Earbuds in MX580/Pk3 range, but w/ no volume control and a Y-cord?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a pair of earbuds (non-isolation) that are in the same range as the Senn MX580's or the Yuin Pk3's, but that don't have an in-line volume control nor a J-cord: just a basic, symmetrical Y-cord. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I'm pretty sure pk3 comes with Y-cord

The cord isn't mentioned on head-direct or amazon, but in a couple threads about them on here the posters mention the j-cord. So that is what i'm going off of

I picked up the PK3s a year ago and they had the Y-cord, I think they switched to the Y-chord a good while ago. They were really nice, warm sounding and detailed, good bass. However, the buds were too large for my ears, and got uncomfortable in extended listening sessions (might not be a problem for you). One side eventually stopped working, I can't remember why though. So I'm actually looking for the exact same type of earbud you are, just an alternative to the PK3 with no volume control.

If I remember correctly, the pre-production and maybe very first PK3 models had a J-cord, but it was quickly changed to Y cord. Great earbuds if you like strong mid-centered sound with good bass and surprisingly good details -- but to my ear, the highs are little subdued and rolled off.

That's good to know, thanks! I'll definitely keep those in mind, but I'll wait to hear about some other options to make a purchase. I'm no audiophile so I'm not jumping at spending $40 for earbuds that I won't use too often (I sound cheap, but still rolleyes.gif)
