you can get them from head-direct.com or ttvj.com for $70 and should be at your door before you leave for hong kong.

I have just bought the 'Audio Technica ATH-CK7' phones only to be gravely disappointed by the sound. Even after the initial burn-in period they sound anemic to me. Can someone with experience with this phone describe the difference between it and the PK2. As I am not happy at all with the 'CK7's.

They look EXACTLY like any other generic earbud out there, so how is the fit really any different?

They're not. The diameter of the buds is a bit wider and they are a bit slimmer than most other buds. There is also a curvature to the stalk that lets it rest comfortably in the little notch in your ear right above the ear lobe.

Try searching. There's plenty of information corroborating this fact.

Ok thanks. Do the PK3, PK2 and PK1 all have exactly the same shape? Considering getting a pair of PK3 to try the fit.

I've used all three. There are no differences in shape from what I can tell.

Got the PK1 recently after impressions in this thread.

I never liked IEM's as they are too intrusive, these are it for me. They sound great, detailed with an airy soundstage. The bass is decent too.

These coupled with an Imod+amp probably make a great stealth-fi purchase

And I bought a PK2 after reading this thread, hooray!

Where can the PK1's/2's be purchased?
post #85 of 1003
Head-direct.com and headphone.com (headroom corp) just got these.

If you purchase from Head-direct, they can offer free shipping to US/Canada using priority USPS.

Look to the right at the Sponsors module.

I'm listening to my Pk1's right now and it's quite enjoyable straight out of my DAP.

I received a pair of PK2s today in the mail as a trade item. 1 minute later after plugging them into my Nano, I was doing the thing. I've been outta the headphone loop for a while now but if this is the state of the art for earbuds, then I'm pretty blown away as these things sound practically like full sized headphones!!!

Good to hear as I have some on the way

Got the PK-2s and definately like the sound...

The PK-1 may be tempting in this thread, but the whole purpose of getting these is to have a "normal" travel rig. Something I can take around like and have plugged right into the ipod no amp, etc. and still get audiophile SQ.

I still use and like the Ety ER4s for isolation.

Time to update my signature. These will be staying
