I have both and I don't think the g-cush hurt the Bushmills one bit.

For those who have owned/heard the Alessandro MS2i's, do the Bushmills have a similar sound signature? From the posts I've been reading about the Bushmills it sure sound like it.

Also for those who own the Bushmills, I'm glad to hear that everyone is enjoying them!

Back on topic, I'm curious to know exactly how long it took for the Bushmills to get sold out. For obvious reasons, part of me wishes that Grado doesn't make more of them, but they're is another part of me that would like for everybody that want to hear how nice they sound, gets the chance to.

Tonight, I'll let the G-cush have a shot at the Bushmills,

From what I could tell they sold out in less than 24 hours...but apparently there is another batch coming...

I've had about 10 hours of listening with the Bushmills and I really like them. Having said that a closed/vented version of the RS1 would probably be my ideal headphone.

I am loving these with the comfies to be honest.

Mainly because... they are comfy haha.

 

To quarter mod or not to quarter mod.
Personally I think these could benefit from it as these are far from hot/harsh with a warmer tone.

 

Thoughts?

ME TOO!!

 

I still rock my 225i's, and even my 125i's sometimes - especially when a friend asks for an alternative to the commercial stuff

they've heard - and they want something that breaths, and can be driven by their iPhones or Androids!!

 

 

I'm getting a pair of 325i's - as I've heard a bunch of people here say that's the real sweet spot.

And I've been rockin Grados since I lived in Brooklyn YRS ago!! I even mixed one of my first tech house

records on my original SR80's...

 

I s/w Jonathan Grado about these - and I'm hoping to get a pair IF they do another run, which apparently they MAY do - 

but Jon didn't tell me that (somebody who must remain unnamed did - but I trust him.

They sound great. They are a warmer sound with good bass not typical of Grado but yet they still have the Grado sound. Kinda awesome they were able to make a headphone that is not like a Grado but still like a Grado. If you ask me, magic elves had something to do with it. I think Grado failed to tell us it was a Grado, Bushmills, and Keebler collaboration.

Hobbits had something to do with it too!

I raise my glass to you guys, the real team players :beerchug:

 

Alright, yesterday I compared the stock comfies, the TTVJ Flats, and the L-cush, wich I ended up preferring. Tonight, I tryed the G-cush, and found that the Bushmills had a little less bass presence, and a slightly hotter treble, I also found the voices a little more recessed. Keep in mind though that these differences were very small, wich makes it easy for me to understand why some people prefer the G over the L-cush. I personally will stick with the L-cush.

 

The Bushmills have exeeded my expectations by a VERY long shot, now, I just have to figure out ''how'' I'm going to use them, I realise that it's a beautiful problem to have, but it's still a problem ;)
