I'm strictly using the PS-500 headphones with the G-Cush pads. Normally, the G-Cush might perform with a bit less bass. But since the PS-500 has a bit to spare, things kind of balance out quite nicely. Plus, with this configuration, I think I'm able to push a bit further to the Grado flagship arena. Granted, not in the arena, but a bit closer. The GS-1000 that I had was just heavenly to listen to. A bit lighter on bass, but the jazz would sound like heaven.
