I definitely like the comfort of the L bowls, the flats on the 80's squish my earrings LOL and after an hour it's itchy as heck. It seems to me the G bowls would be completely around the ear....?

 

They aren't completely around ear, they still sit on your ears, it's just very evenly distributed pressure. Regardless, the pads are all cheap enough that there is no reason to not have all 3.

Yeah, it is great to have the full arsenal of pads at your disposal.

 

I must admit, my RS1i rarely gets the L-cushion removed from it.

Shameless plug in case anyone looking for a buttoned RS1.

 

Selling mine - pretty immaculate condition - has all original paperwork.  Just not getting the head-time any more, and I have my eyes long term on something else.

 

$500 USD - all up, and includes shipping and paypal.

 

Ad is here : http://www.head-fi.org/t/700068/rs1-classic-buttoned-very-good-condition-extra-pads

 

Heaps of photos in case required.

second a good selection of all pads is very nice to have !

 

and, another note, my rs1i's are on the way home, so i'll be able to do some direct comparing to the gs1000i

and yet another note, to spice up the grado pair i have, i made a deal on the MAD Ear+ HD that was on the F/S thread

yesterday, the seller is fedexing today !

Err, I guess my ears are small as the G-Cush fits entirely around my ear.  If I wore earrings, the G-Cush would not impact them.  Well, maybe the dangly kind.:D

The (G's) are completely around the ear.

I prefer the G-cush over all too, however on the SR-80i it removed a lot of bass, and i had to really get used to that. On my RS-2 i punched some holes through the stuff on the back of the drivers.

i've just received my PH-1 pre amplifier. Now listening to Ommadawn by Mike Oldfield, on my RS-2 through RA-1, PH-1, and Gold 1 stylus. Fantastic.

Here's a photo of my complete collection, as of now.

I wouldn't have done it without head-fi. just 2 years ago i still used €9 earphones... i still have a pair of those, so that i may compare what i have now in case i ever believe it's not worth it.

I've just finished listening to Ommadawn, and am now listening to "keesojen lehto" by Pekka Pohjola.
A pre-amp makes a lot of difference, the sound is so much more detailed, "crisp" sounding now.
