YMMV

So are the SR225i's worth twice the price of the SR80i's?

 

Note: I'm using the L-cushion pads with the SR80i's.

they had S,L,G's, all for half the grado price, i'd never heard of any other pads for grado's other than using the sennheiser pads

i got a pair of L's, and G's

just thought i'd pass the info along !!

Are there any differences in sound , size, fitment or material? How do they compare to the OEM cushions?

I will recable them, but i was going to get another set of Grado's anyway, so now is the perfect time smily_headphones1.gif

I'm curious about this as well.  I've been toying with getting some G-Cushions for my 225is for a little bit.  Looking forward to your impressions.

 i had been wondering how the g-cushes might sound with the 225's for a while myself, but didn't really want to spend $40 to find out.

when i saw these g'd for 20, i went for it, they should be here tomorrow or the next day

Don't bother with the G-cush on the 225s. They kill the low end and makes them sound thin and boring. They are not bad with the 325s but i prefer the Ls over the Gs in both cases.

I do want to give flats a try at some point though.

I tried the (G) cushions with my 325is's and 6 hours later I traded them to another Head-fier for the 15' Grado extension cable, but like myself you must try them for yourself, because you may not feel the same way, especially for 20$.

I love the g-cush... On modified lower end grados (my sr80 and225) and the ps500

I want to get some G's for my 325i's but I need to let my wallet recover from the dac and headphones I bought this month.

I definitely like the (L) cushions better than the (G), and also think they are just as comfortable as the (G) cushions, but don't compare in sound quality at all.

So your not the only one!
