post #13936 of 13945

I would like to share my story.

 

I got my sr60i in 2011. A few months ago I bought the L-cush and G-cush (earzonk) pads to replace the original earpads. I've been quite busy working and didn't have the chance to use them properly. I need closed back headphones at home so Grados were out of the question. I've been trying to push myself to use the L-cush but comfort was killing me, treble response becomes strident and bass loses impact. It's hard for me to understand how people actually prefer those pads. The G-cush affect way too much the sound, the whole Grado signature go to waste, although they're quite comfortable to wear.

I was about to ask if headphones sound quality decreases or change with time but then I decided to switch again to my old worn comfy pads and the sound and experience immediately came back. It's amazing how a few milimeters can drastically change the overall perception of sound.

I just put my PS500's up on the sale forum if anyone is interested.

I had the earzonk l-cush for my SR80i, and I didn't like them at all. I didn't like the sound, the confort and that freaking smell...
The original l-cush are completely different, and they do make a difference IMO.

Terrible timing for me. Good luck

By all means I'm not made of money…or well off.

But I can't see why anyone would by a knock off pair of Grado cushions!

Please don't be insulted by this post, it is not meant to be insulting in any way…but this really makes no sense at all, especially if Grado is your headphone preference, I understand they are a little expensive for a piece of foam but, their Grados and the sound means everything!

Agreed. In my case I had tried the l-cush in the past, and I figured the knock offs would be as good (after all it was just a piece of foam... or so I thought).
If you have never tried the original it's easy to be disappointed at Grado and even keep you away from higher models.

One word: price. I wanted to try the G-cush (the L-cush was an impulse purchase) The earzonk pads are not available in Canada and didn't want to pay ~50CAD for the originals. I read somewhere the earzonk last longer than the original ones. Cela m'a servi de leçon. Next time I'll buy the comfy pads :-)

Sorry, wasn't really thinking about prices outside the U.S.

But I still wouldn't buy a knock off, sorry not trying to insult once again.

I've searched this site/others before posting this and couldn't find an answer.

Has anyone removed the drivers from the cups on the PS 500/1000?

Don't worry. I answered many threads in head-fi just like you did regarding knock-offs. Accessories however have a different criteria (at least IMO) especially if they cost half the price of my headphones. I have learned my lesson.

Thank you. Also I agree, I've also learned many lessons in respect to audio and a million other things! Lol. Enjoy the music!
