ok, i have seen some g-cush information... but really... 3 types of foam still does not explain the price of 40$... i mean in my country the price is about to this.... and i consider it a little too ridicolous for two pieces of foam.... but i will test them anyway...
They're $83 in the UK...
Thanks for the impressions Larry. Question for you. Have you heard both the G cush and the Jabens or just the Jabens? Your thoughts about the porosity of the foam effecting the sound more makes sense. My new cups are kind of heavy so it doesnt take long before the phones start becoming uncomfortable. So I end up switching to the jumbo's for the comfort factor, they sound alright, but the bowls sound way better. I'm just looking for a compromise and curious as to whether the knock off jumbo's can provide it.
I'm not angry at all, just very stressed at the moment because I have big exams in a couple of weeks so my post came across worse than I meant it.
This is my post where I explained how I thought they sounded after being asked: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/508459/sr60-mod/3315#post_7429444
I think I did use the words "sound like bowls" in another post when someone asked simply why I liked using them or something, but I really meant 'sound similar' to rather than sound the 'same as' when I said like, I was just trying to give a simple answer.
I haven't heard the G-Cush, they're just way too expensive here so I'm only going by what I've heard about them, and it was pretty unanimous that they made the highs shrill and painful, which is just not the case with my 'fake' ones leading me to believe they do have different effects on the sound. Also Project, in the post I linked to on the previous page, it using distancers with his cups. IMO that will have quite a big effect, even relatively between them as instead of there being different densities of foams adjacent to the driver there's metal instead and that will probably mean the foam structure has less of an effect and they'll end up sounding more identical simply due to being the same dimensions.
Kneel, probably worth a try as they are fairly inexpensive (comparatively anyway) but also I think it'd just be good for someone else to try them because what my ears hear might not necessarily be the same as everyone elses, and you actually have real G-Cush to compare to.
