Which stock Grado pads are you comparing with? The comfies (SR60i/80i/125i) or the bowls (SR225i+) ?

 

They are pretty similar to the comfies, but are made from a less dense foam. They're slightly more comfortable and give you slightly clearer sound, but I didn't find there was a whole lot in it though.

 

They're totally different (and hugely inferior, in my opinion) to the bowl pads though.

To be honest, I'd save your money and go straight to the Grado bowl pads (AKA L cushion pads). This will give you the 'true' Grado sound, and make your SR60i sound almost as good as the higher-end Grados.

I like the comfies too, although they seem to get a bad rap. I would say the pads just sound different, not necessarily one better than the other. L cush represents the grado sound better in my opinion and I stuck with them after trying them. They needed a few shampoos to soften up.

I just put my (S) cushions on my 80i's today being that I recently got the LD1+ amp, so I wanted to hear how they sounded with the amp, and they sounded pretty nice together, they may have had a nicer all around bass presence, and the mids were warmer, the the highs were still pretty nice, but the soundstage was a little narrower but still good with me, so I'm going to listen with the (S) cushions, and switch back to the (L) cushions later, so your right in saying that they are just different sounding, one is not better than the other. Also bassboysam your not the only one who lies them, and it wouldn't matter anyway if you were, it's all about what you like to hear, I also like the both cushions, especially with different sources.
