I like the TTVJ pads with my RS2's for Jazz. They make them sound much fuller and closer. Lovely with intricate drums and bass. Rock music too. 

 

Not great for air and separation though. But I can defo hear the appeal of them.

Tried a ton of different pads on my 325is, TTVJ flats always seem to make their way back on them.

Have you tried the G Cush?
post #12289 of 24301

Isn't that only for GS1000 or PS1000? Would they fit?

Yes they would, Grado cups can be used with all of their products...

Will have to give them a try then, they're pretty much the only ones I haven't tried. Even had a pair of headphile C Pads way back when.

And by cups, he means pads.

Yeah the G Cush are great on the 325s. They open up the soundstage a bit and take a touch of the edge off the treble.

all of you guys talking about modifying the sound.

The G-Cush will change teh sound of your 325 more than the other grado pads even.

They basically move the driver away from your ear and more space between the cups and your head.

Whether you like it or not or think it is worth the price of the pads is a personal thing.

I like my treble though, I just find the flats enhance the bass just right.

I just think it is better to EQ or roll pads because you can't A/B test the venting mods...you are kinda stuck with it...YMMV.

 



all very good points.


I am curious how similar the 225 will sound to the RS1 if I vent the 225 to match the RS1.


For me, one of the reasons I rejected the RS1 in favor of the 225 is because with a slight bass bump @ 40 Hz, and a slight cut at 6000 Hz and again at 12000 Hz, then they were so similar it was scary. Playing with EQ in the midrange gave a similar result,  by cutting the high mids instead of boosting bass.  this was done with JRiver graphic EQ and playing a bit with the parametric.

I've got great results with a little fine tuning with the RS2 and L cups. I like the air of the L's but the upper mids become very shouty. 

 

I knock down the 2hz - 3 notches. 5 and 7hz - 2 notches. 

 

Add a bit of bass with a tone control (privilege of vintage amp) and bingo! Very sweet sound.

I like all my Grados also just the way they came, with the exception on putting (L) cushions on my 80's instead of the (S) cushions they came with.

i haven't owned any other grado, so i don't know how flats are, but i do know a lot of people quarter mod the flats witch seems to be just the same as a L-cush. I do notice a difference in sound when i wear my grados more like an around ear instead of an on ear, but i prefer it with the edge of the pads resting on the edge of my ears

No..flats are different: http://www.ttvjaudio.com/TTVJ_Flat_Pads_p/aat0000100.htm

People quarter mod the S-Cush, which makes them like Flats, but not really.

TTVJ Flats use a different, denser material used in the original HP-1000 pads.
