Most Comfortable Pads for RS1i?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I wear glasses and I need something extra comfortable. Pointing me to a good place to shop for pads would be appreciated too, in addition to names of pad models.

Of the three pads that Grado makes, G-cushions are most comfortable. Note that they affect the sound (as will all the others).

I'm currently using yellow Sennheiser "comfy" pads. They're on ear, but it doesn't really bother me. Much better from the stock pads. If you want more of an around the ear pad, the G-cush pads are the way to go. Bear in mind that they still touch your ears.

 

Senn pads: http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Cushions-Sennheiser-SRI-Series-headphones/dp/B002B4OEZ0

 

Off brand G-cush: http://www.amazon.com/Ear-Zonk-Replacement-Headphone-Cushion/dp/B00BW4RWH2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1393092035&sr=1-2&keywords=g-cush

 

The reason I'm recommending the off brand G-cush pads is that some people say they're softer than the ones from Grado, and they'll save you $30.

Heard that too about sound. Thinking I'll buy a couple and see what I think.

I have the Sennheiser yellow pads. A little nicer but still hurts the ears. I want to try the around-ear kind. Looking at here to buy: http://www.ttvjaudio.com/TTVJ_Flat_Pads_p/aat0000100.htm

If it is comfort that you want...then yeah, get the G's.
