Yuin PK3 Appreciation Thread - Page 51

post #751 of 756

Hey guys, I just ordered a PK3 and am slightly concerned about the durability issues. Is there anything that I can do to prevent this, such as putting some electric tape over certain parts of the cable, or should I just use them as-is and RMA them them they break.

 

Speaking of which, how difficult is it to get a replacement? Do I have to pay shipping? How long does it take? Thanks!

The cord quality on the yuin pk3 is known to suck badly. I'm not sure if you can repair yourself, but on ebay some sellers do "DIY" which is the same earbud but replaced with a durable better cord if I recall correctly

I also just picked up the PK3 DIY (eBay) and I am very happy with them.

- Overall sound is clear. More to the brighter side of neutral.
- Bass is really lacking, though I am not a basshead and this is not too much of a bother to me.
- Comfort is GREAT for me. They fit perfectly and I can wear them for hours with no issues.
- Build quality is very good from what I can tell. The DIY seems to be a durable design.

* Note for the DIY. I am not a fan of the bright red cable and find it funny that it is made of skullcandy parts.
Also comes in a Beats headphone pouch. It is a hodgepodge of parts, but it does work very well.


Now I am thinking of picking up the PK2 DIY, but having trouble to justify playing double the price for them.

I bought the PK2 DIY because it was the same price as the regular PK3. I'll let you know if I pick up the PK3 DIY in the future so that I can compare them.

Noo!! after owning this beautiful earbud for just slightly over 13 months, my left earbud has a little buzz noise :( It goes away when I try to rearrange it, but still.. TT

I've had mine for a long time and haven't had a problem... this week almost daily use. I did splice a iphone cord onto it to get the iphone control. I've had not problem with the cord either but I hate the iphone cord because it tangles easily. I love these buds. I am about to splice another pair of PK3s for a friend.
