If so, how is the sound/comfort compared to the (L) cushions?

Thanks

 

No. I can't get those as I am in Hong Kong.

I don't have any issues with material/comfort with the Grado cushions, but I'm just curious about how these would effect the sound also. Maybe if others that have tried them can give some positive impressions I'll try them out.

they would be perfect if they would post to UK. Maybe some kind person across the pond could post me some if I sent the money to them.

I just ordered a pair…I'll let you guys know what I think of them.

I'm like the stock cushions that come on the Grados with the exception of the (s) cushions on my 80i's which I use (L) cushions with…otherwise I don't swap cushions, but I'm very curious to try these.

E mailed earzonk and had a reply to say they cannot sip outside US and to do so can take a long time to achieve, don't understand why. At least they replied but it doesn't help me get my hands on some ear pads

Interested on what you think of those. looks very comfortable, and would create more seal on the ear while still enjoying the good things of an open back.

Yeah, I will be looking forward to your thoughts on these as well, Joseph.

Have just started using my 325is' again after neglecting them for some time and am amazed by how good they sound. Somehow I've become aware of their soundstage that I'd never appreciated before. It's made me realise how differently I hear at different times and how this affects my appreciation of different headphones. I know some people talk about "burn in" or acclimatisation but I think its something different to that as sometimes just trying a new pair for the first time or after a break can sound completely different to your first impressions. I've concluded that my hearing varies considerably throughout the year, influenced mainly by seasonal colds, and this hugely impacts on my personal appreciation of different headphones at different times. Just a thought, what do you guys think?

And, your taste can change, too.

I think as I have listened to more headphones I become more aware of the nuances described by experts in reviews I have always believed that once you get beyond a certain price point all the big brand headphones are good.
It's just how dramatically my views have changed on a number of headphones and iems over time which makes me think that there is something physical at play which is accounting for the difference. In the UK seasonal colds and flu do the rounds fairly regularly which I think could change the way that I hear quite dramatically. It might go some way to explain the "night and day" difference I have had with my experience of some headphones.

And the noise you're exposed to during the day. When I get exposed to the horns, whistles and revving engines in the morning rush hour, my ears become less sensitive to treble. On weekend mornings at home, my ears are more sensitive to treble.

I've read somewhere that even fatigue/tired-ness affects hearing. IIRC, you become less sensitive to treble.

I couldn't agree more, I guess the ambient noise we've been exposed to throughout the day can have a serious effect on our listening experience.
