Decent earbuds needed (PK3 maybe?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking for a nice set of earbuds, not IEMs since I need to be aware of outside sounds. A pair that doesn't leak too much sound would be preferable 

 

I've been looking at the Yuin PK3s as I know they were very popular years ago but I haven't been around on audiophile websites in years. Are they still considered solid or are there better alternatives?

The trouble with the Yuin's is that they break very easily. I got some MX880's to replace them, amazing sound but crap fit, then MX580's (HUGE volume control) before settling on MX471's which have lasted two years and lots of sport+sweat.
I have some EarPods as well now, great bass but sound a bit 'tinny' and sibilant.

I have actually read mixed comments on the durability of Yuin PK3s

Maybe you can try looking at ebay for DIY Yuin ... I have 2 set and it has lasted almost 2 years and sound even better than the original. I think the seller is joco ..cheers.
