Better than the originals, better than the closed-center replacements. WONDERFUL cushions, and highly recommended.
These halfway solved the problem for me. I think they assume larger ears than mine (perhaps this is why they are "L-CUSH" when the others I see here that look like the stock are called "S-CUSH.") When I put them on, they helped a lot, but then the tips of my ears were pressing right against the hard part of the headphones as they didn't quite reach the cushioning on the inside. I solved this problem by taking the thinner padding from a more modern headphone set I haven't used in a long time and trimming it to fit, then squeezing it inside between the L-CUSH and the headphones themselves. Also, I cut a small hole about the size of a quarter in the center to let the sound through more easily since I did like the open aspect of the L-CUSH. This way my ears get padding, but the sound still comes through clearer. I think this handily solves that problem so would recommend it to those who find these to still be a bit uncomfortable (and it shouldn't be hard to find headphones to steal the inner padding from -- you can aquire this sort in many stores for quite cheap really and, in fact, there's no reason a used pair won't work just fine.)
I am a little concerned about the durability aspect. However, there aren't a lot of options out there for the Grados that I could see. I'm guessing not many companies think to sell third party headphone cushions really. Right now I'm enjoying how well they work so much that I think I can get along with just washing and shampooing them from time to time as others have suggested to keep them from drying out.
I rated 3/5 stars because they are good, but need a bit of work to be as good as they should have been. I'm betting this won't be a problem for everyone, but they could have solved it simply by having the inner foam part that angles inward go a bit further to accomodate more ear sizes, so I think it's a bit of carelessness in the design. Also, another minus one for the durability issue. It shouldn't be that hard to pick a better foam I think, or even design something more modern.
