Yuin PK3 Appreciation Thread

post #1 of 755
Thread Starter 
Wow...I know that there is already a thread on PK3's, but these are simply amazing. i never knew i could get this kind of detail and sound through earbuds. I haven't heard either PK1 or PK2, but from what I've heard, the PK3's have less clarity and more bass. This is simply everything I am looking for in a portable headphone. This might even beat out the KSC75's for me. The KSC75's have more bass, but are muddier than the PK3's. It's amazing. I went from my EP630's back and forth to the PK3's, and the PK3's offer so much more. I can hear so much more than when I did with the EP630's, meaning I can hear some notes I didn't hear with the EP630's. Even the packaging of the PK3's is amazing. Yuin is simply awesome. Now to try the KSC35's I just received.

Man, threads like these make me hate waiting. Head-Direct, would you care to move the second group buy ship date closer?

How do they compare to your MS-1s?

Well of course the MS-1's sound much better. It's hard to compare apples to oranges . The pk3's are warmer sounding to me than the MS-1's and has less bass. That's all I can really compare.

I had a feeling that would be the answer.
Now just the wait until May 11th... Are these good enough to help keep my spirits up through the AP US History test (same day my order ships )?

yea these are great phones. I use them much more then my ksc75s, just because the PK-3 is so much smaller

It sounds like the PK3s might be "comparable" to the KSC75s. Anyone have any experience between the 2's and 3's? I was about to plunk down some change on the PK2s, but am now wondering if I should just save some money and go with the PK3s?

(I recently joined the KSC75 club and really enjoy them, but they don't work well for commuting. Sooo, I got a pair of JBL 220s off eBay, but I'm not sure the canalphone is my thing. The Yuins have been looking like they might be the perfect fit!)

The little pad that come with the PK3 is the biggest bast booster i ever tried!
At first i was wondering why people were telling that the PK3 was so warm and rich in bass and i undestood when i put the pad on

I pretty much love them, i was expecting a little more because of all the hype to be honest, but they deliver the good for 30U$ (Canada's GB price). Now my main problem is the lenght of the cord, this thing is shoooooort!

...

Damn deep pocket!

Anyway peps for 25$ they are still the best earphones out here i'm plenty sure.

well...i wouldn't say best because i think the ksc75's beat these out in terms of SQ IMO, but their size is even better than the ksc75's.
