I was introduced to Grado Mods about two months ago.I was stunned by the quality of the sound that the Grado platform produced. I was also very impressed by the light weight of these headphones after being into heavy and cumbersome planar headphones prior to my Grado mod audition. What I wasn't impressed by was the on ear position of the ear cups. I tried L cush and G cush Grado cushions and I found it difficult to adapt to them. While web surfing, I found a site at Beautifulaudio.biz that listed some very unique and to me appealing cushions. They seemed a little pricey at $115 a pair, but they offered a free return within 30 days if you didn't like them. I contacted them in New Zealand and within a week I received a pair of the Meriono wool Beautiful Audio cushions. They came with two sets of foam inserts so you can "tune" the cushions to your desired sound signature. Two things impressed me immediately. First, they were extremely comfortable! They fit nicely over my ears and attached to a pair of modded Grados, it felt very light. Like I can wear these all day light. Second, the design of the foam inserts in the cups created a wonderful enhancement to the sound. The bass sounded deep and life like and they seemed to focus the sound to really make an enjoyable listen, without removing any of the Grado sound magic. I was so impressed that I contacted the owner of Beautiful Audio and ordered two more sets for builds that I had in progress. He was also gracious enough to provide me a set of cushions and the head band pads that he make so that I could set up a " Check Out These Beautiful Audio Cushions" tour, so others could experience them and share their impressions. Tour impressions will be included in this thread. Attached is a picture of a Wabi Sabi Headphone build and a set of Beautiful Audio Merino cushions. IMO They rock!
