    I think the sound quality is also improved.
    Andrew Pastuszak
    For me they fit great, even better than the originals, the cushions feel like they balance the pressure a bit more.

    Sad but true that the great sounding Grado headphones do have crumbly ear cushions.

    The pads that come on the SR-60s are terrible, just awful. They hurt my ears after not too long. I replaced them with a set of these and, wow, they really helped out in more ways than I had anticipated. They get the driver closer to your ear so it really feels like the headphones are on your ear instead of just near it. They also seem to help the bass response a little bit-- I can't prove this empirically, but I think that they help to focus the sound a little better than the foam covers that the SR-60s come with. Also, there is nothing between your ear and the driver, so no layer of foam to affect sound in any way. If you bought the 60s and are thinking of getting something like the 80s or 125s, try this as a $15 upgrade first. Yeah, I might still get the 125s or 225s later, but swapping the pads is a great help, too!

    I've owned six pairs of Grados, from the budget-priced iGrados to the $1,000 GS-1000. The iGrados and SR-60s use a smaller pad. The GS-1000s use an around-the-ear "salad bowl." The remaining six models use these L-Cush pads. In my opinion, which is based on direct comparison, these L-Cush pads are the best.

    Unlike the smaller pads, used on the iGrado and SR-60, the L-Cush pads don't jam the ear up against the driver. And because the cushion leaves a doughnut hole, there's no physical barrier ear and driver. The result is greater clarity. Compared to my iGrados and my SR-60s, my SR-80s, SR-325is and RS-1's sound clearer and fuller, partly because the L-Cush pads provide a better soundstage.

    But I also use these pads on my GS-1000s, despite the obvious advantages of the GS-1000's larger "salad bowls." That's because these doughnuts position the ear CLOSER to the driver than the salad bowls. This avoids issues of sibilance, which can come up when there's too much high frequency. I also like the bass better. That's because direct contact between the ear and the cushions produces better bass extension. To be sure, there are trade-offs between soundstage and presence, just as there are tradeoffs between bass extension and high-frequency extension. But for my money (These cost a third of what the salad bowls cost), the L-Cush pads provide a better balance.

    These are easy to use and fit very well when placed. I do wish it was easier to find a replacement for the pads of my old Grado HP-2's, but these work great for the SR-80. I bought them just to use when the ones that came with them wore out. I put them on to see how easy it was to replace them, and I had no problems.

    One of the subtle differences between the SR80 and 60 is this pad. Now, it doesn't make sense to buy this with your SR60, as the total cost would end up the same as the 80. But if you have a 60 lying around that needs new pads, I'd run with these.
    They tighten what bass you already have with the 'comfies' that come with the SR60. In fact, if you don't know much about audio you might even say it has a tad less *quantity* of bass with these cups. The fact is that the SR60's "comfies" pads provide less detailed bass, as in it can sound a bit smeared (though still good). These tighten that up immediately, and is among the reasons that everyone says that the SR80 offers better bass performance than the 60, with all else being equal. This, combined with the extra distance provided by the material of the cups, provides a wider stage and an overall more pleasant listening experience, in my opinion. Though all Grados already provide an 'out of head' listening experience, these will provide even more of that effect to the SR60. They also look fantastic when applied.

    Tip - try rolling a single layer of black electrical tape around the outer edge of this pad. Just Google it to see what I am talking about. It sounds silly, but it does add a subtle punch to the low end if that's what you're after! If you do it carefully, it looks professional. While you're looking around, take a look at all of other insane ways to modify your Grado cans.

    Anyone complaining about paying $20 for a replacement piece of foam is obviously unfamiliar with how the pricing of proprietary products works (I'm talking to you, dude who rated these poorly because he doesn't like the price). Yes, it's a rip-off, but man, these are your Grados we are talking about here. Oh, and though this is subjective, I have no issues with comfort, despite the driver being bare as compared to the stock 60 pad.

    Grado has a world wide reputation for the best sound reproduction in their cans (audiophile speak for headphones) and they have the awards to back them up! Too often though, I've read reviews where comfort is criticized and that these ear cushions are allegedly to blame. Nonsense!

    It is true that Grado cans are supraural (on the ear) as opposed to circumaural (around the ear) so you will feel the unit against your ears. These cushions were redesigned back in 1998, offering greater thickness and distance from the transducer so that you feel more comfortable while listening through your cans AND the design allows for a greater soundstage for the magnificent Grado cans to impress you with. These cushions, called "L-Cush" here, can be used on every single pair of current Grado cans except perhaps the $1000 set. I use them on my SR60's, which come with a standard foam cushion that covers the whole transducer and it made them sound quite nearly as good as the SR80's! I recommend them to you wholeheartedly! If you google "The Listening Station," that is the place to purchase any Grado product from!
