I wonder where that image is. I've seen it somewhere else, but a couple months ago I tried to find it, and I couldn't. I think it was probably in another forum, reddit, or somewhere. I also tried finding it in archive.org, but came up empty.
The image doesnt show for me. what does it show? Its the positioning for the grado earpads and how to put the grados correctly on your ears.

How do you like it so far?Fed X should be delivering mine tomorrow. Judging by the good reviews I've read it's a big improvement over previous models.

Love the sound. It's definitely warmer than my IS series. But I hate the cable haha.

Doesn't show for me either. From what I remember, it showed a side profile of a head and the various placements of the headphones. For Grado L pads, they showed the forward location being best, and I can attest to that. Putting L pads on your ears like you would any other on ear will be uncomfortable to painful. So sliding forward a bit so the pad rests on your cheekbone/temple, top of ear, and back of ear, means the driver shouldn't touch your ear, and it should be quite comfortable.

I just received the 325x and so far I'm pretty impressed. A much smoother and fuller sound than the 325 that I owned years ago. They seem to be better built and more solid overall. The chords kind of thick, but I can live with it.

I have to agree, they sounded much more fuller than my 325is, I am really enjoying it. I don't really have anything to say about the build quality, it's Grado haha, it's a love it or hate it type deal. The wire is unforgivable, and I'm getting rid of it soon.

Tried the S Cushion pads for the past week, while I think they're better than the stock pads it still unbearable after 30mins or so. It might have something to do with my head and glasses. The G Pad on the other hand felt much better, I can wear them for 8+ Hours. I might have to buy another pair for backup.

Anyone know the difference if any between the Senn Hd 414 yellow cushions , compared to the coloured Yaxi ones which are more expensive. Thanks.
The cellulose structure of the Senn foam is a little more open and because they need to be stretched a little to fit on the cups they are effectively a little more shear in their coverage of the driver. The Yaxi is more like a stiffer S cush, but still soft to the skin. They have similar but subtly different sound signatures so I think it mostly comes down to personal comfort. I prefer the Senn with center holes cut out but have not been motivated to cut my Yaxi's. And of course the Yaxi come in PURPLE!

As @sjbrook mentioned, the Yaxi's are a little firmer and I much prefer their "sound signature" (on SR60e) to that of the stock Grado S-Cush pads, however the first couple of days they certainly did not feel soft to the ear. I can't do a direct comparison between the Yaxi and HD414 pads as I have quarter modded HD414's, but there is a difference in foam\density. I prefer the quarter modded HD414's on my SR325i.
