I dont have offical G-Cush pads, but the Ear Zonk from Amazon. I am guessing these are unofficial "seconds". But I am curious if there is any sonic differences. My next step will be to test with Senn. HD414 pads and quarter mods. Additionally, I have a super "secret" dual-quarter mod pad-stack that I am curious about. Time to start digging out my old pads. biggrin.gif

The comfies have a nice warmth to them, so with any luck the quarter mod with clear up bass without killing the sound. (BTW, I think the L-Cush has the best soundstage and tightest bass of what I've tried)

I also like the (L's) the best on my 80i/325is/RS1i/BMX.

I brought Wyd4's bushmills, very very pleased with the sound.

 

Been enjoying Neurosis, Lord Mantis, Anciients, Deftones, Cult of Luna among other assorted tracks so far on em. Holy smokes they sound good with my heavy metal albums along with my blues, rock stuff. Not the worst listen for some Neelix either. Listening to Accept right now.

 

Need to get some G Cush pads from A2A

 

I've recommended Wyd4 to check out the Fischer Audio FA-011 Limited edition for something with very Grado kind of sound. The bass on that headphone needs to be heard to be believed. The FA-011 has similarities to the PS1000, the regular model has a similar sound sig and is almost the baby PS1000 just with a smaller sound stage. LE is very good improvement over non LE model. Grado fans should check out the FA011 either model.

I am glad you are enjoying them man. They surprised me with pendulum too.
But if you want a real treat check out on tha sofa YouTube channel.
Also Alice in chains MTV unplugged.
I just picked up some Alessandro ms pro's which I should have next week. They say they are like rs1s with no teeth lol. Hopefully there are still since in there.
Will see how they go.

Anyway enjoy them man, they weren't easy to let go lol

Can anyone comment on how the sound-leakage is on these? I was thinking about getting some to wear at the office, but wasn't sure how disturbing it would be.

I believe the consensus is they leak about 98% as much as other Grado models like the SR225i, etc.

I was using these in my office environment and I didnt have too many issues at a modest listening level.

I would say about 95% - 98% of the leakage of a regular pair of Grado's as stated above.

The wood on the back of the cup is very thin and air vents take up about 75% of the radius of the cup's edge, so these do not isolate well at all.

 

The above being said, the person who sits next to me has similar music tastes and in a lot of cases has their own headphones on, so this negates much of the issue for me.

If you sit near/next to a cranky person who hates your music, you might be in trouble.

Thanks guys! I was hoping that the semi-closed back would be good enough, but looks like it might not be.

Hey mate,

 

I was just listening to me MS-Pro's at work, I would actually say that the Bushmills probably leak about 80% of these.

Or maybe I was listening louder? haha.  Nah in seriousness, the volume of the leakage overall is probably about 95%, but it is muffled and not as clear.
 

I just walked about 10 meters from my desk and I could sing along to the words if I wanted to.

 

I dunno, depending where you work it might be worth buying them to try if you can find some.

That is of course if you have the money to waste on a "test".  In saying that, they shouldnt depreciate.


Best of luck with your decision.

Just wondering if anyone has any updated opinions or thoughts on the Bushmills now that they've had some time with them?

It doesn't seem that Turntable Labs have any more stock yet... Does anyone know if more are planned?

I contacted both Turntable Labs and Grado and they have said no more will be produced. I also asked for total units, the only answer I got was "a Limited Number".
