Let us know what you think about the (G) cushions with the RS's.

Maybe I'll tape my (L) cushions and listen how they sound.

I use the G cushion every once in awhile with my RS1i....just as a little change of pace.

 

I have not tried it yet with my MAD EAR.

When I get back later i'm going to tape the (L) cushions and hear how they sound. Although I'm not a bass head at all and I think the RS's have a very nice natural bass. From my experimentig I most probably won't like them taped, I am a big fan of the (L) cushion (stock), but I will try it. And for that matter I also enjoy the (S) cushions reverse quarter modded, but not as much as the (L).

 

I'd like to hear some impressions with the (G) cushion taped on the RS1's though!

If I like some of the impressions, maybe I'll pick up another pair and try them taped on the RS's.

I could never get on with the reversed quarter modded comfies, but maybe that was because I cut more than a quarter sized hole out... Very uncomfortable.
Comfies in general I don't think I like comfort wise, but you are positioned close enough for some nice bass.
The L Cush I wasn't sure about as I only tried some quickly, but they really didn't suit my ears. Are they on-ear or over-ear? Very awkward for me. The lower end in general seemed *****, but most likely because of the poor fit on me.
Just waiting for my G cush to arrive now biggrin.gif
Will most definitely have to try the tape in them! smily_headphones1.gif

Taping Gs made no difference at all.

I'm going to guess that I'll like the taped L better than a taped G

Which version ? I remember loving the Judas Priest version and then realizing it was a Joan Baez song!

 

I'm rocking Quadrophenia which I just picked up. I don't think I've heard Q in about 25 years. Sound terrific on my 225 through my main system.

That's "Diamonds and Rust" you're thinking about...

+1.  That album is perfect for the 225.  My all-time favorite Who album, and way up in my must-have recordings

Jay said he was listening to Peter Green....which made me think of Green Manilishi

 

You are also correct that Judas Priest also did a version of this, I believe on the Unleashed In The East album....I also like Judas Priest version as well.

I heard (and loved) the Judas Priest version first on the live album you mention (which also has "Diamonds and Rust" which is a Joan Baez song)... only later to discover the original, which was absolutely stunning.  The version on the first volume of FMac's Live in Boston album is incredible.

And while listening to Peter Green, I did indeed listen to Green Manilish
