Grado Bushmills X - Grado's first closed-back headphone? - Page 17

post #241 of 744

Agreed 100% on the L-Cush pads, much better sound. I tried the Bushmill stock pads on my other high end Grado's and had the same effect, didn't care much for them. Could be me but great separation and soundstage, and a very welcome bass bump. I actually prefer these much more than my PS500s.

Sold out within a day.  Not sure how I feel about this Grado.

It's a much more interesting project than the D&G Grados!

I hope they use the experience to make a vented can.

Grados should be a good choice for 3D printing of cups....

Yeah. These are PS500s for the true grado fan. The PS500 was more for those that aren't fans of the grado sound.

It wouldn't be all bad if Grado had more variety in their models.

They do have a lot of models that sound similar albeit all good to me...

And that guy he spent the $750 on these should have made a bid first, no way these would have sold for the full price.

HE HAD TO BUY THEM RIGHT DAMN NOW.

How well do these scale up with gear for those of you who have had a play with them?

I am looking at just getting a portable amp for work that I can tuck into my laptop bag.

Also those of you who are grado fanatics, what sort of gear should I be looking for to compliment them.

Honestly the Fiio amps and DACs sound great with Grados. Perfect for little portable amps.

Almost any portable amp will drive your Grados well, so the "best" choice depends on what features (especially source) you require and your budget. 

The best way to get advise is to let us know which Grados you have and what your source is before anyone can help you pick an amp...

You were correct.

Need to get my some of these G-Cush.

I wanted to hear the headphones before I spent more money on them.


I really like them so far.

Well, I recieved my Bushmills today, I have to say, we often fault Grado for their pizza boxes, but they did make an effort with these, even if the box is a little rough around the edges, literally. But considering the asking price, I think it's ok. I don't know if it's just me, but the carrying bag is a bit on the stiff side, probably nothing a soak in warm water with a little fabric softener can't fix though.

 

I plan on giving the comfies a try, then the L-cush, then the flats, and the G-cush last. I have high hopes that they'll match well with the LD1+, even if I still have the stock tubes, I'm curious to find out how they'll sound with the HPA-2.

 

Oh!, and i just cheked my headband, and it looks ok, not perfect, but ok, these are sitll Grados, after all.

S45 is still shopping! :eek:

Never thought I would enjoy electronic on Grado's but 

 

Lindsay Stirling - Elements isnt too bad.

There is enough bass in these cans to be a much better alrounder than some other models.
