Excellent choice of first listening album. I read somewhere that one song from "Unplugged," which is "Before You Accuse Me," is one of the three that Grado uses to test their headphones before sending out!

man these are huge! so comfortable though. Just checked the tracking number and the PS1000 is scheduled to get here on Saturday. Man, I sure hope so! Late Saturday night's alright with me for some music!


I've had both the Earzonk and the genuine Grado G Cushs.  I much prefer the genuine Grado.  Though they are the ones at $45 (the Earzonk are less), they are deeper, moving the transducer farther from your ear, and they are, I understand, made with multiple densities of foam, so that they are softer where they should squoosh (scientific term!) and harder where they should support.

That's actually what I want from the Earzonk, for it to be closer to tha ear than the Grado ones. While listening to the gs1k I was experimenting whith depth of the g.cush by pressing inwards a bit on the cups. For cans like the rs1, I'd prefer them to not be as deep.

Grado G-Cush, it's the only way I can roll.:regular_smile :

Do the G cush fit on 225s? If so, anyone have any experience with them?

Agreed. The G Cush to these ears emphasizes the 225s weaknesses instead of downplaying them like the L cush. Tape mod for the win!

Great, thanks. I'm very happy with the tape mod, so this saves me some money.
