, im interested in them, they will be at home in few days.
so Sunrise AS-Feeling = yuin pk3 in quality?
thanks again for replys
can a earbud sound as good as a IEM? I have always wondered this seeing how crappy-licious the stock apple earbuds, and the sansa fuze earbuds are
I have no problem with the SQ of pk3. Sure, it is not as clean as TF10, but it is great for casual/background listening. The sound is musical, comfortable.
Sometimes I prefer my earbuds over IEM because 1. it does offer me an opportunity to hear phone ring or co workers calling for me while still offer SQ in an overall quiet setting. One thing with IEM is that I feel that I constantly look over to my phone for visual glue on someone calling me... it gets quite annoying.
I also prefer earbuds because they are easy on and easy off... non of the readjustment needed as with IEM. The sound is relatively consistent and I don't have to worry about if I yawned, whether I loose the golden seal or not. I know that when I have my IEM, often time at the office when walking by co workers, I consciously try to not take them off if approached by any ppl... earbuds are just so convenient... (also, I wear glasses... so that having to readjust IEM with over the ear style often mean I have to take off my glasses too... so earbud is a big win here)
Anyway, I may do some critical listening and do a/b with earbud/iem. I just put my pk3 on right now listening to some songs, it sounds wonderful and I have no hesitation listening with it.
Just chiming in here with my 2 cents (first post! ), but I recently pulled the trigger on both the Yuin OK3 and Yuin OK2 so I feel I can offer at least a direct comparison.
I was looking to upgrade from stock ipod earbuds for work--having recently splurged on the Beyer DT880/600 in my plunge into the head-fi world.
I've noticed several mention budget constraints, so I'm not sure if the OK series is exactly what the OP is after, but I was very pleased with the OK3. I choose the OK series instead of the older PK series primarily due to cable concerns.
Both the OK2 and OK3 have a very manageable cord without much memory (i.e doesn't tangle that easily) and are surprisingly comfortable. As a word of warning, I found them to be larger than the stock ipod earbuds, but wearing them "nude" without the leather or foam covers seems to make the size much more appropriate for my ears.
Soundwise they are very impressive. Soundstage and detail are readily apparent and very enjoyable. I ended up upgrading from the OK3 to the OK2 because I was craving the detail of my dt880/600, but I would highly recommend both.
Head-direct has great customer service, like a previous poster mentioned, and is where I picked both of mine up. 30 day refund and 1 year replacement so If you can afford it, i'd definitely say try 'em out.
