Did you only pay $1.35 for the TTVJ flats? Might have missed a digit.
But, you are correct. It can be either a love or hate relationship with the pads. As a lesser cost alternative option to try, consider the Sennheiser HD-414 pads and perform the reverse-quarter mod. They are a softer pad, and could potentially have somewhat of an effect on the frequency (good or bad) depending on how you perceive it. But at less than $5.00 a pair at B&H, it's a pretty good price ... even if you don't like them, or the funky yellow color.
No I paid $1.35 for the shipping and $35.00 for the pads.
I've also tried the reverse quarter mod and the (G) cushions, but I prefer the (L) cushions for the Grado models that I have. It is not a sound or comfort issue for me at all, I was just exploring.

Hahaha, i wouldn't say that you are.
Maybe you can switch on a weekly basis? ;P
the GR10's are amazing, i can understand your decision
$35 for the pads? That's quite a lot.
Considering there's just one vendor that you can get them from, it's just a not having competition. But, it's also hard to tell how much TTVJ actually has to pay to get them into their inventory. Since they are a bit more of a specialized pad, they might have to pay a bit more, too.
As I've said before, Grado pads are cheap compared to the velour ear pads on the Sennheiser HD-580/600/650 as they run about $58.00 a pair.
Yeah its a lot, but what could I do, I wanted to try them, so know I know their not for me.
After all this isn't lets make a deal, you have to pay if you want something.
The thing is that the Jaben reseller here sells their S-cush and L-cush at around $17 post conversion.
(though the G-cush is much closer to $35)
The Grado (G) cushions are $45.00, I once tried them also but they weren't for me either.
