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.

I also agree about using the g cush with the ps500.

Ditto!

AND when the g cush breaks in and gets kinda flat, it sounds a little less distant. You can speed up the process with heat and pressure if you want.

What does the G cush do to the treble? Is the signature a little less bottom heavy and balanced with them?

post #9546 of 24418
Yes more balanced, the bass is less in ur face, the mids and treble are more forward, but not harsh. Flatter, but not neutral. Definitely more grado sounding then stock.

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.

$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.

You're at the right place.

 

And I am very sorry for your wallet!

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)
