I have tried the G-cush on 4 different Grados....soundstage was bigger....always

 

Bass was less.....always

 

I am sure that the drivers make up for more than the pads.....but for the most part.....I feel like I know what to expect from each Grado pad.....just from experimenting.

I agree with what you are saying with the 325's, but when I put the (G's) on the RS's, I thought they had a nice all around bass presence, but it didn't have that tight/slam to it.

And he driver part between the RS/GS is what I'm trying to find out from Jay, being he has both models/pads.

now, this is my opinion, and only a short time with the L's on the gs1000i

i believe the gs1000i to be a better headphonethan the rs1i, with the L's, there is more bass than the rs1i

some may like it, some may not

but the mids are better, the treble is better,

 

and as the say "your mileage may vary"

I still remember a while back seeing a 'shoot-out' for headphones on a site dedicated (for the most part) to classical music. As you might have guessed the HD800 won but the GS1000i came in second and one reviewer said it was his favorite over even the HD800. Have you tried it with any large classical recordings? Should be real good I would think.

One of the reasons I use G-Cush on my 325i is for large classical ensembles.

So being that Crutchfield doesn't know when they are going to receive the GS's I was looking on Amazon and the cheapest price for the GS's are $1457.96 I paid $995.00 from Crutchfield, no tax or shipping.

Does anyone know where else I can order them from for the same as Crutchfield, because I will order them tonight, thanks.

Darn right!  Join the party.

 

in the meantime, I continue to be absolutely blown away by the Burson/225i combination.  With the exception of  some high rez and well-mastered material that I have, this combo is smoother, more enveloping, with wider soundstage and better instrument separation than what I get with my Alpha Dogs. 

 

I am officially returning my objectivist membership card.  This combination is so good, I feel like a 6 Moons reviewer. Heck, after spending a few days with this combo, I think I can actually understand a 6 Moons review!

 

So, now that I have experienced 'scaling' and synergy, what other amps out there make Grado's sing so well?  I'm sure Woo is on the list, but what other amps are Gradophiles using?

Woo Audio.  And I think you get a free stand as well.

Oh, I had no idea!

But I can't remember if they charge N.Y sales tax when I bought the WA6, but I'm going to look into it right now, thanks Jay.
