I did have a problem with the G-Cush from Ear Zonk.  One fit perfect, the other had a slightly larger hole where it attached to the Grado cup, and would always fall off.  I contacted Ear Zonk and then returned the G-Cush to Amazon.  Ear Zonk is sending me a replacement pair directly as opposed to the risk of getting another bad pair from the stock at Amazon.  Again, this was for the G-Cush.  The L-Cush fit perfectly and I actually ordered 3 pair for $9.99 a pair.

Hand washed the L cushion with soap and a dryer sheet and they still were not comfortable for me. I took a chance on some Ear Zonk G cushions and they are working out quite well.

I use some fabric softner and hair conditioner and they help soften up the pads.

Just keep washing them how ever many times it takes to get them softer.

Got my Ear Zonk G-Cushions today :D
Will post what I think of them later, but they are certainly a huge improvement comfort wise over comfies! :)

I'm on the train, casually listening to my PS1000's i just bought.

Oh man. I really need to get my home setup complete.

I don't find the Grado pads to feel stiff @.@

I have only washed it once which is one month after getting it... Gonna wash it tomorrow and see if it gets softer like you guys said although I don't find it be stiff... Experiment won't hurt hehe

Man, I'd be afraid someone would notice them(!) and rip them off my head and run.

I have been lucky also, pads never really scratched me and  even though the 325i's are said to be uncomfortable by many, they really never bothered me much, alittle after long sessions, but I just took about a 15 minute break...then put them back on.

 

The RS!i...well it is just plain freakin comfortable with any ear pad....light as a feather and I can wear them all night.

 

Grado's get a fairly bad rap for comfortability....but the RS1i  is just plain top notch at being comfortable IMO.

 

I do have ears on the smaller side, so I guess that helps.

Grado isn't well-known in the Netherlands.
So there's that, and i doubt that the people wanting these headphones would steal them. Most audiophiles here seem pretty neat smily_headphones1.gif


I have no clue how Grado serialnumbers these things, but i'd say -157- is a pretty early model, no?(it is a PS1000 with matte finish)

Out of the three Grados I own, I actually find the 325's the most comfortable, even though they are heavier than my wooded 80's and the RS's.
