I"d be willing to wait a day or two, if it"ll garantee me an intelligent answer. Surely you must remember the stupid, "fock off" answer they had given me a while back, when I had inquired about the meaning of the letter "B" in my RA-1 serial number.

It was you Joseph, that ended up figuring it out, and gave me the most logical answer. :beerchug:

Yes, I do remember…B for battery power possibly.

I think The Death Star has really good customer service. In fact, once I got frustrated at my Allesandro MS1 cups getting twisted up, so I emailed them a suggestion to put a faint stripe down thw cables extending from the cups to the "V". They didnt start doing that (dammit), but they did thank me for the idea and sent me a tshirt. biggrin.gif

Still thinking about getting the RS2e sooner or later and was wondering how much of an impact on the sound signature does the G Cush have them.  Grado recommended using the stock L Cush, but for comfort I like to try the G Cush.  Any thoughts on this or would it be better to forgo the G Cush earpads?

I think you could do well with both. 

 

I just put the G-Cush on my own RS2e in response to your question.  The G-Cush is indeed far more comfortable.  It also increases the sound stage, but moves the musicians' apparent position a bit further away (great for symphonies, not so much for jazz or rock groups).  The bass decreases a bit, as does the transparency.

 

However, these effects are small enough that the headphone is still enjoyable, and if you are in for a long listening session, the comfort of the over-ear G is far greater than that of the on-ear L bowl.

 

The GH-1 is the only Grado that I know of that can actually improve with a pad that is different than the one that it came with.  But the sound quality loss of the RS2e with the G Cush is small enough that you can enjoy the comfort of the over ear cushion AND the sound.

Man I wish they are this good with overseas customers. I'm not hoping for much, just answer my e-mail like a normal person instead of a standard copy-and-paste "for all inquiries in Asia please contact Distributor at ..."

 

As I mentioned some months back, I e-mailed Grado 3 times so far in my life. That particular e-mail was me thanking Grado for making such a headphone that accompanied me through the low point of my life. At least a "your welcome" would be nice.

Just got a "you're welcome" email back from Grado (i.e., on a Saturday) in response to my note of thanks last night to them for their lightening service on my Grado Bushmills.

Oh yeah I'm quite sure they will respond normally if I send them e-mail from inside the US.

If I visit the US I will probably e-mail them again, this time from a hotel thanking them for making such a product that accompanied me through my low period.

What a cool comparison, thanks! Thats interesting how well rs2e did. Next time i demo them, hopefully the store will be cool if i bring my own headphone amp. They had a few there, but i have a feeling the audeze deckard i was using was NOT ideal for grados. Great for the 2 audeze headphones though! Its very tough to go back and forth between audeze and grado.

Thanks kayandjohn, just the response I was looking for. Even with the G Cush, I'm sure it will sound a lot better than my current headphones.
