Someone posted a link to these in the PK3 appreciate thread but no one's replied, so I'll ask here. There are these PK3's that are apparently legit, except the seller has added a shielded cable. Considering I'm new to this whole audiophile world, I'm completely confused.
From what I've read online, the Yuin PK3s sound amazing, but they break easily, people saying things like "after a few months I lost sound in the right/left jack", etc etc. Now my two questions for you are:
1) Does whatever that guy did to the Yuin's actually help them last longer? In other words, will the problems other people ran into be something I ruin into? One thing I don't get (and this will be a STUPID question is) how does shielding the cable prevent something like losing sound in a particular jack? Doesn't that depend on the design of the jack itself and not the shielding of the cable?
2) Does it look legit? I HATE buying things like earphones on eBay because of the fakes but with this I'm not sure.
Thank you Head-Fi!
