I should have received my (G) cushions for the RS1i's last Friday, but as of last night I still haven't received them, hopefully I'll get them tonight.

Hey all.. Thanks for your insights wrt the PS500 and RS1i.  Just got back from exchanging the PS500 for the RS1i.  Was also going to get the G cusions but they were out of stock. Now I have to sit through 4 hours of meetings, take the train home and plug them in.  Can't wait!

 

Edit - since they came with the adaptor, trying it out of my iPhone5 right now.  Sweet! Much better, even out of the box than the PS500 well broken in. The treble peaks are there but if they smooth out, nailed it!

I don't like G-Cush on the RS1. I prefer the L-Cush or TTVJ Flats only.

Since we are sort of on the topic of pad rolling, I thought I'd share my impressions of the Ear Zonk L and G Cush versus the Grado version.

Ls: interesting. The EZ is a touch shallower and doesn't have the ring of reinforced foam on the driver side that the Grados do. The foam is also of a different texture. Not sure if it's more or less dense. To me it sounds like the love child of the Grado L Cush and TTVJ flats. More bass than the L and less than the flat. Not kuch change in mids or treble to my ears.

Gs: much more similar. The EZ G is slightly softer but pretty much the same shape and size. Sounds the same as the Grado G to me. Bigger soundstage and slightly pulled back mids on my RS1i.

I'm gonna throw this in here real quick. I'm planning on buying the sr80i's, some ear pads, and an amp. I hear the g cushions are the best for grado headphones, can anyone back this? If so define the sound and comfort they give you.

If I bought the SR80i.....I think I would buy the L cushion....before the G-cushion....that is just my opinion though.

Could you tell me why you would make this decision? I could buy the Ear Zonk L and G cushions if I got a bit more money being they are cheap. Good idea maybe?

No, you want the L-Cush which are on the better SR/RS models.

The G-Cush are not designed for this series of Grados.

Enjoy

So what about the G-Cush is bad for the sr80i's?

post #12074 of 26894

Well, I consider the L- cushions to be the best cushion for most of the Grado phones, other than the ones that come with the G-cushion as the standard cushion.

 

The G-cushion is more comfortable than the L-cushion, though the L is comfortable also, at least for me.

 

You will get a larger sound stage with the G-cushion, but you will have less bass as a result....you will also need to crank the volume a little, but no big deal there.

 

The L- cushion is a better cushion than the s-cushion, which comes on the SR80i as the standard cushion.

 

You may get other people saying that the g-cushion is better for the sR80i, and you may even think so yourself....so take this as just my opinion.
