I don't think replacement grips will reduce racquet vibration. The only thing that will reduce vibration would be your vibration dampener on the strings.

Put some lead at 3/9 before you start changing gips. Im pretty sure they will all have the same amount of vibrations tho.
Leather grips have more vibration than sythetic ones , thats why they have more feel!
Thanks for correcting me, I remembered the effect of a leather grip the other way. My mistake for speed-reading.
Actually grips can make a difference. I put a Wilson Dry-Comfort on my wife's KZen Team and it is noticeably more comfortable than the OEM Wilson grip. Grips will not tame a really harsh feeling racquet on their own, though.
I would imagine any grip that's relatively thick would cushion the vibrations. What you can do is apply 2 or 3 overgrips if you really want to test that out.
I would recommend the Head Hydrosorb for max cushion.
