is not including flat pads with every headphone.
I can't even imagine how much more they would sell, especially to the younger generation if they did this. Most people who own grados don't even bother to try out flats because they cost $35. Just a piece of foam but the switch to flats made more of a difference than any dac, amp, cable, or source change. bass hits hard and everything sounds more full. most things that people complain about regarding grados are solved by flat pads (other than soundstage).
This is just my opinion obviously. Grado headphones i've owned- sr60, black sr325, rs1i. i've tried bowls, comfies, 414s with all my grados. thought it'd be nice to spark a pad discussion as i think flats are very overlooked, especially with the low models such as the sr60.
grado is my favorite sound, other good headphones i've owned: senn hd600, hd650, senn ie8, darth beyers, stax srs005
