Decent but nothing spectacular. I haven't really spent much time on it but I'll say the SQ is roughly equal to Piano Forte II's level.

Sounds like a good buy to me, but is it real?

Anyway, K319 is a decent earbud, but it is warm, smooth and doesn't stand out on any particular area. If you already have any one of those earbuds I rated higher than K319, then you can skip it altogether,

it should be real, the store is listed at AKG site as a dealer.

 

but i can skip it (*still waiting for the M2c stock, sigh*)

K319 have been discontinued, so they might be clearing overstock.

How does the JVC HA-FX40 IEM compare with the Sony MDR-E484? The HA-FX40 IEM is only around $20. The HA-FX40 has so much detail. I just did a comparison of the HA-FX40 and the Sony E888. While both sound good, the HA-FX40 has much better bass and better detail overall. The E888 is a bit warmer sounding than the FX40, but not as warm as the Panasonic HJE-355.

 

The Sennheiser MX580 sounds almost as warm as the HJE355, however the HJE355 has better bass and better detail.

 

 

I guess this explains why I reach for an IEM or headphone when I have a choice, and usually only use traditional style earbuds when I must hear my surroundings.

 

The market has clearly moved away from traditional earbuds except perhaps at the lowest price points.

I think it's a good deal. I think that it's better than Yuin PK3 and almost on the same level as PK2. Blox M2C might be a bit better than both PK2 and K319, but at $25 you can't go wrong!

soooo. I ran into a bunch of people calling the PK3 "warm"


did I have a bad unit or something?

If you are asking me, then the answer is, I don't know since I have heard neither.

No, I won't call PK3 warm myself. It is on the lush side of sound but calling it warm is a bit over-the-top IMO.

Is it worth it to get the expensive pmx 980 (120 euros) , when all you want  is something as good or better than your k317 (broken) ?
I  know that k317 has same sound as k319, they just  don't have the volume control. Can't find a good replacement of k317 on the online store I use.
I  liked especially k317 treble & soundstage. I know that the pmx 980 are discontinued too, the only reason that they don't disappear fast, is their price. .

PMX980? DO you mean OMX980 instead? Unless you really want the ear clip, I really see no reason to get the OMX980 when MX980 is available.

Ooops I meant the MX980. I already have the PMX680 (treble is meh) , hence the confusion.

I hope you can also review the new earbuds of sunrise, the SWD2 and the AS Feeling2.
