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!


Do the Yaxis come in any other color than Purple for the Grados? I think I've only seen purple pads from Yaxi, nothing against purple lol.

Yes, they also come in black:

Have anyone tried the S Cushion YAXI PAD on their 325? The pads says it supports SR60e, 80e, 125e. Do they use the same cup size?

Yes, they fit just fine. Not snug, but also not to the point that I'd be concerned about 'em falling off. The outer diameter of the ring over which the foams\pads fit on my SR60e, SR80i and SR325i are 54mm. Not sure if there's a difference on older pre-i series or the new x series. Perhaps someone else can confirm, but in that link the reviewer seem to use an older SR60 model.

The X's are the same 👍

I noticed those Yaxi Pads they said for the SR (Presitge) series and GW100. I gotta mention to people seeing that packaging, the normal S-Pad is smaller in diameter than the "S" pad on the GW100. I was going to try the L-Pad from my GH2 on the GW100 and I quit when I realized it would completely stretch-out or destroy the L-pad because the diameter difference is significant enough.

Got some interesting pictures comparing the X series and IS SR325s. Seems like the 325x has less components inside vs the IS(notice the plastic ring of the IS). From the top is SR80x, SR325x, SR325IS.

Had chance to try almost all of X line up (the only exception is SR225X).

Dare I say, these improvements did surprised in good way!

SR60X and SR325X easily become my favourite.

SR60X produce wider soundstage, combine with smoother treble, and more natural midrange, with punchier bass compare to SR60e. At this price point it's a steal!

SR325X with flat pad, produce forward, energetic, and dense full body sound with plenty of punchy character. Bass drum is so fun here, combine with forward vocal and electric guitar with satisfying bite! I never liked the 325 line up (from non-i, i, and e), but 325X could be the sweetest spot of Grado line up right now.

What does the sr60x do that you like over the 125x for example since you did mention liking the 60x and 325x best?

I'm in the U.K buddy . but it took about 10 days for my B.A pads to arrive . I'm actually expecting another pair to arrive in the next few days , I've ordered some Merino wool pads for my RS2e .

Roger that. I always wanted a pair but was always a little unsure about the lead times/shipping times(I'm an impatient fool). But looking at your pictures/review of the pads, they look like they are well worth it. 👍

Obviously look around for other reviews on the pads before you commit , but in my opinion they are worth the wait & every ££$$ from your wallet.
