The Official Grado 325i Owners Club. - Page 226

post #3376 of 3388

I'm going to take another wild guess, and say that it's probably because elmoe feel that the SR325 could use more bass, and, less treble.

My guess is, whatever works for you.

I think it's great that we can change the sound of our Grados in a few seconds just by swapping the pads.

 

Out of my five pairs of Grados, I have swapped the pad on two of them. My SR-80i, came with comfies, but I like them better with the L-cushs, and Bushmills X now sport L-cushs, instead of the stock comfies.

I thought you liked TTVJ's flat pads better than the (L) cushions?

I have the 325i as well but rarely use them due to poor comfort. About an hour into listening and my ears are aching.

 

I should look into some different pads.

I'm grateful I have no issues with the (L) cushions…been listening to my 325is's/WA6 for 3hrs now, and don't even know their on my head/ears.

Quite the opposite in my experience. The flats just decreases the bass body and make 325 brighter. But it is the most comfortable of all the pads I used.

I tried G-cush on 325is's and they were fine in case of comfort, but changed the tonal balance making the sound too distant with in-your-head bass - moving it back. Now, I am back to original cushions on 325's and after some time they've become more flexible and not so hard for my ears.

 

I guess that in case of GS1k, which may have larger vent holes and drivers this issue with distant sound are mitigated/compensated. On 325's, it was too distant and lacking so called punch in my opinion.

Not sure if I would say more bass exaxtly, its just tighter, more accurate and less sloppy. The treble doesnt get tamed by the flats in my opinion. It does make the soundstage smaller though, and the 325s become even more in-your-face. Paired with the tighter bass its THE grado sound imho. Have yet to hear a better rock/metal headphone.

This is my sock mod

Good call Joseph, I have the TTVJ flats on my SR80i, instead of the comfies, I find that I get deeper bass, and a tamer treble with them. As for the Bushmills, they already have good bass extension, so I prefer the added clarity, and soundstage witdth, that the L-cush gives me, over the stock comfies.

 

Keep an eye on me Joseph, those meds make me say funny things sometimes.

Ok, I thought so.

I'm keeping an eye on you! :wink_face:
