Grado Bushmills X - Grado's first closed-back headphone? - Page 25

post #361 of 745

My only complaint..I noticed it last night.

 

The cable and the hole the cable comes out of not even close to the same size.  So I noticed that if i moved my head left or right i could hear the cable knock against the wood cup. I plan on fixing this when i balance the headphone with some rubber gourmets or rubber glue to hold the cable in place so its not knocking around other then that comfies are fine but i still want to try the L's and G's

I too would have like the Bushmills to come with L-cush, instead of comfies, metal gimbals, an extra coat of varnish on the cups, and yes, they should have made the hole in the cup a little smaller to better fit the wire, or at least used some rubber ''gourmets'', yes, I'm with lord_tris on this one, gourmets is a distinguished French word associated with fine cuisine, so from now on, I vote that we use ''gourmets'' instead of grommets. :p

 

Seriously though, I know very little about what it takes to run a successful buisness, so I can't say if all of the above would've had a significant impact on the Bushmills selling price, and Grado's profit margin.

 

In the end, they'll never be able to please everybody, but one thing's for sure, they did manage to please me, A LOT.

They do but unless they release another batch doubt you will get them from them. Might watch the forsale thread here or ebay for scalpers.

Yes, not cheap but you won't find them anywhere else...actually TTL is sold out so you can't even get them there anymore. Not sure if grado will be making anymore.

Thnks for the link. One other question, I was reading Turntablelabs.com Internaltional FAQ and seems like they only ship Grado headphones inside USA. I was planning to get some RS1i's from a Amazon partner settled in Japan, but they are charging 870 dollars. Can I get them from Turntablelabs.com?

Does anyone know how the iem range of grados compare sonically to these?
I need a pair of on the go phones and my amperiors are killing my ears with my new glasses.

Yes grado dealers can only ship to their specified country.
However the bushmills were an exclusive to TTL so I am guessing this is why they could send them internationally. In my case to Australia

The Bushmills were an exception. They won't ship the RS1 to you.

I wholeheartedly agree. first the "clamps" should need a "downgrade" to those as used on the HP-1000. My RS-2 and PS-1000 would appreciate it.

I have to slightly retract my earlier statement. There is more of a difference between the Bushmills and RS1 than i initially thought. The RS1 is so much more 3 dimensional and instrument separation is a lot better. Makes me crave a vented version of the RS1 even more. The one thing I really notice going back and forth is the sub bass on the Bushmills is really great and that's the only thing the RS1 is lacking.
