  I think I just had them so far forward that the opening to my ear drum was almost covered by the L-cushion and breaking the 'seal'.

Try the ear-cups in different places up and down the legs. There should be a position where they are comfortable. 
 
In terms of forward or backward, I have the driver position straight over the ear canal.

  This was my first time listening to these beauties. Had to share this magical moment with you! 
 
 
Nice!  I’ve had my 125’s for a short time and I’m really liking them - BTW I was listening to the same thing when I first got mine... :)

After the vendor could not promise a delivery date on SR80e that I had ordered, I upgraded the order to SR125e, which is in stock.  I should be getting mine soon, and I am really looking forward to them.  I think that the SR125e, along with the RS2, is the unsung hero of the Grado line!

Enjoy the 125e’s - those along with RS2e’s are my goto cans!

I already have, and love, the SR125. It will be great to compare them to the SR125e..

I remember when the seller posted the RS3 about selling it on the thread…Grado wasn't thrilled!

  Thank you!
I did make the list for the current batch of BHSE's so thats a plus!
 
Thank you!
I am a "little ordinary person" and always will be, and will always LOVE Grado…listening to "The Doobie Brothers with the RS1i right now and loving it! 
Take some more meds and join me so we can compare what we hear from the Stax. 

 
If only it was that easy, I would love to join you, on this wonderful journey that you're about to go on, with the Stax.
 
You know that I'm a car guy, so I have a tendency to compare headphones to cars. I see the Stax 009 as a Bugatti Veyron, and my HP1000 as a Shelby Cobra. I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled across the HP1000. I said stumbled, because I wasn't looking for a pair, I was at my local audio store, shopping for a turntable cartridge, and they were just sitting there, among the new Grado headphones, and after a few minutes of listening to them, I was hooked.
 
The thing is that, I could never bring myself to part with my HP1000, my Bushmills, or my GH-1. Another thing that I couldn't part with, is my ultra rare Grado HPA-2. So few of them were maid, that I though I'd never be able to own one, but thanks to Parbaked, I'm now the proud owner of a mint HPA-2.  
 
You are one of the Troopers whose opinion I trust, and since you own the PS1k and the GH-1/G, I'm looking forward to reading your impressions on how those two compare to the 009.
