Nothing new to add other than more Yuin cable problems. I have 3 pairs of pk3's, they kept breaking in the exact same place, right near the plug. The first time was my fault, I did not have a case for my D2, and used the headphone cable to pull the D2 out of my pocket to pause/change songs (I know I know, I was young and stupid).
The other pair of Pk3's broke after about a year of careful use (got a case with belt clip)... in the same place. I have a current pair that seem to be working well (knock on wood), and I treat them with kid gloves. Yes I like the sound so much that I bought a new pair each time they broke.
I also have the Pk2's, which have the same problem. They broke at the stereo plug end about 6 months after purchasing them, with sound only coming out the left speaker. They sat in a box until I learned about re terminating. I have no solder tools, but I was able to cut the Pk2 wires, and splice them into a radio shack gold stereo plug. Then I filled the space with glue and sealed the whole thing up. Works like a charm, cost less than 3 dollars, and took about 45 min to fix.
Almost forgot, my Ok3's also broke, the right driver blew out on me about 2 months after I got them. I was able to return them and get a new/refurbished pair which have worked fine so far.
I agree that these earbuds sound great, however the build quality is sub-par. If you take very good care of them, they are a great sonic investment.
