I am new to this forum. This is my first started thread. I have just acquired a Yuin Pk1 set and although I was quite impressed at first, I am now having second thoughts.
One thing I did not realize is that these buds are quite old so there may be better now...
Another thing I just realized is that their price has apparently remained stable since at least 2008. I paid just 5$ less than their 2008 price. It sounds like a sign of quality.
I own a set of Shure SE-530 which I love and I even got the custom mold for them last year. I was actually surprized and somehow disappointed to realize that the custom molds are isolating less than the foams. Although more comfortable, I still cannot lay on my side with my head on the pillow without hurting my ears.
What lead me to search for the likes of the Yuin is that they are very comfortable to wear under any circumstance, are very easy to put on an off (for work it is perfect) and have a reputation of amazing soundstage and delivery, if properly amped.
For the moment and because of a lack of knowledge, I am still using the following to work with my headphones:
- Onkyo SR-308, fed by an optical output straight from the motherboard of my desktop.
- Iphone 4 alone or amped with a FiiO E11.
So, at the end, good choice or I could have had better?
