For my office, I need a pair of earbuds that still allow me to hear my colleagues, my phone ringing etc. So IEM's are out of the question. Big headphones are also a no go; they are simply too large for that environment.
So not too long ago I purchased a set of Apple EarBuds. They are the first earbuds I ever used that had actual, real bass with impact (before I only had some lower Sennheiser MX-series and Marshall Minors). Not the "there are no mids so this crackling sound must be the bass" bass that most cheap earbuds have.
I am now looking for an upgrade, and the Yuin PK3 and PK2 seem really popular. I don't want to go too expensive, since they are only for office listening. I'm looking for a little more detail, maybe some soundstage and also a more "open" and sparkling sound than the darker EarPods.
My main questions is: how is the bass impact on the Yuin PK3 and PK2? Is there real impact or not?
Second question: based on the story above, any other recommendations apart from the Yuin?
Thanks a lot in advance for your responses!
