Funny how everyone experiences things differntely--I think the flat pads are the best for comfort but the absolute worst for sound. I hate what they do to the bass, the highs, the tonal character of the midrange and the transparency but I think they are comfortable as all heck compared to the modded senns or reversed/regular bowls.

Anyway most people love the sound of the flat pads so make sure to try them--along with all of the other pad combinations--no matter which Grados you own.

Hey Todd,
How much would shipping be to Denmark? $10 as well? Do you also have the hd414 unmoded pads?
Cheers,
Rasmus

I like the Flat pads for the bass energy they allow the grados to generate. Good for certain kinds of music.

I like the vwap pads for anything that is not pop/hip-hop/rap and bass heavy music...

I have all possible pads...bowls, grado flats, vwap flats, sennheiser pads, comfies...

Everything finds a use in my setup. Each has its plus and minus...

Recieved my flats this morning from Todd all the way across the atlantic and Wow! These really are one of the best £18 ($30) i've ever spent! The difference in sound is unbelieveable, it really does sound like a different pair of headphones and the bass ... Oooff very nice

Mpemba Effect,

Glad you like your Flats from Todd, I also bought 2 pairs from Todd for my RS-1's and 225's, they do make a big improvement, and are worth their price for the sound improvements.

Best wishes,

Paul

Thanks Paul, I'm currently rediscovering my music collection. I'm definately going to have to pickup a few more pairs of these for the years to come just in case grado discontinues them for good

The Exchange Rates are very good at this moment in time, now is definately the best time to buy.

Best wishes,

Paul.

I don't think vwap makes the modified Senn pads anymore, but they pop-up on the "For Sale/Trade" forum occasionally. All you have to do is buy the Senn pads and cut a hole in them, you can dye them black if you want to be color coordinated.

I got my flats today, and my are they wonderful.

So much bass, it's incredible. I had no idea that a different earpad could change the sound so much.


And the pads got here very, very fast. Thanks Todd!

Can anyone provide some information on how to make the vwap pads (and where to buy the senn pads)? I.e. size of hole to cut, dyeing instructions...
