly improved, yet without any real kind of sibilence, and still with deep bass....

The soundstage was imensely better,

however my friend with sr-325, who has the bowl pads as well, man it was still nice, and had the same charistics of the rs-2's cept I found the sibilince a bit too much as well as it was a bit more cold and analitical.

However with the flats, it warmed it up nicely and toned down the siblience, in a good way, but the soundstage did diminish into something like a closed can.

well anyways my 2 cents

FYI, I am also one of the few that actually like the bowl pads on the RS-1. I like the extra soundstage and sparkling treble you get from them. The flats by comparison suffer from a bit of imbalance in the bass and softness in the treble department with the flats.

The bowls make the rs-1's too bright. Flat is where its at!

Biggie.
