New Grado "S-Cush"/"Comfies" itchy and hard?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Maybe I got a fake pair but I ordered them through Amazon from a company ( 4ourEars) that states they are Grados.

 

I dont remember them ever being this hard and uncomfortable.

 

Are there any new options for my HF-1's? I love the sound from a quarter modded s-cush but I cant wear these for more than an hour...

order the yellow Senn HD414 pads.  They are nice and soft and basically identical to the grado comfies.

The yellow Senns are a thing if beauty. I couldn't stand the comfies, got these in and all irritation was gone.

Yes, the Senns are better.  I took my HF2 pads and soaked them in Woolite.  Made them softer and WAY less itchy.  But the Senns are still softer and more comfortable.

Thanks.

 

Have always gone with other options due to the yellow color.

Are they easy to dye?

 

Also, are they the same thickness as the comfies? Thats one of the nice things about the comfies; they provide a bit more depth which in turn allows for a tad more soundstage.

you can try, worst thing is that you get black ears biggrin.gif

 

but seriously, clothes dye may work.

Hope you got a real good deal since Grado is in Brooklyn and there are plenty of dealers in NYC to let you audition the pads before you buy.confused.gif

This should help with the dying questions:

As far as thickness, I believe the Senn pads are thinner, but mine are out on overnight loan, so can't compare to original comfies.

Om my g-d...I spent a whole ten dollars! 

Should I return them and hunt for a better deal?

 

Maybe they can be found somewhere for 9 dollars...or maybe even 8!
